EUROPEAN UNION ELECTIONS | JUNE 6-9, 2024

EUROPEAN UNION ELECTIONS | JUNE 6-9, 2024

The next European Union Elections are scheduled to take place between 6 and 9 June 2024. EU citizens will turn to the ballot boxes to decide which Members of the European Parliament (MEP’s) will represent and advocate for the concerns of constituents at the EU level.

Europe is one of the largest producers and consumers of plastics worldwide. If we want the EU to tackle the plastics crisis, then we need a European Commision and  European Parliament that is committed to delivering real solutions to protect people and the planet.

Join the #BreakFreeFromPlastic EU Elections Campaign to call for a new EU Government that prioritises the reduction of plastic production, tackles plastic pollution and gives precedence to the health and safety of people and planet.

Every stage of plastics life cycle is a health threat to humans. 
Communities are exposed to pollutants during oil extraction.
Workers inhale toxic gasses during manufacturing.
Consumers ingest and absorb plastics toxins!

A 75% reduction in production is Needed

It’s simple to make a huge difference in the reduction of single use plastic from supermarkets. Our patented systems can dispense the thickest of products anything from cooking oils to ketchup etc. The manufacturers of these products could generate more income also by reducing the trucking to supermarkets in the traditional plastic packaging. We continue our uphill battle! We have requested MiamiDade County assist us in getting a meeting with publix. #reuse #refillnotlandfill #plasticstreaty #plasticfree #landfill #healthylifestyle

🥤🥤 ينتهي كل عام ما يصل إلى 12 مليون طن من النفايات البلاستيكية في المحيطات، و 9% فقط من إجمالي البلاستيك الذي تم إنتاجه منذ الخمسينيات يُعاد تدويره.
لكن في الحقيقة، إن معظم المخلّفات البلاستيكية التي يتم جمعها لا يُعاد فعلياً تدويرها على الإطلاق – في حين أن الجزء الضئيل الذي يُعاد تدويره يحتوي على مزيج سام من المواد الكيميائية التي تجعلها غير صالحة للاستخدامات الغذائية وغيرها من الاستخدامات الاستهلاكية.
أزمة التلوث البلاستيكي أصبحت مسألة خارجة عن السيطرة، ونحن بحاجة إلى العمل الآن! ✊🏿 ✊🏽✊🏼
⛔️🥤 طالب/ي قادة الدول في الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا بدعم معاهدة دولية قوية تكافح التلوّث البلاستيكي!👈🏻 act.gp/Plastic2-1-FB
