At MCS, we’re committed to #STOPthePlasticTide and we’re working tirelessly towards a future of safe and healthy seas where less and less plastic is getting into our oceans and washing up on our beaches. We’re always on the lookout for other organisations, companies and individuals that are committed to the same goal as us, and so we’re pleased to announce a new partnership with PomPom.

PomPom is an online boutique with a curated edit of imaginative, beautiful and well-designed plastic-free products for children. They do the research to find long-lasting plastic-free toys which will be cherished year after year by their customers. Each product available to purchase through PomPom is beautiful, functional and most importantly of all, free from plastic from purchase to delivery.

“Furthering our commitment to being plastic-free, PomPom is proud to support the Marine Conservation Society in protecting the UK’s seas, shores and wildlife. We have pledged 20% of the proceeds from selected products to support this important work.” Katherine Rhodes, Director and Co-Founder, PomPom

Change, they say, starts at home and this year PomPom and MCS are encouraging you to have a #plasticfreechristmas. Follow PomPom online for tips on how to avoid plastic, exciting experiences to give and share, and unusual plastic free gifts for kids.


“We are delighted to be working with PomPom. It is refreshing to see a business operate entirely plastic free whilst providing their customers with high quality, beautiful products. Something we at MCS welcome and would love to see more of! They are a great example of how businesses can prioritise sustainability and the environment, without compromising on the quality and value of their products.” Katharine Sharp, Corporate Partnerships Manager, MCS.

Devastatingly, ocean plastic is killing over 100,000 marine animals annually and it is up to us to stop that plastic tide. Without action, by 2050 there could be more plastic in the sea than fish. From kind contributions, such as those from PomPom, we are able to continue our work operating beach cleans across the UK coastline, gathering important data which has been instrumental in UK-wide initiatives to reduce the scourge of plastic on our coastline and in our ocean.

PomPom is committing to be part of the solution, providing beautiful, plastic-free products and donating a portion of its proceeds towards our work stopping the plastic tide.
