City to Sea is a not-for-profit organisation, campaigning to stop plastic pollution. We tackle the single-use plastic items most found on our beaches, and in our rivers and oceans. We focus on stopping plastic at source by reducing demand, so our beaches won’t need to be cleaned in the future.
We run people-powered, community serving campaigns and develop simple solutions to complicated problems. We believe collective action is key to lasting behaviour change and encourage everyone to rethink, refuse, reduce and reuse across all our campaigns.
We are now a team of 27 located all over England & Wales, with Bristol as our home. We’re made up of everyday people doing extraordinary things – we’re campaigners, activists, volunteers, academics, influencers, techies, strategists, creatives, partnership managers, social marketers and so much more!
We’re behind the award-winning Refill Campaign, which has saved 100 million plastic bottles from entering our waste stream so far, #SwitchTheStick which has prevented over 478 tonnes of single-use, plastic-stemmed cotton buds being produced each year, and
