Plastic game changer: How to Reduce Plastic in your Organization to Make a Difference to Plastic Pollution

At Leap, we’ve known Amanda for a couple of years after being introduced at an event by Hugo from Surfers Against Sewage. Amanda’s tenacity for change and simple plastic reducing actions has been hugely beneficial to so many around the world, and we’re proud to share the launch of Amanda’s new book.

We’ll be sharing soon a combined piece of work we recently produced for Action Nan Pat Smith of Bosinver and Final Straw where Amanda helped with stats and facts. Keep a lookout on our socials for our ‘Plastic is not so fantastic’ showcase.

Our beautiful oceans are filling with plastic; devastating marine wildlife and disrupting fragile ecosystems. It is also threatening to become a human health disaster.

Plastic pollution awareness is higher than ever, yet most companies still generate too much plastic waste with their business-as-usual approach. This book inspires positive action with its five-step framework to accelerate business plastic reduction efforts, along with insights from five real-world plastic game changers, from a variety of industries, who share how they have done it too.

Plastic Game Changer is a practical guide for professionals who want to make a difference to plastic pollution. It will appeal to CEOs, HR leaders, Sustainability leaders and people at all levels who feel compelled to do something meaningful to tackle the ocean plastic crisis.
