Take the Plastic-Free Pledge!

Keep our dunes and our beaches plastic-free! Take our plastic-free pledge this July and make a commitment to keeping the places that we love cleaner and greener. 

Refuse. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

I pledge to take action to refuse plastics whenever possible; to reduce the amount of plastic in my life; to reuse everyday items; and to properly recycle items when I am unable to make a different choice.

I am ready to do my part by saying "no" to plastic utensils, to-go containers, straws, cups and more. I will remember to bring my own bag to the grocery store. I will choose more environmentally friendly products to reduce the risk of microplastics in our waterways. I will recreate responsibly and leave our beaches and trails better than what I found them.

I am prepared to be more mindful, and I will make new choices. I am prepared to change my lifestyle and be plastic-free!

By taking the pledge, you may win some free reusable swag!

Being plastic-free takes work, but we're here to help! By taking our pledge, you will be entered into our drawings to win a plastic-free prize pack to help jumpstart your plastic-free lifestyle.
