Plastic free events

We’ve created a guide on how to plan and deliver plastic free events.

The guide gives you advice on alternatives to commonly used plastic items at events, like plastic bags, straws, coffee cups and lids, water bottles and food packaging.

More plastic has been produced in the last ten years than the 100 years prior. About 40 per cent of the plastics we consume as individuals are single-use. Plastic is made from fossil fuels like oil, natural gas and even coal. Therefore, the use of plastics is contributing to climate change.

It’s up to all of us to do our bit – many small changes do add up.

You can download the guide here.

Here are some fun posters that you can use in your business - or at your event - to discourage people from using single-use plastic straws:
