Committed to water
Water and climate change are regularly cited among the most serious crises facing humanity in the coming decades. The links between the two issues are very close.
Water is involved at all levels of the climate system (atmosphere, hydrosphere, land surface, biosphere…), but also droughts, floods, melting ice and rising sea levels. According to the latest UN report, ” water is our most precious resource, a “blue gold”.
“To which more than 2 billion people (a quarter of the world’s population) have no direct access. It is not only essential to survival, but also a health, social and cultural issue at the heart of human societies. “
Of all the possible projects, we’ve chosen to focus particularly on seas and oceans, and plastic waste.
A seabed littered with all kinds of detritus… That’s today’s sad reality. The vast majority of this waste comes from the mainland, sometimes several hundred kilometers from the sea. The cause? Many of the negligent behaviors responsible for the famous “7th continent” and plastic pollution in particular. Plastics that degrade slowly into microplastic particles that we ingest unknowingly in doses of 5g. per week, the equivalent of a credit card!
80% of marine litter has been dumped on land!
What can we do?
We need to take action now! So, neighbors, businesses, political representatives, now is the time for action!
We’d like to help you organize large-scale collections of plastic and other types of garbage throughout France
on the weekend of March 19, 2022, on March 22 for World Water Day, and throughout the year…
