If we don’t act now, by 2050 plastics in the ocean will outweigh the fish. One small change can have a big impact: #stopsucking on plastic straws.

The U.S. uses 500 Million Plastic Straws Every Day
Many of those plastic straws end up in our oceans, polluting the water and harming sea life.
If we don’t act now, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
One small change can have a big impact: #StopSucking on single-use plastic straws.
2017 is the year to create a global movement with measurable impact – YOU can be a part of the change. Accept our challenge to #StopSucking and then challenge your favorite restaurant, bar, coffee shop or venue to join the movement.
A campaign from The Lonely Whale Foundation
The Lonely Whale Foundation is dedicated to bringing people closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife.
Born out of the full length documentary, 52: The Search for the Loneliest Whale, the Lonely Whale Foundation was created to develop and support a community of ocean advocates through the champion of the Lonely Whale. Calling out at 52 Hz, the Lonely Whale sings at a frequency unrecognized by other whales leading us to believe it lives alone, calling out to no response. Through the story of our whale we are able to confront loneliness and connect with one another, ourselves, and our environment.
What else can I do?
- Stop buying bottled water now
- Boycott corporations that are involved in mass plastic production
- Get a refillable water canteen and drink tap water – this will save you money, is healthier and reduces your ecological impact
