My Pledges

Stop Depletion of Fish Stocks
Stop Ocean Acidification by Reducing Carbon Emissions
  • Pledge 4: Reduce your energy use at home (think insulation, turning off lights, shorter cycles on washing machines).
  • Pledge 5: Conserve water (shorter showers, turn off tap when brushing teeth etc). It takes a lot of energy to pump, treat and heat water.
  • Pledge 6: Waste less food. Agriculture and food production uses vast amounts of carbon dioxide.
  • Pledge 7: Buy locally produced and seasonal food to minimise carbon emissions of transportation.
Stop Plastic Marine Debris
  • Pledge 1: Refuse plastic drinking straws.
  • Pledge 2: Avoid cosmetics that contain microbeads (hidden plastic). Check for polyethylene and polypropylene.
  • Pledge 3: Carry a reusable water bottle.
  • Pledge 4: Choose biodegradable or reusable cutlery and plates over plastic.
  • Pledge 5: Dispose of plastics properly; don't flush (e.g. Q-tips, sanitary products or sticking plasters).
  • Pledge 6: Use reusable shopping bags over disposable plastic bags.
  • Pledge 8: Reuse, recycle and opt for no packaging when possible
