Single use plastic is one of the biggest threats to our oceans and is expected to outweigh all marine life by the year 2050. The good news, you can do something about it today. On a personal level, say no to plastics bags, straws and purchase items that limit the amount of plastic. On a larger scale, email, call or write your representatives and explain to them the ongoing issue and tell them that a change needs to be made.
