World Environment Day takes place on the 5th of June every year. It was created by the United Nation and remains to this day its principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
Yesterday, on the 5th of June 2018, United Nations Environment have published an article and an infographic about plastic pollution which has become an epidemic.
Indeed, every year, enough plastic is thrown away to circle the Earth four times. Much of that waste doesn’t make it into a landfill, but instead ends up in our oceans, where it’s responsible for killing one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals every year. For the good of the planet, it’s time to rethink how we use plastic. Read on to get the facts and learn how you can beat plastic pollution.
