Come on guys, it is absolutely no secret whatsoever that we are completely and utterly ruining our own planet. Pollution, Trash, Climate Change… we are destroying everything around us and the worst thing is is that some people are so completely in denial that they don’t actually believe that any of these harrowing reports are actually real… which is really, really scary.
You see, you may not think that using that one teensy weensy plastic fork on your lunch break could possibly cause such a massive and dramatic impact on our globe, however, when you imagine the idea that all 7.7 BILLION people in the world do as well and think the exact same thing as you – well, I think you can agree, that picture is pretty darn terrifying to think of. To put it incredibly bluntly for you all… we are currently DROWNING in plastic. And I mean d r o w n i n g.
On the bright side of things, however, it really does seem like lately there are more and more people cropping up who are interested in truly helping to save our planet simply because more and more people are aware of all the massive environmental threats around us (and which is, let’s be honest, mostly us) and the massive fact that we are 100% a big part of this awful problem.
All the inspiring stories of positive environmental movements worldwide which appear from time to time across social media, including the most recent viral trend of the #trashtag challenge, inspire us to all join the fight for a much brighter future. I mean, I hope it freakin’ does anyway!
And now, yet another attempt to fight off the sheer ignorance of a shocking percentage of people around the world, and in order to ensure there is a better tomorrow for all is the international non-profit organization which goes by the name of Sea Shephard Conservation Society (SSCS), whose aim it is to conserve and protect ecosystems and species within all the world’s oceans by battling to absolutely tragic and unnecessary destruction of our marine wildlife.
