Take action for a plastic-free future: Greenpeace shows how with their toolkit of seven easy actions you can take. When it’s broken down like this, the job, as well as the transition does not look nearly so intimidating, does it? Saving marine life and getting plastic out of the environment might not be so hard after all.
So, lets get started! The program consists of easy steps that anyone can take; they do not have to be done in order, or even all be done, but they will be more effective if they are all completed.
Action 1: Learn, share and join
Action 2: Send a letter to the editor, share your message through media
Action 3: Help create plastic-free supermarkets
Action 4: Get restaurants and cafes to ditch single-use plastics
Action 5: Lobby for a single-use plastic ban in your town or beyond
Action 6: Organize a Community Clean-Up and Brand Audit
Action 7: Start a Plastic-Free Future community group
I expect that all who read this are intelligent, concerned people, and will at least take a look at this material. And, realize that it is up to us to eliminate the odious presence of life destroying plastic. Each of us can start, for instance, by refusing to buy or use single use plastic: you know, straws, stir sticks, plastic bags, coffee cups cutlery, water and juice bottles, etc. A bit of personal change will be required, but Hey, you’re adaptable enough for that, aren’t you?
This toolkit is 41 pages long, although there are a lot of pictures and illustrations. Download it. Print it, Read it. And, above all, use it.
