8 tonnes of plastic is dumped in the sea every minute.
Globally, plastics have reached every part of the world’s oceans with the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ thought to be 6 times the size of the UK.
Through reducing our own use of plastic we can take action, following the fifth mark of mission 'to safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustain the life of the earth'. We have produced a short flyer with 5 easy steps to take to reduce your own plastic use and updated the popular the Plastic - less Lent challenge with dates for 2019. Live it out, talk about it and slowly together we can re-shape society.
