Chirping Update

Dear chirpers,
We can all be chirping birds---men, women and children.  The only thing required from a chirping bird is to reduce one’s plastic footprint and chirp or cheep to family and friends about the dangers of plastic to our society and our natural world.

“Hero of the Sea” Capt. Charles Moore once said that the only way to solve the problems of oceanic pollution is to prevent plastic from reaching the ocean in the first place.  It is through the efforts of Capt. Moore, founder of the Algalita Marine Research Institute and many other groups such as the Plastic Ocean Project, Plastic Pollution Coalition,  5 Gyres Institute, Manfred Albatross, Nature Drive, Two Hands Project, One More Generation,  Angela Sun, Chris Jordan, Beth Terry and many others, that there is hope for a cleaner  and healthier ocean. And we have now graduated from the goal of preventing plastic reaching the ocean to one of ZERO WASTE. ZERO WASTE means not using disposable plastic products at all.

We are delighted to inform you that the number of chirping birds ‘cheeping’ and ‘chittering’ about disposable plastic around the world has grown enormously. From Ireland to Australia, we continue to cheer for the organizations and individuals who are presently devoting their time and energy to bringing awareness to plastic in our seas.

We are not trying to raise money - only AWARENESS of this critical health and environmental problem --- one chirp, cheep or chitter at a time!
