National Geographic is supporting choosing the PLANET over Plastic, which is what the choice should always be. But the images they show, and the numbers don’t add up to that choice. It seems people, as a whole, are choosing PLASTIC!??? Because IT certainly is taking over MAMA EARTH’S OCEANS & LANDS, and this is having a tremendous impact on the lives of many.
Every LIFE in our Eco-system is at risk w/ the take over of PLASTIC! The photos shown seem unbelievable, but they are the #RealDeal ! PLASTIC seems to be one of MAMA EARTH’S BIGGEST ENEMIES! The reason is how we use single use PLASTICS all the time w/ no regard to what they are doing to the WORLD in which we all LIVE.
Let’s be a FRIEND to MAMA EARTH! TAKE THE PLEDGE to STOP w/ the single use PLASTICS! It’s one of the MOST IMPORTANT #1THINGs you can do!
Here are a few #’s you can cut down and do #1THING about:
- A TRILLION PLASTIC BAGS are used every year! – Always have a REUSABLE BAG handy when shopping.
- Nearly a MILLION PLASTIC BEVERAGE BOTTLES are sold EVERY MINUTE! – GO REFILLABLE! Have your own REUSABLE BOTTLE!
- Americans toss MILLIONS OF PLASTIC STRAWS a day! – SAY NO TO STRAWS! Tell your server, when you’re out, you’ll PASS ON THE STRAW w/ your drink!
- 9 MILLION TONS OF PLASTIC WASTE ends up in the OCEAN each year! – END LITTERING! PROPERLY DISPOSE OF TRASH! PICK UP LITTER when you can!
TAKE THE PLEDGE TODAY!
