The Global Search for Education: Director Line Hadsbjerg on How We Get Plastic Pollution Out of Our Lives

  1. Alternatives — In close correlation to banning single use products, support and rewards should be given to those who find creative, sustainable alternatives.
  2. Make polluters responsible for the waste they produce.
  3. Effective waste management — There are many parts of the world where the streets are littered with plastic waste. Rich countries have been dumping their waste on poorer countries for decades, many of whom have no effective waste management facilities to handle their own waste, let alone the dumping of international waste.
  • Always carry a water bottle with you that you can refill.
  • Try to avoid buying your fruit and vegetables in plastic packaging — support the ZERO WASTE stores.
  • Take a reusable bag with you.
  • Buy local.
