The Great Tap Water Challenge
Plastic waste in the oceans, lakes and on land effects biodiversity globally. For instance; “44 percent of all seabird species, 22 percent of cetaceans, all sea turtle species and a growing list of fish species have been documented with plastic in or around their bodies”(Hasselberger, 2014, p.1).
Plastic use and plastic waste are out of control. How can we help? Join The Great Tap Water Challenge. Bring a mug to work, a reusable bottle with you in the car, subway, everywhere. If you already have a great reusable habit, share it on Conservation Theater’s website. Try something else like no plastic bags or no micro-beads. Plastic waste is something we can all help reduce no matter our age. Kids can bring their lunches in paper or canvas bags. They can use reusable water bottles too! The average cost of a bottle of water in the Untied States is $1.75. If you use one bottle a day that is $638.75 dollars a year. Use a reusable bottle for a year and spend that $638.75 on an eco-friendly trip to celebrate all the money and species you saved!
