Spread the word! #BeatPlasticPollution, #WorldEnvironmentDay2018, is a call to action for all of us to come together to combat single-use plastic pollution, which is one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time.
There are so many ways that we can help to combat plastic pollution around the world. Remember, even little changes in your routine can reduce the amount of plastic waste. For example: at the restaurant, you can ask the staff not to give you plastic straws or cutlery, or you can bring your own coffee mug to work. Here are some more ideas on how to eliminate plastic pollution:
- Always recycle and throw all your garbage into the designated bins
- Bring your own shopping bags to the supermarket
- Refuse plastic cutlery
- Pick up any plastic you see the next time you go for a walk on the beach or in your neighbourhood
- Drink your beverages from your own re-fillable bottle/cup
