1 Week No Single-Use Plastic Challenge
Can you go an entire week without single-use plastics while in lockdown? We know it's harder than ever to avoid single-use products right now: packaged food, supermarket delivery bags, sanitiser bottles and more - but with our new #1weekplasticfree challenge we hope to reignite your passion for zero waste!
We're looking for inspiring Instagram content showcasing your zero waste lifestyle to help encourage as many people as possible to reduce their consumption of single-use plastics throughout lockdown and beyond. Every week the best content posted will win a WAKEbag.

If you want to pick up some reusable goodies to help you on your journey, we are supporting our amazing NHS throughout this time by donating a personalised WAKEcup bamboo bottle and infuser to doctors, nurses and support staff throughout the UK with every single order. That's in addition to the 10% of our profits we donate to the Marine Conservation Society - so you can be sure that your purchase is doing good.
We are aiming to inspire 1 million people around the world to take part in the challenge over the course of 2020. As well as having a direct impact on single-use consumption, we hope our fun challenge will make people mindful of the small changes we can all make to our weekly routine to help reduce our single-use plastic footprint once the lockdown has been lifted.
Our challenge kicks off on Monday April 20th 2020 but you take the challenge on any week that works for you this year. Sign up below and you'll also receive an exclusive discount code for everything in store.
Our Charity Partners.
WAKEcup and our charity partners The Marine Conservation Society are asking everyone who takes part to donate as much or little as you can, even the cost of your monthly/weekly/ daily takeaway coffee will be put to good use by MCS helping clean our shared seas and beaches Donate Here.
Whilst we are in lockdown Global WAKEcup will donate a WAKEcup or WAKEbag to an NHS worker for every customer order. This is in addition to the 10% of profits which go to ocean conservation last year we raised more than £5000 for The Marine Conservation Society - the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. For over thirty years MCS has been the voice for the sea for all the fascinating creatures that live beneath the waves and for everyone who simply enjoys visiting the beach.
We can't wait to see you post the beautiful artwork and see the stories, pictures and videos from your challenge day on your blogs and social media pages.
