Many individuals, groups and organisations are coming together to mark the day, organize and attend events of various kinds. There are also a series of photos and infographics explaining the extent and consequences of plastic pollution, as well as suggestions on how each one can play a role in reducing and ultimately ending plastic pollution.

Plastic is all around us.
Plastic is all around us.

Everyone can play a role. All hands must be on deck to ensure that we #BeatPlasticPollution on our land and seas. We can make the earth healthy, clean and beautiful again by refusing single use plastics. If you can’t reuse it, simply refuse it!

 

The earth is our home – our only home. It has loved us so kindly, gently and generously. It feeds us, nurtures us and nourishes us daily.

It is our responsibility to love, care and nurture the earth.

Is that too much to ask?

So true...
