We want you: Take the pledge to stop plastic pollution this July!
Our oceans were once clean, now they’re choking on plastic.
Every year one million seabirds die from plastic pollution. A million. They’re consuming pieces of bags, bottle lids, bread clips and more. Confusing the plastic for their food, the adult birds carry it back to their nests, where their chicks are filling up and even dying from it before they’ve even learnt to fly.
Australia’s oceans contain the richest, most diverse life on Earth. Such global significance brings a global responsibility. We have a privilege and a duty to manage our oceans wisely and with the future in mind.
That’s why this Plastic Free July we’re recruiting a special group of people who will act to turn the tide on plastic pollution — and we want you! We’ve got a winning plan to go to the source and stop plastic pollution choking our oceans. Together we can save our turtles, dolphins, whales and sea life from being drowned in plastic. Take the pledge to give up single-use plastics this July!
Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges people to do something about it. Find out more about Plastic Free July.
