Our plastic problem is bigger than you think. About 11 million tons of plastic enters the ocean every year, and as the fifth largest economy in the world, California is a big part of the problem. But plastic isn’t just in the ocean, it’s everywhere. It’s in our drinking water, it falls in our rain, and studies show that harmful plastic pollution disproportionately affects disadvantaged communities. No matter who you are, or where you live, plastic is in your body.
The Solution: Weather it’s joining great beach clean ups like @ibccleanups @surfrider & our own LIFE Days or dedicating your life to minimizing your own plastic use, a little goes a long way and together we can really make a difference. ✨🙏🏼🌎
