Our ambitions are high, for the challenge is great

Plastic Change is an international organization based in Denmark. We raise awareness about the consequences of the increasing plastic pollution of the oceans and the environment in general. We work with documentation, information, education and solutions to place plastic pollution on the agenda of the general public, the industry and the political system.


Our ambitions are high, for the challenge is great.

The amount of marine plastic waste will double over the next 10 years and if we do not act, the oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish by weight in 2050. Plastic Change is committed to reversing that trend.

Plastic Change consists of a permanent secretariat, which includes a management team, a staff of project managers and consultants as well as a large group of volunteers. All of those involved provide a very dedicated, invaluable and professional volunteer effort to allow the organization to realise its ambitions of breaking the vicious cycle of plastic pollution.
