🐋 Help us to save the marine animals 🐋
The role plastic products play in the daily lives of people all over the world is interminable. We could throw statistics at you all day long (e.g. Upwards of 300 MILLION tons of plastic are consumed each year), but the impact of these numbers border on inconceivable.
For those living on the coasts, a mere walk on the beach can give anyone insight into how staggering our addiction to plastic has become as bottles, cans, bags, lids and straws (just to name a few) are ever-present. In other areas that insight is more poignant as the remains of animal carcasses can frequently be observed; the plastic debris that many of them ingested or became entangled in still visible long after their death. Sadly, an overwhelming amount of plastic pollution isn’t even visible to the human eye, with much of the pollution occurring out at sea or on a microscopic level.
The short-lived use of millions of tons of plastic is, quite simply, unsustainable and dangerous. We have only begun to see the far-reaching consequences of plastic pollution and how it affects all living things. According to a study from Plymouth University, plastic pollution affects at least 700 marine species, while some estimates suggest that at least 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution.
Here are some of the marine species most deeply impacted by plastic pollution.
- Sea Turtles
- Seals and Sea Lions
- Whales and Dolphins
More than ever, the fate of the ocean is in our hands. To be good stewards and leave a thriving ocean for future generations, we need to make changes big and small wherever we are. Every purchase supports Ocean Conservation. We give 15% of our profits to Organizations that bravely fight for Marine Conservation.
EVERY TIME YOU GO TO THE BEACH PICK UP SOME PLASTIC NOT THE SEA SHELLS!! ANYTHING HELPS A BIT! 🌊🐳
This is SUPER IMPORTANT.
Save our Earth, it’s the only one we have!
This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s comfortable, and well designed. Please help to save our oceans! 🌊💙
Save our planet, save our oceans, save ocean life, save the future. This all makes me so sad, and it should make everyone else sad too. The earth is dying it’s our fault. Maybe not directly (if you don’t live in a location that is remotely near the ocean), but you can at least help to be a solution.
