Combat Plastic Pollution
Our core objective is to reduce the level of plastic pollution in the world. Plastic containers, plastic bottles and plastic packaging has become common place in our supermarkets and in our homes. But over 60% of the plastic that is manufactured is single use, and is thrown away within minutes or hours of our use.
Worryingly, over 50% of the plastic ever manufactured, has been made within the last 15 years, and the world’s consumption of plastic is ever increasing.
Every year, 8 million tons of plastic waste escape into the oceans, and more than 5 million animals are killed by plastic annually. From elephants who have eaten plastics by mistake and suffered ruptured digestive organs; to turtles who have been suffocated by plastic bags seeped into the sea.
It has been calculated by experts in the field and scientists, that plastics will take 400 years to breakdown and decompose in the environment. And it is estimated that by 2050, if things don’t change; there will be more than 720,000,000 tons of plastic in our seas, on our shores; and a further 3,240,000,000 tons of plastic in our landfill without the opportunity to recycle.
A change needs to be made, and it needs to be made fast. Using glass sauce bottles rather than plastic single-use sauce bottles, isn’t going to be enough. But it is a start.
