NOTICE TO OUR SUPPORTERS

Please take note that we are currently not taking plastic from our drop off points in town – we can’t believe how much enthusiasm we’ve received from the public, but unfortunately that enthusiasm is too much for our small team to keep up with. We are currently trying to identify funding so that we will be able to cope with the demand when we re-open our collection points. 

We would like to thank Sip & Tuck, Caffe Sala, Crouch St. Bakes, Wild at Spirit, Best Days Vintage, The Nourish Co. and We Walk the Line CIC for hosting our collection points.

Whilst we are working hard to find funding for this part of our project, we are continuing to create our movable workshop, raise awareness of plastic pollution, and (of course) clean and recycle the plastic we have already collected! Check out the rest of our website to see what we are currently working on, and keep up to date with our project by following us on social media.

WHAT WASHES AWAY SOMEWHERE
WASHES UP SOMEWHERE ELSE

This August, Replastic is putting on an exhibition that demonstrates how we are all connected through plastic pollution. We are building connections between places across the world by asking people to send washed up plastic from their local beach.

We are relying on amazing humans to send us plastic…

Cant you help us?
