Does anyone remember the ad from the 70s and 80s with the Native American man crying by the side of the road because of all the trash that people where throwing out of car windows?
Unfortunately, whales, sea otters, dolphins and other sea creatures cannot make public service announcements and cry on camera. If they could, however, I am sure they would be sobbing.
Preston McSwain and his family set up a clean ocean website called, Clean Up Oceans, after a walk on a beach found me picking up trash every few steps. In past years, this beach had been trash free.
Our hope is that this little effort can be a way help spread the word on the importance of clean oceans and the organizations that support ocean sustainability (see our How – Organizations You Can Support tab).
Every small action helps.
