Non Plastique was a punk zine from Dublin, Ireland.

Non Plastique was put together by Willie from 1995 to 2002. Nine issues were released. It contained zine reviews, articles from Willie's life, skate stories and gig stories. The last issue documented Willie’s time when he went to live in New Orleans in the US for 2 years. Willie has often been active in zines; as well as Non Plastique he ran a zine distro in Dublin called Ultra Red Star zine distro, and then ran a zine and records distro called Holy Virility. In America, he toured once with several other zine writers performing readings from their zines on a tour called the "Y'herd Me Zine Tour". When he came back to Ireland, Willie with his wife set up a zine and alternative literature bookshop in Dublin called "Red Ink Radical Books and Zines." This lasted around two years but due to rising costs of rent in Dublin, Red Ink closed down. Willie now runs a zine and music distro called Stitchy Press with his wife which is planning on publishing books and has already released a CD by the "Ghastly Grimey Orchestra of New Orleans" and 7” record by "Party Weirdo".
