  1. We can go to beaches and set up garbage cans and recycling bins around for people to throw away there trash. We can also be more green and use less plastic at home or in school, such as refill your water bottle more after one use instead of throwing it out and buying a new one.

  2. We could organize a new garbage disposal system; being more forceful on recycling at the beach. Also we could create another kind of disposable garbage can with a special top on it to prevent the sea birds from picking out of it.

  3. Well first, I would encourage my family to use less plastic or none at all, encourage other friends as well as just random people I see using too much to not use so much. Then, I would start recycling, to make sure no waste is left behind. Even if that means going to the beach to pick up all the trash visible. In the water or the sand. There should also be less obvious garbage & recycling bins, not accessible for wild life at the beach.

  4. My family and I can do many things to prevent seabirds from eating plastic. To start we can avoid using plastic and if we do make sure it recycled accordingly. Also if we by soda cans that have plastic connecting them we can cut them so if it were to end up in the ocean than it would not get stuck in seabirds' beaks. Lastly, my family likes to go to the beach so when we go, we could pickup trash we see on the beach. There are so many things that my family can do to help, next time I buy plastic or go to the beach I will be more observant.

  5. Even though this issue is bigger than me and my family we still can take the initiative to prevent the plastic within our household from reaching the beaches. The first thing we can do is to recycle all plastics and double check the garbage to see if there is any stray plastic. The next thing we can do is to limit the amount of plastics we use and find replacements for them like paper. We can also inform our friends and family about this issue to try and get it more recognition. The thing is with these big issues is that you can only do so much but if we play our part hopefully we can help.

  6. My family and I don't use plastic that much, but when we use them we make sure we recycle them. Also we check that the plastic was safly put in the recycle so no more problems could happen. We also recycle cans and paper so not another animal can suffer.

  8. My family can take several steps to reduce the problem with seabirds and one is refilling bottles with tap water to limit the production of plastic. Furthermore, when we are at the beach we can recycle any plastic items we use. Additionally, when we go to the supermarket we can use re-useable bags to decrease the amount of plastic bags .used and possibly ending up in the ocean. Also, we could not but clothes with synthetic fibers because many times that is what is found inside the birds. Finally, another way could be to use re-useable containers to further limit the production of plastic.

  11. The best thing my family and I could do to prevent seabirds from eating plastic would to tell everyone we know to recycle their plastic. Also, my family and I could limit our use of plastic. In addition, instead of using the plastic bags at grocery shops we could switch to environmentally friendly ones. Lastly, one problem I always see is little kids releasing their balloons into the air. Therefore, next time I see a child with a balloon I'll tell their parents to tie their balloons to their wrist to ensure that they don't release it into the atmosphere.

  12. Reducing the amount my family uses plastic would be the first step in preventing the rising percentage of plastic eaten by seabirds. I would suggest we continue to avoid using plastic water bottles as they are an unnecessary form of using plastic. I would also suggest we donate clothes or hand them down to other family members, because a lot of the plastic seabirds are eating comes from synthetic fibers on clothes. I will also try and influence my family to opt for non-synthetic and more organic fabrics. Using paper bags, or even better yet, reusable bags at the grocery store would also lessen my family's affect on the rising consumption of plastic by both seabirds and humans.

  13. The first thing my family and I can do to reduce the amount of plastic that gets to the ocean is to reduce the amount of plastic we throw away. Reusing disposable plastic water bottles or switching to reusable water bottles would greatly reduce the amount of plastic we throw away every day. Recycling plastic shopping bags or switching to paper bags also will help to reduce amount of plastic used. Buying products that are packaged in natural materials that breakdown instead of plastic will also reduce the plastic that gets to the oceans where the sea birds eat.

  14. The first thing my family could do to reduce the amount of plastic that get into the oceans and into animal is to cut down the amount of plastic my family and i use. Not only that but we could also reclycle more materials and try to persuade our friends and extended family to do the same.

  15. Well when my family and I go to the beach we make sure we pickup all the garbage that is ours and we never bring it near the water. Another idea is for the beach to have more garbage/recycle bins all around. Another possible option is to have some kind of material that picks up garbage and other trash like in the near future with high technology.
