Eight Ways You Can Help Save Our Oceans

Last Friday, we celebrated Earth Day with a Plastiki book signing with Revo Sunglasses at Paragon Sports in New York City. Many of the 50+ guests lined up well in advance to meet author David de Rothschild.

Leading up to the big day, we shared daily tips from the book on how to save the oceans on Twitter. In case you missed ‘em, here are eight easy things you can do:

• Reduce your carbon footprint by running errands on foot, by bike, or on public transit.
• Every gallon of water you use comes from a natural ecosystem, so keep your shower singing brief!
• Lower the thermostat, save a mollusk (and you’ll save money too).
• Could you live without plastic? See myplasticfreelife.com for tips to keep plastic out of our oceans.
• Support a local car wash: they clean & reuse water instead of sending it down the storm drain.
• Hankering for halibut? Make sure your dinner menu is sustainable at montereybayaquarium.org.
• Save our oceans: Refuse single-use plastics! Start by switching to a reusable water bottle.
• Let the fish do something else for Fish Free Friday.

If you retweeted any of the daily tips with the hash tag #plastiki between 4/13-4/22, stay tuned! We’ll be contacting the two lucky winners of the Plastiki prize packs pictured below soon!

    In California, water run-off is a big concern in regards to our oceans. As a mobile car detailing business owner, we have the ability to capture and dispose of our water through the use of detailing mats that contain all the water run-off. While most cities and counties have ordinances in place to prohibit water run-off, it largely still remains an ordinance most cities cannot enforce, and must be self compliant. While this is a hassle for these small businesses of mobile detailing, it is a better way for the greater good of community and is a viable way to save our oceans.
