Who are we?
Plastic Oceans UK address the issue of plastic pollution and how it impacts our waters, sea life and humans.
We work with businesses, scientists, schools and policy-makers to change attitudes and behaviours toward plastic.
More than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year and our addiction to single-use is to blame.
It’s not an option to let that statistic worsen.

More about Plastic Oceans UK


Plastic Oceans UK have been experts on plastic pollution for a decade, starting with award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean. It’s been named by Sir David Attenborough as ‘one of the most important films of our time’ and has ignited mass consumer awareness.

Our Education Programme

We have a problem in the UK – most teachers receive little or no training on the topic of plastic pollution and ocean health. We aim to solve the problem with the materials and knowledge they require.

Our education microsite provides free educational resources for all key stages, which can embed straight into the curriculum.

The Importance of Science

We have always believed it essential that any information we release is backed by peer-reviewed science. When producing A Plastic Ocean, we created our ‘Science Behind the Film’ document to substantiate any of the film’s findings. Through our relationships with leading scientists, we can fund reports into emerging solutions and use information as a source for our education packs.

Sustainability – Working With Business

Whether in products or packaging, plastic us used by a broad range of commercial organisations, producing products for consumers and business. We work with a wide range of companies, to help them adapt to changing customer demands whilst reducing their plastic footprints.

There’s no reason why you can’t prosper commercially whilst protecting our oceans.
