a charity setup by kids, for kids

Kids Against Plastic is all about taking action against plastic pollution

We’d love to see as many people as possible doing their bit.

Here are some ways we can help you get involved!

Check out our series about Climate Change

Hello! We’re Amy and Ella Meek, aged 17 and 15, and the founders of Kids Against Plastic! 

Not long ago we came across the UN’s Global Goals and got inspired to do our bit for the planet, and after finding out about the negative effect single-use plastic is having on the environment, we launched the Kids Against Plastic campaign.

Our charity has three main aims that we hope to achieve  through: EDUCATION (learning) and ACTION (doing)

Proudly supporting …

Happy #WorldOceansDay!! KCI is hosting our second #SpeakClimate contest, giving you a chance to win $1,000 to donate to the organization of your choice! Head to our Instagram to find out how to enter! ⬇️ @emilypenn
