Women's History Month: Protecting Oceans

Don't let trash end up in the ocean March is Women's History Month, so this week we're highlighting important events in the lives of pioneering women and providing a related tip that you can use whether you're female or male. 

Event: In 1926, Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel, setting a new record in the process.

Tip: Discarded plastic pollutes oceans and threatens marine life. You can reduce your plastic use by opting for reusable shopping bags and bottles. Beach cleanups offer an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while doing something good for the environment.
