Plastics Pollution & Your Brand

Posted in Blog

Let’s address the big pink elephant in the room… 


or rather, the small plastic straw.



It seems pretty harmless, and if this were the only one we wouldn’t have to talk about it. The reality is we use 550 million straws a day in the US and the UK alone, and those 550 million straws area breaking down into another million bits of marine debris. Where do those micro-plastics end up? If not on your dinner plate, it takes up toxic space in the stomachs of marine animals, wreaking havoc on a hierarchy of ecosystems through biomagnification.



Cancer, toxins, and pollution..Don’t tell us twice - We know its bad. But do THEY? 


Find out how the global plastics crisis are impacting your brand and your business in our next webinar, presented by Lonely Whale Executive Director, Dune Ives.
