More than 8 million tons of plastic enter our waterways each year. And as you know, this affects not only the environment but also the creatures that live it.
Because of this staggering amount of plastic pollution, an organization called Aquarium Conservation Partnership (ACP) is partnering with 19 U.S. aquariums to reduce ocean and freshwater plastic pollution. Together, they are pledging to eliminate plastic waste such as plastic straws and carrier bags from their facilities.
See how one small choice makes a big difference. Start with using a reusable drink cup and see the impact you can make.
