Did you know that every day, approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans? And each year, over 1 million marine animals are killed due to this plastic debris in their habitat? Plastic is unsustainable and is slowly destroying our planet. But it’s not too late; you can still take action.
I became aware of the devastating impacts of plastic pollution having watched both Blue Planet 2 and A Plastic Ocean back in 2017 and it shocked me into taking action, so I decided to start eliminating plastic from my families everyday life. It all started with a reusable metal water bottle and my plastic-free swaps snowballed from there. By making small everyday changes, I managed to drastically cut back on my families plastic consumption and decided to try to help others with this change too.
