Did you know that the ocean produces over half of the world’s oxygen and is responsible for transporting heat from the equator to the poles? Therefore the ocean is a key factor in regulating our climate and weather patterns. The ocean also is responsible for a crucial percentage of the world’s trade and plays a huge role in our food and pharmaceutical industry.
As today is #WorldOceanDay, I’ve put together 3 simple things that you can do to help our oceans:
1. Reduce Vehicle Pollution – walk, rollerblade or bike to local places to reduce emissions.
3. Be mindful of what you’re wearing when you enter the ocean. Did you know that chemicals like oxybenzone in sunscreen can wash off your body while you swim in the oceans which are then absorbed by corals? This in turn disrupts the corals reproduction and may contribute to coral bleaching. Choose environmentally friendly sunscreens such as Avon Pure Mineral Sunscreen when swimming in open water and do your part in protecting our oceans.
What’s one thing you’re going to start doing to help our oceans?
