Handling BIG money? UK Funding bid
- This topic has 1 reply, 2 voices, and was last updated 3 years ago by .
Perhaps directed towards ‘realpreciousplastic’ considering the 300k EUR from FAMAE, there is currently the opportunity to get £150-300,000 of funding towards plastic waste initiatives here: https://planplasticfund.com/
This is far too big for a small individual workspace to handle but the potential of a UK wide approach would be feasible.
Any hints and tips on the application itself + actually handling that kind of money if received?
We might start with a chocolate bar for each UK workspace, and one for you too Dave 😉
‘We would like to fund projects which will have a significant measurable impact on plastic pollution (now or in the future)’
with less than a half million $$ ? it looks pretty impossible to me, precious plastic vise I mean. As stated in many places, the only real option to explore is to ban plastic all together and for that you have to convince consumer and producers. I think there are ongoing talks and new regulations with the food industry and who ever needs one-time-use plastic for transportation and packaging. 150.000 is just enough to do a anti-plastic campaign for a few dozen of towns, you need easily the double to convince and support a few produce producers to switch to something else 🙂
