From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering beaches and landscapes to clogging waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of the planet. Plastics pollution is a major issue and it seems you cannot open a newspaper or turn on the TV without getting bombarded about this.
From David Attenborough to the film Plastic Planet, to campaigns led by actors such as Leonardo di Caprio and Jeremy Irons and the model Bianca Jagger, everyone is denouncing the impact plastics are having upon our lives and our environment.
Everyone can make a difference, no matter how small. We can prevent waste by stopping purchasing bottled water and using refillable containers, through to managing plastic and preventing it becoming waste by reusing items, and recycling others, we can all do our bit to make a change.
The starting point needed is often a change in our behaviours and attitude.
But how do Ditto Sustainability change behaviour?
The Earth Day Network's mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Ditto Sustainability work with organisations to influence individual behaviour change through education; we do this by providing short "What is?" and "how-to" interactive online learning content.
