Over 500 million plastic straws are used per day in the United States alone. That’s enough to wrap around the earth 2.5 times…per day!
Plastic never truly goes away, even if it is recycled, so it becomes stuck in our environment forever.
We all contribute to this problem, meaning we can all make a difference by choosing to reduce or reuse our single use plastic usage.
Donate $75 to support our conservation efforts and receive a bamboo set of reusable utensils and a straw! Your utensils are housed in a carrying case made from recycled plastic bottles.
Donate $135 and receive two sets – one for you and one to share!
Our thoughts go out to all that are being impacted by COVID-19. With a team dedicated to our response to this pandemic, we are meeting regularly to ensure the continuation of programs and services that allow our mission work to continue.
Pacific Whale Foundation’s leadership team is closely monitoring updates from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies, public health officials and government agencies on an ongoing basis.
The role that our organization plays in keeping people connected for the sake of the environment is incredibly important in times like these. If we all take the proper precautions and continue to treat each other with kindness and care, we’ll get through this together.
