Plastic pollution is something we see every day in our backyards (literally), on the streets, or in our bodies of water. This young man from Uganda recognized that plastic could be used for good and provide housing for the poor - I was privileged to hear him speak at #OYW2018 and wanted to share his story with you, too. #BeatPlasticPollution #UnplasticThePlanet
We’ve produced >9bn tons of plastic, ever. That’s the equivalent of 80 million blue whales. Why is it so difficult to find beverages not packaged in plastic?
I'm all for the movement to eliminate single-use plastics in the world, but we need to consider all populations and listen to all voices, including those from the disabled community, when making these decisions.
#WorldEnvironmentDay is a day for awareness for the protection of our environment and a day for ACTION. What steps are you taking to #BeatPlasticPollution?
