Today, June 8th, 2022, is world ocean day. Its purpose is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans. Coming from Iceland, I realize the importance of the ocean´s wellbeing, and I challenge you to do your part to keep our oceans healthy.
We are all connected, and we all depend on Mother Earth, so let's all get involved and protect our planet.
Here are some ideas on how you can help.
- Refuse single use plastics
- Choose sustainably sourced seafood
- Switch to eco products—is your laundry detergent harmful to aquatic life?
- Reduce your carbon footprint—less air travel, eat less meat, switch to alternative energy
Lend your voice—be a champion for our oceans and planet.
Remember, it is our only home, let's take better care of her together.
