Why should you care…?

  • Plastic never goes away. Ever.
    Every piece of plastic that we have created is still here on earth in one form or another.
  • Plastic waste affects fish, sea creatures, birds and other wildlife.
    Eating plastic waste is harmful for fish and marine animals, it could also be harmful for you when you eat fish and seafood!
  • Plastic is dangerous to our health.
    Plastic bottles and polystyrene/styrofoam containers contain chemicals that are known to cause cancer. Most of us have heavy industrial chemicals in our bloodstream because of the plastic we use every day.
  • Plastic pollution is a major contributor to climate change.
    In Cambodia the affects of climate change are felt intensely. Plastic is a significant part of the problem we can see and address in our daily lives.

Who are the real plastic polluters? Asia Vs the West. (and what you can do about it?)

by Sarah Rhodes As an Australian living in Asia, I often feel conflicted over the plastic pollution issue. Constantly questioning (and being questioned) about why it’s so messy here, where the plastic comes from and why there isn’t any recycling. So I want to draw a...
