Today on World Water Day, we are launching a campaign asking young people to make the switch from disposable plastic water bottles to reusable drinks containers. Our campaign #GotTheBottle is targeting second level schools across Ireland in an effort to reduce the waste caused by single-use disposable plastic bottles. Young people from Ossory Youth, Kilkenny, Youth Work Ireland Galway, Foróige Cork and ECO-UNESCO, Dublin are involved in the campaign. UN World Water Day highlights the global water crisis which is effecting 663 million people globally, who are living without a safe, clean water supply. Increasingly extreme weather conditions like drought and flooding, which is caused by climate change, are making this issue worse. “Greenhouse gases emitted from the production of plastic bottles is impacting on the world’s climate and the future of young people" commented Kelly O’Sullivan, Foróige Cork. Rebecca Bourke, from Ossory Youth, Kilkenny calls on young people to make the switch; “There are people from poorer regions of the planet already suffering hugely in their everyday lives from the effects of climate change, and we can all make a difference by using reusable bottles.” “We must begin saving the planet now before it’s too late!” Alex, Youth Work Ireland Galway.
