Ending Plastic Pollution

The Earth Day Network began asking members which topic to focus on for Earth Day this year. If you sign up and become part of their network you can help and vote what topic they choose for next year. This year they asked us and all their members which topic to focus on among three: Plastics, Biodiversity vs. Extinction, and Extreme Weather. Plastic was chosen as the theme, and the Earth Day Network's goal is to inspire others around the planet to end Plastic Pollution.
