The protection of the ocean starts with little things

We often think that we have to live or be near the ocean to protect it, but 80% of the waste found in the seas, the ocean and the coasts comes from inland. Each one of us, at our own level, is able to change our consciousness and to engage our friends, our family, our classmates for a transition towards a more respectful way of life. 

Is waste the first predator of the oceans? 

Plastic is a real scourge for aquatic environments and for all the biodiversity present! Macro-waste or plastic micro-particles, today a large majority of the species living in the ocean and on the coasts are victims of plastic pollution. 

Reducing plastic consumption is actively participating in the protection of marine ecosystems.
