7GA Personal Climate Action Center Action of the Week!
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
Each week we provide one action item for you to take to reduce your carbon emissions. Along with this weekly tip you will find over 80 actions on the Personal Climate Action Center website, where you can sign up and pledge to TAKE ACTION!
Week 25: Action of the Week
Don't buy bottled water if your tap water is safe to drink - and buy a non-toxic reusable water bottle if you don't already have one.
Luckily in the past 15 years or so, reusable water bottles have become a new trend, but perhaps we can reassess how good we are at using those reusable water bottles. Just because people have one, doesn’t mean people have stopped buying plastic water bottles. After all we’re dumping 10 million tons of plastic in our oceans annually.
An additional way to take action against plastic pollution by is to encourage your congressional representative to support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act of 2021. The Act builds on successful statewide laws across the U.S. and outlines practical plastic reduction strategies to realize a healthier, more sustainable, and more equitable future. The federal bill, which is sponsored by Sen. Jeff Merkley (OR) and Rep. Alan Lowenthal (CA), represents the most comprehensive set of policy solutions to the plastic pollution crisis ever introduced in Congress. You can take action and support the act by contacting your representative – just click here!
