REDUCE YOUR USE
A 14-DAY PLASTICS CHALLENGE
HOW IT WORKS
The challenge is pretty simple. Over the course of two weeks, count how many times you:
- Don’t take a plastic straw and drink directly from the cup.
- Fill up and reuse your water bottle.
- Choose reusable shopping bags.
Why not give it a shot? You'll be doing a great thing for the ocean. By one estimate, over five trillion pieces of plastic are afloat in our seas. All that garbage is a serious problem for wildlife. Animals, like sea turtles, birds, and fish, may get tangled in it or mistake it for food. It can even impact people, as the chemicals from plastics travel up the food chain.
But you can do something about it.
We'll check in at the end of the challenge to see how it’s going and collect your results. That way we can keep a running tally of how much plastic we’ve saved.
Thank you for signing up for the 14-day plastics challenge!
