Filled with facts about the dangers of plastics, as well as tips on what you can do to help, it's the ultimate practical guide to ridding the world of single-use plastics from two young activists.
Amy and Ella Meek (16 and 14 years old) founded their campaign and charity, Kids Against Plastic, in 2016 after learning about the UN's Global Goals For Sustainable Development and in particular the recurring issue of plastic pollution. Their mission to make a difference started out as a home-school project and has since become an award-winning charity, that has encouraged over 186 schools and over 50 businesses, councils, cafes and even the Houses of Parliament, to become Plastic Clever, and seen over 60,000 pieces of plastic picked up!
