Take the pledge here

The Earth Cannot Sustain our Waste.

There are 7.5 Billion people on the planet. By 2025 population will be about 8 billion and we could hit 9 billion by 2045.

We already require 1.5 planets to handle our consumption and waste. By the 2030’s we will need two planets to sustain us.

5 trillion plastic bags will be used up this year.

That makes it to 160,000 per second! Create a chain of them, and it would surround the world seven times each hour and encompass twice the area than the size of France!

Most bags are put merely into the trash

Recycling is only less than one percent. Polyethylene is the main constituent to create these which takes ages to decompose. Each ton of the recycled plastic bags that we recycle saves the energy equal to that of 11 oil drums!

What is the fate of these plastic bags?

Per year in total, we consume 100 million tons of plastic. Around 10% of this plastic finishes up in the oceans – and certainly brings in consequences.

Plastic Hodgepodge/Potpourri

In the ocean, plastic disintegrates to tiny pieces. These pieces get consumed by fish, and they are unable to digest it. As a result, the plastic kingdom expands and makes its way into the food chain.
Plastic thus becomes part of our food chain, humans, seabirds, turtles, seals, sea lions, whales and fish are affected.

THINK BIG, ACT BIG

It’s time to join the 5 R’s Revolution

RETHINK

for the other purpose of everything and also the ways to educate and inform people about not using plastic.

REUSE

the materials that can be used for a second time . We can also reuse refillable water bottles that can be used over and over.

RECYCLE

the materials that can be used over and over again. We should recycle paper, glass, aluminium, plastics and buy items made from recycled materials.

RECOVER

using plastic because it’s not easy to dissolve. We can also reduce plastic consumption by living simply and promoting the use of reusable containers and cloth grocery bags.

REFUSE

to buy any plastic items that are really not needed. A plastic thing refused today would give you more better thing for tomorrow.

Single use plastic has the potential of directly harming you.

Ocean debris worldwide kills at least 2 million sea birds and 100,000 mammals each year.

To really make a difference we must tackle plastic at every stage of its lifecycle – not just when it reaches the ocean but starting with its production.

We have to understand that the problem of marine plastic pollution is now critical and we have to do something before it is too late.

It’s high time to take care of OUR BLUE PLANET before it gets converted to A PLASTIC PLANET.

It’s high time to RETHINK PLASTIC.
