“Plastics are now one of the most common pollutants of ocean waters worldwide. Pushed by winds, tides and currents, plastic particles collect with other debris and merge into large swirling accumulation zones, known to oceanographers as gyres.”

  1. I make a conscious effort to pick up plastic I find in my yard or blowing around in front of my house. It’s almost lazy, but I figure I’m doing something to keep some plastic out of the ocean.
    Each of us should walk down our own street once a year with a bag and pick up all of the plastic we find. Just one bag. It would probably take 20 minutes to fill a shopping bag.

    1. That’s a great thing you do, if you start at home is already a big step to make it conscious. Lately I have been carrying a bag to put all the small plastics I find on the streets where I walk, I’m thinking in making it a challenge and posting it to whomever wants to join!

      1. Great idea. There are plank challenges, post a day challenges. Mark Zuckerburg has a run a mile a day challenge. Why not a pick up a piece of trash a day challenge for 30 days?
