Today is Earth Day. We can all help save the oceans by using reusable shopping bags instead of plastic shopping bags. Sure, its a small step - but it can make a big difference in the health of our oceans. Last week the gray whale that floated up onto the shore of western Washington had a stomach full of garbage.
Have doubts? Then dive in to a firsthand account from Conservatory Caribbean program director, Phil Kramer, about why plastics are so damaging to the ocean. Or, read how the Conservatory's Cara Byington had a crisis in the checkout line - after seeing the skeleton of a whale that died from eating plastics bags.
Such a simple thing.
