Plastic pollution is the ocean's new cancer. We need to ban unnecessary plastics and tax other single use plastics, finally making them valuable materials we want to recover and helping to pay for the full cost of their environmental impacts. We need research and tech to prevent plastics from leaking into the sea, to overhaul our recycling systems, and to design economically viable alternatives to plastics. This progress may be accelerated by a proposed international 'Paris Agreement' for plastic pollution.
While governments and researchers find and establish solutions to eliminate plastic pollution, the good news is that we can all help clean up the planet.
Adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle, use renewables, reuse, reduce, recycle.
Say NO to plastics, Say YES to Life, Earth Thanks! 🌿
