One of the best things about living in Port Elizabeth? The beautiful beaches, crashing waves and that amazing ocean smell, of course!
The beach is more than just a place to spend another Sunday afternoon – it’s a major part of our ecosystem and it is our duty to help keep it clean. Not only is beach debris an unsightly aspect, it also wreaks havoc for marine life. See for yourself, just click on the link to learn some horrifying truths about the plastics found in our oceans earlier this year: https://www.earthday.org/2018/04/05/fact-sheet-plastics-in-the-ocean/
It must be agreed that we all have a social responsibility to at least try and make the world a better place, right? Gandhi said, “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.”
Drill some good, solid morals into your children, grab a few bags and start clearing that litter on your next beach walk. It’s good exercise and great fun, too! We did exactly this on Saturday morning and have already started making arrangements for our next excursion.
Remember, every tiny bit helps. Get proactive, be smart and take your first step to becoming a vital part in conserving our beaches: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/oceans/take-action/10-things-you-can-do-to-save-the-ocean/
