The theme for World Environment Day 2023 was focused on solutions to plastic pollution under the campaign #BeatPlasticPollution.

The world is being inundated by plastic. It is relatively cheap to produce, durable, flexible, and easy to transport. But the sheer volume of plastics produced and discarded every year negatively affects our ecosystems, wildlife, the climate, human health, and the economy.

A systems change is needed to address the causes of plastic pollution. This starts with reducing problematic and unnecessary plastic use, reusing and refilling existing products to move away from a throw-away culture, and replacing other products with recycled plastic alternatives.

Here are some of our recent achievements and initiatives to #BeatPlasticPollution:
