Justin pledges to #PassOnPlastic with Sky Ocean Rescue


Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, has signed a pledge to #PassOnPlastic with Sky Ocean Rescue – a commitment to reduce single-use plastic consumption.

Launched in January 2017, Sky Ocean Rescue aims to highlight the issues of ocean health, particularly single-use plastic, and inspire people to make small changes.

Justin said:

“Sky have been working hard to raise awareness of ocean health and I am delighted to join their campaign and look at ways to reduce my own plastic consumption.

“It is deeply worrying that there are 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans, with 8 million tonnes more ending up there every year. We all have a role to play in protecting our oceans – that’s why I have signed my pledge to #PassOnPlastic and encourage others to do the same.

“Seeing the Sky Ocean Rescue’s whale, Plasticus, which is made up of a quarter of a ton of plastic – the amount that enters our oceans every second – really brought the scale of the problem home to me.
