We all love the weird animals of the ocean, but they won't always be there if we don't help protect them from our fellow humans and, yes, our own actions. This World Ocean Day, we need to take a deeper look at what's happening. Did you know that enough plastic to fill a garbage truck is dumped into the ocean on a daily basis, and that it's estimated that we will have more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050? This just isn't acceptable.
We all know that corporations are damaging the environment on the largest scale, but this waste is coming from households across the country, too. We need to significantly reduce what we are using and throwing away. Will you take the seven-day challenge to stop using plastic and see if you might be able to even extend it further?
My kiddo was born in the NICU and needed oxygen for months. I'm not saying we need to get rid of plastic altogether. But we can definitely stop using it when it's not needed, look for better alternatives and reuse everything before thinking about throwing it away. Are you with me?
