Based on the doom-and-gloom stories we see on our news feeds, you might believe there is no hope for our big blue planet—but this year’s groundbreaking environmental achievements show the future to be brighter with every passing day.
From international governments and corporations ditching single-use plastics to the world’s increasingly speedy shift towards renewable energy, 2018 was a year filled with exciting milestones and historic initiatives. Thanks to international research and reports, people have become increasingly aware of the dangers of plastic pollution – and they have been quick to respond. Scientists are coming up with more and more sources of sustainable energy than ever before. Oceans are being cleaned up for plastics. Many projects are running to remove chemical and plastic waste from the ocean.
After this progress we are hopeful that we can change the face of Earth.
