THIS IS HOW GO GREEN CELEBRATED THE WORLD OCEANS DAY x Dressel Divers

On our birthdays we blow out the candles. On Valentine’s Day there’s always chocolate. And on Thanksgiving we feast and appreciate what we have. It could not be any other way, so on a special day such as the World Ocean Day, we did a special dive. For that reason, Go Green invited all those divers committed to the environment nearby our Playa del Carmen dive center to participate in this celebration.

The importance of corals reef for the Caribbean ecosystem and it delicate balance was discussed during the briefing. They also talked about the harmful effects of human activity, climate change and the increase in pollution; without forgetting behavior guidelines on how to reduce our footprint on the planet.

Together We Can Event

They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans. They are a major source of food and medicines and a critical part of the biosphere. In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.

Place; Asset Training Centre , Madurai 

Event date : June 6  2019 

Expect Participants : More than 250 from all over & different districts of Tamil Nadu 

The following Message  distribute in read materials to participants on the day of event :   

The oceans make our blue planet unique in our solar system -- and not just visually.  They help regulate the global climate and are the ultimate source of the water that sustains all life on Earth, from coral reefs to snow-covered mountains, from tropical rain forests to mighty rivers, and even deserts.  However, the ability of the oceans to provide their essential services is being threatened by climate change, pollution and unsustainable use.  On this World Oceans Day, we are highlighting the problem of plastic pollution.  Eighty per cent of all pollution in the sea comes from land, including some 8 million tons of plastic waste each year.  It chokes waterways, harms communities that depend on fishing and tourism, kills turtles and birds, whales and dolphins, and finds its way to the most remote areas of the planet and throughout the food chain on which we ultimately rely.  Unless we change course, plastic waste could soon outweigh all the fish in the oceans.We must work individually and collectively to stop this preventable tragedy and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, including plastic.  Action starts at home, and speaks louder than words.  The United Nations aims to lead by example, and more than 30 of our agencies have now begun working to end the use of single-use plastic. But everyone needs to play a part.  You can make a difference today – and every day -- by doing simple things like carrying your own water bottle, coffee cup and shopping bags, recycling the plastic you buy, avoiding products that contain microplastics and volunteering for a local clean-up.If we all do a little, our combined actions can be massive.  On this World Oceans Day, I urge governments, communities and individuals alike to celebrate our oceans by helping clear them of pollution and ensure they remain vibrant for generations to come.

Together We Can. Reduce Plastic Waste.

塑膠,這一兩年非常火紅的環保議題,會如此受到全世界關注,是因為問題真的非常嚴重。根據「世界海洋日」官方網站公布的資料,從1950年代以來,人類已製造83億公噸的塑膠,一年生產的塑膠重量相當於全人類的體重總和,如今海裡的塑膠微粒數量,比銀河系的星星還要多,如果我們再不減少塑膠產量,2050年塑膠垃圾量將大於全球魚類總重量。

合橫國小就位在海的旁邊,三年來全校師生盡心盡力持續的淨灘,並且從課程中學習如何愛護海洋環境。在今年的「世界海洋日」,我們要發起一個活動。利用我們的力量向所有來到澎湖遊玩的觀光客宣導我們的理念。希望大家從生活中改變,能夠一起減少塑膠製品的使用。對海洋的環境做出真正的改變。#togetherwecan

TrashBash Cleanup Hout Bay

Join the Two Oceans Aquarium Trash Bash on World Oceans Day. We want to do more to tackle plastic pollution in our waterways… And we want YOU to join us.

On Saturday 8 June 2019, the Trash Bash cleanup will take place at Hout Bay beach - let's help clean up our coastline!

Apart from being good for the environment, cleanups are also good for us humans. Anyone who’s spent a morning with us on a beach to pick up plastic pollution knows that it’s actually a chance to have a ball, to spend time with friends and family, to breathe in some fresh air and feel the sand between our toes, and to leave a slightly better, slightly more informed person.

  • Date: 8 June 2019
  • Time: 09h00 to 11h00
  • Location: Hout Bay beach
  • What to bring: Sunblock, a hat, water (in a reusable bottle), and reusable gloves (like the ones you’d use for gardening or doing dishes).

The Two Oceans Aquarium Trash Bash receives the support and assistance from the amazing Beach Co-op, a non-profit organisation driving change in single-use plastic through integrated surveys and research-ready beach cleanups. It’s great to have this wonderful organisation on board!

Aside from the obvious perks of doing a beach cleanup, Trash Bash also contributes to important scientific research by following the Dirty Dozen data collection method.

The Dirty Dozen are the 12 litter items that are most commonly found on our beaches. These are: Carrier bags, chip packets, cigarette lighters, cooldrink bottles, cooldrink lids, earbuds, fishing line, lightsticks, plastic lollipop sticks, straws, sweet wrappers and water bottles.
