Plastic Recycling and Reduction

Replacing single-use plastic items with reusable options keeps plastic out of the ocean and animals out of harm’s way.

Easy Action: Use our water bottle refill stations to stay hydrated on your next visit.

How the Houston Zoo Helps

The Houston Zoo is plastic bottle and plastic bag free!

The Houston Zoo holds annual beach clean ups to remove plastic trash and to involve the community in saving animals in the wild.

How You Can Help

Bring your reusable bags when shopping.

Say no thank you to straws and other single-use plastic items.
