Buzzards Bay is a stunning & crucial resource for thousands of living species. And yet The Bay & its 440-square-mile Watershed are excruciatingly vulnerable to many dangers, among them nitrogen pollution from waste systems, depleted wetlands, felled forests, overdevelopment and also plastic debris that enters our rivers & gets into The Bay, never to decay naturally the way a leaf does.
Team Re-Think Plastic is riding again in the Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride on Sunday, October 3 in order to 1) raise awarness for the need to protect clean water by any means possible; 2) call attention to legislation that bans petroleum-based plastic items & stops them at the source; 3) encourages everyone to seek out, buy and support biodegradable plastics, or "bioplastics."
Please join our team either as a rider or contributor or both! For over 13 years, Watershed riders have raised nearly a million dollars to fight pollution, permanently protect natural areas, harness the power of science, and increase access to the outdoors for all people.
Thank you for your support, for coming along with us on this important ride!
P.S. The Watershed Ride finish line is located at the Swope Center in Woods Hole and the public is invited to come cheer us on from 2-5pm. Hope to see you there!
