Let’s Take Care of Cape Cod
Welcome! Please help to reduce plastic pollution and litter!
The Reduce Reuse Recycle Challenge
Take the pledge!
The Nature Conservancy states, “Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time. It is choking our waterways, polluting our oceans, killing wildlife and infiltrating our food supply.” To Take Care of Cape Cod & the Islands and prevent plastic pollution we always recommend “reduce and reuse.” However, we believe when done with care that recycling can also play a significant role in reducing plastic pollution and litter. We need your help with all three approaches to protect our fragile Cape Cod environment.
Here’s how you can Take Care of Cape Cod & the Islands:
- Reduce whenever possible
- Reuse when you can’t reduce
- Recycle when you can’t reduce or reuse
- Refill your water bottle from the tap
- Skip the Straw
- Pick up after your pet
- Challenge others to participate
- Take the pledge!
