Retulp wants to help reduce plastic waste in nature and the oceans significantly. The plastic soup is still growing. We believe that the first step is to try cutting back on the amount of plastic we use. Prevention is even better than recycling!
There is more and more plastic waste floating in our oceans. The so-called ‘plastic soup’. Due to weathering, sunlight and waves, this plastic breaks into little pieces. This leads to serious pollution. The oceans represent 72% of the earth’s surface and they are our main suppliers of oxygen. For more than half of the population, the ocean is their primary food source.
Plastic doesn’t decompose biologically. Plastic also releases toxic substances. All kinds of animals that live in or feed on the ocean, even the little plankton, will think the plastic waste and microplastics are food. For them, this is fatal. This toxic waste often finds its way into our food chain. The majority of this contamination comes from the land. Plastic waste that does not end up in a waste management system, for example, because it wasn’t thrown in the trash, finds its way to the sea via the rivers and other waterways. Plastic waste on land is also very harmful to animals and nature.
The plastic water bottle is an important polluter.
In addition to reuse, we want to encourage the use of tap water as a healthy, cheap and environmentally friendly alternative to water packaged in plastic (single-use) bottles. Tap water in the Netherlands is the cheapest way to quench your thirst and it’s incredibly healthy. Dutch drinking water companies supply premium quality tap water. When we use more tap water instead of bottled water, transporting plastic water bottles from one country to other countries becomes unnecessary. When we all drink more tap water instead of bottled water, this prevents the use of hundreds of indisposable plastic water bottles a day.
