My story

[p]Hello and thank you for visiting my fundraising page! [/p][p]In the past year I've been making changes to live a more sustainable life, and to reduce my use of single-use plastics. The more I learn, the more my passion for change drives me forward. Why should you care about plastic pollution? [/p][p]330 million tonnes of plastic is produced every year [/p][p]12.7 million tonnes of plastic entering the ocean every year [/p][p]90 percent of seabird have plastic in their stomach [/p][p]100,00 marine animals killed every year from plastic debris [/p][p]In a bid to raise awareness I will be taking part in #plasticfreejuly, where I will abstain from using single-use plastics. I will also be challenging myself further, by running a half marathon every week! I really hope this will inspire others to make simple changes. I'm fundraising for Surfers Against Sewage who are a Cornwall based charity, working to protect our oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife. [/p][p]The world we live in is such a beautiful place, and I hope for it to stay this way for future generations. But change must happen. Any money you can spare helps facilitate change, and your awareness is a huge step in a positive direction. You can keep updated with my progress on [url=https://www.instagram.com/oliviafurner/?hl=en]Instagram[/url]. [/p][p]Thank you ever so much for your time![/p][p]Olivia [/p][p]xx [/p]
