Earth day is a huge global event of political action and civic participation - people clean up their neighborhoods, sign petitions, plant trees and discuss subjects like plastic polution.
"EDN’s End Plastic Pollution campaign includes four major components:
Leading a grassroots movement to support the adoption of a global framework to regulate plastic pollution;
Educating, mobilizing and activating citizens across the globe to demand that governments and corporations control and clean up plastic pollution;
Educating people worldwide to take personal responsibility for plastic pollution by choosing to reject, reduce, reuse and recycle plastics, and
Promoting local government regulatory and other efforts to tackle plastic pollution. "(Source: www.earthday.org)
