How You can Help

  1. Limit your use of disposable plastics, like plastic bags and water bottles.
  2. Carry your own reusable shopping bag and/or water bottle.
  3. Look for products made from recycled materials that have little or no packaging, or packaging that is recyclable.
  4. Try to avoid Styrofoam products—bring your own mug to the coffee shop, and a container for leftovers when you eat out.
  5. Know which plastics can be recycled in your city and recycle!
  6. Make sure all non-recyclable plastics are securely disposed of.
  7. Pick up trash on the street and put it in a trash can.
