Take the Pledge to Use Less Plastic
Change Begins Onshore. It Starts With You. Take the pledge to use less plastic every day.
Plastic lasts forever… our oceans are turning into plastic soup.
It doesn’t biodegrade and no naturally occurring organisms can break it down. Plastic photodegrades, which means that sunlight breaks it down into smaller and smaller pieces. Those small pieces drift in the ocean and are mistaken for food by fish and birds.
It is indisputable that plastic pollution is killing marine life through ingestion and entanglement in plastic marine litter.
Up to 80% of the plastic in our oceans comes from the land - us. Single-use is ocean abuse. So, make a pledge today to make these simple 5 changes, which will have a huge impact on our oceans health.
