Ocean Runner Nichole is always finding discarded plastic bags as she runs along the beach. These types of bags can be deadly when ingested by marine animals. A great way to keep these bags off the beach and out of the water is to always take reusable tote bags with you for shopping, beach picnics, etc. Buy a few sturdy bags and coolers of different sizes and keep them in your car or by your door so they’re always handy. It’s an easy habit to adopt, and can make a critical difference for our environment!
