Place your mouse over the picture below to see where plastic has been collecting!
Look for recycling symbols on products you or your parents buy.
Purchase items in recyclable packaging whenever possible. Avoid products that use excessive packaging.
Find your very own re-usable water bottle, put your name on it, and carry it with you everyday. Encourage your family not to use bottled water if you have safe tap water. Think of all the energy wasted to make those bottles and transport them to your grocery store! Not to mention, those bottles do not decompose if thrown away!
Encourage your parents to carry a reusable shopping bag, and suggest they buy in bulk to minimize packaging waste.
Bicycle or walk to school rather than being driven by your parents (as long as Mom and Dad say it's safe).
