REFUSE Reduce Reuse Recycle

Dianna Cohen is a visual artist who works with plastic.

She became interested in the lifespan of plastic and actually traveled out to the great Pacific Garbage Patch. She found that, as massive and tragic as that toxic mess is, it's just the tip of the iceberg. It wouldn't even really make a difference if we cleaned it up. More is coming it's way every single day.

How about we add "Refuse" to the beginning of the "reduce, reuse, recycle" mantra?

This video will convince you, there is no way we can continue to use single use plastics. Period.
