Our Solution

Single use plastic in the environment is a big problem which is both acute and avoidable...

Our key solution, is to unite all Olympic and professional athletes around the globe around this topic and drive the changes needed. This global influence will be like no other force. Athletes have the power to educate and engage their fans around important topics. They can work directly with brands through sponsorship and can influence changes. They can support event organisers in the first phase of our work, to eliminate single-use.

This campaign has the huge potential to reach billions of people, the more people we can engage with our goal, the more unified and aligned we are, the bigger reach we have, the more awareness we create and the more pressure we can put on larger corporations, governments and industries to change plastic waste left.

Global Partnerships

We don’t want to recreate the wheel, there are already some amazing organisations, individuals and brands doing incredible work in this field. We want to work with these people to help them achieve their goals and inspire others to take up their own initiatives.

We are lucky to be supported by the International Olympic Committee and Clean Seas.
