Description

One of the ills of our era is the overconsumption that threatens our ecosystem. Plastic pollution in particular, reflects a widespread tendency to disregard our environment, so much so that by 2050, the oceans could contain more plastic than fish, as per the Ellen MacArthur Foundation/WEF report. This reminds us of the need to consider the fragility of our limited resources, but also our duty – especially towards younger generations – to act immediately through an ecological consensus, and increased awareness. What can be done to reduce or more effectively prevent the degradation of our planet?
