Join us in making a photo pledge to change ONE thing in your life for a healthier ocean

I promise to ditch “disposable” plastic bags for #WorldOceansDay!

Alyssa Isakower, World Oceans Day Coordinator

We can’t wait to see what you’re doing – or planning to do – to help the ocean. You can make a sign with your promise, or just take a photo of yourself somewhere special! Just mention your promise in the text of your post.

We want everyone to get involved! Don’t have a way to share your photo? Just email it to us and we’ll do the rest.
