Thank you to the amazing NHS staff who continue to care for those most in need at this difficult time.

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.

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

         GET INVOLVED … do your bit          

welcome

Aims

  • Raise awareness and understanding of the problems caused by plastic misuse
  • 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.
