DAILY ACTIONS

Oceans

Say No to Plastic Straws

An estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When marine wildlife ingest plastic, they have a 50% mortality rate. By asking for no straw when placing a drink order, I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) of out of the ocean each day.

Plastic bags can be mistaken for food by many wild animals. If at all possible, I will not accept any disposable bags when making purchases, including produce bags.

    I am very excited to see how much of a difference we can all make at home now that we are social distancing. A lot of times I make choices based on convenience and now that is not as big of an option. I go out when I absolutely have to so I am being more mindful of what I’m doing and how!
