RETHINK Single-Use Plastics
Plastic never truly biodegrades; instead it photodegrades, or breaks up into smaller pieces, never leaving our environment. Pacific Whale Foundation research shows 70-90% of all debris found on and around Maui is plastic. Single-use plastics are the biggest contributor to this challenge, as they are thrown away after only one use.
We all contribute to this problem, so every one of us can make a difference. Make a pledge today to reduce your use of single-use plastics.
I PLEDGE TO DECREASE MY USE OF AND PURCHASE ALTERNATIVES TO SINGLE-USE PLASTIC PRODUCTS
As part of this yearlong conservation campaign, Pacific Whale Foundation is sharing weekly tips on our Facebook and Instagram pages, stories on our Blog, offering free “Plastic Pollution Solutions” classes to middle and high school classrooms, and more. We are also fundraising for Research (marine debris action planning), Education (keiki camps and workshops) and Conservation (beach cleanups and community events) programming that will inspire us all to RETHINK our choices regarding single-use plastics.
