World Environment Day – Let’s break up with plastic

Tuesday 5 June marks World Environment Day and we are using this platform to rethink how we use, reuse and dispose of plastic.

Did you know that unless things change fast, the seas will hold more plastic than fish within the next 25 years?

The Council wants to be a part of that change – to eliminate pointless plastics from our day-to-day lives and we are using World Environment Day (Tuesday 5 June) as a platform to make a difference.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), who host the annual international day dedicated to environmental improvement, has set the 2018 theme as “Beat Plastic Pollution - If you can’t reuse it, refuse it”. We are using this theme as an opportunity to rethink how we use, reuse and dispose of plastic.

At the full Council meeting in May, Councillors committed to eliminate all single-use plastics within the Council and encourage its partners to do the same. 

The council is acting now to make this pledge a reality and we can all individually think about and cut drastically our reliance on plastic.

Breaking up with plastic start with these nine simple tips. 

Let’s #PledgeLessPlastic together this World Environment Day and make a positive impact!
