With a donation you make an important contribution to collect and recycle ocean plastic. In order to achieve our goal – plastic-free oceans – responsible consumer behavior is also necessary. This is the only way we can proactively counteract the cycle of disposing and cleaning up.
A fitting example:
Mopping up water spills on the floor while the faucet is still running and the water continues to flow onto the floor.
A long-term goal should also be the elimination of single-use plastic, which can be replaced by reusable or recyclable packaging. In the English-speaking world, this is often referred to as the 3 R’s.
- Only what is really needed should be purchased.
- Consider buying a needed product used.
- Most products are lying around no longer needed, these could be resold.
- Products can also be shared, as most are only needed temporarily – “sharing” is the keyword.
- Repair products or have them repaired instead of disposing of them.
- Food can be bought unpacked.
- As already described under point 1, most products can be reused. They change hands when they are no longer needed or can be repaired if they have a defect.
- In the packaging sector, which plays a major role in single-use plastic, there is the possibility of switching to reusable packaging materials.
- Another form of reuse is real recycling, i.e. feeding back into the production cycle. Often this is not possible because of too high costs or because of the mixed plastics used. Each packaging has individual requirements. This leads to plastics that are made from different components. Certain blends are not reusable and can only be disposed of.
- Real recycling is possible, for example, with the well-known PET bottles, if they end up in the right place. These can be cleaned, sorted by color and shredded. New PET bottles can be made again from the raw material.
