Plastic Waste on the Beach

Sunbath on the Beach in between of Plastic Waste

Close to the dustbin

Who wants to have clean beaches and enjoy an unburdened holiday season, will make the short distance way to provided dustbins or take his garbage at home. And if there is no refuse bin available, then do good for yourself, for others and for the environment and take your rubbish and dispose of in an appropriate place. Plastic – less means more ocean and nature!

Plastic-free: Tips for reducing plastic

Plastic-free Life

Plastic is everywhere. Food packaging, clothing, storage containers, household appliances – no matter what we use or do – we come into contact with it every day.

For the benefit of our health and the environment, we should reduce our plastic consumption. After all starting materials for plastic are the black gold, ie crude oil, as well as coal and natural gas. Thus, not only valuable resources are wasted. But also the disposal pollutes the environment, as conventional plastic is not biodegradable. As evidenced by the huge vortex of plastic trash in the oceans, it remains for centuries in the environment. A sad consequence of the throwaway society.
