A global Alliance of

Fighting Single-Use Plastics

PLASTIC PROBLEM

We use it every day – we throw it away every day. Plastic pollution is one of the most dramatic environmental problems of our time – we’re talking about a material which was merely created to be thrown away but almost lasts forever, because it doesn’t decompose – it only breaks up into little parts, so called „microplastics“.
 
We’re about to hand down a planet full of plastic rubbish to future generations. We have to stop this right now – and we are in the lucky position to actually be able to do so. Because every day we make decisions. Just like this it’s possible to change our daily habits and just say no to single-use plastics.

There are many alternatives to single-use plastics. Use them.

MISSION

PLASTAWAY is a modern NGO run by an alliance of creatives and opinion leaders from the areas of media, politic, sports and entertainment aiming to inspire people from all around the world to avoid single-use plastics.
 
By becoming a worldwide movement PLASTAWAY will join forces with international celebrities to create viral educational campaigns and social-media projects. We’ll bring together NGOs, brands, celebrities and influencers to generate the highest reach possible.

We can change our daily habits and learn to reduce plastic.
