We are a marine conservation charity.
Our objective is,
stopping plastics entering the seas
Marine plastic litter is often the consequence from the misconception of:
It’s only one piece of plastic, what harm can it do?
The sea is vast, rubbish will not effect it adversely.
My life is not affected by plastics in the oceans.
Climate change has nothing to do with marine plastics.
But the truth of the matter is:
There is over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the sea and counting.
Plastics are in the food chain!
1/3 of all fish caught off UK shores have plastics in them.
Seafood eaters ingest up to 11,000 tiny pieces of plastic every year with dozens of particles becoming embedded in human tissues.
The degradation and breakdown of plastic represents a previously unrecognized source of greenhouse gases.
The striking colours, height, emotive tagline and shape of the
BinForGreenSeas is designed to act on two levels. Direct and subconscious.
Its strong visual triggers stimulates the electrochemical signals transmitted to the brain delivering the message; when disposing rubbish, using any bin will protect marine life.
“The bin is eye catching with a strong environmental message. It is a talking point along the seafront, with residents and holiday makers.”
“The positive visual image they display, helps to encourage visitors to the beach to dispose of their litter responsibly.”
“We especially loved the bright and colourful design of the bins and hope that it will encourage children to dispose of their litter
