World Environment Day 5th June
Joint Global Campaign of the Intl. WeLoveU Foundation and WomanDongA

Clean Action, Plastic Free, #Be BRAVE Challenge

*BRAVE: Bring Reusables Always for Visits Everywhere

A surge in disposables combined with an ecological collapse will hit us the most.
You may think you are inconspicuous and low impact. But, we must start with ourselves before we change the world.
The WeLoveU’s Be BRAVE Challenge promotes the attainment of environmental rights for all.

Are you ready to Be BRAVE?

Everyone with a “container” can go anywhere, no matter whether it’s a market or small store, to join the campaign.

Humans, the main culprit of endangered sea turtles

-Source: National Institute of Ecology under the Ministry of Environment, South Korea

Sea turtles mistake a floating plastic bag in the ocean as food they like such as jellyfish and seaweed and ingest it.

Because sea turtles don’t have teeth to break down food, such plastic waste can cause blockages in their throats and damage intestinal wall causing eventual death.

Because of the unique structure of their oesophagus, sea turtles cannot vomit up something once they have swallowed it. So, they die with a stomach full of sea trash.

Note!


The Ministry of Environment has implemented a plan to reduce single-use waste

-Targets 35% reduction in the use of disposables by 2022
