a charity setup by kids, for kids
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.
GET INVOLVED … do your bit

- Encourage and support others to become ‘Plastic Clever’ and reduce single-use plastics
- Empower children and young people to believe they can make a difference
Thank you for visiting Kids Against Plastic.
