Responsibility

We are all in this together

We are all part of the system that is causing the problem. Therefore we can all be part of the solution. Negligence is an important cause of plastic pollution. It is estimated that 80% of marine litter comes from land and that this pollution comes mainly from household waste, which is poorly recycled, dumped in landfills or abandoned in nature.
