Water

Say No to Plastic Straws

An estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When they ingest plastic, marine life has a 50% mortality rate. By asking for no straw when placing a drink order, I will keep 2 plastic straw(s) of out of the ocean each day.

    One of my goals was to not use plastic bags while shopping. I had one bag that I would take to the store and use. I accidently ripped it so I had to buy a new one. Well, now I am obsessed with bags and haven't used a plastic bag since. I even am starting to get my mom to take a bag.

    I choose to turn off my computer for when not in use for more than 2 hours and as a result I have started to do the same things for many other of my electronics! As an added bonus, my battery has been lasting a little bit longer.
