VUW Plastic Diet Incorporated (Plastic Diet at Vic)

Plastic Diet is a youth-lead organisation dedicated to reducing single-use plastic waste and consumption.

Our values guiding our work:

  • We are a solutions-focussed community and movement, promoting possible solutions rather than solely focussing on the problems of plastic.
  • We are not a ‘cleanup’ or ‘correct disposal’ organisation; instead we aim to work at the top of the waste hierarchy and address the issue at its source and supply.
  • We work to promote awareness about plastic because we believe that a greater understanding is a necessary precursor to systemic change.

We also run a weekly stall in the hub called Waste Watchers. We provide mugs for students to use, then wash the dishes at our Waste Watchers stall.The point of the initiative is to get students (and staff!) thinking about the single-use plastics on campus. If you’d like to be apart of our Waste Watchers volunteer team, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Volunteering your time here can also be included towards the Wellington Plus Programme.
