A Plastic Planet believes in the power of business to affect seismic change, creating Plastic Free Hackathons within global giants such as Unilever. They influenced the UK 2018 Budget with their proposal to tax virgin plastic and capped off the year by partnering with a London supermarket to make 1800 products plastic free within 10 weeks, highlighting the slow pace of change within the big chains. Joining the Plastic Health Coalition strengthens their shared goal to inform people that plastic is not only affecting our oceans, our soil, our air but impacting the health of future generations.
