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.

My home island, Hawaii, has some of the world’s dirtiest beaches, with fish eating plastic particles just days after being born — no surprise given that nearly 2/3 of all plastic becomes waste after a single use.”
“I took a vow to go after single-use plastic, not only because it’s ugly but because it is killing us. Plastics are on track to emit almost 1/5 of global greenhouse gases. Tackling the plastic pollution crisis a key part of ensuring a liveable climate.”
“Turning off the tap on plastic pollution requires joint efforts by governments, cities, the finance sector, businesses, including 20 million waste pickers worldwide, Indigenous Peoples and civil society organisations.”
A planet free of plastic pollution is possible, but it requires a shift towards a circular economy and systematic change at all levels from governments, industries and everyone everywhere.
Join UNEP and Advocate for Life Below Water, Jason Momoa’s (prideofgypsies) call for greater efforts to #BeatPlasticPollution & remind decision makers that it’s time to eliminate unnecessary plastic products & agree on a strong #PlasticsTreaty.

Ako i vama zalaske ovih dana muti pogled na plastiku u prvom planu, pridružite nam se u rješavanju korijena problema - zaustavljanju goleme proizvodnje plastike za jednokratnu upotrebu! 💪

Alternative postoje, riječ je o prelasku na višekratnu upotrebu predmeta. Potrebne su sistemske promjene za koje trebamo političku volju i to na svim razinama. Stoga potpišite peticiju u opisu profila kojom tražimo snažan Globalni sporazum o plastici na razini UN-a.

🤔 Γιατί λέμε ότι η ανακύκλωση δεν αρκεί για να αντιμετωπίσουμε αποτελεσματικά την πλαστική ρύπανση; 👉 Επειδή στην πραγματικότητα μόνο το 9% των πλαστικών απορριμμάτων ανακυκλώνεται, ενώ η παραγωγή πλαστικού προβλέπεται να τριπλασιαστεί μέχρι το 2050! Η ανακύκλωση απλά δεν μπορεί να καλύψει τέτοιες τεράστιες ποσότητες πλαστικού. ⁣
⁣
🤔 Τι πρέπει να γίνει δηλαδή; 👉 Να στραφούμε στην επαναχρησιμοποίηση και τη μείωση του πλαστικού μιας χρήσης, αφήνοντας την ανακύκλωση ως τελευταία λύση. ⁣
⁣
🤔 Και πώς μπορεί να γίνει αυτό; 👉 Απαιτώντας από τις κυβερνήσεις να το κάνουν νόμο, υπογράφοντας μια Παγκόσμια Συνθήκη για τα Πλαστικά!⁣

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
