Celebrate Water: Protect Our Oceans


by Andrew Ciccone July 17, 2019

Water is life. All life comes from the ocean. Our oceans cover 140 million square miles, or about 70 percent of the earth’s surface. Water sustains us, it divides us and it connects us.   

Increasingly our rights to water and our seas are at risk. The oceans wildlife is being decimated by overfilling and man’s wastes that our poisoning and polluting our water. 

Above and under the sea, we are destroying the earth’s ecosystem. We’ve reached the tipping point, we need to take big steps to reverse climate change. There will never be another chance to save our blue planet. 

About 4.8 to 12.7 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans each year. Garbage from landfills, microfibers and much more seeps into the waterways and eventually into our seas. Eighty percent of the ocean’s pollution begins on land and runs off into the sea making it unsafe for humans and wildlife.   

Marine life ingests the plastic and we do as well. It’s killing our planet and slowing poisoning our nervous systems.  Experts believe at the current rate, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. 

Healthy oceans are critical to a healthy planet and healthy people. The earth’s oceans produce oxygen for us to breathe, regulate our climate, clean the water we drink, the marine life sustains us. The oceans tides transport us, inspire us and protect us. 

 

The classically designed Superfustinox Stainless Steel Water Dispensers offer convenient, lightweight water transport, as well as stylish countertop or refrigerator dispensing. Ideal for the home, office, summer cottage, picnics, tailgate parties, RV, boating and camping.

Now is the time, start raising awareness about the threats to our oceans. Here are five super easy ways you can help protect our oceans. It’s as easy as one, two, three:  

ONE. Keep plastic out of our seas. Go to the beach and pick up all the trash before it floats into our oceans.

TWO. Reduce, reuse and recycle. Use less plastic.

  • Stop buying bottled water and start using a water flask!
  • Stop tossing things in the trash, whenever possible reuse, recycle and reduce the waste that goes down the drain and in the trash. 
  • Buy recycled goods and consider alternative to plastic. 

THREE. Support organizations that protect the oceans. So many amazing organizations are dedicated to cleaning up the oceans and protecting the creatures that live in them.

Oceana is the largest organization in the world solely devoted to marine conservation.

The Ocean Conservancy is a leading advocacy group working for the protection of special marine habitats, the restoration of sustainable fisheries and for reducing the human impact on ocean ecosystems. 

The Coral Reef Alliance works with communities around the world, helping to solve coral reef conservation challenges. Through collaboration with fishermen, government leaders, divers and scientists the organization leads holistic conservation programs that improve coral reef health and resilience and are replicated across the globe.

The World Wildlife Fund is one of the world’s leading conservation organizations. The WWF combines global reach with a foundation in science, and community action at every level from local to global to develop innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature. 

Greenpeace is a global organization working to stop environmental crimes, using non-violent creative action. Their mission is to protect biodiversity in all its forms, prevent pollution and abuse of the earth’s ocean, land, air and fresh water, end all nuclear threats, promote peace, global disarmament and non-violence.


Invest in our world’s future. Get involved in some way either locally or globally. Work with indigenous groups, community leaders, government officials, scientists and other organizations. Time is running out. Help safeguard the more than 2.4 million square miles ocean that is being destroyed.

Help save our planet.
