Hello everyone, welcome to World Oceans Day at Doberman's by the Sea. The challenge and giveaway remain open through midnight tonight. The winner will be announced tomorrow. To enter the challenge visit here. Is everyone wearing blue today?
As you might have figured out by now World Oceans Day is to raise awareness for the oceans and to help preserve them and keep them looking beautiful like this:
Everyone can do their part to help the oceans-reuse, repurpose, and recycle. This is something that we blogger's are pretty good at. We always look for creative ways to reuse stuff. If your community has a recycling program, take advantage of it. Use shopping bags made out of fabric, not plastic. And if you take only one thing away from this today it is don't litter:
You'd be surprised what people leave behing at the beach or throw overboard. Over the past two years we have picked up clothing, towels, shoes, dishes, transformer toys, sand toys, life rings and vests, trash, cigarette butts, buyois, fishing ankers and bobers and what have you from our local beach. We need to be environmentally responsible and teach the children to do the same. They are our future.
Here is a web site that shows you how to make homemade, natural cleaners and beauty products. They compile a wealth of information, it is worth checking out. You can also hop on over to my friend Rhonda's blog, she is having a party today, too. And you can always visit the World Oceans Day web site for additional information and kid activities and educational material. Click on the Wear blue photo to get there.
