Every Action Counts

How can we even make an impact?
At NAMEPA we believe, quite simply, by one action at a time. Every individual plays a critical role and through education on the devastating effects of marine pollution, individuals are increasingly making the commitment to the 5 R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose. To eliminate as much single-use plastic from your daily lives as possible – the less waste produced, the less waste at risk of entering our waterways.
Change One Habit, Change the World
Share your knowledge with others! With nearly 8 billion people on the planet, if every individual commits to even a single change in refusing single-use, and choosing to reuse, thereby reducing their own individual waste, we could significantly slow the hemorrhage of plastic and waste that is flowing into our waterways.
