Alex Scott outlines how she has changed her use of plastic

Sky Ocean Rescue Ambassador Alex Scott has outlined ways in that her use of plastic has changed at the calendar year, and how sport may help.
“I think the two chief things I have shifted that are noteworthy in my day-to-day life is carrying my water jar everywhere I go. It is so simple, as I always wish to fill up my water bottle, but it improves my life.
“Second, having a tote bag. I’m not using plastic bags. Even supermarkets, making that small change, getting people to consider the’why’ . It is the habitual change also.”
“It’s essential for adults, also. I believe because it, that it can be a lot easier to change mindsets that are younger and it’s exciting. You set in your own ways when you’re older. Individuals need to understand the importance.
“For example, going to have a coffee every day, how about I have my own coffee mug? That may be yours, it could be personalised. Small changes such as that can have enormous consequences.
“The children’ power to assist on this is indeed infectious. They wanted to go home and teach their parents about what it signifies.”
“I think sport and football particularly can play a major part in helping decrease plastic use. I recall being in the Arsenal training ground and viewing all players have their own bottle. It can be personalised, and becomes a part of your apparel, like a pair of boots.
“Players may buy into it more, use their platforms in the perfect way, and affect so many individuals. They are so impressionable.”
Over eight million tonnes of plastic is thrown out annually and washed out to sea.
It takes centuries to crack down. It is eaten by animals. And it is in our food chain. Your seafood supper could have a garnish that is synthetic. Scientists don’t know what impacts it has on our health.
Sky Ocean Rescue is doing something about that. To get involved, visit the campaign site . You may view our documentary.
