Plastic pollution sticks around for ages with horrible effects on wildlife and the environment.
Every minute a truck load of our plastic enters our oceans. Sea creatures can get tangled up in it or mistake it for food.
But we can all do our bit to help.
Going plastic free on Fridays is a small step you can take to make a real difference to the amount of single-use plastic that ends up in the ocean.
Whether it’s buying shampoo bars or drinking from a reusable water bottle, there are loads of easy ways to start cutting out plastic.
Take the pledge to join thousands of others going plastic free on Fridays and we’ll send you tips to help you go plastic free this summer.
