Green Firebreak was born out of a simple idea to put together an organised and concise timeline of the History of Plastic (which we managed to do).
That said, the deeper we went the more worried about the plastic pollution we got. The numbers didn’t lie, and the science was irrefutable. If there are things that cannot go unnoticed – undoubtedly - plastics has become one of them. They say ignorance is bliss but when it comes to the health of our environment, it must not be.
This contents’ website is not meant to discredit plastics because after all, it has served us well for decades. However, we have reached a point where there’s no other option but to join forces and drastically reduce the amount we use every day, every week, every month of every year.
The main goal of Green Firebreak is to create awareness to a problem that is affecting - and will continue to affect - every single one of us until we put a stop to it.
We don’t want to pressure you into anything but we do want to inform you, so you can make the most responsible and sustainable choice.
The jury is still out, and you still can make a difference. We have been played by the plastics industry for years, there’s no denying that. Yet, now, you hold the cards.
At the end of the day, as consumers, we have the power to make change. But is up to you to take the first step and make that change.
I hope you let me join you so we can - together - tackle this crisis that is
the Plastic Age.
Now is not the time to back down and hold back. So let’s get up and let’s do this.
