Reset your habits
At least 80 000 plastic bottles are collected every year by Surfrider during the Ocean Initiatives. They take between 100 to 1000 years to degrade in the environment. The pollution which arises from these bottles is a major, lasting nuisance for ecosystems, fauna and flora.
Convinced that eco-responsible behaviour depends on the promotion of viable alternatives, Surfrider invites citizens to use a water-carrier instead of a bottle and use water fountains provided by local authorities. Surfrider also challenges local authorities and European institutions to promote reusable containers and facilitate free access to drinking water fountains. We are calling for the abolition of single-use bottles and, where it is necessary, also for the improvement of retreatment and reuse of plastic bottles.
