80% of the waste in the sea comes from the land. Pollution is harmful to the health of marine species and humans. By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. Plastic has become the biggest enemy of marine species and affects both society and the economy in general. Well, the ocean regulates the climate, provides food and oxygen, having a polluted sea is like having a sick planet. Here are 10 tips to take care of the ocean.

It is important to reduce the effects of climate change on the ocean. By public transport, cycling or walking, instead of driving car. Be aware of energy consumption at home, workplaces and try to reduce it.
Plastics are the main cause for the habitat destruction and the death of thousands of marine animals each year. Reusing water bottles, storing food in non-disposable containers, using cloth bags to transport our purchases are options to reduce their use.
Avoid buying items such as coral jewelry, hair accessories made with shells (from hawksbill turtles), and shark products. Well, these can affect coral reefs and marine populations.
Support anti-pollution organizations to protect marine habitat and wildlife. This support can be economic or could also be voluntary.
If you play sports or do activities in the water, don't throw anything overboard. If you're planning a cruise for your next vacation, choose the option that's most environmentally friendly.
When shopping or dining out, help reduce the demand for overexploited species, be careful and aware of species that are banned.
Many fish are rapidly depleting due to demand, loss of habitat and unsustainable fishing practices.
If you like scuba diving, surfing, or relaxing on the beach, it is important to leave the place clean and pick up the trash when leaving the place.
Beware of the prominent seafood we give to our pets. Let's read product labels and consider product sustainability when buying.
Conduct research on the ocean policy of public officials prior to elections or contact their local representatives to let them know that they support marine conservation projects.
All life on Earth is connected to the ocean and its inhabitants. The more informed you are about the problems facing this vital system, the more you will want to help ensure its protection and inspire others to do the same.
Being aware of this great problem afflicting the planet and helping with small changes in our daily lives could be a great change for the sea and maritime life.
