Mission
Our mission is to EDUCATE, INSPIRE and SUPPORT people to take action on the issue of plastic pollution.
What we Do
An average New Zealander creates 3.68 kg of waste EVERY DAY. One day, we looked around us and all the rubbish around and though – FORK THAT! Fork Plastic is part of the movement fighting plastic pollution. We do this via raising awareness and supporting people whose ideas and solutions will give us alternatives or help us dealing with existing plastic pollution related issues. We buy t-shirts in second hand stores, these stores often have a charitable background, fundraising for a good-cause (red cross, breast cancer society, orphanages, homeless people...) Not only we do not contribute to creating more than there is, we are taking unwanted tees and giving them a new purpose! We screen print tees with designs which picture issues arising from pollution. T-shirts are printed in New Zealand, using an eco-friendly water based ink. All the profit from selling our Fork Plastic tees are going to organisations/projects involved with fighting plastic pollution.
