We have been talking a lot about the problem of plastic pollution, especially in our oceans. We watched a video called The Plastic Tide (see below), and then brainstormed ways to cut down on single-use plastics. These are plastics that are only used once and then discarded. Here are some of our ideas:

  • bring snacks to school in reusable containers rather than baggies
  • bring water to school in reusable bottles rather than single-use plastic bottles
  • bring reusable utensils in our lunch boxes rather than disposable ones
  • bring cloth bags to the store to cut down on plastic bags
