It’s no secret that the world is in the midst of an environmental crisis. One of the main causes of this crisis is the abundance of plastic and other litter that gets washed into our oceans, and then in turn affects sea life, entangling and choking everything from sea birds and seals to dolphins and whales, causing a slow and painful death when it’s ingested. It’s also alarming to learn that 90% of the Earth’s fish stocks have been overfished, and it’s predicted that by 2050 plastic items will outnumber fish in our seas. These are frightening statistics, and this sort of dire situation can make us all feel helpless, even apathetic in the face of the magnitude of the problem. But there is always something that we can do to make a difference, even if it’s in our own small way.
