ocean friendly top tips

There are plenty of ways everyone can do something in their everyday lives to have a positive impact on our planets blue environment. Unfortunately, there isn’t a one size fits all solution to how we can each do our bit to protect the ocean.

Here are a five ocean friendly tips and suggestions that have worked for us that can set you on the right path to adjusting your life to protecting the ocean.

1

IDENTIFY & REDUCE
One thing we can all do is look at our lives; what we do, what we buy, what we use, what we throw away, giving us ideas about where we can start to make changes. Then look to reduce and remove. e.g. Want to reduce plastic usage, first identify where plastic is coming from in your daily life.

CHOOSE YOUR FOOD WISELY
If you are eating seafood or purchasing seafood for pets, pick sustainable options. Sustainable seafood is caught or farmed using methods that are less harmful to species population and  to the general health of the oceans. Look for seafood caught using Pole & Line. There are online Good Fish Guides that show you the fish to choose and avoid eating.

LEARN ABOUT THE OCEAN
Take time to educate yourself and others about the ocean. Our planet although we call it Earth, it is in fact 70% water. The ocean is a huge part of our world and it is need of people to care enough to do something to protect it. We love learning and teaching about the ocean, you can even take a look at objects from the ocean we’ve found when out on the beach.

REFILL & REUSE, REUSE, REUSE
There are many items that can help you to remove the single use lifestyle and switch to a more sustainable way of living. Plus, it’s never too late to invest in a decent lunchbox, coffee cup, water bottle, travel cutlery, mesh/cotton fresh produce bags.
