About Us

This site is built to raise awareness about saving the ocean due to the rise in water contamination around the world.

Facts

  • Over 1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 5,000 people die each day due to dirty drinking water.
  • 14 billion pounds of garbage are dumped into the ocean every year. Most of it is plastic.
  • Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year.
  • People who live in places with high levels of air pollutants have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer than people who live in less-polluted areas.
  • Recycling and composting prevented 85 million tons of material away from being disposed of in 2010, up from 18 million tons in 1980.
  • You can help

  • Conserve water by turning off the tap when running water is not necessary. This helps prevent water shortages and reduces the amount of contaminated water that needs treatment.
  • Don’t throw paints, oils or other forms of litter down the drain.
  • Take great care not to overuse pesticides and fertilisers. This will prevent runoffs of the material into nearby water sources.
  • By having more plants in your garden you are preventing fertiliser, pesticides and contaminated water from running off into nearby water sources.
  • Don’t throw litter into rivers, lakes or oceans.
  • Help identify, report and stop polluters. Join a local clean water or environmental group that monitors industries and sewage treatment plants that are discharging wastes.
  • Help clean up any litter you see on beaches or in rivers and lakes, make sure it is safe to collect the litter and put it in a nearby dustbin.
