This is what they found:
The model is estimating a staggering 374,189,513 pieces of plastic wash out of the Bay every year with plastic wrappers and small pieces of plastic film making up the most common forms of plastic pollution. We all need to take action to reverse this trend.
What can you do to help:
- Stop using plastic bags, (use reusable bags),
- Stop using plastic straws, use paper straws or forego a straw,
- Stop using disposable coffee cups with the plastic lids, use a Keep cup.
- Please don’t let any helium balloons loose anywhere in the outdoors. They all come down and are very dangerous to wildlife.
