If you like going to the beach, I’ve got news for you! The ocean is dying and it’s our fault. We use plastic literally everyday. We throw it away and don’t even think twice about the consequences of our actions. Where does that trash go? The ocean. 

Holton has been using tons of plastic recently, specifically plastic cups, because students can’t use the water fountains because of the ongoing pandemic. These cups are rarely recycled or reused by students and end up it the trash. Typically, the trash lands in landfills, or worse, the ocean. The ocean is becoming Earth’s garbage can and because of all the plastic in the water, animals like dolphin, fish, and turtles are taking the negative effects of human problems. What happened to save the turtles? Holton can do more and stop using plastic products and end their contribution to the death of the ocean. 

Not only is plastic a huge issue, but the production of paper. Paper production requires the cutting down of trees, and lots of CO2. The cutting down of trees destroys the habitat of hundreds of animals. So many of these animals have been pushed to endangerment. The CO2 causes the acidity level in the ocean to go up more and more, killing coral, the habitat of many sea creatures. Right now, with all our technological advancements and the fact that we have to work from home, paper isn’t as necessary as it used to be, so why do we still use it?

Our actions are killing everything around us. We can do more, so why don’t we?

Get Holton to end the use of plastic and paper!
