The Weight of The World

Future generations need us to act now!

This a photo series that I took last week while cleaning the beach with my children. There have been many times in my life that I’ve tried to spread awareness to people that just didn’t want to hear it. When I say ” plastic pollution is a major problem and we may lose most of the marine life in the oceans by 2048″, the response is usually ” I don’t eat fish anyway”, or “I’ll be old by then, it’s not my problem”. That may be true, however there is so  much more to it than that. The oceans are in serious trouble and it will still affect you, even if you don’t eat fish. I’m working on a book right now that dives deeper into these issues and how they will affect all of us in our daily lives.

“With every drop of water you drink, every breathe you take, you are connected to the sea, no matter where on Earth you live.” Dr. Sylvia Earle
