There has been a call that has filtered through the near impenetrable wall of my studies for the board. There are some good folks out there dedicated to cleaning up the plastic out of our oceans and they are pushing an awareness day on June 8th. The challenge is to go the whole day without plastic. Their website is here, and they have good simple suggestions like foregoing water bottles, skipping plastic bags, but I’m sure that if you are visiting this blog regularly you can take it further. And you probably already do all of the basics, right? The images of the oil spill in the gulf are so devastating, so constant, so unfathomable, and the oil is still leaking. Week after week. So a day without plastic seems like a tangible action and I’m grateful for the hand up this group has offered.
