What can be done?

Even if plastic pollution is a global issue, we can, as single individual, still make a difference by reducing our "plastic footprint".

As consumers and member of a community we can contribute in finding alternative solutions to plastic and reduce the derived pollution through daily small actions such as:

  • Reduce the use of plastic in our daily activities by avoiding single use packaging;
  • Choose reusable bags over plastic bags or if there’s no alternative use the same plastic bags more than once;
  • Promote recycling and the valorization of plastic waste as a source of energy. Encourage local communities and government to give a second life to wastes;
  • Use biodegradable products;
  • And of course, not dump waste in the environment.
