Quotes by Martin Dorey  (?)

“Bottled water comes in plastic, usually made from virgin plastic (non-recycled), which is made from oil and has to be transported (with a high carbon footprint). It sits on a shelf until you buy it, where it may leach chemicals – such as BPA and dioxins as well as microplastics – into the water. And while it has to pass safety standards, it is only tested when it is bottled. Recent studies also showed that 93% of bottled water showed signs of microplastic contamination.”
Martin Dorey, No. More. Plastic.: What you can do to make a difference – the #2minutesolution

“We always tell anyone who ever does their #2minutebeachclean that it matters because every piece of plastic that gets removed from the ocean environment, or any environment, is a piece that won’t go on to kill. It won’t end up in a whale’s stomach or strangling a seabird. And it won’t end up becoming thousands of toxic pieces of microplastic.”
Martin Dorey, No. More. Plastic.: What you can do to make a difference – the #2minutesolution

“WE RELEASED THE #2minutebeachclean app in January 2018, to help beach cleaners in the UK and Europe count what they find. They can use it to take a picture of their #2minutebeachclean, then log the amount of each type of litter they have picked up. They can also attribute their #2minutebeachclean so, in time, we’ll be able to see patterns of what type of litter is washing up where.”
