The Plastic Soup Foundation has not only the global risk arising from the use of plastics on the agenda. We also focus on solutions. Our overconsumption of plastic must be reduced. Not by banning on all plastics, but by going on ‘The Ultimate Plastic Diet‘.
Maria Westerbos, director and founder of the Plastic Soup Foundation: “We can all consume less plastic. As an individual, as a family, as a company. On the website plastichealthcoalition.org we offer tips for everyone how they can reduce their own plastic use in everyday life. Of course, by using fewer plastic bags, but also by taking your own coffee mug to your favourite coffee shop or to work. You can also stop eating chewing gum. What many people do not know is that most chewing gums are made of flavoured plastic. Every little bit helps. Just being aware already makes a difference. The Ultimate Plastic Diet is a movement. A revolution. The whole world should go on a plastic diet.
