10 Things You Can Do to Save the Ocean

Posted by Trish Riley, August 12, 2010

All of these tips are wonderful, but this one’s my favorite because it is the key to having an impact on the entire planet and our future:

“3. Use Fewer Plastic Products

Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and kill tens of thousands of marine animals each year. To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in nondisposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible.”
