Do you have an innovative project that tackles plastic pollution?
Waitrose & Partners is launching a £1 million grant fund to support innovative projects which tackle plastic pollution. Are you up for the challenge? Apply for funding by the 24th February 2019.
The Waitrose & Partners Plan Plastic: The Million Pound Challenge aims to cut plastic pollution in the UK, reducing the amount of unnecessary plastic used and by tackling littered plastic. Our fund will give grants between £150,000 to £300,000 to innovative projects that rethink how we all use and dispose of plastic. We’re looking for a small number of projects to support over one year, starting in April 2019. Projects will be selected by a Grant Panel, made up of independent experts on plastics, grant making, social enterprise and a senior representative from Waitrose & Partners.
We would like to fund projects which will have a significant measurable impact on plastic pollution (now or in the future), and a clear legacy, and we will openly share all learnings, results and outputs to enable others to build on, replicate and amplify the impact. We’re working in partnership with environmental charity Hubbub to administer the grant.
