By Working Together We Can make a Difference this World Environment Day

Posted By Martin Ballard CEnv, 29 June 2018

Willmott Dixon Group Environment Manager and Chartered Environmentalist, Martin Ballard, tells us how by working together we can make a difference this World Environment Day.

World Environment Day (WED) provides us with an opportunity to take action - and we have much to celebrate with improvements in our environment.

Making an impact

It’s not about just one day. We’re asking friends, colleagues and communities to consider what they can each do to play their part in tackling our love/hate for plastics - to challenge each to take a pledge, take action and take time to feedback, using the hashtag #pledgelessplastic.

My pledge is to challenge why and how we use plastics and work with suppliers and organisations to reuse materials directly or indirectly in their value chain.

 

Let's get back to the plastic problem…

Is the root cause of the problem the material or how it’s used? As with many readily available low-cost materials, the value given to plastic can be seen in how it is readily thrown away in the hedgerows and verges alongside our roads, railways, canals and streams. The pathway of plastic pollution is horrifically clear to see, from our communities, windblown or weather beaten into micro fragments to drains and watercourses.
