Be The Solution
The majority of plastic pollution entering our ocean comes from individual consumer plastic items rather than from industrial plastics. There are many simple things we each can do to reduce the amount of plastic that makes its way to the ocean.
Choose not to use plastic straws or stirrers next time you order a drink at a restaurant.
Buy yourself a re-usable water bottle so you don’t need to buy your water in a plastic bottle.
Consider washing your polyfleece clothes less often, to prevent microfibers from entering the wastewater.
Bring your own shopping bags to the grocery store and take-out container to the restaurant.
Cover your recycling and trash bins so the wind and animals can’t get at the contents.
Encourage your family and friends to do the same!
