Plastic Awareness Coalition
Did you know that over 1-million birds and over 100,000 marine animals die each year from ingesting plastic. Sea Turtles and Sea Birds often mistake plastic bags floating in the oceans and on the beaches as jellyfish and end up dying from eating them. When we learned these facts and many more, we decided to launch our “Plastic Awareness Coalition”.

We learned that the number one pollutant item in our oceans was plastic, and that plastic accounts for the death of over 1-million birds and over 100,000 marine animals including Sea Turtles, Seals and fish.
