World Oceans Day June 8, Oceans Week June 1-8
Reducing Your “Carbon Footprint” so you can make a difference. Oceans give us 80% of our oxygen, Trees give us 20% of our oxygen. Oceans also provide us with food, medicine, jobs and recreation.
Each of us makes a footprint on our world. It is up to us to make sure our footprint is small which is good.
If we damage plants or animals we are making a bad footprint. If we help plants and animals our footprint is good.
If we damage (pollute) our water we are making a bad footprint. If we help keep our water clean our footprint is good.
If we waste water we are making a bad footprint. If we help save (conserve) water our footprint is good. If we waste electricity we are making a bad footprint.
If we make a good footprint we are making a good (positive) difference and can become an OCEAN HERO.
