How is plastic pollution affecting our planet?

  • Plastic is a large contributor to marine waste. 🐒
  • The degrading of plastics in the ocean has been discovered to release methane, a greenhouse gas. 🌊
  • Increasingly damaging to Humans, Animals and the Environment. πŸƒ
  • Plastic is a large contributor to climate change. 🌀
  • Plastic pollution can come from bottles, packaging, bags and evening clothing! πŸ‘š

If you would like to look into some further reading on the effects of plastic pollution on the environment and how to support the ongoing causes to reduce our impact on the earth, the following websites Earth Day 2024 and Friends of the Earth provide lots of wonderful information to raise awareness and educate.

As climate change and our impact is one of the many ever changing aspects in our lives, I have found seeking out new knowledge and viewing the changes/what changes we can make as a community very insightful, as adaptation can be viewed as a key factor in how we shape our lives! 🀝

How can we contribute to Earth Day?

I myself have recently begun researching more into the impact I may be having on the earth and the changes that could be made whilst also expanding my knowledge on the on-going changes that are occurring around the world by reading blogs, websites and news articles. As well as my love of watching any David Attenborough documentary! πŸ“š 🐻
