I’m in. I have put my dot on the map. Let’s all do that and be part of the solution to plastic free oceans.
try to find businesses that support Plastic Free Oceans. Sooooo, if you want my business – get on board.
when travelling prefer hotels listed on Plastic Free Oceans – I encourage them to list.
take all reasonable steps to recycle plastic waste.
aim to purchase products and food with the least possible plastic packaging.
do not buy water in plastic bottle - the exception is a couple of remote areas overseas with warning the water is contaminated - then I will try and refill with boiled water.
ask for non-plastic drinking straws or say none at all.
avoid single-use plastic bags where ever possible.
take my reusable cup to the cafe. But most often take the time to sit and enjoy it from a cup.
grow veges, have some chooks and compost our kitchen scraps.
have LEDs for most of our lighting.
often add general posts, like I would to Facebook, to my PFO page then click the share buttons to Facebook and/or Twitter so others see my PFO post and I hope they will also become part the solution to the plastics crisis.
Would love to know why the US wasn't a part of this! Otherwise it's some very good news! https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/plastic-waste-pollution-un-agreement-us-basel-convention-a8909186.html
Super interesting history of plastic pollution monitoring (by accident!). Some of the best scientific discoveries come from unexpected sources. https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/first-plastic-bag-ocean
According to the WWF, over 53 kilograms of plastic are produced for every person on the planet every year. Think about that...for some of you, that may be more than you weigh! We need to turn the tide on our collective appetite for plastic. Learn more about how you can make a difference by visiting our website www.plasticfreeoceans.org #reducereuserecycle
Paste a link to the image or video (from Facebook, You Tube or elsewhere) - it will display in the feed. Easy. As a charity, the resources to fund the huge storage needed to stream videos are out of our reach - let's hope a major donor comes along and funds that for us!
