I’m challenging myself

I’m challenging myself to fundraise for Greenpeace #BECAUSE.....

Single use plastics are polluting our home, and I believe everybody can give a helping hand, -including me!

I will go 30 days without plastics and do community clean ups to help take steps towards a greener world.

I really hope you’ll support me by donating to my #BECAUSE fundraiser for Greenpeace. I’m doing this because Greenpeace is making a real difference by acting on climate change, working to save our oceans, forests and other vital ecosystems and encouraging sustainable consumption and production.

I know so many others out there care about these issues as much as I do, so please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation now. Every gift counts and together, we will have an incredible impact.

These 30 days have been an awesome experience. More than anything, I appreciate everyone who took the time out of their days to help build a greener world. I look forward to keep learning about sustainability and helping give back in my own community. Thank you! :)

As of 2021 there is 5.25 trillion macro and micro pieces of plastic in our ocean & 46,000 pieces in every square mile of ocean, weighing up to 269,000 tonnes. About 8 million pieces of plastic makes their way into our oceans daily.

CHALLENGE the outcomes of major corporations ignoring environmental policies and factors. In March 2020, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Nestlé and Unilever were found to be responsible for half a million tonnes of plastic pollution in six developing countries each year, in a survey by NGO Tearfund.

Why now, and why YOU can help

Saturday 24th Apr
With all that has been going on in the world right now, it’s easy to find yourself overwhelmed. I know I have, but it’s also a timely opportunity for self reflection. Right now is the perfect time to get in tune with your values, and support initiatives that reflect them! It is my strong belief that any small effort counts if the thought behind it is sincere. So if you agree that it’s time to start being proactive on how we protect our oceans and more- a donation, spreading awareness elsewhere, anything you can do, HELPS. 

Thank you to my donors

Great idea Sofia! - we need more people to do this! I have tried to go plastic-free for several years now...it takes effort, but so worth it for our world :-)
