On Tuesdays we volunteer at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The aquarium's mission is to inspire conservation of the world's oceans. We see thousands of people from all over the world come through this site and our hope and our goal is to instill that mission into their lives as well.
The climate is changing and the oceans are warming and becoming more acidic. Whether we live on the coast or mid-continent this will affect all of our lives and the lives of our descendants. To view this problem globally is overwhelming to the majority of us. It leaves some of us feeling helpless and powerless.
So, what can we do? Small changes.
We chose our shift at the aquarium to coincide with the Tuesday farmers' market in downtown Monterey. It saves a trip into town. We use our own re-useable bags at the market and for all of our shopping. We use re-useable mugs and water bottles. These are the little things that most people could do.
Make a change and encourage someone else to change as well. One change at a time.In bocca al lupo.
