My Pledges

So last week i was writing about one ocean a documentary series i've been watching for the past couple of weeks. And I also wrote about there website and the pledges that they have. This post will list some of the pledges I plan on taking this year and hopefully carry on for years to come!

My Pledges :
  • Buy locally and purchase organic.
  • Celebrate World Oceans Day and Rivers to Ocean Week. (June 8-14)
  • Demand more marine protected areas
  • Dispose of garbage properly, on land or water.
  • Dispose of household hazardous wastes properly. (Dispose of household hazardous wastes at proper waste disposal sites rather than dumping them down the drain or in the garbage.)
  • Learn about the source of meat products.
  • Learn how to identify local ocean species.
  • Learn more about northern marine ecosystems.
  • Only buy vintage or fake coral jewellery.
  • Plant as many trees as possible.
  • Practice and promote recycling.
  • Reduce personal carbon emissions.
  • Watch an ocean documentary!

There are many more pledges to take and vary in difficulty and involvement level so everyone can find some way to help our environment. I hope to take some more pledges but at the moment i'm working on these and will hopefully take on some more later in the year.
