Waves Of Change, For Our Oceans
For 52 weeks, we will be introducing a new challenge to better the environment each week. A new goal will be set forth to add on to the previous weeks goal and after one year, you will have 52 lifestyle changes that will better the environment.
Everyone starts a new year with a resolution. But at Sea Voice News, we want everyones year to be much bigger than one resolution. Picture this as a snowball rolling down a mountain. At the top, it’s one small singular snowball. But as it starts rolling down the mountain, it adds more and more snow till it becomes massive. Week 1 is the top of the mountain and week 52 is the bottom. By the time we all reach week 52, our snowball will be one big change in the way we live our lives. It will be a real change to fighting the negative impact humans have on the environment.
Each week, our new goal will give us a chance to make a significant impact on the environment while not having to change our lifestyles too much. The reality of our society is that it does not take a lot to make an impact. This challenge will give you the opportunity to set weekly goals and continue to build on the them throughout the year.
So without further ado, introducing the goal for week 2….
Pick Up One Piece Of Trash Each Day!
Day in and day out, we are so accustomed to seeing trash liter our planet, we overlook most of it. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to take responsibility in protecting our planet and trash will find its way into our streets, rivers, lakes, and oceans. We may never be able to fix this problem but what we can do is alleviate the damage being caused by trash and plastic. Research has shown that plastic in particular is causing coral reefs to die at a much higher rate due to the damage caused by plastic and bacteria the plastic will carry as it drifts the reefs on the bottom of the sea floor.
To try and help reduce the amount of trash and plastic that ends up in our environment, it will be our goal to pick up one piece of trash each day. We encourage you to pick up as much as you can, but setting a simple goal of picking up one piece will make a difference on a large scale if everyone joins in!
As you go through your day, try and become more visually aware of the obvious trash problem that plagues us everywhere. Each piece that does not end up in our ocean is a win.
Remember to keep consistent with your prior weeks goals! Check out every goal we are still working on below.
