Want to make a difference to the ocean plastic crisis?

You can make a really big impact by persuading your company to use less plastic – and we’re here to help you with your mission.

There’s nothing we love more than sharing our plastic reduction expertise with individuals and organisations who are open to making some positive changes.

Our talks and workshops apply proven behaviour change strategies, tools and techniques that will enable your colleagues to successfully use less plastic in both their professional roles and their personal lives.

With over 320 million tonnes of plastic produced globally each year, and recycling failing to address the enormous plastic waste problem that’s piling up daily and destined to last for centuries – we need organisations everywhere to act urgently to significantly reduce their plastic usage.

With plastic there is no ‘away’. We all have a responsibility to use as little plastic as realistically possible, so that less plastic ends up polluting our natural environment and disrupting our ecosystems.

Our pragmatic approach recognises that zero waste perfection is likely to be too difficult for the majority of individuals and organisations, and striving for this could risk overwhelm, resulting in no action at all.

Therefore, we focus on using significantly less plastic, which is more achievable for the mainstream. We highlight the biggest impact areas that will add up to make a huge difference to the annual plastic waste you generate.

Add these plastic savings to those made by many other individuals and organisations following the same path, and we will see a seismic shift in our global plastic usage.

“You’ll be delighted to hear that someone who came to your Plastic Game Changer talk immediately challenged her team to become the first plastic-free team at UBS – using your 5 Ps to form the basis of the plan. Other teams have stepped up too so the race is on! I’m so pleased your talk has helped to inspire this kind of behavioural shift.”
