Futures Forum: UN Ocean Conference >>> a 'game-changer' in cutting plastic pollution
We can try and do something about it:
Futures Forum: Cutting plastic from your weekly shop
Here are a lot of ideas from the Marine Conservation Society's 'Plastic Challenge':
The Plastic Challenge!
Giving up single-use plastics, whilst raising money to fight plastic litter.
A day, a week, a month - how long can you last?
1st - 30th June 2017
We have a vision of a world where plastics don't end up in our seas and on our beaches, where they persist and impact our marine life. Read more >>
The Plastic Challenge isn't all about living completely plastic free - in this day and age that would be pretty near impossible.
We hope Plastic Challengers will try to reduce their plastic footprint in all sorts of ways.

The amount of litter on our beaches is rising annually
As a charity MCS needs your help to ensure we can continue to organise beach cleans, work with industry and governments on finding solutions to the problem, and keep the issue of marine litter in the public eye.
Your fundraising through this life changing challenge is vital:
- £400 will help us bring together experts to rethink packaging.
- £150 can help us investigate more brands that use microplastics in their health and beauty products, and get them to stop.
- £50 can help us promote simple changes in behaviour that make a big difference.
- £20 could equip two MCS volunteers to survey rubbish on our beaches, influencing government policy on marine litter.
However you decide to raise funds, our fundraising team is here to support you.
