Less Plastic Talks & Workshops
Want to make a difference to ocean plastic?
You can make a huge impact by persuading your organisation to use less plastic - and we can help you with this mission.
Our talks and workshops share our practical five-step framework to become a Plastic Game Changer; enabling you to accelerate your organisation's plastic reduction efforts.
We recognise that zero waste perfection is likely to be too difficult for the majority of organisations, resulting in no action at all.
Therefore, we focus on significantly reducing plastic - especially single-use plastic - which is more achievable and able to be implemented more quickly.
We help you identify the quick-wins and biggest impact areas. We also guide you through the confusing maze of alternatives - avoiding 'green-washing' - enabling you to choose the most sustainable options to meet your needs.
We share invaluable insights from Plastic Game Changers in a variety of sectors who wish to amplify their impact by sharing best practice; and we highlight how you can show leadership and enjoy some unexpected benefits by doing the same once you've implemented the Plastic Game Changer 5Ps in your organisation.

"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."

"We have partnered with Less Plastic to enable our company to become a ‘Plastic Game Changer’ in the hospitality industry and eliminate single-use plastics from our operation. Our first challenge was to communicate and align all our employees to this goal, Amanda’s talk achieved this and was the ideal first step. Interesting, informative and empowering. We highly recommend."

"A huge thank you for your time, expertise and enthusiasm yesterday. As I think you saw from the packed out auditorium, your panel was very much the show stopper of the afternoon, and I feel it could have gone on for hours had we had time! We have had wonderful feedback, and cannot thank you enough for making the afternoon so interesting, and seeing it out with a bang!"
Sacha Bonsor, Editor-in-Chief, BOAT International Media
"I just attended your webinar and wanted to say how inspiring it was. You have reignited my passion to make a difference and inspire others too. I have now written my list of actions personally and for work. I'd already planned to engage with local schools and get my team to join beach cleans this year, but your talk has given me even more inspiration to make it the best yet. Thank you!"
