The Climate Crisis is a Health Crisis (Graphic from The Climate Reality Project)
The world’s leading scientists agree we must slash emissions by 2030 and keep global warming below 1.5 degrees C to avert a truly dangerous future. Carbon pollution poisons our air, water, and soil, threatening our health.
When we protect our planet, we protect ourselves. The Climate Reality Project is calling on the world’s leaders to ACT NOW.
Social Plastic Foundation’s mission is to rid the oceans of plastic and provide a lifeline to communities in need. They help some of the poorest communities globally to collect plastic before it becomes problematic ocean plastic. The Plastic Bank then sell this Social Plastic onto companies to use in place of virgin plastics. Social Plastic Foundation is a charity that provides ocean plastic & recycling awareness, along with training and support.
The Social Plastic Foundation is a charity established to support, enhance & grow the world’s Social Plastic recycling ecosystems. These are recycling communities in developing regions that utilize The Plastic Bank’s recycling reward & incentive platform to improve livelihoods while preventing ocean plastic.
The Social Plastic Foundation encourages us to help to increase the reward that recyclers receive. They believe this is how we make plastic waste too valuable to enter the ocean.
