What You Can Do to End Plastic Pollution

Reduce

Reduce your own plastic waste. Start by tracking how much you use — then you can take steps to reduce your use and waste.

Let’s be counted

Reuse

Bring your own reusable shopping and produce bags to markets, and avoid using single-use plastic bags.

Bring your own reusable coffee cup when going out to get beverages.

Like sipping through straws? Get a reusable stainless steel, glass, or bamboo one to use instead of wasteful plastic ones.

Instead of buying water in plastic bottles, invest in a water filter and reusable water bottle(s). Bonus: it’s cheaper in the long run.

Make your own reusable cloth bags from old t-shirts, using basic sewing skills (or no sewing at all).

Let’s be counted

Choose clothing and other personal items made from earth-friendly materials instead of microfibers and other synthetic fibers, which pollute our water. (Even more ways to green your style.)

Bring a reusable container to a restaurant with you when you expect to have leftovers.

Let’s be counted

Refuse

*Refuse straws: It’s as simple as adding, “No straw, please” when requesting beverages at restaurants or cafes.

Refuse beverage tops. (Are you really going to spill?)

Remove

Pick up trash in your neighborhood and when visiting parks and beaches.

Let’s be counted

Recycle

Recycle the plastics you use and no longer need.

Return single-use bags to grocery stores for them to recycle.
