WAR ON PLASTIC – WHY PEAK SCHOOL IS TAKING A STAND

If you need further convincing that we all should be having a war on plastic, and not just Peak School, then I encourage you to read the below article.

The SCMP article entitled – Hong Kong ‘poisoning its own seas as plastic pollution soars’ can be read by clicking

According to the latest research the amount of plastic particles found in the waters surrounding HK have increased 11 fold (yes, 11) in the past 3 years.  The researchers have also claimed that most of the plastic was produced locally.  If this is correct we cannot blame other countries and we must take responsibility as a collective.

A number of our children joined the Climate Change rally today and the message, our children and thousands of other children around the world are giving, is that they have had enough.  They are frustrated that despite all the facts, research and data, governments around the world are doing nothing.

One example of how little governments are doing is a statistic I read about last week.  Apparently one well respected and established country, MPs when meeting as a Parliament, have only talked about Climate Change once in the last 2.5 years.    Even worse was the fact that less than 10% of the MPs turned up to talk about it.  No wonder our children are getting frustrated and upset.
