Reduce waste

Why should I do this?

Our waste is ending up in the ocean in great floating masses of plastic. Plastic hampers digestion in animals, picks up and concentrates pollutants and leaches toxic chemicals into our environment.

How can I do this?

Consumers have a lot of power. When shopping consider choosing items with the least packaging and bring your own bag. Download the Strange Days on Planet Earth Smart Plastics Guide (English | Spanish) [PDF file] for tips on buying safe plastics.
