Every minute a truck-load of plastic enters our oceans – choking turtles, birds and other marine life.  We’re littering the planet and prolonging our addiction to fossil fuels.

But we can all do our bit to help. Going plastic-free on Fridays is a small step to making a huge difference to the amount of single-use plastic that ends up in our seas and oceans.

And if enough of us start choosing plastic-free products it will send a strong message to companies and governments that they need to do more too.

Take the Friends of the Earth Scotland pledge to join thousands of others going plastic-free on Fridays.
