City to Sea


Mission Statement

Connecting our actions to our oceans and preventing plastic pollution at source.


City to Sea is an environmental not-for-profit campaigning to stop plastic pollution. Our vision is for the world's waterways and coastlines to be strewn with sticks, sand and seaweed … not plastic!
Our award-campaigns are tackling the single-use plastic items found most commonly on our beaches and in our oceans by providing practical, solutions-focused initiatives and advocating reuse over single-use.
City to Sea's mission is to connect our actions to the oceans, by giving people and businesses from all backgrounds simple ways to reduce their use of single-use plastic.
By working with communities, corporates and retailers we're inspiring and empowering everyone to tackle plastic pollution.
We are behind the award-winning Refill Campaign, which is estimated to have prevented 100 million plastic bottles from entering our waste stream by 2019 and Switch the Stick – a campaign which successfully persuaded all major supermarkets and high street stores to #SwitchTheStick– replacing plastic stemmed cotton buds with paper. A move which will stop over 478 tonnes of single-use, non-recyclable plastic being produced each year!
