No Plastic Pledge Photo by Bob DavisResponsibility

Reduce Your Plastic

Reduce, reduce, reduce...THEN reuse, recycle. AWAKE asks you to use cloth bags instead of plastic bags, clean canteens instead of plastic water bottles, and your own tupperware instead of take-out contrainsers. AWAKE has actively advocated a NO PLASTIC PLEDGE since 2005. We've helped cities throughout California work to ban one-use plastic bags. We're also working on expanding our NO STRAW CHALLENGE throughout Los Angeles in cooperation with the LA City Council. Take the NO PLASTIC PLEDGE today!
