LET’S MAKE GOVERNMENT SIT UP AND DO MORE TO STOP PLASTIC KILLING OUR PLANET – HELP US RAISE MONEY TO FLY AN ECO TURTLE BLIMP AT THE GRETA THUNBERG CLIMATE CHANGE RALLY ON 20TH SEPTEMBER AT PARLIAMENT SQUARE. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN…
What's the problem?
Today, 91% of plastic isn't recycled. It's ending up in our oceans and in landfill where it takes centuries to break down. More than 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in the ocean every year, so if we are to protect our planet, we need to move faster.
With more and more virgin plastic being created, we need to show that there are already billions of reusable tonnes available that can be used in plastic packaging.
What's the solution?
When businesses start publicising the quantity of recycled plastic in their packaging, it will fundamentally close the loop between ocean bound plastic and giving it a second life.
What's the end goal?
Our ultimate goal is to fast-forward the UK Plastics Pact (WRAP) target of 30% recycled content in all plastic packaging by 2025. It is possible to eliminate virgin plastic and we can do more, faster.
What are we doing?
So we want to launch a giant eco turtle swimming in plastic in front of Parliament on 20th September, the day of Greta Thunberg's climate strike to showcase that 100% recycled plastic is possible. We want to journey around various high-profile locations during Recycle Week (23rd-27th September), like schools and universities, to show CONSUMERS OF ALL AGES AND CULTURES how they can demand more recycled content in packaging.
Please support us to help change plastic waste for good. All money will go to creating and launching the blimp in various locations during this campaign.
