You are what you eat. Well, if that’s the case, it may horrify you to know that you’re probably part plastic straw or cigarette butt or even part fleece sweater. On the bright side, at least you won’t need to buy sweaters anymore!

Plastic pollution has become so pervasive in California it affects nearly every river, stream, park, and street. Though most plastic waste is generated on land, most of it will eventually make its way to the ocean.

The World Economic Forum predicts that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish if we don’t act soon.

The first Earth Day – April 22, 1970 – marked the birth of the modern environmental movement. On this day, 20 million Americans participated in demonstrations across the country to advocate for a healthy and sustainable environment.

This historic event led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the passage of important legislation such as the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act.
