World Oceans Day

Take Action this World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day

This World Oceans Day, people from around the globe are inspired to take action, reduce plastic waste and protect our beautiful blue planet. 

Thousands of participants are choosing to refuse single-use plastics, reducing the plastic pollution that ends up in our waterways.

By 2050, it is estimated there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We have a chance to turn the tide on plastic in our oceans.

By helping more people discover alternatives to plastic, we can make a difference to the health of our ocean and our planet.

A gift for our ocean’s future

The ocean is a precious and beautiful resource that we need to protect for future generations. 

Today, June 8th, is United Nations World Oceans Day, and it’s a day of celebration, appreciation and recognition. Observing World Oceans Day, and encouraging others to join in, is about raising awareness of the many threats that our oceans face and inspiring others to take action and to become part of the solution.
