What started off as a local partnership between Georgia state senators and a teenage environmental activist, Plastic Pollution Awareness Day has developed into a worldwide movement to further raise awareness surrounding plastic pollution and its toxic effect on the environment.

Join millions across the globe for Plastic Pollution Awareness Day on February 15 with these tips to reduce your plastic footprint:

  • Reduce consumption of single-use plastic products (i.e. straws, fast-food containers, cutlery)
  • Use reusable bags for grocery shopping
  • Bring your own reusable beverage container on your next coffee run
