WE’VE DONE IT!!!
We’ve reached our 100,000 goal (and a bit more!)! It’s taken us 5 years to get here, but we’re definitely not stopping.
We chose our 100,000 pieces as our goal all those years ago because it’s a number that really stuck out to us – the number of sea mammals allegedly killed by plastic in the oceans every year. That means in the time it’s taken us to pick up this total, at least half a million more sea animals will have been killed.
That’s why, even though it’s great to have reached our goal, it’s only the beginning of what needs to be done. We’re going to continue our collecting, but more importantly continue raising education and encouraging a reduction in the use of plastic in the first place.
