In April 2019, Gary wrote the 4th in a Series of Blogs on Surfing: ‘Make Mine a Glenmorangie Neat, Water Back.’ In it he highlighted the commendable work being done by 4Ocean – Andrew and Alex’s epic quest to clean the world’s oceans of plastics.

Yesterday I received an email from Julia at SnorkelsandFins.com, a website advocating ‘Ocean Friendly Snorkeling,’ who had read our blog and wondered if we might link to her article on plastics’ threat to the oceans and what you can do about it. This is, indeed, ‘one of the most in-depth articles about how plastics are expected to outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050 and what we can do about the plastics problem in our daily lives.’ Julia Wilburn
I highly recommend that you read this article and take it very seriously. Yes, we can help save the world!
- Reduce Plastic Use
- Help Clean the Trash
- Reuse & Recycle
‘With plastics threatening to outweigh the fish in the ocean, the situation can easily get out of hand and result in a catastrophe. Gathering all garbage from the waters is hard, but all it takes is a small behavioral change to reduce the accumulation of waste.
The future of this planet, the wellbeing of our wildlife, and ultimately our wellbeing as a species is in our hands.
Whether you decide to use less plastic items or not is down to you, but remember that using plastics and disposing of them improperly could mean much more than a dead fish or seagull. It could potentially mean our extinction.’ snorkelsandfins
