Our Plastic Pollution Problem

Thanks to volunteers and our incredible Alliance team, we removed over 54,000 pieces of floatable trash from the Bronx River in 2016, and over 40,000 of those pieces were Styrofoam! By removing this trash before it gets too broken down, we are doing our part to help prevent plastic from choking our oceans and wildlife. And if we continue to choose to use reusable items, like coffee cups and bags, rather than single-use, we all help solve the plastic problem.
