Show Your Love for Our Oceans

World Oceans Day started in 2002 with the help of The Ocean Project. In 2008, the United Nations officially named June 8th World Oceans Day. 

Our oceans generate most of the air we breath, they feed us, regulate our climate and clean the water we drink. As a global community we need to promote prevention of plastic pollution in our oceans.

  • We use over 3 trillion plastic bags every year worldwide: 3,000,000,000,000! And only 1% is recycled. 
  • Single-use plastic bags littering our environment kill over 100,000 marine animals each year.
  • Single use plastic bags take over 400 years to biodegrade! 

While some great steps have been taken to reduce the worlds plastic use there is still more that needs to be done.

How can you help:

1. Sign up for a local beach or park cleanup.

2. Take the Better Bag Challenge and ditch the plastic bags, our SnapBaskets and EcoBaskets are a superior substitute!

3. Invest in an eco-friendly stainless steel water bottle, like Klean Kanteen

Let's work together to make Healthy Oceans and a Healthy Planet.
