End Plastic Pollution 2018

Earth Day Network, in response to the exponential growth of plastics now threatening the survival of our planet, have launched their End Plastic Pollution campaign Earth Day 2018. Their hopes are to grow excitement for the project by the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020.

According to their site, the strategy to End Plastic Pollution will:

  • Lead and support the adoption of a global framework to regulate plastic pollution
  • Educate and mobilize citizens across the globe to demand action from governments and corporations to control and diminish plastic pollution
  • Inform and activate citizens to take personal responsibility for the plastic pollution that each one of us generates by choosing to reject, reduce, reuse and recycle plastics
  • Work with universities, school teachers and students to End Plastic Pollution
  • Work with other organizations and networks and make Earth Day 2018 a platform to End Plastic Pollution by developing resources that others can use and build partnerships.
  • Promote the work that cities and local governments are doing to tackle plastic pollution
  • Empower journalists across the globe to report on the problem and its emerging solutions.

If you have any ideas or would like to propose a partnership with Earth Day Network for this campaign, you can send them to plastic@earthday.org

We here at 4Ocean fully support these efforts as we are out seven days week cleaning trash from the sea and coastlines. For the month of April. We have partnered with Earth Day Network to support The Canopy Project, another campaign launched in an effort to plant 7.8 billion trees by 2020!

Support the cleaning of coastlines as well the planting of trees this month by purchasing the Limited Edition Earth Day Bracelet!

Is there a promising bio-degradable alternative to today’s plastic that we could get behind? Plastic in its current form should be banned except where specified for scientific equipment or precision components that no other material can fulfill. On Instagram someone posted a pic of biodegradable plastic baggies…. I’d like to learn more about them.
