Today, June 8th, people from all over are celebrating World Oceans Day – global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.
This year’s theme is “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet” and individuals and organizations across the planet are taking action for prevention of plastic pollution in our ocean.
World Oceans Day has grown tremendously each year since The Ocean Project started coordinating it in 2002. With hundreds of partners involved, and the United Nations officially recognizing June 8 as World Oceans Day in 2008, we have reached millions worldwide.
On May 25th, singer Jack Johnson started the Wave for Change, asking people to do something for the ocean on World Oceans Day, reduce their plastic usage, and spread the message that the oceans need our help.
How will you take action for the ocean?
