Today is #RefuseSingleUse day. #SingleUsePlastics give us the impression of saving time & effort...single use plastic cups, single use plastic straws, single use plastic bags. The list is endless. We need to change, & we need to start somewhere. So today, why not say 'no' to the plastic cups in your local tea stall? Ask them for a glass or metal one & be the start of something new.

The Plastic Brand Audit is a yearly initiative to gather data on the top polluting companies (and this year, this global citizen-science project celebrates its 5th birthday!). Last month, our team of dedicated volunteers cleaned up a stretch of the Kasimedu Beach, Chennai. The plastic waste they found was sorted and analysed to find out which company is putting out the most plastic. Our findings about who we found to be the top polluters, will soon be published. #breakfreefromplastic #brandaudit2022
