Plastics

22/07/2020

Plastics have become an essential part of our everyday life. We can find it in product packaging, clothing, cosmetics, construction materials...

Plastic has become so important, that its production rates have increased dramatically in the last years. So much that only in the last decade we have produced more plastic than in the whole of the last century !

In fact it's predicted that by 2019 plastic production rates will reach 500 million tonnes per year, that is 900% more than in the 1980s.

Litter and pollution are a major problem for the environment. It's estimated that over 1 million marine animals worldwide are killed each year due to plastic debris. Not only is this litter threatening for wildlife, but it's also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industry.

Beach cleans are a simple and effective way of reducing the amount of litter on our beach and oceans. Organise beach cleans regularly throughout the year to help create a safer environment for wildlife, our families, friends and ourselves.

Believers in the power of education to enact change. The better informed people are about the issues facing our ocean the more inspired they will feel to protect it.

For this reason, is important help raise awareness and inspire action against plastic pollution. Whether it's a beach clean, arts and craft session or just a fun presentation at assembly we are able to tailor our program to fit each school's curriculum.

We understand that trying to reduce our use of plastics is not as easy as it sounds. We have come to rely very heavily on plastics and we often struggle to live without it due to lack of alternatives.

Everyone be able to easily purchase alternative products to single use plastic ones in the market. Any profits made will be used to help fund our efforts to reduce the impacts of plastic pollution.

Work alongside local businesses to help them reduce their plastic footprint.

Supply businesses with a wide variety of alternatives to single-use plastics and provide free advertisement for those who are already making an effort to reduce their plastic consumption.

Already a large number of businesses have joined our quest for reducing plastic pollution, be the next one!
