Make a splash and come celebrate WORLD OCEANS DAY with us. We're in holiday mode here at Peep HQ, returning refreshed from a spell at the beautiful Welsh coast. 

Our country is full of idyllic coastal resorts, made special by one thing.. our ocean. Being surrounded by water brings a sense of calm and wellbeing. I become more obsessed each year in my quest for the perfect alfresco sea view. It got me thinking about the need to to preserve this beauty and what we can do to #saveourseas

save our seas

Plastic is becoming a serious problem for all our seas...

80% of all pollution in the ocean comes from people on land.

8 million tonnes of plastic per year ends up in the ocean, wreaking havoc on wildlife, fisheries and tourism.

Plastic pollution costs the lives of seabirds and marine mammals every year.

Fish eat plastic, and we eat the fish.

Healthy Oceans, Healthy Us

A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival. Every year, World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity to honor, protect, and conserve our world’s shared ocean.

Our ocean is so important it...

Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
Helps feed us
Regulates our climate
Cleans the water we drink
Offers a pharmacopoeia of medicines
Provides limitless inspiration

change gonna come

It has to. So what can we do?

Ditch the plastic.

Use less and recycle the plastic you must use. 

Go for alternatives like glass and metal.

Go vintage - a little make-do-a-mend - they had to, but now we need to;

 reduce, reuse and recycle

Use these hashtags on social to spread the word and help clean up our ocean: #WorldOceansDay #SaveOurOcean
