Ireland is a small island surrounded by water. Not many Irish people appreciate that simple fact. It has a huge impact on our lives but its a blindspot for many. To live healthily we need clean land and seas. Currently we pollute the sea and the land. Plastic is everywhere. Just a thought – think how you can reduce your use of plastic. If you do you will help protect our food supply and reduce the amount of plastic in our environment.

Read a report in the link below about how fragments of plastics less than 5mm have entered our food and will cause harm to human health and the environment.
