Our vision is of a zero-waste UK, where plastic bags and other throwaway plastics are a thing of the past, leading the way to a zero-waste world.
Our mission is to work with others, including consumers, community and national groups and charities, retailers and politicians, to reduce waste and pollution by encouraging alternatives to plastic, as well as re-use and re-cycling.
As part of Break The Bag Habit, we campaigned for England to introduce a charge on all single use bags in all shops. That way we could cut down on the litter that clogs our streets, our oceans and our earth.
The government has announced a 5p charge from 2015 on single use plastic bags in England, but it's not in the bag yet! Check out our Twitter feed and our Facebook page for updates - and take the pledge to Break the Bag Habit (links to all these above).
