WHY WE MUST CHANGE
Global Warming & Climate Change
The planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere.
Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with the five warmest years on record taking place since 2010.
Not only was 2016 the warmest year on record, but eight of the 12 months that make up the year — from January through September, with the exception of June — were the warmest on record for those respective months – recently 2020 tied this record.
The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of more than 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass.
Data from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost an average of 286 billion tonnes of ice per year between 1993 and 2016, while Antarctica lost about 127 billion tonnes of ice per year during the same time period.
The rate of Antarctica ice mass loss has tripled in the last decade
Global sea level rose about 8 inches in the last century.
The rate in the last two decades, however, is nearly double that of the last century and is accelerating slightly every year
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent.
This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and hence more being absorbed into the oceans.
The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tonnes per year
Loss of forests contributes between 12 percent and 17 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions
20% of the world’s oxygen is produced in the Amazon forest
Tropical forests, where deforestation is most prevalent, hold more than 210 gigatonnes of carbon
All above statistics acquired from NASA
Anywhere from 3 trees to an area the size of a football field is cleared per second. Nearly 100,000 acres of forest is cleared per day. About 15,000,000,000 trees are cut down every year
It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests
20% of the world’s oxygen is produced in the Amazon forest
over 80% of the original forest that covered the Earth 8,000 years ago has been cleared, damaged or altered
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet
It can grow 3 feet in height in 24 hours under appropriate climate conditions
Unlike other woody plants, bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years
Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants
Eco-systems, Bio-diversity and Endangered species
Tropical rainforests which cover 6-7% of the Earth’s surface, contain over half of all the plant and animal species in the world
We are responsible for mass extinction
Rainforests only cover around 2 percent the total surface area of the Earth, but really about 50 percent of the plants and animals on the earth live in the rainforest
Since 2000, 6 million hectares of forest have been lost each year
Within four square miles of tropical rainforest, you will find 1500 flowering plant species, 750 types of trees, and many of these plants can be helpful in combating cancer
100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually
Recent studies have revealed marine plastic pollution in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals and 40% of seabird species examined
Over 150 plastic bottles litter each mile of UK beaches
Plastic pollution can now be found on every beach in the world, from busy tourist beaches to uninhabited, tropical islands nowhere is safe
There may now be around 5.25 trillion macro and microplastic pieces floating in the open ocean. Weighing up to 269,000 tonnes
Plastic has even been found in the deepest part of our oceans, the Mariana Trench
Local, National and International Pollution
Air, land, and water pollution caused 9 million premature deaths in 2016, or 16% of all deaths worldwide
About 92% of all pollution-related mortality is seen in low-income and middle-income countries, with the poor, marginalized, and young hardest hit by the health effects of the contamination
More than 80% of sewage in developing countries is discharged untreated, polluting rivers, lakes and coastal areas
In some of the least-developed countries, the figure tops 95 percent

As the rainforest disappears, so do many potentially valuable drugs. Currently 25% of Western pharmaceuticals are derived from rainforest materials
About 90% of 1.2 billion people living in poverty worldwide depend on rainforests for their daily needs
Worldwide, 1 in 12 people depend on coral reefs for food, storm protection, jobs, recreation and other income sources
Yet 70% of coral reefs have been destroyed, or at least threatened
In the Caribbean region, coral cover has declined from 50% to 10% in the last thirty years alone
Examples BELOW of what we INTEND to avoid
A recent study by MCS found many own-brand wet wipes from 10 leading chains that claimed to be flushable failed standardised tests
Disappointingly, some well known corporate giants still use sweatshops and child labour today
A number of these companies have also successfully suppressed all efforts by their employees to unionise and improve working conditions
