Our Dumfries team will be at Youth Beatz 2022 this weekend encouraging people to make the water bottle pledge.
The water bottle pledge is a personal commitment to stop using single-use plastic water bottles and replace them with refillable bottles. A refillable BLP bottle is available from the team at Youth Beatz. By pledging you are helping to ensure that fewer plastic bottles pollute our environment and enter the ocean.
As part of our accredited Environment course, which is part of our work with The Holywood and their DG Youth Protecting Our Planet grant. Through this course, our young people have been researching the impact of plastic bottles on the environment. They have discovered that it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose and that by 2050 experts believe there will be more plastic bottles than fish in our oceans. This information shocked us, which is why we decided to use part of our funding to buy PET Plastic, which is 100% recyclable, to give away to people and encourage them to use less single-use plastic.
So join us this weekend in a Water Bottle Pledge and say “No!” to single-use plastic water bottles and pledge to use your free BLP PET plastic water bottle!
