Delphine Lévi Alvarès

European Coordinator


Delphine Lévi Alvarès is the European coordinator of the Break Free From Plastic movement. She has been a driving force behind the development of the movement’s holistic strategy, linking to the broader global movement. She has played a central role in the foundation of the movement since its inception in 2016, uniting more than 80 European organisations under a common vision.

Since 2017, Delphine is also the coordinator of the Rethink Plastic alliance, the Brussels based, policy coalition working on plastic pollution issues across the European Union, and which played a crucial role securing ambitious legislation on single-use plastics at the European level.

Delphine is based out of Zero Waste Europe which leads the way in connecting the growing zero waste movement to the work of Break Free From Plastic. Prior to her role with the Break Free From Plastic movement she held a number of senior policy roles advocating for zero waste strategies at the national and European level. Additionally she lectured in advocacy at the University of Marne-la-Vallée and in 2014 Delphine co-authored the book ‘The Zero Waste Scenario’.
