The Valuing Plastic Project

Research in partnership

The Valuing Plastic Project is a research partnership between the University of Cambridge and the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, also known as The Green Anglicans.

This network supports churches in their role as advocates for the care and protection of the environment, underpinned by the Christian principle of caring for God’s Creation. The Anglican Church has passed a resolution on plastic at their last Synod calling on all parishes and dioceses to become ‘zero waste.’ Read more here or follow @Greenanglicans on social media.

The Cambridge Creative Circular Plastics Centre (CirPlas) is a UKRI funded network of researchers at the University of Cambridge. Their work is divided into different areas, based at Energy Transitions Cambridge, one of which focuses on the social life of plastic. More information about other regional social science work on plastic is available here. This is one of eight centres established by the Plastics Research and Innovation Fund listed below:
