Plastic Free Network

There is lots of great work being done around the world by organisations and individuals to support efforts to reduce plastic waste. We’ve put together a list from our network to provide further information and resources as well as connecting people to organisations in their area. Many of them are featured in our book Plastic Free: The Inspiring Story of a Global Environmental Movement and Why It Matters by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz and Joanna Atherfold Finn.
