World Oceans Day 2021: 3 Tips to Help Protect Our Oceans!
It's World Oceans Day today and what better way to raise awareness than to share a few tips and tricks on how to help save our beautiful oceans.
The focus for this years Ocean Day is to promote the protection of at least 30% of our oceans to support healthier and more diverse seas whilst helping to improve the climate.
But how can we make a difference!?
First things first, we think every day should be World Ocean Day! Not literally of course, but why should the protection of our blue planet be subject to one day of activism. So here are our top three tips for how you can help protect our oceans EVERY day of the year!
1. Start Small:
There's loads of different ways in which you can help to protect our Oceans but the best one is to make lots of little changes to your every day life. I'm sure you've heard of many by now. Using a refillable cup or bottle, ditching the plastic straws, taking your own bags when you go shopping. There are hundreds of ways that you can make a change.
2. Think Local:
However you enjoy the beach, you should always clean up after yourself. If you want to get involved in helping with keeping our local coast clean from plastic and litter, why not join the Mucky Mermaids beach clean. A local group who run beach cleans in the Eastbourne area. Head over to their Facebook page to see when the next big clean-up is and how you can get involved.
3. Ditch the Plastic:
Finally, one that is very close to home. Using refillable jars and containers for your food and homeware goods. Have you ever come back from a food shop and noticed the amount of plastic! If not, we urge you to look next time you go shopping. By switching to refillable options you will save countless amounts of plastic and as an added bonus, your kitchen cupboards will look amazing. Come in Store to see the range of refillable jars and containers that we have on offer.
