"For humanity to thrive, we must Beat Plastic Pollution"

Plastic Pollution remains a major challenge around the globe and we all are contributing to the creation of a Plastic Planet. There are already calls that if we don’t halt plastic pollution, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.
This week, we want you to add your voice to the voices of millions of people calling for an end to plastic pollution.

We want you to #StopPlasticPollution.

The future of our future depends on our plastic footprint today and if we don't challenge plastic pollution, then we risk having a plastic future.

The 5 Rs to #StopPlasticPollution

Chose of one or two or all of the 5 Rs and do something to stop plastic pollution

1. REFUSE

Simply say NO to single-use and disposable plastics, such as bags, bottles, straws, cups, spoons and plates! Discover alternatives. This is the most effective of 5R's and will allow you to discover that life without disposable plastics is not only entirely feasible, but also healthier and wealthier.

2. REDUCE

If you don’t need it, don’t take it!
Reduce your plastic footprint entirely by avoiding plastic in the first place or by buying in bulk, choosing products with the least packaging and amount of disposable parts, looking for products and packaging made from renewable resources, and avoiding plastic packaging and containers.

3. REUSE

Reuse preferably nontoxic, such as glass or stainless steel, containers and goods to make less waste. If you have plastic bags or containers, reuse them as well to prolong their life before recycling them.

4. REMOVE

A lot of plastics are already in the environment, causing a lot land and marine pollution. It’s high time we remove it via clean up campaigns, to recycle it!

5. RECYCLE

Recycle what you can’t refuse, reduce, reuse or remove from the Earth. Recycling plastic has many benefits, but is a last option because it uses energy.

Thanks for chosing to take action to end plastic pollution.
