We admit, there have been times when we’ve felt judgmental about people who use plastic. We thought “come on world, GET ON BOARD! We have a plastic island twice the size of Texas in our ocean! Wake up!” View Article

That was before traveling to Egypt. Plastic water bottles were rampant. When clean water is not accessible, people turn to water sourced elsewhere and bottled in plastic, because it’s their main solution.

It’s time to help others along the way!
