Rubbish plastic pledge

Take the plastic pledge and help stop the rubbish

Join the Rubbish Campaign by taking the Plastic Pledge to give up using one single-use plastic item for 40 days (or more!). Every single-use plastic item we save is one less thing in a landfill site, ocean or incinerator – or one less thing shipped overseas for another country to dispose of.

The most common items include disposable cups, drinks bottles, non-recyclable packaging, wipes and female sanitary products. Finding alternatives to these plastics is easier than you might think!

Sign up today and we will email you our top tips on getting started.
