Our Daily Ocean: Day 223


"Plastic pollution is the visible symbol of our global crisis of over-consumption. 



Let's pledge to shift our societies away from the disposable habits that poison our oceans and land, eliminate our consumption of throwaway plastics, and begin embracing a culture of sustainability.
 Our health, our children, and the survival of future generations depend on us." 

~ marine biologist Dr. Wallace J. Nichols
