Say No To Single Use Plastic
Be a part of the solution to the problem that is plastic pollution!
It is estimated that currently there is 150 million metric tons of plastic in the sea, tragically so much of this plastic floating in the oceans was single use, meaning that it was used once and then discarded. As you are likely aware this plastic will stick around for hundreds of years and as it breaks down it releases chemicals into the environment around it. Not to mention the threat to life, did you know that 1 million seabirds die each year due to plastic and over 100,000 marine mammals? Not to mention that studies has found that at least 52% of sea turtles have ingested plastic!
By eradicating unnecessary single use plastics such as bags, straws, cutlery, cups and bottles we can reduce the devastating amount of plastic that enters our oceans each year, currently estimated at over 8 million tons!
Sign The Petition
The incredible team over at Oceana has set up a petition to congress to get the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act brought in which would phase out certain single-use plastics and shift the burden of plastic waste to the companies producing it.
Head over to Sign The Petition if you want to see change on a federal level, with countries like Canada, France and the UK all bringing in laws prohibiting the sale of certain single use plastics it's time for the USA to take action!
