Alex Scott outlines how she has changed her use of plastic

Sky Ocean Rescue Ambassador Alex Scott has outlined ways in that her usage of plastic has changed from the last year, and the way that sport may help.
“I think the two main things I have changed that are notable in my day-to-day life is taking my water bottle, everywhere I go. It’s so simple, as I constantly need to fill my water bottle, but it also improves my life.
“Secondly, obtaining a bag tote. I’m not using plastic bags. Even supermarkets, making that shift, inducing people to think about the’why’ too. It is the habitual change also.”
“It is essential for adults, too. I think that it can be much easier to change mindsets, because it and it is exciting. When you’re older, you’re frequently set in your own ways. People have to understand the importance.
“For instance, going to find a coffee every day, how about I’ve my own coffee mug? That may be yours, also it can be personalised. Changes like that could have huge impacts.
“The youngsters’ energy to aid on this is so contagious. They wanted to go home and teach their parents about what it signifies.”
“I think sport and football particularly can play a major part in helping lower plastic use. I remember being at the Arsenal training ground and watching all players have their own water bottle. It can be personalised, and becomes a part of your kit, like a set of boots.
“Players can buy into it more, use their platforms in the ideal way, and affect so lots of folks. They are so impressionable.”
More than eight thousand tonnes of plastic is thrown away each year and washed out to sea.
It takes centuries to crack down. It’s eaten by creatures. And it is in our food chain. Your fish supper might have a garnish that is synthetic. Scientists simply don’t know what effects it has on our health.
Sky Ocean Rescue is doing something about it. To get involved, see the campaign site here. You may view A Plastic Tide, our documentary.
