Beach Cleanup

May 24 - May 29

 

Plastic pollution is a major problem that people all over the world are dealing with. Let us work together to make the planet a healthier place. The ocean’s ecosystems and the marine animals that live there have been harmed by plastic pollution. Turtles, seagulls, fish, and mammals eat plastic, which reduces their ability to reproduce, impairs their movement, and causes mortality. Microplastics, which are small plastic bits, are a dangerous thing. They are particularly harmful to animals because they can absorb toxins and resemble food, causing many marine animals to devour them. This isn’t just bad for the aquatic creatures. Because humans consume seafood, microplastic will pass through marine animals and enter the human digestive system, posing a severe threat to human health.

 

The universe is based on fair exchange. What you give you will get. What you do will impact not only yourself but also others. So please think twice before throwing plastic on the beach or on the roads. Let us work together to save sea creatures and other people
