Plastic pollution is getting out of hand. Here are the shocking facts.
- There are 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste on Earth
- Plastic in the oceans is estimated to be about 150 million tonnes
- Plastic will outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050
- 1 million plastic bottles are sold every minute around the world
So what are the worst offenders?

We have a passion for changing these statistics. It can't happen overnight but if we all stop using single use plastic and change to reusable, environmentally friendly alternatives we can bring about change.
We aim to bring you the best of the plastic alternatives from around the world so that you can swap, one item at a time.
We search for items that are traditionally made from plastic so that you can swap to an eco-friendly, biodegradable version.
Many people tell us that they don't know where to start. It's not easy to become completely plastic free overnight but easy swaps that we can all make gradually will, in the long run, make a difference to our health and our planet!
