World Oceans Day

Today is “World Oceans Day!”. The conservation action focus for 2017 is “Encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future”.

Coastal waters support a rich marine biodiversity, which can be harmed or even killed by marine litter, especially plastic. Therefore reducing our daily consumption of plastic products can help to protect our marine habitats and species.
To help achieve this a number of organisations are joining “No Straw Day” and encouraging people to say “no” to straws when ordering drinks.

Masarang HK supports “No Straw Day” and will also be reducing the consumption of plastic wherever possible. We ask that you take part in beach clean ups whenever possible.

We would love to hear what you/your school is doing to reduce plastic consumption on World Oceans Day!
