Join the UN Challenge to Beat Plastic Pollution

beat plastic pollution

World Environmental Day is June 5th and, as a part of it, the United Nations launched a global challenge to beat plastic pollution. In response Plaine Plaine is challenging our followers to join in and help beat plastic pollution.

Beat plastic pollution is the theme of this year’s World Environment Day, which happens on June 5. The movement encourages you to give up single-use plastics and replace them with reusable and sustainable alternatives. Participants are asked to announce their commitment on social media and tag their friends to help spread the message within 24 hours. The concept is based on the successful ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

A growing number of celebrities and environmentalists are taking part in the challenge, including actor Adrian Grenier. Grenier has vigorously campaigned against plastic straws as co-founder of Lonely Whale. “We use 500 million of these suckers every single day in the U.S. alone,” the UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador said in his video. “The good news is that people and businesses are making the switch. And it’s so easy, all you have to do is switch to an environmentally friendly alternative.”
