Plastic are having a devastating impact on worldwide wildlife, especially on our oceans. Below is a powerful video promoting the “plastic pledge” at Save My Oceans.

Some of the facts:

* Every hour, Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles;

* Every week, around the world we go through 10 billion plastic bags;

* Every year, we create enough plastic film to shrink wrap the state of Texas;

* Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today!

Solutions? Seek alternatives to plastics. Use your own bottle. Use your own reusable bags. Recycle whenever possible.
