World Oceans Day

If there is one thing in our world that connects us, it is our oceans. Today we celebrate their wonder.

I always find it inspiring to look out over a huge body of water, watching the waves build and break on the shore and contemplating the bounty of life they contain. It saddens me to think about the amount of garbage the oceans now contain and how we have harmed the corral reefs and sea dwelling creatures.

Today is the perfect day to pledge to do better – to reduce the amount garbage we throw away by recycling, composting, reducing and reusing products.

We can also pledge to eat only sustainable seafood. David Suzuki Foundation’s website Eat for Healthy Oceans makes it easy to find out how to do exactly that.

Let us truly celebrate the wonderful world of oceans by blessing and taking care of them.
