If a 30 gallon bucket were to represent all of the water in the world, only 8 drops of it would actually be available to sustain human life. Billions of dollars every year go in to keeping it that way. Many species of marine life depend on that other 29 some odd gallons.
Over the last 50 years, we have produced more trash than the entire history of the world before it. What doesn’t end up in the landfill ends up on the ground, in our rivers and eventually our oceans.
One of the most shameful human achievements is a trash island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that is twice the size of Texas and is now visible from the coast of California. At the rate we are going, many species of ocean life will be gone in the next 30 years. The effect on our ecosystem will be catastrophic. I wish I were making this stuff up, but I’m not. Google it. So, I want to do something about it and I hope you will join me. For every gig Ocean Breeze Entertainment plays, 10% of the profits are donated to The North Carolina Coastal Federation Marine Debris program.
Individual actions make a very small impact, but together, we can all make a big difference. Thanks for reading.
