Pip the pup is an adorable, fluffy little rescue dog whose dad, Adrian Grenier, is involved in efforts to protect the oceans. And Pip recently lent a helping paw, too.
Grenier started The Lonely Whale Foundation along with Lucy Sumner to raise awareness for ocean health and build empathy for marine life. Their latest campaign, Strawless Ocean, is an effort to get people to #StopSucking out of plastic straws.
At the South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX, they filmed videos to promote the campaign showing an octopus tentacle knocking straws out of people’s drinks. Pip starred in one of her own, and it’s adorable.
Pip knows that plastic straws are cluttering our oceans—and that in the U.S. alone, over 500 million straws are used and discarded EVERY DAY.
That’s a lot of plastic.
We salute your activism, Pip. You’ve earned a nap in the sun.
