Think about what you toss

To the editor:

Our seventh-grade class did a poster on how most animals die in the Atlantic. We found that less than half of the animals die organically (from natural causes), and what we do here affects them. If you throw a bottle out in this area, it will eventually end up in an ocean. Some simple things you can change in your everyday lives to help are: use less plastic, like using reusable water bottles, bags and straws. Another idea of ours was just simply recycle more. These are just some ways you could help by changing something in your everyday life.
