    Isn’t it amazing what the last century has done to our planet? Just devastating. We need to consume less and stop being lazy and cheap. Use green industrial supplies, recycle and take lessons from Africans about reusing. They’ve got it down to a science.

    The ocean is in serious trouble. Less than 1% of our beautiful blue planet is protected in marine reserves. The Coral Sea is an intact healthy sea in the tropics between Australia and New Caledonia. The Australian Government is thinking of protecting it in a marine park. What a great idea!
