Many people feel that the only real solution are policies that reduce the amount of plastic produced in the first place. There are so many plastic and petrochemical companies making it impossible to curb the amount of plastic contaminating our oceans so perhaps if they won’t stop, the challenge falls on the consumers to stop buying them? We know that plastic just doesn’t end up in our oceans, but our air, soil, food and bodies.
So why are people not scared or taking more action? I don’t have the answer to that but I know that HartiSWIM can change our own future by merely changing our attitude! In fact we all can. By casting our voices across these waters, perhaps we can help make ripples.
