What can we do?
We’ve teamed up with Greenpeace UK to scrutinise how supermarkets are responding to this crisis. We’re asking for large reductions in the overall amount of single-use plastic packaging, the introduction of refillable packaging, and urgent elimination of non-recyclable plastics. Our campaigners are working to ensure commitments from the UK’s largest supermarkets to make these reductions possible.
Watch our Supermarket Survey awards video to find out how they’re doing so far:
We’re also working with like-minded organisations to secure new UK and European policy measures on reducing plastic pollution from single-use plastics and fishing gear. Looking forward, our ambition is to secure a legally binding global agreement on marine plastic pollution.
It’s going to take a lot of work, but we hope you share our vision of a future with a clean, healthy and thriving ocean.
Without drastic action, by 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Please help us protect our planet by making a gift today.
Your donation not only supports our work on marine plastic pollution, but also all our other vital campaigns to preserve the natural world for future generations.
