Stop Sucking

The ocean plastics problem is completely overwhelming because we don’t know where to start with such a huge challenge. Instead of the traditional approach of asking people to adopt impossibly inconvenient changes to their lifestyle, we asked people to start with something we use every day, never think about and rarely ask for: the plastic straw. After they stopped sucking millions of straws, we got a city to go strawless for the month of September and Seattle will be the first city in the country that will ban plastic straws.

By raising awareness of the elephant’s plight and getting NGOs - and the public - to join and support the cause, elephants became top of the agenda at CITES 2016. As a result 4 separate UN resolutions were passed committing member states to banning the ivory trade.

In just one month 215,000 people signed our clean our cloud petition, which then convinced apple to change their data centers to run off coal free, 100% renewable energy
