There really is only one planet. And we're rapidly destroying it. We need to act!
This summer I visited the not-so-pristine-anymore-beaches in Greece. Snorkelling with the kids, marvelling at the beauties of the sea - and picking up bits plastic along the way. Camping on beaches, looking out over a bright blue sea and pebbled beaches - littered with bits of plastic: lids and caps of drinking bottles, fishing nets, straws, and millions of tiny bits of plastic. And that is only what we see...
I'm not a saint, my life is not without plastic. But I'll try. And I hope governments and manufacturers will take there responsibility as well.
It needs to change!
