World’s Oceans Day was started in 1992 by the United Nations to raise ocean health awareness and bring sustainable practices to the fishing industry. Many of us know the ocean as a place of leisure and fun and one that provides food to our table. However, just as our ocean faces a number of challenges, so does our community. And our ocean will thrive only if we all foster a vibrant, inclusive community that comes together to protect it.
As we do our part to reduce our product footprint and waste, here are a few organizations working towards healthier oceans you can support and get involved with.
