Let’s work together to keep our eyes on the real prize — a healthier, more sustainable future. This is why we do what we do. It’s easy to turn the other way, ignoring the huge impacts of small materials. If we agree to work as a unified force, we can repair what we’ve damaged and give future generations of both human and animal the planet they deserve.
Love this!! Reducing plastic waste👍🏼AND using the paper wrapper as a fun arts and crafts project! Also I had no idea that the Japanese love Kit Kat so much! 🍫😋 . #repost @mylaststraw.co with @get_repost ・・・ Double tap and share this if you think this is great news! 💚💚 Let us know your thoughts down below 💭 .

Nestlé has estimated that the new initiative will help to reduce the brand’s plastic waste by approximately 380 tonnes per year. The initiative is part of the company’s commitment to only use 100 per cent recyclable and reusable packaging by 2025 . The updated versions will come with instructions on how to make an origami paper crane to encourage customers to use their packaging to get creative instead of just throwing it away. . Small changes can make a big impact 🌍
Twenty-two million trees are to be planted every year in Ireland over the next two decades as part of a plan to tackle climate change, the Government has said. While the Government’s climate action plan, published in June, proposed 8,000 hectares – or 19,768 acres – of new forestry every year in a bid to capture carbon emissions, it did not specify the number of trees involved. In its latest calculations, it suggests this will involve 2,500 conifers or 3,300 broad-leaf trees for every hectare planted. The target is for 70 per cent conifers and 30 per cent broad leaves. “The climate action plan commits to delivering an expansion of forestry planting and soil management to ensure that carbon abatement from land-use is delivered over the period 2021 to 2030 and in the years beyond,” a Department of Communications Climate Action and Environment spokeswoman said.

We closed our #summerproject#beachcleanups in cooperation with @qmusic_be and are glad to announce these fantastic results. Compared to last year: 50% more volunteers 40% less in total volume of #litter 60% less volume litter per #volunteer This indicates the progress being made and is an accomplishment of one of our goals: More people doing less effort. These results may have several causes: - Effort made by #qbeachhouse2019 being #plasticfree - enforcement of the communicipal #beachteam - different weather conditions - the concept is better known We hope can copy this outcome one way of another to other coastal cities and raise standards. Join us, it's #citizenscience#loveoostende @oostendedestadaanzee
Single-use plastics pose a MAJOR threat to our climate. .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Research states that over 99% of plastic is made from fossil fuel. Since corporations aren’t taking responsibility for their role in creating the plastic pollution problem, we’re taking action to hold them accountable.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Join or host a @BreakFreeFromPlastic #brandaudit2019 this September to identify corporate plastic in YOUR community.
