Abigail Aguilar dijo: “No es sorprendente ver a las mismas grandes marcas en el podio como los principales contaminadores de plástico del mundo durante tres años seguidos. Estas compañías afirman estar abordando la crisis del plástico, pero continúan invirtiendo en soluciones falsas mientras se asocian con compañías petroleras para producir aún más plástico” External link

Lakshmi Narayan dijo: “Las corporaciones dependen de los trabajadores informales del sector residuos para recolectar sus envases, lo que les permite cumplir con los compromisos de sostenibilidad y justificar el uso de grandes cantidades de envases de plástico de un solo uso. Sin embargo, el cambio actual hacia envases de plástico de menor valor amenaza los medios de vida de los recicladores , que no pueden revender artículos de tan baja calidad. Los sistemas en los que operan los recicladores deben cambiar,” External link

Paul Moers : “Marqt heeft verzuimd om het achterliggende verhaal goed te communiceren. Wat in de pers bleef hangen, was dat de prijzen idioot hoog waren. De supermarkt had moeten zeggen: ‘We zijn inderdaad duurder, maar dat komt omdat we veel meer aandacht hebben voor duurzaamheid’” External link

Paul Moers reageert: “Ik twijfel of Action als formule blijvend populair blijft. Voor het management is kinderarbeid uiteraard taboe, maar je maakt mij niet wijs dat arbeidsomstandigheden optimaal zijn op locaties waar Action zijn spulletjes bestelt.

Karoline Andaur sier: – Det er blitt et så enormt stort problem som folk ikke klarer å ta det inn over seg. Vi har en visjon om at det ikke skal være plast i naturen i 2030, External link

dagbladet Sunday, October 18, 2020 6:13:00 PM CEST

Karoline Andaur sier: – Når vi ser hvordan det påvirker alt liv i havet har vi ikke noe valg. Vi ser hvordan det skaper problemer langs elvene før de fører plasten ut i havet. De må bruke forurenset vann til å vaske hus og klær. Det fører til oversvømmelser og forurenser drikkevannet. Innbyggerne drukner i plast og giftig avfall. Det haster enormt å få ryddet opp i dette. Situasjonen mange steder er ille, men vi kan ikke tillate at det blir enda verre, External link

dagbladet Sunday, October 18, 2020 6:13:00 PM CEST

Karoline Andaur sier: – Det viser bare hvor enormt stort dette problemet er. Vi skal få på plass avfallshåndteringssystemer i en rekke byer og lokalsamfunn som skal hindre at plasten kommer ut i elver og i havet. Vi skal gå foran med kunnskap og kompetansen for å vise hvordan de selv kan gjøre jobben og skalerer opp prosjektene, External link

dagbladet Sunday, October 18, 2020 6:13:00 PM CEST

Karoline Andaur sier: – Globalt ser vi at det bare er rundt fem prosent av plasten som kommer opp til overflaten i havet. De resterende 95 prosentene blir i vannet eller legger seg på havbunnen. Det vi ser er bare toppen av plastfjellet. Mye av det samme er nok situasjonene i Norge. I all den tid vi ikke klarer å rydde havbunnene, må vi stoppe plasten før den rekker å komme ut i havet, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – I snitt får hvert menneske på jorda i seg 5 gram mikroplast i uka. Det tilsvarer at vi spiser ett kredittkort i uka. Plasten får vi i oss blant annet gjennom drikkevannet, salt og maten vi spiser. Vi vet ikke konkret hva det gjør med oss, men forskerne jobber med å finne svart på dette, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Vi skal for første gang ikke banke på 2 millioner dører på søndag, men samle inn pengene digitalt. Normalt kalles aksjonen for Norges største dugnad, men covid-19 situasjonen er den aller største dugnaden – tvaksjonenen er den nest største dugnaden i annerledesåret 2020, External link

dagbladet Sunday, October 18, 2020 6:13:00 PM CEST

Karoline Andaur sier: – Vi trenger en nasjonal plan for hvordan man skal jobbe opp mot plast og plastforurensing. Vi må bekjempe unødvendig plast, og vi må få bedre systemer for å resirkulere plasten. Selv om vi er en havnasjon, har vi ikke noen helhetlig plan for å håndtere plast, External link
