WHAT’S NEW, WHAT’S HAPPENING & WHERE TO NEXT
It has been a few months since we last connected, not because we’ve had nothing to share, more that we simply haven’t had time to share it!
Since the last newsletter, we have rebuilt and launched a new Plastic Collective website and along with it a NEW Plastic Neutral Citizen Program!
If you haven’t visited the website lately, please go and check it out! While you’re there, check out the Blog and our “Understanding Plastic Series” for some great new resources and updates.
We are building strong collaborations, driving new initiatives on global plastic policy and are continuing to advocate for funding of community projects through grants and corporate partnerships.
Here are a few of the highlights for you below. Thanks for continuing to share in the journey!
The Plastic Collective Team
We have launched our Plastic Neutral Program!
Whether you’re an individual, business, organisation, club, school, association or any group of concerned citizens, you can make an individual or collective pledge to reduce your plastic footprint.

Where to Next?
This week, Louise and Steve Hardman (Chairman), will be back in Les Village in Bali to provide ongoing community support and training.
The Shruder Workshop in Les Village was made possible by the generous funding of TK Maxx UK. TK Maxx has expressed their continued commitment to support the project as the community builds on this wonderful opportunity they’ve been gifted. We look forward to continue working with them in the New Year.
Can you sponsor a community? Our Partnership Program connects communities with companies, like TK Maxx, who are committed to supporting practical economic and environmental solutions for a healthier, cleaner world through social responsibility and sustainability goals. A sponsored Shruder program for a community like Les Village, struggling with plastic, will provide the machinery, tools and educational training needed to create real economic opportunity and reduce plastic pollution in remote, disadvantaged regions.
