A poem by Felipe Alexandre de Lima

Synthetic material

The packaging of our morning cereal

Quite useful but also causing a pollution disaster

Let us think about circular solutions hereinafter

What about refusing single-use plastic?

Removing plastic waste from the environment is fantastic

Improving packaging design, that is divine

Plastic could be reused, all the time

Innovative solutions are needed

Plastic pollution must be defeated

Oceans, forests, all ecosystems

Plastic pollution threatens all organisms

Rethinking plastic is key

Production and consumption, plastic-free

Circular economy is the guarantee

To change the plastic reality
