They're dying in a sea of plastic.
Take a stand to clean up the ocean.

Every year, 28-billion pounds of plastic ends up in our ocean. Seals get caught in discarded fishing gear and die trying to free themselves. Dolphins mistake plastic bags for their next meal and die eating them. Fish ingest deflated balloons and choke to death. But it doesn’t need to be this way. If we take action now, we can reduce plastic in the ocean by 45 per cent, saving ocean life, making our ocean cleaner and our earth healthier.
