HOW THE PROJECT GOT ITS START

stop igelitkám
In 2009, a group of us went to visit our friend in Andalucía, Spain, where he was working as a chef in a restaurant. On our first day there, we ran into a problem when we went to go buy some groceries at a local supermarket. None of the thin, plastic bags that we often used for our own shopping were anywhere to be found. We asked around, eventually learning that the local community had begun shunning the use of these plastic bags because of the large amounts of waste they caused. During our trip we saw just how widespread this movement had become, unlike the situation back home.

Two days later, we went into town one evening to enjoy a huge international festival that had the entire city celebrating.

HOW WE CAN MAKE THIS CAMPAIGN HAPPEN

skládka
We want to support the efforts of young activists creating social pressure to limit the use of plastic bags, as well as any bags or containers containing PET materials. This campaign is intended to reduce the amount of landfill waste and water, air, and soil pollution that occurs based on the choices we make every day.
  • RECYCLE: Up to 30% of manufactured plastic bags and plastic waste can be repurposed.
  • REDUCE COSTS: Reduce the costs associated with removing and sorting recyclable waste brought to landfills.
  • IMPROVE THE ENVIRONMENT: Contribute to a cleaner environment and protect the ozone layer.

WHAT’S MOTIVATING US

Our goal is to show that even without government support, we can create a better atmosphere to collectively improve the environment through our enthusiasm and actions. Plastic bags are harmful for the environment. Our informational campaign and presentations stress the benefits of using recyclable objects whenever possible—this is in the best interest of maintaining stable, vibrant ecological systems all around us.

In 2010, Diana Cohen, a well-known international activist, spoke to a packed TED Talk audience about the threats that birds are facing due to widespread plastic use. The audience burst into applause at the conclusion of her speech and was awed by some of the beautiful designer birdcages she had brought along with her.
