Help End Plastic Pollution! Today is Earth Day, but as you go about your daily life, think about a few facts (from www.earthday.org) ... ONE MILLION plastic bottles are bought EVERY MINUTE around the world — and that number will top half a TRILLION by 2021. Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled. And there is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way!
What can you do to help end plastic pollution today and every day?

A soul generated by love.” NPS photos
