Hey, everybody! It's Daisy, here! I'm here to talk to you about what you can do to help keep the ocean clean. The ocean is our home, and it's home to plenty of other creatures too - like whales, dolphins, rays, and sharks. There are a lot of things that threaten our ocean home, including icky oil spills, left over fishing nets, and tons of plastic. If you've read our first book, you've seen just how dangerous some of these things can be! Luckily there are plenty of things we can all do to help keep our ocean clean!
One of the biggest problems ocean creatures like myself face is plastic. It can easily be mistaken as food or tangle us up. To keep plastic from reaching the ocean, it is very important that we recycle old water or juice bottles. Bamboo toothbrushes are a great alternative to plastic brushes. Also, using reusable canvas bags when you go shopping can cut back on plastic usage a ton!
If we all work together to clean up after ourselves, to reuse where we can, and to recycle whenever possible, we can have our beaches and ocean clean in no time, making it healthier and happier for all of us ocean animals! Plus, if the beaches are clean, they're more comfortable and fun for humans too!
