Why did I Write the Manifesto?

First we need to look at a few basic definitions:

Plastic: A material consisting of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic, organic compounds that are malleable and can be moulded into many objects.

Free: 1. Not imprisoned or confined 2. Not controlled by obligation or the will of another. 3.Not controlled by another country or political power; independent 4. Governed by consent and possessing or granting civil liberties. 5. Not subject to arbitrary interference by a government. 6. Not enslaved. 7. Not affected or restricted by a given condition or circumstance 8. Not subject to a given condition; exempt. 9. Not bound by convention or the rules of form. 10. Publicly supported. 11. Unobstructed; clear

Manifesto: A published declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government.

I wrote the manifesto once I became aware that micro-plastics have been found in the oceans, the rivers, the land, the air, the rain and living creatures. The manifesto provides a framework on how individuals can free themselves as much as possible from plastics, synthetics and semi-synthetics. I encourage people to embrace this manifesto in order to halt the harm to the planet on an individual by individual basis as well as providing examples to others so they might join us on a journey from unwitting, plastic-pollution makers to knowing and progressive plastic-pollution free creators. I aim to make an informative and helpful source of information and guidance to help individuals move away from total, plastic dependence and do something to end this ongoing production of further micro plastics.
