Your support of VOICE Ireland will make a world of difference. For nearly twenty five years we have been campaigning for proactive actions to reduce food waste and single use plastics and advocate for sustainable consumption.
We work with government, business, experts and change makers. We believe in building bridges not throwing bombs. We VOICE your concern to the Irish government to legislate and make working policies that protect our environment and solve our waste issues.
