Help Protect Oceans in 2011
Pledge to help save oceans by taking a few simple actions:
* Use Reusable Bags
* Eat Sustainably
* Green your Gardening
Will you join us in saving oceans and marine life? We use billions of plastic bags every year in the US alone, 50% of them end up in landfills and about 45% end up floating in our oceans where they can kill marine life. Scientists estimate that we have already removed as much as 90 percent of the large predatory fish like sharks, swordfish and cod from the world's oceans. This not only wrecks those species but also has far-reaching effects down the food chain. And of the 30 common pesticides used on lawns, 26 are linked to serious human illness including cancer and major organ disease and 24 are toxic to fish and other aquatic organisms. But don't get overwhelmed - let's just do something about it!
