Even if you never meet one…or you live in a desert or atop a mountain…
1) Find alternatives to balloons. Deflated, they are trash that can injure & kill sea and land animals, and birds. Our national reserves of helium are running dangerously low. This precious gas is expensive to produce and is vital to science, medicine, and industry. Visit www.balloonsblow.org for more info and fun alternatives to balloons.
2) Use the Blue Ocean Institute’s guide to Wild-caught seafood (and sushi) and its website for more info. http://blueocean.org/seafoods/
Use the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s guide for wild and farmed seafood. http://www.montereybayaquarium.org.
4) Refuse single-use plastic; join a beach cleanup; Catch that breezy plastic trash in your own neighborhood.
5) Education is key. Find your own best solutions and share them with others.
