The Earth Conscious Way / MCSUK

World Ocean Day June 2020

 

Today is #WorldOceanDay! 🌊 and we want to send a big thank you to all our wonderful Earth Conscious customers who have helped to contribute a whopping £20,000 through donations to the Marine Conservation Society here in the UK.

The Marine Conservation Society works hard to protect our seas, shores, and wildlife and we are delighted to be able to play a small part in helping them carry out such important work.

What's more that's £20k SO FAR. For every one of our natural, plastic-free deodorants sold and of course our Baby Balm we will continue to donate 10p to them. It really does add up! Giving back and doing what we can is important to us, it's part of what we can do together to make a difference.

Of course, if you want to discover how else you might help you can check out their website, maybe even get prepared for this year's Plastic Free July challenge? https://www.mcsuk.org/how-you-can-help/

To round off with some vitamin sea from this beautiful beach we are so lucky to enjoy here on the Isle of Wight. This one was taken just a week ago in Sandown when our family managed to fit in some much needed Beach Therapy. We were the only ones on that particular stretch of beach, weird I know but hey it's Covid-19. BC of course there would be many more people out enjoying the space. Oh and spot the ships in the video, I would imagine 3 or 4 miles out to sea, anchored and waiting to return to some kind of new normal.

STOP THE PLASTIC TIDE

STOP THE PLASTIC TIDE

Finally, I found the time to read my copy of the MCSUK winter 2017 edition magazine and it leaves me feeling inspired to do more to raise awareness concerning the issues surrounding litter and plastic pollution of our seas.

Alongside colourful photography and stories of sea life, the MCS have included the results from their Great British Beach Clean 2017. Plastic and Polystyrene pieces were the top most found items. In second place, packets such as crisps and sandwich packets. The list goes on to include Glass, Cigarette Stubs, Caps & Lids, String, Cord, Wet Wipes, Cotton Bud Sticks, Fishing Line, Cutlery, Trays & Straws.

The way in which we humans consume is clearly showing up in our oceans and on our shores. Grabbing items on the go, purchasing cheap and more frequently all equates to a disposable lifestyle which creates excessive waste and pollution. Single use items are often used and disposed of within minutes and even seconds without thought as to what happens next. We need to re-look at the way we live and we need to start valuing and caring for our possessions giving consideration to the impact of our overall consumption.
