Postcard Campaign

With enormous gratitude to the artist Martyn Turner,  Sick of Plastic are very excited to launch their Postcard campaign calling on Supermarkets to PLEASE make it easier for us to reduce our levels of plastic waste from our shopping. 

The Postcards are being launched as part of our Plastic Free July 2020 actions; a Break Free From Plastic initiative which Sick of Plastic is proud to be part of.  

Postcards are available through a number of hubs throughout the country or you can provide a digital sign up here

Would you like to get involved and act as a hub for the Sick of Plastic Postcards?

How does it work?

  1. Send an email to telling us your address and how many postcards you think you can distribute.
  2. Ask any local premises – shops, cafes, library etc. if they might be happy to display postcards and provide a collection box for signed postcards in their premises. You can use the attached poster to put on the front of the collection boxes.
  3. Email the locations of the postcards and we will add this to our Postcard hub map so people can find these outlets (great advertising for the cafes & shops!!). Tag us on social with pictures of the postcards on display.
  4. Don’t worry - if you are not able to get local outlets on board just distribute them to your friends and neighbours. They can either return them to you or pop them in the post and they will be returned by Freepost.
  5. At the end of the month collect the postcards from the collection boxes and return to Sick of Plastic in bulk (we will cover the cost of postage). 
  6. Once we have received postcards from all around the country they will be collated and delivered to the Head Quarters of the 5 Supermarkets to tell them that we are Sick of Plastic and need their help.
