Want to make a difference? Here are FOUR things you can do today 👇👇👇
1. The use of oil, fossil fuels, and coal increase planet temperatuere which have catastrophic effects. If the planet heats up a half of a degree more, it could mean the difference of reef or no reef. Instead, use solar, wind, and electric powered vehicles. We can walk, bike, or rideshare more often.
2. Don't spray pesticides on your lawn. Run off water goes into our oceans which kills our reef. Reef provides up to 85% of our world oxygen. Imagine if all the reef is dead. How would we breathe? Use natural herbicides instead
3. Don't use those traditional sunscreens we've come accustomed to. They contain deadly chemicals which are harmful to the life of our reef. Only a drop of it is harmful to our ocean. Imagine all those tourists at the beach spraying boat loads of Banana Boat sunscreen. Instead use Reef-Safe sunscreen this summer. I personally recommend @tropicsport
4. Stop the use of single us plastic. One million marine animals are killed annually due to plastic. If we don't make drastic changes to the way we use plastic, by 2030 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Dont use plastic bottles. Instead use a @hydroflask
. Or anything other than plastic!
If we keep moving through life with the mentality that one person cannot make a difference, then we face the inevitable destruction of our reef and no longer having ANY marine life for our future generations. Imagine a world where we talk about how we use to have fish? That's a world I certainly don't want to live in.
The efforts of few can bring awareness to many which can result in drastic changes to preserve our wonderful plant. Mahalo for taking the time to read! 🤙Tag a friend to share this message 🎏
