I am putting together a UK BASED  directory of groups, people, organisations, businesses and anyone else interested in tackling the consequent problems of our misuse of plastic.

But why? you might ask.

You already blog, at some considerable length about this very problem, offer all kinds of useful plastic free tips and have put together huge list of plastic free products. What more can you possibly want to say on the subject?

Well that’s just it. My blog, my rules – that’s how it should be. But my rules of course aren’t the only ones. For example – recycling! In the plastic free world there are those who think it is practically green washing, an excuse to consume yet more plastic. Then there are others who promote it as the saviour. I want a forum on which to post both arguments undiluted by my own opinions (GREENWASHING!!!!).

Also, chatty as I am, I cant say everything that needs saying on the subject. Nor do I know it all. No, really, I don’t. There are others out there – experts in their field who I would love to feature.

And as the number of plastic related projects and plastic free products increase I  cannot keep up. I do not have the time to review them all nor the capacity. The directory is a place where people can present their own work. Obviously I cannot vouch for it but the plastic free world is a pretty honourable place.

Finally time will come when I am back on the road trying to access the internet from some remote dusty spot on a computer held together with string. Before I want to go I want to contribute to the growing plastic debate by helping build a plastic free community. As well as supporting and promoting each other, the aim is show others that there is a market for plastic free products and services and a growing concern about the problems of plastic abuse.

So blog for me, directory for everyone else: What they do in their words -a resource for anyone who wants to know who is who and what is what in this plastically challenged world.

Have a project you think should be featured? Submit….

BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
