Stop the plastic flood, Southeast Asia
Our oceans are sinking in plastic! Today, hundreds of thousands of pieces of plastic waste float in every square kilometre of the oceans, claiming the lives of tens of thousands of animals every year. With the idea of counteracting the flood of plastic in the oceans and promoting clean water for people and the environment, we support an important model project of the nature conservation organisation WWF with hej:pure. Through our donation, we are helping to combat the causes of plastic waste. By promoting recycling infrastructures in Southeast Asia, the WWF is specifically working to protect the world’s oceans. Education campaigns for the local population, workshops and training courses ensure greater environmental awareness. In this way, the avoidance of single-use plastic through tourism, the reduction of plastic waste in marine-protected areas as well as the establishment of waste management systems are being promoted.
