Protect & Preserve the Ocean

Protect & Preserve the Ocean When Afroz Shah, a Mumbai-based lawyer, began his drive to clean the Versova beach, he did it for the love of environment. Little did he know that his personal project will catapult into the world’s largest clean-up campaign with support from 300 volunteers. 85 weeks later, Versova Beach is now completely transformed. If one man can trigger such monumental change, imagine what we all can achieve ‘together’ for the environment.

Our oceans are the life support system of our planet. However, rampant industrialization has polluted our oceans to such an extent that if we don’t change the way we do things— we are on track to cause irreversible damage to our ecosystem.

3 Simple Things You Can Do For The Ocean

Here’s what you can do in your own small way to create a lasting impact save the oceans:

1. Say NO to plastic
Whether you live in a coastal area or not, the garbage you throw has a
great chance of ending up in the ocean. Trash like plastic bags, wrappers, disposable
containers, can be washed into local waterways and eventually reach the ocean. Plastic
is hazardous to marine life as it introduces various toxins into the sea water.

2. Reduce your carbon footprint
Climate change and ocean acidification— results of our reliance on fossil fuels—are causing extreme impact on ocean health. By opting for clean energy, we can reduce the carbon footprints we generate, which can alleviate the issue of climate change. Global warming is also the reason why many marine species face extinction.

3. Don’t litter
Much of the plastic and waste found in the ocean step from the habit of littering. Enjoy the beauty of the ocean without defacing your pristine surroundings. Pick up trash and discourage others from littering the surroundings.

These simple yet potent measures can be really impactful in saving the oceans. We must protect the natural treasures and preserve them to be cherished by our future generations too. This World Oceans Day, let’s pledge to change our lifestyle and protect these natural reserves.
