Are you a built environment professional who sees the need to fight the plastic pollution crisis?
Join us in our mission to reduce the use of plastic on a global scale.
The manufacture and processing of plastic is carbon intensive. We need to address the link between plastic and achieving our net zero targets.
Plastic is everywhere. After packaging, the construction industry is the biggest consumer of plastic in the UK.
According to the latest reports the growth in plastic production is expected to triple by 2050. Waste is also a serious concern, as we generate circa 50,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste each year in the UK construction sector alone.
Join us to improve your company’s sustainable resilience and combat the critical impact of plastic on our environment and the species we share it with
Enhance your sustainability standing, showcase your corporate social responsibility and demonstrate your business is working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals
By becoming a member, you will support Changing Streams in our ambitious, yet achievable goal to make lasting positive change in the construction industry.
Achieving our goals with our membership community’s support will bring lasting benefits. Reducing plastic waste in construction positively affects oceans, wildlife, and our wider environment.
