End plastic pollution now!

End plastic pollution now!
Did you know that we humans throw away 100 *million* plastic water bottles every - single - day?! Our thoughtlessness is choking our magnificent big blue, and majestic whales.

And it’s totally needless -- massive corporations are making billions selling water that’s no different than what most of us get from our kitchen sinks!

Right now, more than half of plastic pollution comes from five countries - the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Vietnam and Thailand. Indonesia’s just committed to reduce marine litter by 70%. Now the others are under pressure to act before a global oceans summit in days. If millions of us call for bans, we could kickstart a total phase-out of plastics!
