Save the ocean from plastic pollution
Turning plastic waste into paving tiles and other useful products means people can support themselves in the long-term. Trainees will create green jobs, keep the environment healthy and prevent marine plastic pollution.
The WasteAid training programme will enable people living in poverty to become self-sufficient and to create a cleaner living environment for future generations.
£6 doubled will stop 20,000 plastic bags reaching the ocean each year.
£30 doubled will stop 100,000 plastic bags reaching the ocean each year.
£300 doubled will stop a million plastic bags reaching the ocean, each year.
