Little Efforts, Big Changes!

Marine debris is not only unsightly, it’s dangerous to sea life, hazardous to human health, and costly to our economies. Marine animals become entangled in debris, and even mistake it for food – often with fatal results. Divers, swimmers and beach goers can be directly harmed by encounters with marine debris or its toxins. The environmental damage caused by plastic debris alone is estimated at US$13 billion a year.

Let our little efforts can make big changes in the underwater world!

Reinforcing our efforts in reducing the impacts of our consumerism habits, we can reflect each time we plan to do our grocery errand at the supermarket. Our choices, big and small in the goods we buy including its packaging will either aggravate or mitigate the ever worsening deluge of trash in the environment.

Here’s hoping that we become all conscious consumers aware of the impact of our wastes everyday.  Let this be a challenge, a resolution for the year 2017!
