Consultancy Services

We work with businesses of all sizes, from a wide selection of industries, to enable them to reduce plastic waste and make a difference to plastic pollution.

There is a strong business case for minimising your plastic footprint, and we have found that a company's plastic reduction project can fulfil a variety of departments' objectives, including Human Resources, Sales & Marketing, Environment Health & Safety, Facilities, and Corporate Social Responsibility.

We use the five-step framework we developed for our book, Plastic Game Changer, to support you with defining, measuring and achieving your plastic reduction goals, wherever you are on your journey. Scroll down for further detail of our 'Plastic Game Changer 5 Ps'.

We've also worked with several clients as an advisor to their existing journey, dialling into their project calls to offer an external perspective or guiding hand at different stages of the project.

Less Plastic is also pleased to work alongside other sustainability consultants as part of their team, to offer plastic reduction expertise.

We're happy to work onsite with clients but can also deliver our services remotely using various technologies.

Open your eyes to the plastic problem and envisage your company as part of the solution

Amanda Keetley, our founder, will deliver a talk or workshop to engage your employees, supported by our materials (infographics, books, pledge templates) to create awareness of the plastic problem and a sense of responsibility within the business to be part of the solution. She will work with your leadership team to identify Less Plastic Champions within your business, potential resources required, and agree a vision of your plastic reduction objectives.

Example: We recently worked with one of Europe's largest manufacturing companies to run a workshop that formed part of a two-day EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) event. This helped energise the team and kick-start their plastic reduction journey across multiple business units. Amanda also regularly delivers employee engagement talks for all sizes of companies and has featured on several expert panels.


Plot your current plastic usage and identify what needs to change

Less Plastic will work with your team to conduct an audit of plastic usage across your business or business unit, using  the Plastic Game Changer approach and templates to identify the cost, quantity, and weight of single-use plastics used to create benchmarks and identify before and after impact of activity and planned course of action, quick wins etc.

Example: We recently ran plastic audits for several small to medium size businesses in Exeter funded by the Business Improvement District and BinIt as part of a drive to reduce waste in the city. Less Plastic provided valuable insights, quick wins, and recommendations for more sustainable alternatives.


Assist you in setting meaningful targets and making a public commitment to deliver them

Based on our understanding of your industry and experiences with other businesses, we can help you agree to bold but realistic targets, and using our tools and templates to share these pledges both inside and outside your organisation.

Example: Less Plastic will be launching a #LessPlasticPledge campaign in January 2020 – which can be used by individuals, teams and at company-level to make public your commitment to reduce plastic, to help keep you focussed and accountable.


Work with you to research the alternatives, create an action plan, and implement it

Less Plastic runs creative ideas workshops to generate action plans and plastic reduction initiatives. We can support in coming up with the ideas and implementation; whether through internal plastic reduction activities, identifying alternative products or packaging, supplier collaboration, or supply chain transformation.

Example: We recently worked with a company in the drinks industry to help them produce a co-branded transition guide converting their business to single-use plastic free. The transition guide is an accessible toolkit for all individuals across their business to refer to using Less Plastic's highly visual infographics.


Helping you promote your successes & share best practice to inspire others to act too

Less Plastic can co-create communications to share your successes that can be used internally for employee engagement, and/or externally to attract customers, and to show leadership by sharing best practice to inspire others in your industry. We will share your story as a case study and promote your plastic reduction successes via our blog, email and extensive social media following - for maximum positive impact.

Example: We recently produced a co-branded infographic with a leading sustainable online fashion retailer to share the methods they had used to reduce plastic from their packaging and supply chain.


Whilst we have found the 5Ps a successful way to approach plastic reduction within organisations we are happy to discuss where you are in this journey and create a bespoke response to your specific requirements.
