    EXPLORE

    The sand of a Brazilian beach is littered with plastic waste. In the distance, a woman can be seen with her touring bike.
    Do we really need to wait until Earth Day in April to roll up our sleeves and start cleaning up? Even if there are already some 5,000 billion pieces of plastic in our oceans, small everyday actions really do count.

    Beach Scourge

    Hard to believe, but this image was taken in Superagui National Park. Even worse, this is a UNESCO World Heritage site called Atlantic Forest South-East Reserves. This group of 25 protected areas, including Superagui, is one of the last vestiges of the Atlantic Forest. 

    The SOS Mata Atlântica Foundation points out that the Brazilian economy is based on a destructive growth model based on territorial expansion and deforestation. Unsurprisingly, almost 90% of the original area of the Atlantic Forest has disappeared. Despite this, some efforts are being made to regenerate this native forest with its astonishing biodiversity.

    Nevertheless, the problem of waste in the oceans leaves me speechless. To give you an idea of the scale of this disaster, National Geographic has released a series of photos about 10 SHOCKING FACTS ABOUT PLASTIC

    “Worldwide, 73 percent of beach litter is plastic: filters from cigarette butts, bottles, bottle caps, food wrappers, grocery bags, and polystyrene containers.”

    “By 2050, virtually every seabird species on the planet will be eating plastic.”

    “Around the world, nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute.”

    “Estimates for how long plastic endures range from 450 years to forever.”

    “More than 40 percent of plastic is used just once, then tossed.”

    What are the solutions? There aren’t 10,000 of them…

    Don’t blame others or become eco-anxious.
    Promote reuse and recycling.
    Avoid single-use plastics.
    Take small steps every day to improve our living environment.
