Widely known for their multi-award-winning film, ‘A Plastic Ocean’ on Netflix. Founded in 2009 by Jo Ruxton after working as a Producer at the BBC Natural History Unit, Jo has been praised and supported by Sir David Attenborough, who has called her the leader of this movement currently happening in Plastic Pollution prevention.
Plastic Free July
Based in Perth Australia, the idea of #PlasticFreeJuly came to the founder Rebecca Pruiz after a visit to a recycling centre in 2011. She came back to her office and suggested they go plastic free, for just one month. Fast forward to 2019 and they have encouraged millions of individuals to commit to reducing their plastic use in over 170 countries worldwide
City To Sea
City to Sea is an award-winning not-for-profit campaigning to prevent plastic pollution at source. It was founded in 2015 by campaigner and author Natalie Fee – after watching a moving trailer for ‘Midway’ by Chris Jordan, she decided she needed to do something to prevent plastic pollution at source. This growing organisation, based in Bristol has already become a leader in the UK with successful campaigns such as Switch the Stick, Refill and Plastic Free Periods. I’ve been part of the team since 2015.
