How we can all Reduce Plastic Pollution

Monday, 22nd January 2018

Plastic pollution has been making the headlines in recent years.

The BBC's 'Blue Planet 2' series has also increased our awareness of the plastic problems.

In this Ted Talk, Natalie from City to Sea (www.citytosea.org.uk) shares how easy it is for us all to have a positive impact on reducing plastic pollution.

In 2016, City to Sea campaigned to the 9 supermarket chains in the UK, pushing for cotton bud sticks to be made from paper rather than plastic. Millions of cotton buds are flushed every week, and end up in our rivers and seas. The campaign was successful and paper sticks have been launhced from this year.

There are many other products we flush that are made from plastic, and Natalie shows that changing just these small habits can have huge impacts.

We all need to reduce our use of single use plastics, for the health of our seas, our planet, and ourselves.

In case you're apprehensive about the nature of your neighborhood tap water, search for a model with an inherent channel.
