Keep Our Oceans Clean

                                  How We Can Prevent this from Happening

When Shopping

  • Bring your own reusable bags, baskets, and containers for shopping at stores.
  • Avoid plastic packaging.
  • Avoid buying bottled water; the caps aren't recyclable and their size and shape increase the chance that they will end up in the ocean.
  • Buy products with a little or truly recyclable packaging.

At Home

  • Use non-plastic utensils.
  • Use paper bags to throw trash. If you have to use plastic for throwing trash, make sure it's recyclable.
  • When a plastic item breaks, try to fix it instead of buying a new one.

In The Office

  • Replace plastic products with more sustainable ones.

In Your Community

  • Give away rather than throwing plastic products away.
  • Pick up plastics when you see it in streets and waterways.

These are just some examples you can do to prevent plastic getting in the ocean. If you think about it, there are a lot more things you can do. If you just try recycling plastics, you're already making a difference.
