The Solar Impulse Foundation, and UN Environment have very similar approaches when it comes to protection of the environment: we believe in the importance to highlight solutions rather than problems.
This is why a few weeks ago, in collaboration with UN Environment, we decided to launch a call for solutions to fight one of the biggest challenges of our time: plastic pollution - and even though we don’t focus on problems, it’s always good to remind that 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our ocean each year.
So, we received many innovative solutions that could help fight one of the biggest challenges of our time, and we’ve selected a few that we’d like to highlight.
Through this initiative, we aim to encourage people to take concrete action to fight plastic pollution.
If you have a solution to fight plastic pollution, you can still join our challenge of #1000solutions and submit it here.
