Last year our efforts were mainly focused on the Netherlands, and more than 1,500 people accepted the challenge! The success and active participation were overwhelming. People were blogging about their daily experiences, sharing creative solutions and tips on social media, and the ZeroPlasticWeek was extensively covered in local, regional, and national media, in newspapers, and on TV and Radio.
In order to make the ZeroPlasticWeek this year an even bigger success on a global scale, we are looking for ambassadors from every imaginable place in the world. And that’s were you come in!
Can you help us in at least one or all of the ways suggested below?
- Social media: We use Facebook and Twitter to keep people informed, share information, tips, and tricks. We are looking for people to create national Twitter accounts, Facebook event pages, etc. and administer them for their respective countries (e.g. Zero Plastic Week France)
- Press officers: We will send out 2 press releases leading up to the week. These need to be translated and sent out as widely as possible to the media. Besides that we are looking for people that can be press contacts in their country.
- Spread the word: Make people sign up in the street, put up booths at festivals, create events to promote the week, etc.
Any help is welcome! If you can offer your support, please send us a message with at least your name, contact details and the help you can offer to
Note: We are a group of concerned citizens. We are all volunteers. We are mainly self-funded and seek funds only from organisations and companies that are working to reduce our impact on this earth. We welcome each and every way that people want to help spread the challenge and make this year an even bigger success on a global scale. We only ask that any activity regarding ZeroPlasticWeek is done in a friendly, respectful and peaceful way as we want to engage people and get them involved. Unfortunately at this point we cannot offer any funding of any kind, only our help, guidance, tips and tricks.
Plastic free greetings,

We hope to cease the stream of waste by tackling the problem at its origin: consuming less plastic. We are not against all plastic, but mainly the unnecessary wrappings and plastic bags which often serve no purpose. Our mission is to live in balance with our environment. Isn’t that what we all want? Our ultimate goal?
