“There is only one ocean that covers this planet. The lifeblood of the planet, the ocean that connects us to each other and makes life on our planet possible. Today our ocean is in danger, choking on plastic that flows from our homes and communities into rivers, onto beaches down to the depths of the ocean. Every year, the amount of plastic produced around the world is roughly the same as the entire weight of humanity. 91% of this plastic is not recycled. We call for a ban on single use plastic, which compromises 50% of plastic. If nothing changes there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.” @nomoreplasticco
Today is #WorldOceansDay and one of the greatest threats to our oceans is plastic pollution; Something that we as humans are solely responsible for and have the power to change. 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year which endangers sea life and contributes to health issues for us. — Easy ways to make a difference in our daily lives: skip straws, use reusable bags for groceries and shopping, skip plastic bags in the produce section, avoid single use cutlery and cups (carry reusable water bottle), tell your local officials that you support ban on single use.
We can all start with one commitment. I’m going to start by skipping straws. It’s up to us to make these changes collectively. We are the solution. ♡🌎 #LessPlastic #WorldOceansWeek
