The health of our water is at stake. Our Ocean and waterways are continually polluted by single-use items, discarded fishing gear and other plastics of all kinds. These items leach toxic chemicals into the water we drink and into the Ocean that many creatures call home. When trash, litter and other types of pollution are not disposed of correctly they emit methane gas - a contributor to climate change. They also impact living organisms in our Ocean which help reduce carbon. As these items fill our Ocean and waterways, animals get tangled in them and/or mistake them for food which threatens food chains and effects the health of our water. All One Ocean is at the forefront of changing this through education and providing simple everyday solutions that everyone can be part of.
All One Ocean’s mission is to educate our communities about the destructive impact of litter on our Ocean and waterways and provide simple, sustainable and effective ways to reduce litter.
Healthy water for all is our end goal. We rely on it for drinking water, food, agriculture and recreational activities, to name a few. Animals rely on it for survival. Our water - whether it is through waterways or in our ocean - is facing challenges from pollution. This pollution is capable of harming all of us, while also contributing to climate change. We believe that through education and simple daily acts of environmental consciousness, we can get closer to our goal. By educating our youth, we will create a new generation of environmental leaders who will grow up knowing that there is nothing normal about a plastic-choked Ocean and lead us in changing behaviors, making it possible for everyone to have healthy water.
