The human connection to water is irrefutable. Very few experiences are as special to us as watching ocean waves crash onto beaches, or as hearing the sounds of a stream nearby. We are drawn to the beauty of waterfalls and the atmosphere of lakes surrounded by flora.

Though we love these sources of life, we often take them for granted. People overlook or fail to act upon the issues of plastics on beaches, styrofoam in the beds of streams, and straws and other man-made trash consumed by marine life.

For the protection of marine life, for the bodies of water themselves, and for the health of the planet- we must do more and we must do better.
