And why we should all be participating in beach clean ups…on our own, or through regularly scheduled clean up efforts by organizations like Save Our Shores (for Santa Cruz and Monterey County, California beaches).
It seems an insurmountable task, when we use plastics for….well… just about everything!
Unfortunately, we currently recover only about 5% of the plastics we produce, so we have to decrease — and better yet — eliminate as much plastics as we can from our daily activities.
We can do this!
I promise to:
Bring my own water bottle, mug, utensils and reusable bag.
Say ‘No Plastic Straw Please” when I dine out.
Buy what’s in the least amount of plastic packaging.
Pick up 5 pieces of plastic pollution I see littered whenever I’m out.
Engage family, businesses and co-workers to make this promise too.
