  • It's harmful to our planet

  • Plastic debris is choking wildlife

But how much do your kids know about the pervasive problem of plastic?

Are they aware of the effects of too much plastic on the planet? What about the impact of their own everyday choices? It’s important to help them see the big picture, too.
