End Plastic Pollution
Earth Day 2018 Campaign   

From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.

In response, Earth Day 2018 will focus on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastics and catalyzing a significant reduction in plastic pollution. 

Our strategy to End Plastic Pollution will: 

  • Lead and support the adoption of a global framework to regulate plastic pollution
  • Educate and mobilize citizens across the globe to demand action from governments and corporations to control and diminish plastic pollution
  • Inform and activate citizens to take personal responsibility for the plastic pollution that each one of us generates by choosing to reject, reduce, reuse and recycle plastics
  • Work with universities, school teachers and students to End Plastic Pollution
  • Work with other organizations and networks and make Earth Day 2018 a platform to End Plastic Pollution by developing resources that others can useand build partnerships.
  • Promote the work that cities and local governments are doing to tackle plastic pollution
  • Empower journalists across the globe to report on the problem and its emerging solutions.

 

Make a pledge to reduce your use of plastic

 Here is my short award wining documentary the Garbage of Jupiter Beach!

What weighs 20,000 pounds and takes nearly 4,000 people to move it? The Garbage on Jupiter Beach.
 A local resident Anita Lankler made a deal with the City of Jupiter. You let our dogs on the beach and we’ll pick up the garbage. This little group grew into a membership of 4,000 plus and became the “Friends of Jupiter Beach.”

Once a month hundreds of people, 6 to 86, from fifteen zip codes surrounding Palm Beach County, converge onto Jupiter Beach… to pick up the garbage.
