Every year Earth Day Network creates a campaign to help promote conservation of our Earth. This years focus is eliminating plastic pollution:
“From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.”
– Earth Day Network
What can you do? Earth Day Network offers a list of resources that help fight for their cause. Their first step is to learn, educating yourself on what the problem is and why is an excellent way to understand the true importance of the movement. They offer a toolkit that offers information about plastic and includes a Plastic Pollution Calculator to help you create a plan to eliminate plastics and track your progress. There are so many ways to help save our planet, we touched on Recycling just a few days ago. Show your love for our wonderful planet and make an impact today!
