Oceans cover over 71% of the earth’s surface and contain the highest percentage of biodiversity on the planet. They are vital for life but are in a critical state.

They provide livelihoods to countless fishermen and others around the world. They also feed hundreds of millions of people and have the capacity to provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day. Unfortunately, the oceans are in trouble — scientists report that the amount of fish caught from the oceans began declining — for the first time in recorded history — just a few decades ago.

Beach clean-up day

August morning has always started with rain and it feels so good. This tapping sound on the roof and windows makes me happy, especially in the night and early mornings. When it’s stormy, I hear the trees moving and when I sit on the ground of the terrace part, which is built on poles, I even feel the ground shaking a bit. Before, on stormy days, we heard wild sea noises, now we hear the sounds of trees tapping on the roof and boughs moving in the wind. We live in the middle of nature and witness all whims of nature in our home more than ever.

Yesterday we have joined a beach clean initiated by Oceana, which hundreds of volunteers have gathered here to help cleaning up plastics scattered across the entire North Sea coast.

Within hardly an hour we found heaps of cigarette butts, plastic parts and other trash between the sand. It’s great that we have met a young woman who is an activist who joined many other “plastic free” initiatives that currently exist and spreads the message to the people around her. We have also met families who brought their children to join this great event away from their school work. At the end we have picked up tones of trash including plastic bowls, papers, old clothes and even rusted metals!

Obviously these are things we have “given’ to the oceans for decades and the ocean has returned to us. It’s time to say bye to plastic, and save our beautiful oceans.
