One month after Eugenie and Jack's royal wedding, the Princess is headed back to work.

Now that she has returned from her honeymoon, Eugenie is shifting her attention to a new anti-plastic initiative. The young royal has joined celebrities Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Cara Delevingne to design a range of reusable products for the Sky Oceans Rescue and Project 0's #PassOnPlastic collection.

The Princess took part by illustrating a limited-edition bag, which is available for purchase both online and at Sky Ocean Rescue's pop up shop in London's Soho neighborhood (unfortunately they only ship within the UK and Ireland).

The tote will feature a drawing of the earth with the phrases, "built for life," "make an impact," "healthy ecosystems," and "inspire change" written across it as well as Eugenie's signature and the #PassOnPlastic tagline.

Speaking to Hello magazine the Princess explained that she drew inspiration from the importance of the ocean and how humans to tend to neglect its health. "Sadly we have a tendency to take the ocean for granted, assuming that it is an endless vessel for us to take from and give nothing in return," she said. "It is, however, time to give back. Everyone can easily do this with just a few small changes to everyday routines. I hope these products help people form new habits with ease and a bit of style."

Eugenie has been a part of the anti-plastic movement for some time now, in August she told British Vogue, that she not only keeps a plastic-free household but she made sure her October nuptials were free of plastic as well.

But she's hardly the first royal to champion the environment. Most recently Prince Charles spoke about his concerns for the planet's future, while on an official visit to Ghana.

"I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon," the Prince of Wales said, according to theTelegraph. "It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them."

"All grandchildren deserve a better future," he said.
