Refuse, Reuse & always Bring Your Own!
Spreading the Bring Your Own message everyday:
We have re-entered the Reusable Era. We no longer rely on single-use plastic bags, plastic produce bags, and disposable items like utensils and plates, and we never purchase single-use beverages that come in throwaway plastic bottles.
If you are not hip to the Bring Your Own lifestyle - the time to join the reusable revolution is now.
Simple, reusable products are the everyday solution to the plastic plague that is clogging our rivers, beaches and oceans at an alarming rate. Entire countries around the world, as well as cities and counties around the US, have passed their own bans on single-use plastic bags and styrofoam take-out containers.

But the proliferation of the disposable lifestyle still leaves behind a wake of trash and litter.
Before we had access to cheap, disposable plastics, people commonly used durable, reusable items such as glass jars and containers, cloth bags, and lunch boxes. Save Our Shores collects data during our beach and river cleanups which helps us determine the most common types of debris in our communities so that we can strategically promote reusable alternatives that replace these pesky items.
We believe litter prevention is the ultimate way to eliminate marine debris. And that starts with YOU.
Then remember, we are only removing a mere fraction of what's out there.
Every action has a reaction in our environment. The choices you make each day are up to YOU.
