Plastic Free Israel is a grassroots movement that was started by one person who believes that everyone has the ability to help the environment in one way or another.
Plastic pollution is infiltrating our planet at an alarming rate. We’ve produced more plastic in the last ten years than we did in the entire century prior. We’ve created enough waste to fill four Mount Everests. We’re throwing the equivalent of one garbage truck full of trash being dumped into our oceans every minute - a rate that is predicted to double by 2050, if not sooner.
We will have oceans filled with more plastic than fish. Enough is enough.
We say: don’t despair. While the plastic pollution problem needs to be tackled from multiple angles, everyone can be a part of the solution. It comes down to two simple things:
1. Reducing our waste by saying no to the biggest single-use plastic polluters out there: cups, straws, bottles, lids, bags, plates, and silverware.
2. Picking up trash. It doesn’t have to have been your trash and you don’t have to spend all day doing it - picking up a few pieces here or there is one step towards making a difference. We are all role models for the people around us!
If you’re interested in volunteering, collaborating, hosting a cleanup, or just have some ideas for the page; or if you're an Israel-based business that offers sustainable solutions or alternatives - get in touch!

Be part of the solution, not the pollution
Plastic Free Israel aims to educate, motivate and inspire individuals to be role models for the planet. We also want to help businesses make more sustainable choices and reduce their plastic - and other waste - as much as possible.
We aim to create a sustainable, conscious, plastic-free culture in Israel. We believe in the importance of preserving the environment and the need to reduce our dependence on plastics. We strive to educate and empower individuals and communities to make positive changes in their daily lives and to create a healthier, more sustainable future.
