Notre terre est recouverte par des millions de tonnes de déchets plastiques ; Souvent, ces déchets sont en plastique à usage unique qui aurait pu être remplacées par des options plus durables. Ce plastique a un impact particulièrement négatif sur l'environnement marin en particulier sur la faune.

Plastic in the marine environment is one of the greatest challenges of our modern age. Each plastic bag, cup, fork or spoon.... used once and discarded so casually (out of sight out of mind). This plastic is often mistaken for food by sea birds and turtles, provides a choking or entanglement hazard. Even minutely small plastic microbeads from cosmetics are causing big problems up the food chain.

What world do we live in where the convenience of a plastic water bottle, a carrier bag, a tray to display our apples is more important than our only home?

Do people even realise that these plastics in themselves are produced from crude oil and chemicals derived from a limited supply of fossil fuels? What legacy are we leaving our future generations?

Open to all ages and capacity is 100 plus

Merci au Dr Jacek Pijanka qui a développé l' idée de l'exposition avec moi.
