Connecting for a cause

The #OneLess pioneer network is a community of more than 90 organisations that are all taking action to reduce and ultimately eliminate single-use plastic water bottles, by switching to ‘refill and reuse’ options for the sake of the ocean.

 The organisations within the network are diverse, all with their own unique challenges and opportunities. By sharing their insights and experiences, they are able to learn from each other, access new solutions and unlock challenges.

Our members include corporates, councils and local authorities, academic institutions and schools, emerging innovators, landmark London events and venues, small and medium-sized enterprises, community groups, and grass-roots campaigns – along with many others.

Connect with other organisations and learn about their successes, challenges and opportunities.

Be a part of a collaborative movementwhere every organisation is working towards the same goal.

Have the pioneering work you are doing showcased, and inspire others to take action.
