More Ocean, Less Plastic
Take The Pledge
I pledge to protect our ocean and change my attitude towards single-use plastics.
For one year, I will say ‘No’ to single-use plastic shopping bags, plastic water bottles, plastic straws and styrofoam cups whenever I can. If I end up getting an item, whether by forgetfulness or by being in a situation where it was unavoidable, I will keep it until the end of the year.
EcoSattvas DownEast has been engaged in a multi-year campaign to eliminate these single use plastics: plastic water bottles, shopping bags, straws and styrofoam cups, as part of our More Ocean, Less Plastic initiative. Most of this plastic breaks down into tiny pieces invisible to the naked eye, which are consumed by marine wildlife and contaminate the food we eat. These microplastics pose a serious risk to ocean and human health, from the Pacific coast to the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Maine and the Bay of Fundy.
