SAVE THE PLANET


Video from Alisons Adventures

We are destroying our most valuable resource on earth!

The human body can only survive 4 days without water. We live on a planet made up of 71% water but only 2.5% is fresh, and of that 2.5% only 0.065% is available for human consumption - yet every moment that fresh water source is under threat by pollutants introduced by the people who need it most: us.

 Alison's - The trash I’m paddling through is directly over the gorgeous fresh water caves, or Cenotes, along the Riviera Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
When it rains the toxins from the trash seep through the extremely pores limestone and directly in the one of our last fresh water source on earth. This trash was simply placed out of site as it is done it most places all over the world - destroying one of the most beautiful destinations on earth.

THE SOLUTION:
As a planet we can prevent this by:
1. Reducing fossil fuel emissions
2. Reducing plastic production
4. turn to green energy to run factories and cars.
5. shifting to solar power for electricity
6. Grow organic food and practice regernative agriculture and composting

As individuals:
1. Refuse single use plastic like water bottles
2. Ride a bike to work or take public transport
3. Turn off lights in a room when you are not in the room OR switch to a solar power grid.
4. Compost your food scraps instead of throwing them in the garbage.
5. Travel to eco minded resorts and use Raw Elements sunscreen that does not kill the reef
6. Get involved in community organizations and non profits that are working to change environmental laws.
