Kids against Plastic site has been set up by two young people inspired to do their bit for the planet after finding out about the negative effect single-use plastic is having on the environment. They are aiming to raise awareness of the problems caused by plastic misuse, encourage others to become ‘Plastic Clever’ and reduce single-use plastics and empower young people to believe they can make a difference.
