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!

Hello! We’re Amy and Ella Meek, aged 16 and 14, 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)

Supporting The Global Goals and #iWILL.

 

Wooooooooooooooohoooooooo!!!!!! 👊👊👊👊👊👊👊👊👊🏁🏁🏁🏁

A huge performance from @RFrijns and @sambirdofficial 🙌

Learning about Climate Change

| Blog, Learn
Climate change is the long-term shift in average weather patterns across the world. Humans have contributed to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air through a range of practices, including burning fossil fuels, driving vehicles or industry. Scientists believe that this is contributing to increased global temperatures and long-term changes to climate. We have detailed a range of sources of information to support teachers and to support children with their own research and then we have directed to teaching and learning resources that can be used in the classroom, or for home learning.
