Guide to Less Plastic Pollution of the Ocean

Oct 02, 2019 by Mariam in  Allgemein

The ocean is our home, so we should take care of it as much as we would take care of the place where we live.

The ocean is hurt from the human behavior, the pollution we cause, and from us taking it for granted forever. The truth is that this amazing body of water is suffering every day from the activities we directly and indirectly do to it.

Plastic pollution is one of the threats that the ocean faces worldwide. Each year the size of the plastic that covers the ocean could cover the whole coastline of the planet. So, if we think that we have no impact on the ocean caused by our everyday practices, think again.

Not only does the ocean pollution impact the cleanliness of the water, but also sea turtles, fish, whales, coral reefs and countless other marine species and habitats.

One might ask: so, if we clean the ocean from the plastic, does the problem go away?

Sadly, no. plastic debris breaks down to very small particles, microplastics, and swim into the ocean, fly in the air, go into our food and into the bodies of the sea inhabitants.

However, there are still some things we can do to help the ocean plastic pollution impact decrease:

  • Reduce use of single-use plastics

Do not use plastic straws, go shopping with your own tote bags. If you have the opportunity, go to the conscious stores where you can take your own food containers and buy them with it.

  • Recycle

It is a no-brainer that you have to make sure to recycle whatever you can. Recycling helps plastic recirculate in the form of other plastic materials and sometimes clothes as well. Separate your plastic waste from other trash: metals, cardboard, paper, bio-waste, glass and so on. You can check from your local recycling center what you can do and how you can do better.

  • Take part in beach cleanups

Whether you go on vacation to a beach or leave nearby, always take time to collect trash from the coastline, even if it does not “belong” to you. Another person might have polluted beach, but it doesn’t give you an excuse to not clean up the place. After all, it is for everyone and at the end of the day we all are harmed by the consequences.

  • Educate yourself and others

Always keep up do date with the latest trends in plastic pollution, ocean facts, recycling. Learn and teach others. Help your friends to be aware of the developments in fun but informative ways.

If your friends are still not convinced we need to protect the ocean, show them the infographic we prepared for all the OCEAN LOVERS.
