Earth day: save our oceans

Okey I know, Earth day was like three or four days ago, oh god maybe even a week ago. But in my defence everyday should be Earth day, right? We should appreciate our world every day and be honored that we got the privilege to be born in this beautiful world. So what do you say about saving the world huh? Saving the world or more making up for what we humans have caused. By this time we should all know what’s going on, what the consequences of our actions will be and more.  We all know a lot of different solutions on our big global problems, so I hope that everyone are aware of how we together can change stuff to the better. If not, keep on reading!
Today I wanted to talk to you about one of the most beautiful and wonderful things in this world, the ocean. I have always loved the ocean. For me it’s just breathtaking and such a incredible hidden world. Like did you know that about 95% of our oceans are still unexplored. Unseen by human eyes? And that’s when I start speculating in my head, like even though we think we have discovered and know a lot about the ocean, we actually don’t. I can’t even imagine how much more there is to discover. More and more of the oceans deep secrets.

The ocean is basically everything for us, without it the natural balance would never work and with to much of it, all of the land living creatures (including us) in this world wouldn’t have a place to live on. That wouldn’t be pleasing. But we have the ocean to thank for a lot of stuff. For example, we humans can go weeks without food and days without water but not even a hour without oxygen. And actually 50% of the oxygen we breathe is from our oceans.

Here’s your bible to save the oceans:

USE FEWER PLASTIC PRODUCTS

All plastic that end up in the ocean contribute to destroying the habitat of most animals and kill tens of thousands of marine animals each year.

To limit your impact

  • Carry a reusable water bottle and a reusable bag when shopping.
  • Recycle MORE!

HELP TAKE CARE OF THE BEACH!

Whenever you’re hanging out on the beach, whether you’re snorkeling, surfing or just hanging out with friends, don’t forget to clean up after yourselves. Always! The trash you’re leaving will probably end up in the ocean in some way.

DON’T PURCHASE ITEMS THAT EXPLOIT MARINE LIFE

Certain products are contributing to the harming of coral reefs and marine populations.

Examples of items to avoid:

  • Coral jewelry
  • turtle shell hair accessories
  • Any shark products

SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS WORKING TO PROTECT THE OCEAN

Many different organizations and institutions are fighting to protect ocean habitat and marine wildlife.

  • Find a national organization and consider giving financial support.
  • Volunteer and get involved in the project close to home.

We destroy the ocean and that’s not fair, the ocean keep on fighting for us, but do we appreciate it enough? I don’t think so, but what do you think? I would love to know your opinions and thoughts about this topic!

  2. Great post! I’m very bad when it comes to plastic bottles, but at least I try to recycle. What really gets on my nerves though is people who litter around water! I mean, is it really so hard to put your garbage in the bin?

  3. The plastics issue is such a big one. I haven’t used plastic bottles in a while, and try to refuse straws in restaurants. My thing lately has been to minimize my microplastic use in clothing in cosmetics. That one is harder.

  4. Industrial agriculture, most of which is to support animals raised for meat, is the biggest threat to oceans. Not to mention both farmed and wild-caught fish for human consumption is threatening the food chain balance. We should all do our best to reduce meat intake as well.

  5. Outstanding post. Thanks for standing up for the thing u believe and I never thought of the ocean much (because I live in Austria and we don’t have oceans) but thanks for the insight and newly gained responsibility.

  6. I definitely agree with you, we shouldn’t just think about the earth once a year, we should take care of it every day. The ocean is so beautiful and some of these facts were really interesting, I’ve also nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award! xxx
