    It is time for everyone to advocate on environmental issues whether they are plastics related or otherwise. Speaking up and voicing your concerns in person, by email, through social media or by phone is important in helping change the culture to one where people think about how their actions will affect the environment. Positive feedback for people and places that have already adapted to a more friendly environmental approach is also important in reinforcing the culture.
