For summer, show the ocean a little love

(Original list from Sportdiver magazine).

Great little guideline for the summer at the beach or in the water. Help preserve the ocean and reduce plastic waste… diver or not.

  1. Help make “paper or plastic?” an irrelevant question by bringing reusable cloth bags to the stores where you shop.
  2. Cut down on needless waste by refusing plastic straws, single service packaging and other plastic items that you can do without.
  3. Do you start your day with a cup of coffee? Make it at home or ask your coffee-shop server to pour it in a reusable mug.
  4. Next time you hit the beach, apply oxybenzone-free sunscreen to avoid releasing chemicals in the ocean that are harmful to coral reefs.
  5. When you get takeout for lunch avoid plastic cutlery by using reusable utensils you keep in your bag or at your desk.
  6. Turn your next dive into a conservation campaign. Project AWARE makes it east to give back with debris cleanups, fundraisers and more.
