This year there was a push on the Global Plastics Treaty > https://action.earthday.org/global-plastics-treaty 

Some of the Treaty Goals include:

You’re the Reason Our World is Warming, Vyvienne Long

> Song You’re The Reason The World Is Warmin’

A green take on the 70’s song first released by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty called ‘You’re the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly’.

Vyvienne Long accompanied by Fiachna Ó Braonáin poke fun at each other for all the reasons they are contributing to climate crisis.

Long says she wanted to keep the lighthearted nature of the dong in a bid to reach audiences with the important message that more needs to be done at home to lower our collective carbon footprint.

Hear all about the process on this weeks Ours to Protect with Donna-Marie Doherty.
