What can you do?

  • Reduce, reuse, RECYCLE! It’s your responsibility (please excuse the lecture, but come on)!
  • Buy items that are minimally packaged.
  • Eliminate bottled water from your vocabulary — in the US we toss out enough disposable water bottles to circle the equator every 2.9 days and this number is increasing. Only 15% or less is actually recycled! Worried about your tap water? Get it tested!
  • Say no to plastic retail bags. And paper is not the better option. Bring your own bag!
  • Sign the STOP Plastic Bags global petition.
  • Share this with everyone you know.
