The next ten years could define the next ten thousand years for the world’s oceans.
The ocean is the #1 source of protein for 1 billion people on the planet earth.
We depend on the ocean to regular our planet, absorb carbon dioxide, and support the greatest abundance of animal life on earth.
If you had to quantify the ocean in monetary terms, it would be worth about $31 trillion dollars to the world economy.
So why do we treat it like a giant trash bin?
Okay, feeling inspired to do something about it? Here are three ways to get involved:
1. Volunteer to help with a beach clean-up. If you’re in Los Angeles, Pluckfastic is a great organization to get involved with.
2. If you choose to eat seafood, be intentional about your choices. Use Fish2Fork.com to find
restaurants with more sustainable seafood options.
3. Support a plastic bag ban in your city. Find your City Council’s email address, then use this guide from One World Once Ocean to write them and let them know you want to see legislation put in place to protect the world’s oceans.
