Plastic are having a devastating impact on worldwide wildlife, especially on our oceans. Below is a powerful video promoting the ‚Äúplastic pledge‚ÄĚ at Save My Oceans.

Some of the facts:

* Every hour, Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles;

* Every week, around the world we go through 10 billion plastic bags;

* Every year, we create enough plastic film to shrink wrap the state of Texas;

* Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today!

Solutions? Seek alternatives to plastics. Use your own bottle. Use your own reusable bags. Recycle whenever possible.

    Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to righteousness]. [Qur’an 30:41]
