    We all know it: We need to curb the waste rather than continually put more on the curb. If there is one thing we should be striving to do, that’s creating less garbage, and plastic is the place to start.

      People need to know the truth about plastic bags. Buy natural, reusable bags for friends and family members. Encourage local independent businesses to trash the plastic. Talk to your neighborhood about plastic bag litter and talk to your state governor about introducing a ban on plastic bags in the city or the state. Any small difference you make to halting plastic bag use will make a huge difference to the lives of countless species of animals across the world

These birds come to nest on the isolated Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, and they forage for hundreds of miles out to sea in search of food for their offspring.

All the plastic found in the birds on Midway Atoll is brought to the island by albatross parents who fed them to their young"
