Celebrities like Jack Johnson, Benicio del Toro, and Jackson Browne are lending their media-clout to the problem of excessive plastic pollution currently choking our oceans and killing innocent wildlife.
The short spots encourage people to refuse disposable plastic bags, cups, utensils, and straws—the biggest sources of plastic pollution.
Check out what Jack Johnson had to sing about refusing plastic:
On Saturday, the TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch brings the insidious devastation of plastic pollution to the forefront of the media debate.
Prominent thought leaders, innovators, and artists will share what they know, explore solutions, and together develop a plan for action. The event will be broadcast live on the TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch website and on Facebook starting at 8:30am PST/11:30am EST and continuing until 6pm PST/9pm EST.
Refuse to be part of the problem and instead join the global alliance of individuals, organizations and businesses working together to stop plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on humans, animals and the environment!
