"Plastic is one of the major problems we are facing today and we are only beginning to realise now just how much harm it does to the environment and to our health. Short-lived and single-use plastic products need to become a thing of the past and we need to move to a zero-waste circular plastic economy, where plastic is valued as a raw material, to be reused, recycled and not thrown away. For this to work we all need to be on board, actively reducing our own plastic use, calling on governments to step up to the challenge and cleaning up any plastic we find in the environment. Change starts with knowledge: by learning about plastic, the threats it poses and the solutions available, you too can be part of the change."
