We are overwhelmed by plastic pollution. This is the last call to save the planet.

Marine plastic pollution is now under the magnifying glass of a group of experts tasked with recommending a global response to the plastics crisis. Here’s what to expect at their meeting next week.

EcoWaste Coalition, an environmental protection advocacy group, held a peaceful rally in front of the South Korean embassy demanding to ship back to its country the 5,100 tons of garbage currently at the Mindanao International Container Terminal (MICT) in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental and a warehouse in Cagayan de Oro City.

Marine pollutants are impacting the health of our oceans, their inhabitants and those dependent on oceans for food, culture and their very survival. Everyday an ever-increasing cocktail of intentional and unintentional chemical releases, as well as an unrelenting tidal wave of wastes, particularly plastic waste, enters our waterways and the marine environment. This toxic threat endangers human health, marine life and the environment.

IPEN is pleased announce the release of the Ocean Pollutants Guide, as an initial step to raise awareness and bridge information gaps between ocean health, chemical safety, and emerging policy opportunities for action.

Ten years after the introduction of a strict policy to limit the use of plastics, local authorities are still looking for ways to dispose of the material safely, as Ma Chi reports.

A pair of disposable chopsticks, a plastic candy wrapper, a train ticket, orange peel, a ripped plastic bag that held the orange, a sticker tag, an apple pit, tissues...

IPEN Participating Organization, Environment and Social Development Organization (ESDO), celebrated Earth Day this year with a campaign to end plastic pollution.
