At first glance this looks like an ordinary portrait of a wild Snowy Owl. But look a little closer and you will notice something in this picture that does not belong there -- a plastic cup sits on the sand right behind this majestic bird.
Although the beach was deserted in the winter it is now probably full of visitors again -- with it, more trash and plastic will likely end up polluting the beach and the ocean. A few months ago I shared here my enthusiasm of seeing my first ever Snowy Owl, now I share a bit of the frustration I felt seeing so much trash at the beach -- most of the trash there was plastic (especially single-use plastic)! We must change this.
Today, National Geographic launched a multi-year initiative to tackle this problem.
The goal is to considerably reduce the use of single-use plastic. Learn what we can do to make a difference athttp://natgeo.com/planetorplastic
