One action people can take in our ever so connected world today is to make a change in your own life (ex: pledge to not use plastic bags when shopping), and then demonstrate this change to your social network. When people see others making a change to help conserve the environment, they are more likely to make a change themselves!
I will walk on the beach and pick up all plastics trash! And for those who don't live by the ocean, recycle, re-use your straws, plastic bags, and reduce your footprint.
