Guidelines for Reducing Plastic Waste (GRP) and Global Partnership
The certificate of GRP has 7 main backgrounds.
- We urge you to beware of the environmental expenses which the government, the National Assembly, and the global corporations have to cover for the current environmental pollution, especially marine pollution. In the Asia-Pacific coastal area, where extensive ocean pollution occurs the member states of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) bear the expenses of about $1.3 billion a year.
- We recommend global corporations take concrete actions to cut the usage of plastic, which is the main cause of marine pollution. The world produces 330 million tons of plastic every year and about 12 million tons of it flows into the ocean and breaks down into small pieces and becomes a micro-plastic. The amount of plastic in the ocean today is enough to circle the Earth about 400 times.
- We suggest fast fashion companies and companies that produce products based on petrochemical materials, prevent overuse of water, and let the contaminated water out into the ocean (suggesting not to release contaminated water into the ocean). Currently, 7,000 to 10,000 liters of water are used to make a pair of jeans, and 2,700 liters of water, account for 20 percent of the wastewater that fast fashion companies send to the ocean.
- We conduct campaigns on the issues of global warming and resource development which cause the North and South Poles to disappear. When the glaciers in the Arctic Ocean, including Greenland melt, it will rise at 73 meters. So the rise in sea level is expected to bring about a huge climate crisis.
- The Covid-19 crisis is accelerating climate change. At this time, companies' efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and reduce plastic have become a crucial focal point for the fundamental changes in the industry, civil society, and the environmental policy system of each country.
- We recommend that companies that produce products, especially those involved in product packaging, actively reduce packaging, and strive to ensure that existing packaging is recyclable.
- We recommend complying with the plastic guidelines promoted by the United Nations and the European Union.
GRP supports plastic reduction activities and climate actions with the United Nations Ocean Conference.
