SAY NO TO OCEAN PLASTICS
A truckload of plastic waste enters the ocean every minute…
Up to 12 million tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean every year and will take centuries to degrade. An area of plastic rubbish three times the size of the UK has been floating in the north Pacific for decades – and every year thousands of turtles and other ocean creatures are harmed and killed by eating and getting entangled in plastic debris. Greenpeace is campaigning hard over the next few years, to stop the flow of plastic pollution into our oceans.
Here are 4 ways you can take action:
#1: Say no to single-use plastic bottles
#2: Show your support for Deposit Return Schemes
#3: Tell your friends
Or, why not join the WWF?
It’s time to make a choice.
Nature is vital. It provides our life-support system, and we cannot survive without it. But our world is now under threat like never before. Globally we are all using the planet’s resources faster than nature can restore itself. So we must all act right now to reverse the damage and restore nature. We have the solutions, we just need the will.
We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world. And we’re the last that can do anything about it.
It’s time to decide. Are you for your world?
