“Worldwide, the Campaign grows, and it needs to grow until everybody knows exactly how important clean water in the environment is for our future, and for the future of all life on this blue planet.
If we keep polluting the sea, the rivers that feed into it, and the rain that keeps the soils fertile, then we will ultimately pollute ourselves into global bad health.
Pollution has been building up and up around this planet since the start of the industrial revolution and we have not been able to cap the amount, and wide variety of pollutants, so Nature can cope with them. We have also been creating new materials like plastics which pollute in ways that are new to Nature – ways that will cause the natural world centuries of hardship unless we help to clean up our rubbish and adapt our production methods to stop pollutants and the damage they cause.
This means changing our consumer ways too and working closely with all those developing ways to recycle and achieve a balanced blue-green economy for people, and a balanced blue-green environment for all air, land and aquatic life” (Grant)
