We can all do something to make a difference – Emily StevensonThe plights of plastic have reached every corner of the Earth and infiltrated every aspect of our daily lives. This makes plastic one of the deadliest plagues to ever face humanity... but also gives us the very reason why we can fix this.
Plastic is in all of our lives, we can all do something to make a difference. It doesn't matter where you are or what you do, we can all do something to make a difference.
As an individual, carry around a re-usable water bottle or coffee cup or perhaps join a beach clean. Beach Cleaning is often undervalued as a cosmetic exercise, to just 'make a place look nicer'. However we at Beach Guardian have seen, first hand, the difference just one hour on the beach picking up the plastics can make. Not only on the welfare of the environment, but has also been shown to equally improve your own mental health and well-being.
As a business, all the same things apply of course, but there are many other things that all organisations can do to join the movement against plastic pollution. Again, this has benefits that include preserving the natural world; improving mental health, wellbeing and productivity of members of staff whilst also contributing towards Corporate Social Responsibilities.
It doesn’t matter what your business does or service it provides, we can all do something to make a difference.
For example, Beach Guardian has worked closely and successfully with many local businesses. One of our greatest success stories comes from the brilliant Old MacDonald’s Farm. This family run tourist attraction has taken no half measures when contributing to the preservation of the planet. They are now completely single-use plastic free in their cafeteria, take part in the Refill and Final Straw schemes and regularly sponsor and attend Beach Guardian beach cleans.
Rick Steins have also been dedicated supporters of Beach Guardian, including hosting a month long charity lunch in their beautiful St Petrocs Bistro, wherein every customer paid a cover charge which was donated to Beach Guardian.
We also have other organisations like Nissan and Stephen Scown’s Solicitors whom now give all their staff a few paid days off each year to volunteer in their community, which Beach Guardian can assist with by providing organised private beach cleans.
So if you would like any advice on how Beach Guardian can help you or your organisation join the movement against plastic pollution, please email: email@example.com.
