Plastic pollution is among the most serious threats facing marine wildlife and the oceans they call home. A recent report found that 70% of marine litter is non-degradable plastic which is projected to increase threefold over the next ten years.
You can help by pledging to avoid single-use plastic! Plastic straws and other one-time use plastics are a major contributor to ocean pollution and can cause great harm to marine wildlife.
I commit to avoiding plastic straws, shopping bags, disposable utensils, beverage containers, and coffee capsules). By doing so, I will do my part to protect marine species by keeping plastic debris out of our oceans.
