World Oceans Day is an international observance that’s recognized by the United Nations and commemorated at aquariums, zoos, schools and conservation organizations across the globe. The theme for this year is Healthy oceans, healthy planet. Did you know that plastic trash is choking our ocean, and 80% of it comes from land. As part of World Oceans Day, you can take the challenge: promise not take any disposable plastic bags for a whole year. Take a better bag instead!
