Welcome to “The Green Room”

Every single country is part of this plastics & air pollution crisis

And every single one must be part of the solution. We need a united global response, with the world’s governments made accountable for ending marine, rivers, air and land pollution.

By coming together to tackle plastic & air pollution, we can show that powerful, collective action to restore nature is possible.

Simple Facts

  • 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year
  • 1 in 2 Marine Turtles have eaten plastic
  • 90% of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs
  • Around 7 million coffee cups are thrown away in the UK every day
  • UK supermarkets currently generate 800,000 tonnes of plastic packaging every year
  • There may now be around 5.25 trillion macro and microplastic pieces floating in the open ocean
  • 91% of plastic waste isn’t recycled. And since most plastics don’t biodegrade in any meaningful sense, all that plastic waste could exist for hundreds or even thousands of years
