The goal of the Unity Eco Team is to encourage you to reduce your use of single-use plastics. For example, a straw with our iced coffee, a plastic bag to carry our takeout, a wrapper on a candy bar, taken individually, each seems harmless. In fact, these modern conveniences are so ubiquitous—and so quickly thrown out—that they hardly register in our minds. Yet these single-use plastics come with a steep environmental price—one that we’ll be paying off for millennia. Our plastic addiction is having a devastating impact on our oceans, our wildlife, and our health. Learn more at the Natural Resources Defense Council.
So, take the challenge and start eliminating single-use plastics in your daily living.
