Picking up garbage off the beach is a great way to take back what you've possibly unintentionally given our Lakes. These Great Lakes are littered with not only Garbage you can see but also micro plastics you can't see!
Did you Know ?
That Plastic is a toxic substance but because we do not officially classify it as one it is not handled as such. Plastic never decomposes! It breaks down into tiny micro plastics that litter our waters. These micro plastics end up in our brewed beers, our drinking water and even our food. Especially our seafood as fish and other marine animals mistake plastic for food.
Did You Know?
Marine animals & birds quite literally starve to death because their stomachs are full of plastic and they do not have the ability to digest this toxic substance.
Did You Know?
If we continue on the path we are taking now in 2050 the Ocean and Lakes will have more plastics than fish!
Gloomy huh ...?! Feel like maybe we've gone too far ?? No turning Back?
WE DON'T THINK SO!!
Did You Know ?
Water makes up 50-75% of our human bodies!! Do you want 50-75% of our bodies to be plastic?..Hmmm.. How would that work?
Also there's hope because of organizations like the ones we work with and people & ideas like this :
The Sea Bin - Is a suction bin that literally sucks garbage and pollution right out of the water and is expected to be available to THE PUBLIC for purchase THIS YEAR!!!
The Ocean Cleanup - An organization that has raised over 31.5 million dollars towards an invention of V shape cleaning devise that floats across the Ocean cleaning up debris.
DON'T YOU WANT THIS FOR OUR LAKES!
OUR LARGEST ABOVE GROUND FRESHWATER RESOURCE IN THE WORLD!!
