The woman behind the Do it for David campaign has launched a new website selling plastic-free products.

Mandy Price has launched Plastic Free UK, a website that offers the best in plastic-free products in a bid to combat the amount of plastic waste found in the sea.

Former Oswestry School teacher Mandy took early retirement this year to focus on the Do it for David campaign and the new plastic-free website.

The Do it for David campaign started after Mandy and her daughter Becky discovered plastic pollution on a north Wales beach on Christmas day. This prompted the pair to start the campaign which went global.

"By taking early retirement I've been able to go into schools and give assemblies to children about the campaign," said Mandy.

"Plastic Free UK is also something I wanted to launch – it's not always easy to get hold of plastic-free products but this website makes it accessible and we're also aiming to get many of our products palm oil free too.

"All of our packaging is recyclable and biodegradable, including the tape.

"I understand that plastic-free products can be more expensive so we're trying to be cheaper with our prices.

"You can actually save money by buying plastic-free products – products like reusable nappies can save people hundreds of pounds."

The website launched just two weeks ago, but has already seen a great response.

"We started with a flurry of orders and then since then it's been a steady flow," said Mandy.

The website offers a range of products from kitchen to bathroom, to items tailored for men, women and pets.

Plastic Free UK also has a Facebook and Instagram pages, showing the latest offerings on the website.

"After Christmas we're hoping to start setting up stalls at Oswestry markets to get the word out there a bit more," she added.

"It would be great to raise awareness, but by visiting schools we're hoping that will make an impact.

"The children are very enthusiastic and often come up with ideas of how to be more plastic-free.

"We need the young generation to be inspired by this, as they're very important for the future of the planet."

From every product bought on the website, 20p is being donated to the Big Blue Ocean Clean Up, which Mandy says is their way of giving back.

And as a thank you to the Advertizer and its readers, there is also a special 20 per cent discount off purchases when the code 'ADVERTIZER' is used online.
