Here Are 6 Ways to Celebrate Our Oceans This World Oceans Day

By

Earlier this week, on Wednesday, June 5, people all over the world observed the United Nations' World Environment Day. And tomorrow, Saturday, June 8, the United Nations is hosting another holiday that supports the planet: World Oceans Day. In honor of the annual holiday, here are six ways you can do something nice for the ocean — as well as a breakdown of why the oceans need a little TLC right now.

According to the World Oceans Day website, the holiday aims to join together people from all over the planet to honor the ocean, "which connects us all." The holiday aims to spread awareness as to how we can protect the ocean. As the website explains, healthy oceans are critical to a healthy planet and to healthy people, because oceans do so much more for us than we realize. Oceans produce oxygen for us to breathe, regulate our climate, clean the water we drink, provide ingredients for medicines, and more.
