"Plastic has become a pandemic threat with its impact upon human health still unknown, but with devastating environmental consequences to our oceans and marine life," said Daniel Birnbaum. "In this campaign, we wanted to give a voice to marine animals and, together with them, encourage people and corporations to switch from single-use plastic to reusable packaging."

A tear of sorrow
Tears of hope
An ocean of regret
I never meant to hurt you so
It is not over yet
We can still make this right again
We can still save ourselves
Oceans are the springs of life
They're crying S.O.S
Now it is the time for a change it's in our hands Now it is the time for a change it's in our hands
Will piles of trash and poisoned seas
be our legacy?
Our kids deserve much more than that
A world - pollution free
We can still make this right again
We can still save ourselves
Oceans are the springs of life
They're crying S.O.S
Now it is the time for a change it's in our hands Now it is the time for a change it's in our hands

"I have a great love for our oceans and marine life and was happy to lend my voice and support to this campaign," commented Sir Rod Stewart. "If it helps raise awareness and effect simple changes like switching to reusable bottles then I'm honored to be a part of it."

The video has been launched in tandem with the website www.FightPlastic.com , where SodaStream encourages consumers to take a stand against single-use plastic.

"While one reusable SodaStream bottle can save thousands of single-use plastic bottles, the world needs to change more than just its drinking habits to combat the global pollution hazard. We should all do our best to shift away from single-use plastic including straws, cups, bags and bottles," continued Birnbaum. "SodaStream hopes that this campaign will encourage many to make the change. It's in our hands."
