Break The Plastic Wave: in July, say Goobye to plastic
For several years now, Surfrider Europe has been fighting against plastic pollution at all levels. #PlasticFreeJuly, the month without plastic is the perfect occasion for the association to invite citizens, businesses and public institutions to join the battle. A dedicated campaign has been launched recently; Break The Plastic Wave, it all starts here!
Together, let’s ride the plastic free wave
Getting rid of plastic is a family business (or at least, a community one). This fight must be a joint action, considered at every level of our society, in order to positively impact our oceans and all marine life. Everybody can, in their own way, contribute to plastic reduction and even its removal in the long run (by the way, the #Just1Thing campaign is still on!).
Public institutions? It is well overdue to take useful decisions against plastic within European territories and set-up initiatives to fight against over-consumption of this harmful material. Businesses? It is time to move on, innovate and even surprise consumers by favoring zero waste, and by thinking “reusable” and “recyclable”. Citizens? You also have a role to play and non the least. Why not take advantage of #PlasticFreeJuly to rethink your consumption, get yourself heard or take part in a clean up on your favorite beach?
Thus, each and every one of us can, in their own way, take part in this huge revolution. But also, only together will we be able to defeat the plastic curse and save our oceans.
For oceans, a 2-level curse
For it to be all over soon, plastic consumption and above all, its production needs to be stopped! Indeed, real change will come from fighting the problem at its root. In July starts a new revolution: are you ready to break the plastic wave?
