Martin Dorey
“We need to turn to the simplest of economics. Market forces tell us that if we stop buying plastic, the producer will have to change or go out of business. So if a product doesn’t fit your ethos, don’t spend your money on it. Vote with your wallet.”
Martin Dorey, No. More. Plastic.: What you can do to make a difference – the #2minutesolution

Sebastian Junger
“On the other hand, Franklin continued, white captives who were liberated from the Indians were almost impossible to keep at home: “Tho’ ransomed by their friends, and treated with all imaginable tenderness to prevail with them to stay among the English, yet in a short time they become disgusted with our manner of life… and take the first good opportunity of escaping again into the woods.”
Sebastian Junger, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging

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

Martin Dorey
“What you can do now Look out for misleading claims on packaging. Plastic is still plastic, even if it is ‘degradable’. Some ‘eco-friendly’ packaging can still only be composted in industrial composters and will spoil recycling streams if it gets into them. While sustainable plastics are better than oil-based, it’s still important to think about what will happen to it after you’ve used it.”
Martin Dorey, No. More. Plastic.: What you can do to make a difference – the #2minutesolution

Martin Dorey
“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.”
