PARTICIPATE AT HOME!

Plastic waste from single use containers is a huge issue facing our environment... 90% of the trash floating in our oceans is made from plastic. These last few months we have found ourselves using it more than ever. In the water, plastic waste breaks apart into small toxic pieces called microplastics. CLICK HERE to learn more about how CHNEP helps monitor microplastics in our area. 

 

The good news is, we all can be a part of the solution! You can do your own litter cleanup while taking a walk around your neighborhood or local park. Trash on the ground during our summer rainy season will likely be washed into our waterways in the next storm. You can also contribute to the global citizen science effort tracking litter and marine debris.
