This year, the Earth Day Network has made its mission clear: A World Without Plastic Pollution. The strategy adds a few more “Rs” to the old Reduce, Reuse, Recycle campaign. Ending plastic pollution will require us to Reduce, Refuse, Reuse, Recycle and Remove.
According to a study done by Plymouth University, one third of the fish caught in the UK had plastic inside their bodies. Additionally, there is so much plastic breaking down on the earth, that microplastics – tiny pieces of plastic that mostly cannot be seen by the naked eye – are everywhere. These plastics are damaging to the health of our planet and have been recognized as a hazard to public health. Learn more and get involved at earthday.org
