EARTH DAY 2019

april, 2019 - Bluewater updates

Keeping up our efforts to return the planet to health again

Bluewater celebrates Earth Day on April 20. Why? Because we as a company and team of individuals are on a mission to help end throwaway plastic pollution of our oceans and lands. And return our planet to health. 

Since April 22, 1970, Earth Day has been mobilizing tens of millions of people in just about every country around the world to create a new environmental paradigm. Many of us at Bluewater share the annual Earth Day outpouring of energy, enthusiasm and commitment – and do our best to do all we can as individuals to turn words into action and become catalysts for change. 

See the anti-plastic pledges our team members are making to celebrate Earth Day 2019 here.

Plus, please do your bit for the planet by helping us to reduce, refuse, reuse, recycle and remove single-use plastic bottles by joining Bluewater founder Bengt Rittri´s (photo right) Global Clean Drinking Water Movement.

 

In nature, nothing exists alone.

Reality bites

  • USD 2.5 trillion = the annual cost of plastic pollution
  • 8 million tonnes = the amount of plastic entering our oceans every year
  • 1 million = the number of plastic bottles purchased every minute
  • 2 billion = the number of ”green” actions carried out by Earth Day Network, including planting hundreds of millions of trees in areas needing reforestation in 32 countries
