No Plastic in Nature – A Revolution Within Our Grasp
Plastic is brilliant – and everywhere. Our modern life depends on it. And its low-cost and material advantages make it indispensable in everything from household goods, medical equipment and bank notes, to packaging, motor vehicles, buildings and fishing nets.
Yet as useful as it is, our ever-increasing reliance on single-use plastics, a global throwaway culture and poor waste management, have created a ubiquitous problem. Plastic pollution is choking our planet – imperilling marine life, contaminating the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink, and suffocating our rivers and oceans.
