Join us in our mission to eradication of the use of plastic on a global scale
Changing Streams is a not for profit company established to deliver significant environmental change.
Starting with the construction and associated industries, our aim is the eradication of the use of plastic on a global scale.
By becoming a member of Changing Streams you will help us to raise awareness of the global plastic problem and to fund research into the development of environmentally friendly alternatives to ensure a better future for the generations following.
How will we do this?
We will work with other industry groups to assist in lobbying the private and public sectors to facilitate policy change which will move the construction sector towards a plastic-free world. We will:
Actively research and support the development and use of sustainable alternatives to current plastic components in building
Encourage dissemination of information about these alternatives
Develop a knowledge platform to identify both materials in use which contain plastic and currently available alternative materials
Actively encourage members to support and engage in this research
Identify partners to work in the development of sustainable alternatives to plastic
Work proactively to develop funding streams to support the commercialisation of such research
Develop pathways to assess and implement use in appropriate applications in the construction industry
Develop workshops to raise awareness regarding the use and implications of plastic in the ecosystem.
Collaboration works. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. If your vision of the future is similar to ours, together we will have more influence.
