Plastic bottles can take more than 450 years to decompose. Other plastic items can take up to 1,000 years to breakdown. As more and more plastics enter our environment daily through single use plastic items, the problem has become overwhelming. With a problem of this magnitude, what can we do to help?

Each and every one of us has the power to make positive change by taking a few simple steps: reduce plastic use, recycle, and cleanup litter.
