a charity setup by kids, for kids

Our Aims

Kids Against Plastic aims to help young people (and not so young people) to learn about environmental issues such as plastic pollution and the Climate Crisis.

Through free resources, initiatives and the awesome KAP Club, we try to inspire and empower others into action.

Thank you for visiting, we really appreciate it.

Amy & Ella

TEDx Geneva

Amy’s latest TEDx talk from Geneva.

Who are the Cor! Team?

“Cor” is a slang expression used to show amazement or admiration. And our Cor! team members certainly amaze us on a weekly if not daily basis with their courage, commitment and passion to do their bit to make the world a better place.

They are also the ‘core’ of the charity who inspire and motivate Amy and Ella to keep going – they make it all worth while.

Through the Cor! Team program, Amy works closely to help the budding KAP leaders get more involved with the charity.

Big thanks to: Thomas – Chief Scout Officer (CSO), Inaaya – Chief Voices Officer (CVO), Ali – Chief Pickup Officer (CPO) and Skye – Chief Campaings Officer (CCO)

No matter how big or how small, we all have our own part to play in making the planet a better place. The biggest barrier to overcoming the Climate Crisis or plastic pollution is to think that someone else will take the action needed.

Here are some ways you can join in and start making a difference, today.
