MUCH WENLOCK HAS BEEN AWARDED PLASTIC FREE COMMUNITIES STATUS BY SURFERS AGAINST SEWAGE
PLASTIC POLLUTION, WHAT IS IT?
Laura Parker from National Geographic says……
Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world’s ability to deal with them. Plastic pollution is the most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where garbage collection systems are often inefficient or nonexistent. But the developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has trouble properly collecting discarded plastics. Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it has prompted efforts to write global treaty negotiated by the United Nations.
WHAT IS A PLASTIC FREE COMMUNITY?
To ensure a cleaner Earth for future generations we need to start tackling single-use plastic pollution at source.
We can all take-action in our own lives to reduce single-use plastic and join this nationwide movement.
Surfers against Sewage are creating the Plastic Free Community network to free where we live from single-use plastic.
You are a vital part of the movement…
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
There are many ways you can help,
As an individual, as a business, as a school……
Let the Dirty Dozen know they need to change their plastic polluting ways!
From our sandy beaches to our city streets, we’re sick and tired of picking up plastic pollution. The ocean is drowning in plastic and our systems simply can’t cope. It’s time for the big businesses responsible for flooding the world with plastic to take responsibility and reduce their plastic packaging.
This year’s Dirty Dozen are responsible for a staggering 70% of all the branded pollution we found – over 10,000 polluting items.
These big companies have the power to massively reduce the plastic that ends up filling our coastlines and polluting our rivers. Yet they keep churning out virgin plastics and take little responsibility for putting them back into a circular system.
We need your help to make them listen and act.
Add your voice and send a letter to the Dirty Dozen asking them to act now against plastic pollution.
