We live in a plastic world. Everything we buy is shrink-wrapped, double-bagged or cling-film coated, and it’s having an impact. Forty per cent of all the plastic made every year is made to be thrown away, and as a result our oceans and natural spaces are drowning in a sea of waste.

The Plastic Diaries is your daily reminder that there is a life beyond and outside this plastic bubble, and that we are empowered to break free.
