Join the call to get a nationwide strategy that will eliminate single-use plastic pollution here in Aotearoa.


Sign on now to get the Government to adopt a national strategy to eliminate plastic pollution in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The problem

Plastic pollution is choking our oceans, and putting the creatures that call them home at risk. We need a plan to stop it! Around the world, people and governments are taking bold action, but some of their plans still don’t go far enough. Meanwhile, big corporations like Coca Cola, keep on churning plastic out at break neck speed.

The solution

In New Zealand, we got a ban on plastic bags, but that’s just the beginning. Together we’ve created a vision to tackle the scale of plastic pollution in Aotearoa, that calls on the Government to step up – and forces corporate polluters to clean up their act. Read the plan, sign-on and take action with us!
