Plastic pollution fouls our Preserve, community, and eventually, the world’s oceans. Its slowly increasing effects are being felt by life of all sizes and types.
Consumers can make a big dent in plastic pollution by finding new ways to avoid plastic. In this space readers can share how they are part of the plastic pollution solution. Here are some starter ideas below. These solutions won’t eliminate plastic pollution but every time you refuse plastic you are taking a step toward the solution.
New Water Station at the Nature Center - The partnership between the Friends of Madrona Marsh and the City of Torrance has resulted in a new water station at the Nature Center. This will allow visitors to refill their water bottles and contribute to another plastic pollution solution. The Friends purchased the water station and the City handled the installation. Morgan Griffin, City staff pictured with the new water station, was very helpful in securing the installation.
Please send us an email and share your ideas. All viable ideas will be posted here. The best idea of the month wins a prize plus respect and honor for making a dent in plastic pollution.
