Zero plastic in our oceans - How to take action by Nathaly Ianniello

Edition Vagnon, April 2019 - 128 Pages

Cach year, eight million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans. And by 2050, there will be fewer fish than plastic in all the world's seas. How did we get here?
 
This guide, with interviews with actors involved in the field : researchers Jean-François Ghiglione and Stéphane Bruzaud ; the navigator Yvan Bourgnon ; or Antidia Citores from the Surfrider Europe association, and Romain Troublé and André Abreu from Tara Expéditions, gives a clear-sighted overview of plastic pollution and the initiatives, often inspiring, to stop it.
There's a cry for help! Faced with such an ecological disaster, it has become urgent to act, each at his own level, by exercising our power as citizens and consumers, starting by reducing our plastic waste at the source; by hunting for plastic in our homes, kitchens and bathrooms, and by opting for alternative consumption.
 
This book is composed of two parts: one is a "plunge into plastics": an inventory and requalification of the various plastics, the new European policy, the circular economy, missions at sea for collection and scientific monitoring; the other part proposes a practical notebook: gestures that are simpler than they seem, within everyone's reach.
 
Nathaly Ianniello has always been interested in the environment. For fifteen years, she was a specialized journalist, advisor to the office of the Minister of the Environment Corinne Lepage, and to WWF France. A diver, swimmer and waste collector on the coast, she has written ecological popularisation books and children's novels, all set in the sea.
