In 2012, six volunteers created a unique challenge to reduce the plastic soup and bring it to the attention of a broad public. In 2014, the inspiring challenge resulted in a movement in which 10,000 people, in 16 countries, promising not to buy new plastic for 1 week. This not only saved a lot of plastic, but also discovered new alternatives, shared tips and broadened awareness about the plastic soup.
