World Environment Day 2023: Help to Combat Climate Change

Monday, 5th June is World Environment Day – an annual global event that encourages individuals and organisations to come together and take action to protect our planet. 

This year, the theme is #BeatPlasticPollution, highlighting the urgent need to address the growing plastic pollution crisis. At Eclipse Energy, we actively commit to saving the planet through our offering of renewable energy solutions. 

In this article, we will delve into the alarming statistics surrounding plastic pollution. And provide practical tips on how you can make a difference.

Shocking Statistics on Plastic Pollution

  • Every year, approximately 8 million metric tons of plastic waste end up in our oceans, causing irreparable harm to marine life and ecosystems.
  • If immediate action is not taken, experts estimate that by 2050, the amount of plastic in the oceans will surpass the number of fish.
  • Plastic takes hundreds of years to break down, contaminating soil and water sources, posing a significant threat to wildlife and human health.
  • Single-use plastics, such as plastic bottles, straws and bags, contribute significantly to the pollution crisis, with billions of them being discarded each year.
  • Only 9% of all plastic waste ever produced has been recycled. The rest continues to accumulate in landfills and the environment.

Eclipse Energy’s Commitment to a Sustainable Future

As part of our commitment to a greener future, we provide renewable energy solutions that help reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Furthermore, by harnessing the power of solar panels, air source heat pumps, and battery storage systems, we enable homeowners and businesses to generate clean energy. Ultimately, lowering their carbon footprint, and saving on energy costs

Furthermore, together we can make a significant impact in mitigating climate change and preserving our planet for future generations.

Tips to Reduce Plastic Pollution

  1. Say no to single-use plastics: Opt for reusable water bottles, shopping bags, straws, and coffee cups.
  2. Recycle and dispose of plastic responsibly: Follow local recycling guidelines and properly dispose of plastic waste.
  3. Support eco-friendly alternatives: Choose products with minimal packaging and made from sustainable materials.
  4. Participate in community cleanups: Join local initiatives to remove plastic debris from our environment.
  5. Spread awareness: Share knowledge about plastic pollution and the importance of reducing plastic consumption with friends, family, and social media.

On this World Environment Day, let’s unite to protect our planet, one step at a time. Together, we can make a difference by choosing renewable energy solutions and adopting sustainable practices in our daily lives. 

Furthermore, the notion that one straw or one bag won’t make a difference is a common misconception. Ultimately, it is the collective action of individuals that truly makes a significant impact on the fight against plastic pollution.

By taking action today, we can create a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future for all.
