Reducing our daily plastic use can do loads to eliminate the amount of plastic waste that ends up in our oceans.
According to the guardian; only 9% of all plastic in the U.S. is recycled, and just over 40% of all plastic used globally is used only once and then thrown out. Most of it ends up in the ocean, where it can have fatal consequences to sea life.
If you want to try to reduce your plastic, there's lots of ways you can do your part, many of which are cheap and easy. Small daily changes may not seem like the best way to make a difference, but collective small changes in the way we use plastic can help cut down the harmful waste polluting our ecosystems worldwide.

After some research, we've discovered that we’ve been misusing mouthwash and not polishing to our full potential. Guilty as charged.
