THE KAP TEAM
Meet the kids (and big kids!) behind the charity
Amy is a passionate environmentalist who started her action against plastic waste at 12 years old. Alongside her work with Kids Against Plastic, Amy is a keen writer, penning pieces for newspapers such as the Daily Mirror, and advises as part of the University of Hull’s EEI Youth Advisory Board.
Ella is a campaigner for the reduction of plastic pollution in our oceans and waterways, having started her activism journey at only 10 years old. She is an animal lover through and through, with seeing the horrific pictures of animals entangled in plastic being one of the key reasons for her passion in tackling plastic waste.

Inaaya is a keen environmentalist whose action is defying her young age! She’s presented to her local politician about how her local area can be greener, has appeared on TV to speak about her action, hosts her own radio program every 2 weeks, and is on a mission to make her school plastic free – she’s already managed to get her school to get rid of plastic water bottles. Check out more of what Inaaya’s up to:
Raven was inspired to take action for the environment when by climate hero, Greta Thunberg. Raven enjoys litter picking and also talks to kids about climate change. It’s super important that we educate people about the climate crisis and plastic pollution, especially kids, so they know what’s going on in our world and how they can help!

He entered his local fancy dress competition in a costume he made himself from plastic rubbish, with the slogan ‘the sea is not a dustbin’, and went on to win it!

The BIG Kids Against Plastic
