Guidance: how to start an internal plastic champions network
This guide is for anyone thinking of setting up a plastic champions network in their workplace.
There are many benefits to being a plastic champion. Feedback from plastic champions include: ‘making a difference by working together’, ‘making any difference, however small, to my learning regarding plastics and the education of others’ and ‘knowing there are like-minded people who have great ideas’.
The Environment Agency’s Plastic Champions Network (PCN) is a national network of 600+ people across 39 government departments which connects, inspires and supports individuals who are passionate about tackling plastic pollution. The team, who created and mange the PCN, has pulled together this step by step how to guide to inspire other organisations to mobilise their workforces and help us prevent plastic pollution.
