"For her the ocean was more than a dream, it was a place she needed to visit to find herself. And when she returned to the city, you could see the sun in her eyes, the wind in her hair, and taste in the infinite salt on her lips." ✨ — Jose Chaves
"It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist: the threat is rather to life itself." 💙 — Rachel Carson, Marine Biologist
Sustainability is key to the environment. Did you know that NZ has banned all plastic bags from supermarkets? New world in NZ has also started a movement of “food in the nude”?? They have abandoned all plastic wrapping for virtually all fruit and veg! There are cafes around the world that accept own mugs/cups ONLY and don’t provide takeaway cups! .
Global warming and pollution is real and scary. Intense weather changes, increasing storms, fires, hurricanes, droughts, are becoming a thing of the future. The majority of this is due to fossil fuels burnt from large manufacturers being absorbed into our atmosphere and oceans (which are becoming more acidic, less happy environment for fish....) and pollution. .
So much pollution.
