The Maritime Aquarium is doing our part for the environment by significantly reducing our use of single-use plastics.
In order to further educate our guests about the dangers of single-use plastic, we have created displays throughout the Aquarium about Americans’ excessive use of plastic water bottles and the larger problems of plastic pollution in the ocean. During their visit, guests can also easily refill their reusable water bottles at a bottle-filling station near the first floor restrooms. In addition, many changes have been made by CulinArt, our on-site catering company, and Event Network, our gift-shop operator.
The Maritime Aquarium has a position on local laws that would ban plastic grocery bags. Click here to learn more.
