Since the Plastiki project began back in 2006 with the hugely ambitious plan of building a boat from thousands of plastic bottles, we have been actively trying to not only raise awareness of the issue of plastic pollution, but to also encourage people to rethink their relationship with single use plastics.

So earlier this year the Plastiki and our technology partner HP launched the Plastiki Pledge, a Facebook application that allows users to pledge to stop using plastic bottles and to ask your friends to do the same. This application worked alongside our My Plastiki campaign to bring together the thousands of people all over the world who are making a stand against plastic pollution.

After over 12 months of the Plastiki Pledge running on Facebook we are extremely excited to announce that Jackie Niehaus from Germany was our top pledger! Thanks so much to everyone who has been involved and a big congratulations from the Plastiki and HP teams to Jackie who will soon be receiving the winning prize of an HP laptop!
