In the USA, about 100 million plastic utensils are used every single day. Over 1 million seabirds and 100.000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year. More than 3 million children under the age of five die annually from environmental factors. The average person eats 70.000 microplastics each year.
These are all facts that made me very upset. I wondered what else I can do to make a difference. What personally hits me the most is how many products are available and how much we waste. Especially how much single-use plastic products we use on a daily basis: for take-away food, school parties, work events, concerts.
I decided to go to schools and raise awareness of plastic polllution. To make people understand the problems we are facing and that things have to change.
I'm happy to give school talks, read my book "1,2,3, who's cleaning the sea?" and raise awareness of ocean pollution and talk about how we can reduce our waste. Please feel free to get in touch.
