Fireworks are only used one time to be left on beaches to harm wildlife and add plastic to our Ocean. Sign your name to fight plastic bottle rockets in the State of Washington and help lower the amount of plastic washing out to sea.
Ocean Blue has removed over 4,200 pounds of plastic firework debris from the Long Beach Peninsula this July 2019. Our team has assessed a 26 mile beach of the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington and we believe that over one million bottle rockets remain on the beaches, adding to the 300 metric tons of plastic already floating in our one world Ocean. Ocean Blue will be sending in letters of support and fighting for our beaches to stop plastic bottle rockets in the State of Washington. It is time now to speak for our wildlife and create this policy for 2020.
Fireworks are full of dangerous chemicals: Traditionally, fireworks are made from gunpowder and are made with 75 percent of potassium nitrate mixed with around 15 percent charcoal and 10 percent sulfur. Modern fireworks sometimes are used with other mixtures like sulfur powder and with extra potassium nitrate or other chemicals. The chemicals used today are harmful to air quality, children, animals and drinking water. Please sign your name and let our Congress know that you support the ban of plastic bottle rockets and fireworks made of chemicals to help protect our beaches and one world Ocean.
