5 Ways to Help Our Ocean

  1. Reduce your waste and always throw away your trash in a trash bin. Recycle!
  2. Fish responsibly and follow the “catch and release” practices.
  3. Dispose of any trash that you see on the side of the street
  4. Secure your trash bins when you know a storm is coming or put your trash bin in a covered area.
  5. Conserve your water so that less wastewater will flow back into the ocean.

Change is not easy but helping our environment starts with awareness.
