Let's SAVE the WORLD together
Modern civilization has taken the wrong path by creating unsustainable habits. Creating, using and discarding unsustainable materials. Destroying natural habitats, ignoring the impact, of all these and more, on future generations of humans and animals.
The future - of life as we know it - on this planet, who has been our home for millions of years, does not look good at all...
Changing our every day habits, what we use and the way we use it,is not something that should be enforced. It should be a desire of each and everyone of us.
The need to act for the sake of our planet is more obvious now than ever.
We must understand that using plastic is just a bad habit and it's up to us to learn how to eliminate plastics from our daily routine.
In return, we get clean coast lines and clear waters, we get a healthier life, as micro plastics are everywhere even in our food, and we also help our marine and wild life to live a better and safer life.
Global warming isn’t a prediction, it is happening.
We need to change our habits and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. For our children’s future and for us, for wildlife and marine life!
Nobody on this planet is going to be left untouched by the impacts of climate change.
It is our world and our responsibility too! We only have one home...
While plastic thrown into landfills contaminates the soil and groundwater with harmful chemicals and microorganisms, the effects of marine pollution caused by plastic are immeasurable... 😔
Did you know that:
- 500 MILLION plastic straws are used EVERY DAY only in America.
- Up to 12.7 million tons of plastic enters the oceans EVERY YEAR. About 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950’s.
- There are five trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans. Only about 9% of all the plastic ever created has been recycled, 12% has been burned and the remaining 79% has ended up in landfills or the environment.
- Plastic in the ocean breaks down into such small segments that pieces of plastic from a one liter bottle could end up on every mile of beach throughout the world.
- Up to 9 of 10 seabirds, 1 in 3 sea turtles and more than half of whale and dolphin species have ingested plastic.
- It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade.
- Low-income communities face more health hazards near plastic production sites, have greater exposure to toxins and waste; and bear the brunt of improper plastic disposal and incineration.
