#5 on our list... Straws! Plastic straws are one of the easiest plastic items to give up because you don't need to buy a reusable replacement! If you wish to drink through a straw making an investment in a stainless steel one is the most environmentally friendly option.
#4! Choosing items with less plastic packaging hugely contributes to the protection of New Zealand's beautiful coastline. Single use plastic packaging can, unfortunately, be found on all our beaches and in rock pools!
Top Tip #2! Use a refillable water bottle rather than buying one-use plastic bottles. Did you know that worldwide approximately 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day! That is a HUGE amount of waste.
#1 To reduce the amount of plastic bags in circulation, Bring a reusable bag when you shop! For all of Seaweek 2017, you can swap your single use plastic bag with an eco-friendly reusable bag at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Gift shop. (some T&Cs apply, but not many!)
This Seaweek - 25th February to 5th March, SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's celebrate Healthy Seas, Healthy People! Discover the small everyday changes that make a HUGE difference. Follow our top tips each day and help make some big changes!

Today just happens to be World Penguin Awareness Day, and we were lucky enough to capture one of this season's new Gentoo chicks, Percy, experiencing water for the very first time! The recently fledged chicks are very soon to be released into the enclosure and can't wait to join the rest of the colony swimming in the pool.
