Local research at The Citadel shows just how dangerous a problem plastic is for our region. More than 7 tons are breaking down into micro-plastics within the waters of the Charleston Harbor at any given time. These micro-plastics will enter the food chains of marine critters and eventually make their way up into human food chains. It is a problem that is not just causing a harmful impact to the natural world, but people as well. Read more about this study in the Post & Courier.
You can help by recycling plastic bags at most grocery stores, making them reuseable bin liners for small trash cans, using them to clean up after your pet (dog bags/line cat litter boxes), tying them around your knees to keep clean while gardening, bringing your own bags to the store, and more!
