Thoughtful Thursdays: Enjoy, respect, protect!

Published November 03, 2011

Enjoy, Respect, ProtectAs our global population reaches 7 billion people, it is more important than ever to take action to conserve and protect our waterways. Going "green" isn't about changing your entire lifestyle all at once. A sustainable lifestyle is achieved by making a series of Thoughtful Choices. Each week, on Thursdays, we will share a simple tip for how we can all help keep our planet healthy. Our Choice Our Harbor Market Kitchen cafe switched from compostable serveware to reusable serveware made from sustainable bamboo. Your Choice Swap out something disposable you use every day: take a travel mug to the coffee shop, pack your lunch items in washable containers instead of plastic bags, or use rags rather than paper towels to wipe up spills. Together we can make a difference! Learn more about the National Aquarium's conservation efforts and how you can help!
