Plastic pollution kills!

Bottle caps litter our communities and contribute to the ever increasing plastic pollution in our inland streams and rivers, parks, beaches and ocean waters.

Bottle caps kill seabirds and other marine life either through ingestion that causes starvation or injury, when sharp edges of degraded plastic puncture internal organs. The Laysan Albatross is a poster child for this problem – but 80% of all seabird species are impacted.

Recyclers want the plastic bottle caps attached to the bottles and the technology already exists to leash the lids.

We call upon Coke and Pepsi to redesign your bottles - leash the lid - and reduce harm to the albatross and the rest of our ocean eco-system.
