Post Pesach Plastic Purge Challenge

This Year, Make the Omer Count! 

Together,  members of the Bayit can make a difference by reducing our collective use of plastics in 3 easy steps:

  1. Join the Challenge by filling out the form below.
  2. Each week take on a new action to reduce plastics use.     
  3. Tell a friend.


 Why is this important?

  • More than 35 million pounds of plastic have been dumped into the ocean.
  • Soon there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish; & plastics are killing marine life.
  • Half of the plastic we use every day is thrown away within minutes.
  • We only recycle a tiny portion of the plastic waste we generate.
  • Plastics are potentially bad for human health
  • New Yorkers use 23 billion plastic bags each year.
  • Americans use 2 million plastic bottles every 15 minutes.

I look forward to  participating by:

  • Taking a new action each week of the Omer to reduce my plastic usage.
  • Encouraging friends to join the challenge.
