Looking for an eco-friendly New Years Resolution? Decrease your Plastic Use.
National Geographic and 60 minutes are the most recent large organizations using their notoriety to educate the public on the increasing problems due to plastic use. The largest culprit? Single use plastic.
Ways you can decrease plastic use:
- Skip the straw!
- BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag of course!)
- Refuse to buy products with excessive packaging
- Buy and use reusable water bottles and travel mugs
- Pack your lunch with reusable containers
- Bring your own containers for restaurant left overs
Every time you choose to use less plastic and teach your students to use less plastic, you make a difference!
60 minutes recently aired a 23 minute segment highlighting the effects of plastics in the ocean and describing why reducing and refusing is a much better solution than recycling. Missed the original airing? Click above to see "Plastic Plague"
