Year of the Reef and Earth Day 2018
Megan White, Project AWARE Communications Specialist
We have much to celebrate this Earth Day, April 22!! A growing number of people all over the world are changing their attitudes and behaviours towards plastic. Recognizing how harmful plastic is to marine life and fragile ecosystems, people are taking actions, fins on and fins off, to see a significant reduction in plastic waste and stop the ugly journey of our trash. 2018 is also the third International Year of the Reef! With new evidence showing that the human population’s obsession with all things plastic is also poisoning coral reefs, the growing movement for a world without plastic pollution gives us hope.
