Born in Ireland, raised in Great Britain, lived in Los Angeles, he chose Hawaii as a place for his soul. And on the islands in the middle of the Pacific, the effects of global pollution are literally tangible. Every time he goes to the beach. Or take a bath. From the height of his status as a world film star, Pierce Brosnan he was convinced by the youngest of his 5 children, Paris Brosnan, the family activist, to use his popularity for good. Become a testimonial of the environment. The result was a commercial that warns against the indiscriminate use of plastic. Here it is above.
Pierce Brosnan’s appeal: plastic is forever
The slogan is stolen from diamonds. Plastic is also forever. But if the first, best friends of women, do not pollute, the petroleum derivatives do. “Plastic is forever … so it’s time to be smart in handling it,” say father and son. «We are facing a planetary crisis: climate change, air pollution, loss of biodiversity. Fossil fuel-based plastics contribute to all three environmental issues ”.
“Most single-use plastics are produced using fossil fuels (coal, oil or natural gas) and are not biodegradable. The future is bioplastics, which are biodegradable and often made from corn, sugar cane, hemp, and even plant-based oils. Most plastic is denser than seawater, which is why it sinks to the ocean floor, where it breaks down into tiny pieces known as microplastics. ‘ Which are eaten by fish. What do we eat. No animal does any good to eat plastic.
“Did you know that we breathe up to 7,000 microplastics every day?” Asks Pierce Brosnan in the video. “Or that 83 percent of tap water and 90 percent of bottled water contain plastic particles?” Echoes his son.
Pierce Brosnan has a special request for all of us
The commercial by Pierce and Paris Brosnan is produced in association with the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Convention. That is, three multilateral environmental agreements managed by the United Nations Environment Program that focus on protecting people and the environment from hazardous chemicals and waste.
The Basel Convention is the only international treaty that legally binds 189 countries to implement strict controls for the cross-border movement of plastics. The plastic waste amendments of the Basel Convention are a stepping stone towards the creation of a legally binding international agreement to end plastic pollution. For this reason, father and son ask everyone to support the work of these associations.
