A Plastic Planet
Campaigners are aiming to touch the lives of one billion people as part of One Plastic Free Day on June 5 this year. As part of an international day of action that will coincide with World Environment Day, people are asked to take a photo of the one thing they want to go plastic free and post it across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the tag #oneplasticfreeday. From your drink bottle, biro and toothbrush to the pointless plastic bags wrapped around bananas, or even the plastic drink stirrer that remains useful for a matter of seconds yet remains on the earth forever. This major new visual report is set to shed new light on the extent of the global plastic crisis, identifying hotspots around the world. The photos will form the basis of an interactive world map on oneplasticfreeday.com and following the June 5 results will hopefully make the government and big business make their own plastic reduction pledges.
