Clean our ocean is a pretty apt theme for today’s #WorldOceansDay
Plastics are devastating marine ecosystems and destroying life – we all need to act to #SaveOurOceans
Get involved – your oceans need you.
Action is being taken by communities and institutions worldwide, with the EU committed to reducing marine litter by 30% by 2020. Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment Maritime Affairs & Fisheries, says there is hope for #OurOcean – so let’s all help to turn that hope into reality and ditch single-use plastics.
On #WorldOceansDay 2018 I want to thank you, the #ocean heroes who have helped make the link between our actions on land & their consequences at sea. Thanks to you, our awareness is growing & our habits are changing. There is hope for #OurOcean https://t.co/JY1BFoo306 pic.twitter.com/eB4qHtjKgn
