However, as they are fully synthetic, plastics pose a massive risk to nature. With an extremly long life cycle. WASUP are aiming to reduce our plastic use to improve the environment, for all children.

Practical Ways to Help

Help Prevent the usage of Single Use Plastics

Stop Using Single Use Plastic

The simplest way to help is to cease using single-use plastics. Then there is no chance that they end up in the ocean. A simple way to start is when you go to the supermarket, take your own bags.


Ensure that plastic to be discarded is put into the correct bin and is not contaminated eg. with mayonnaise or other food. Recycled plastics can be reused, making even more products.


There are always projects to help clean the streets and canals of Walsall. Getting in at ground level will help rid the area of plastic waste. Check out our social media pages for upcoming events or email for more info.
