Plastic is one of the largest problems for our waterways across the globe currently. Our modern convenience driven lifestyle has put pressure on the environment. Every year 1 million metric tons of plastic gets dumped into our seas and by the year 2050 it is expected that there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. But across the world people are driven not to give up and accept this and are trying to stem the plastic tide. Blue Planet Aquarium share this view and are committed to making changes to try and reduce the amount of single use plastic we use every year.
We are excited to announce that a member of our dive team Becky will be starting a single use plastic free challenge for 2 weeks. We want to find out how easy it is to completely eradicate single use plastic from your life and is it even possible to get the products in the local area. She will be sharing her experiences, advice and tips across the two weeks. Her colleague Joe will also be keeping a close eye on her progress and helping by encouraging Becky all the way. So make sure you keep an eye on our Instagram and facebook feeds.
