A CLEAN WORLD,
FREE FROM PLASTIC POLLUTION
BUILDING A MOVEMENT TO CHANGE CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR
Trash Hero supports community action groups, run by local volunteers. We offer hands-on learning about the environmental impact of our everyday waste, open to anyone to join. Our focus is on single-use plastic and providing simple solutions to reduce or avoid its use.
Each of these groups, or chapters, is grounded in its local community but is also part of the global Trash Hero network. By organising in this way, we can share resources and create a wider momentum for social change.
Trash Hero GB is a cornerstone of the network. We provide vital programme support and coordination for our projects in Southeast Asia: Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia and Singapore. Many of these countries have recently been burdened with thousands of tonnes of our rubbish exported from the UK, escalating their existing waste crisis.
OUR Core Programmes
Inspiring action on plastic waste
Our core programme focuses on gathering the community together in weekly clean up actions in coastal and urban areas.
The Trash Hero bottle refill programme seeks to reduce the need to for buying plastic water bottles and provide a safe, reusable drink container along with a free refill network wherever possible.
Launched in 2018, our kids programme gives primary school children the ‘why’ & ‘how’ of taking action on plastic pollution and motivates them to become a Trash Hero in their everyday lives.
