Seawater is a source of energy and an essential natural resource; this environmental event is World Oceans Day, celebrated on June 8.
This salty holiday was established by The Ocean Project. People pollute water without realizing they are bringing death and destruction to life on the planet.
Skeptics believe nature has a powerful restorative mechanism. This is true, but the scale of destructive human activity is accompanied by irreparable consequences, which the natural potential cannot cope with.
- The ocean is also called Earth’s respiratory system due to the amount of oxygen produced by plankton in the water.
- The symbolic color of this environmental event is blue.
- Oceans represent an interaction of elements. Millions of different living creatures live in the water column.
The ocean is majestic, represents tremendous power, is capable of destroying the world and giving new life.
How to take part
Join a volunteer society, help activists protect big bodies of water from pollution.
Go to the beach pick up trash. Kind people do it constantly, without waiting for the authorities. However, garbage piles up due to the irresponsible behavior of beachgoers and tourists.
Eliminate plastic. Going to the store, take a textile or paper bag and give up plastic bags.
The World Ocean concentrates energy. Use the riches provided by nature wisely, protect nature, and create harmony and a safe environment.
