Do One Small Thing

Reduce Single-Use Plastic

Do one small thing to help with the terrible images of plastic pollution around the world, at this point we almost immune to them. Even statistics that tell us how EVERYDAY 8 million tonnes of plastic finds its way into our oceans, have lost their ability to shock. That’s why we created One Small Thing to highlight some of the small everyday things we can all do to reduce our use of plastic and together, motivate and encourage others to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle too.

Never Think That You Can’t Make a Difference

“The actions of just one of us may seem to be trivial and to have no effect. But the knowledge that there are thousands, hundreds of thousands of people doing the same thing that really does have an effect…”

– Sir David Attenborough
