I’m setting a bad example with my hat off and obvious sunburn lines but lemme correct that with some ocean love! Friday was #worldsoceans day, so here I am two days late with some easy ways that we can help reduce ocean pollution - because I love all things beach related and really, swimming with trash is NOT the lewk!
*More that 40% of plastic produced is used once then thrown out.
*79% of our plastic waste is NOT recycled - it accumulates in landfills or the environment (like the ocean).
*More than 5 trillion pieces of plastic are already floating in our oceans.
*Plastic kills millions of marine animals every year. By 2050, virtually every seabird species on the planet will be eating plastic.
WAYS WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE: *Reuse and recycle plastic products. Educate yourself on all the types of plastic your locality recycles - in the SF Bay Area they take so much! Including plastic bags!!
*Ditch plastic straws, opt for sustainable alternatives like paper, metal or reusable rubber, OR decline them all together!
*Skip styrofoam and plastic bags
*Prioritize products with minimal packaging and request paper padding instead of bubble wrap
