World Environment Day has been held annually on the 5th June since 1973 and is one of the largest global platforms for environmental public outreach and has been celebrated by millions of people across the world since starting. The theme for this year will focus on solutions to plastic pollution under the campaign #BeatPlasticPollution.
Facts from the UN Website:
More than 400 million tonnes of plastic
is produced every year worldwide, half of which is designed to be used only once. Of that, less than 10 per cent is recycled.
An estimated 19-23 million tonnes
end up in lakes, rivers and seas annually. That is approximately the weight of 2,200 Eiffel Towers all together.
– tiny plastic particles up to 5mm in diameter – find their way into food, water and air. It is estimated that each person on the planet consumes more than 50,000 plastic particles per year –and many more if inhalation is considered.
