Who can change the world?
Rainbow warriors of Greenpeace?
Eco pirates of sea Shepard?
They can affect but still not strong enough to change.
But you want to know something?
We could change our future, but just if we do it together. Just by a simple action as;
Use less plastic; Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and killed tens of thousands of marine animals each year. 9.1 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. It´s estimated that in 2025 it will rise up to 150 million metric tons.
One thing that´s even more scary?
Plastic dissolves in the water after a while, and it enter the ecosystem. The plastic then wander from the smallest creatures to the biggest, which are humans.
To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in non disposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible. And never forget everything that are out there will eventually end up in the ocean so leave nothing.
Imaging if every human would spend 5 minutes per day to clean and recycle. Approximately 7.4 billion people would be available. Multiple that by the five minutes and we would have 37 billion minutes everyday of erasing all the trash on the whole earth. We would erase the problem of plastic and all be super cleaning heroes.
We have a responsibility to save our ocean.
