Tip to help the ocean #6 - PICK A PLACE AND MAKE IT YOURS
I can feel overwhelmed thinking about how much trash gets into the ocean every year.
I can't prevent all of that modern detritus made mostly of plastic from getting into the marine environment. I can start where I live. I can take action right where I am. I can do this today.
You may not live near the beach, so why not pick your street, school or local park? Can you spend twenty minutes sometime this week to go on a beach, or neighborhood cleanup? I'll be out there with you, picking up my place.
I heard Charles Moore say recently that the ocean is downhill from everywhere.
One of the reasons beach cleanups are effective is that I pick up items I use in my daily life and I have to ask myself, "Am I part of the problem?"
TAKE IT OFF THE SAND AND THEN TAKE IT OUT OF YOUR OWN LIFE
