Children aim to fix adult created catastrophe

To the Editor;

Every year over 10 million tons of plastics end up in our oceans directly, and through rivers and lakes flowing to our oceans.

By 2050 there will be more plastics than fish in our oceans reports the World Economic Forum.

Causing a slow painful death plastics kill birds, fish, dolphins and sharks.

Fishing line, nets, traps, cigarette buts and other garbage add to the problems in our rivers, lakes and our oceans.

Oceana reports “Recycling won’t end this disaster: a meager nine per cent of all the plastic ever produced has been recycled.”

Children around the world become an Ocean Hero before World Oceans Day June 8, they are determined to turn this adult caused problem around and are studying on the World Oceans Day Education and Adopt A Shoreline websites. Learn more at: www.WorldOceansDayEducation.org and www.AdoptAShoreline.org

World Oceans Day is June 8th, World Oceans Week is June 1 to 8.

We do not seek or accept donations.
