Stella McCartney Fights River Thames Plastic

We are all becoming more aware of just how much plastic pollution is impacting our environment, with many of us taking positive steps towards reducing our plastic usage. However, this does not change the fact that despite our best efforts to recycle everything we can, a staggering 8 million tonnes of our plastic waste ends up in our oceans each year and it is estimated that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

Thankfully, hope is on the horizon; Fashion designer Stella McCartney (daughter of Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, leading vegan sausage brand creator and animal rights activist) has announced she will be teaming up with the charity Thames 21 to reuse recyclable rubbish and turn it into adidas by Stella McCartney products.

Stella is lifelong vegetarian, committing to producing cruelty-free fashion using her parents influences to make a positive and productive stand against plastic pollution, as well as being anti-leather and anti-fur, so her plight for a better world is incessant;

In 2017, McCartney announced her collaboration with the company Parley – a New York based company whose strategies involve educating people on their use of plastic, diverting plastics from landfill and preventing it from entering our oceans in the first place and finding ways to make use of existing plastic that has ended up in our oceans, so her continuing dedication to the ocean clear up is a praiseworthy attempt at finding a solution to the catastrophic affect plastic is having on our environment.
