This year, Earth Day is celebrated under the theme, โ€œPlanet vs Plasticsโ€ and raises awareness on the harmful impact plastic pollution has on the planet Earth. By dramatically cutting carbon emissions and plastic production we can strengthen ocean resilience and reduce the impact of climate change in the world. The choice is ours, so let us remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
