While I love looking after the environment around me at home, I’m also acutely aware of what is happening to our shared environment. Plastic, as you would all know, is terrible for the planet, especially our oceans. This year’s theme for World Environment Day is #beatplasticpollution . We all need to reduce our reliance on plastic, particularly single-use plastic like straws, bags, coffee cups, water bottles etc to help stop the flow of plastic into the environment. Also with the state of the recycling system in many countries being shown to be inadequate we need to reconsider our purchases with ‘recyclable’ packaging. Much of this recyclable material is apparently going to landfill. But it shouldn’t be all up to the individual. We need to collectively call out these inadequacies in our waste stream and require our government to do more in protecting our beautiful environment with measures to tackle recycling and reducing waste.
This is an old image of mine as is the waterfall in my stories. It’s nice to pull out these images in aid of a good cause 😊
