MCS urges people to get through July plastic free



The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is once again launching its campaign challenging the public to give up single-use plastics for the whole of July. 

The charity has run the Plastic Challenge since 2015 and last year saw over 5,035 register to give up using single use plastic.
 
Simon Reeve, TV presenter and MCS ocean ambassador, says: “Our planet is becoming poisoned by plastic. The vast amount in our oceans has become an environmental emergency as a direct result of our throwaway society. That’s why I’m supporting thousands of people living without single use plastic this July as part of the Marine Conservation Society’s Plastic Challenge. Don’t just get depressed about plastic - stop using it!” 

MCS beach cleaning data has revealed a rise of 180% of plastic litter found on beaches in the last two decades posing a huge threat to wildlife and humans. Plastic bags, bottles and tiny plastic pieces, are regularly found in the stomachs of turtles and other sea creatures and in some cases have caused their death from starvation or choking. 

MCS has written a book, ”How To Live Plastic Free – a day in the life of a plastic detox”, giving tips and practical advice on how to remove unnecessary plastic at every opportunity.
