Earth Day 2018 is calling for everyone to help accelerate actions that can bring an end to plastic pollution.

There are great examples of companies, individuals, governments and organisations committing to meaningful actions, and those stories feature regularly on these pages. But today is about all of us, so we recommend listening to a message from Dr Jane Goodall, legendary conservationist and activist – who also helped create Google’s Earth Day Doodle – on what we can do to ‘have a positive impact on our planet’.
