If you are still looking for an idea.
More info on the threat of plastics on coral reefs.
When plastic debris is introduced to a coral reef system, the likelihood of coral disease increases from 4 - 89% – a 20-fold change. Check out this paper: “Plastic waste associated with disease on coral reefs,” recently published by Science.
So when you travel to places with poor refuse practices (like Latin America and the Caribbean) bring back what ever plastic you bring down with you -- reuse or recycle it here.
More ridiculous uses of plastic and synthetic packaging. Why not think twice when purchasing. (Organic eggs in plastic is one of my pet peeves.)
Releasing balloons - intentionally or by accident - creates big problems for the environment.
"It's outrageous and laughable that Nestlé is claiming that its water bottling is sustainable," says Maude Barlow, Honorary Chairperson of the Council of Canadi...ans. "Nestlé is not only a member but also a founding partner of the Alliance for Water Stewardship, which Nestlé is seeking 'certification' from. Certifying Nestle makes the whole AWS scheme essentially meaningless. I think communities around the world will see right through Nestlé's blue-washing."
Nat'l Parks reverse ban on bottled water sales.

Another single use plastic bottle. Marketed to kids (and parents) to start a life time of thoughtless plastic use. Advertised on by Safeway. Please ask them not to purchase this wasteful product.
I sort of wish this video included a single use plastic water bottle....But it's cute none the less.
Every year 10 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean. If we don't change our behaviour we might end up with more plastic than fish in the ocean.

The Animation Workshop has produced this fantastic video. You should see this man as a symbol of consumers as well as industry, makers and politicians
Plastic wrap is something else we could think twice about before using. Anyone try this substitute? https://www.facebook.com/Inhabitat/posts/10154298086082056
This Eco Food Wrap Is Perfect For People Who Love The Environment
This could be a significant boon for reducing the impacts of plastic pollution in the ocean. Need something like this for drinking water bottles. Maybe one day.
