STUNNING!

      URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Baby Sea turtles could be CHOKING TO DEATH on plastic right now! Take action! Plastic waste is overtaking our oceans. At the current rate, scientists estimate there will be MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH by 2050. That means a higher chance for turtles to mistake floating plastic bags for tasty jellyfish — a potentially deadly error. Even if they manage to avoid choking, ingesting plastic can cause malnutrition, chemical contamination, or damaged internal organs.  PLASTIC NEVER DISAPPEARS. Once an animal dies and decomposes, the plastic it consumed is released back into the ocean for its next victim. Over time, it breaks down into microplastics that infect the water we drink, the food we eat, and even the air we breathe. But there’s good news: Congress could act to STOP the plastics crisis and you can help convince them! william, will you defend our oceans from plastic and send a message to your representative by 11:59pm TONIGHT? >> SIGN THE PETITION The harm plastics cause begins before these toxic products make it to the ocean — or even onto store shelves. Giant plastic production facilities spew pollution into nearby communities — largely communities of color. The people who live in those communities face increased risk of cancer, respiratory diseases, and other illnesses.  Meanwhile, plastic corporations increase production by 9% every year. We need to address the plastic crisis TODAY before it gets out of control. If just 1 of every 5 people reading this email take action by TONIGHT, we can push Congress to rein in the PLASTIC CRISIS before it’s too late. SIGN THE PETITION Standing with you,
