World Environment Day is a global event celebrated annually on June 5th. Led by the United Nations, World Environment Day is dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and encouraging positive action.
This year, the theme is centered around finding solutions to the pervasive problem of plastic pollution, aiming to inspire individuals and communities to take actual steps towards a sustainable future.
As an eco-friendly holiday accommodation provider in the stunning Peak District, we understand the importance of minimizing our impact on the environment and are committed to sharing actionable tips for everyone to contribute to the fight against plastic pollution.
Plastic pollution poses a severe threat to our planet, impacting our health, economy, and ecosystems. Single-use plastics, such as bags, bottles, and straws, accumulate in landfills, pollute oceans, and harm wildlife.
What we often don’t realise is that tiny plastic particles make their way into our food chain, posing risks to our health. Micro plastic particles are so small we don't see the problem, but it's crucial that we address this issue urgently and collectively.
Did you know that plastic takes 450 years to decompose? From 1950 to 2017, an estimated 902 billion tons of plastic was produced and the frightening thing is that 7 billion tons of this has become waste. Sadly less than 10% of plastic used around the world is recycled. 12 million tons of plastic are poured into the ocean every year!
On this World Environment Day, let's remember that our collective actions, no matter how small, can create a significant impact on combating plastic pollution. By refusing single-use plastics, recycling correctly, supporting eco-friendly products, participating in clean-up initiatives, and spreading awareness, we can all contribute to a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable planet.
Let's embrace these simple steps in our daily lives and inspire others to do the same. Let us know what actions you are taking. Together, we can beat plastic pollution and create a greener future for generations to come.
