You can help save oceans when you use reusable shopping bags instead of plastic bags. Sure, it’s a small step — but it can make a big difference in the health of our oceans.
Have doubts? Then dive in to a firsthand account from Conservancy Caribbean program director Phil Kramer about why plastics are so damaging to the ocean. Or, read how the Conservancy’s Cara Byington had a crisis in the checkout line — after seeing the skeleton of a whale that died from eating plastic bags.
To help encourage others, share where you take reusable bags or where you’ve found your favorite tote. You can get a Nature Conservancy tote from Marketplace by Resolution, Inc. or Payless ShoeSource, both of which support The Nature Conservancy’s conservation work.
