Join the move to #PledgeLessPlastic for World Environment Day

World Environment Day takes place on Tuesday 5 June, with the topical theme of ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.


IEMA is supporting the day – organised and promoted by the United Nations – and members can get involved in a number of ways, thanks to a range of resources and the opportunity to #PledgeLessPlastic.

The range of resources, from inspiring case studies to toolkits, event inspiration and pledge cards, was launched in May to support members, their family, friends and organisations to tackle the scourge of single-use plastics. IEMA is encouraging all members to use and share the resource kit on, before and after World Environment Day. Members are especially urged to make their own pledges on social media with the easy-to use pledge cards and the #PledgeLessPlastic hashtag.

In further support of the day, a number of the Regional Networks are holding World Environment Day events on 5 June. Members can book onto a free webinar –  ‘Beat Plastic Pollution, If You Can’t Re-use It, Refuse It’ –  on Tuesday 5 June 2018, 12:30-13:30 GMT.

IEMA will make pledges on Twitter over the next month, including welcome news on the oxo-degradable plastic used to deliver your monthly copy of TRANSFORM

The #PledgeLessPlastic campaign and range of resources has been created in partnership with corporate members and partners.
