World Oceans Day 2016

Apparently National Donut Day isn't the only holiday I'm celebrating late this year.  I also didn't realize today was World Oceans Day until the 11th hour, literally.  However, this entry will post when it's still June 8 between Chicago and the International Date Line, so I haven't completely missed it.

I begin this year's observance with 2016 World Oceans Day Focuses on Eliminating Plastic Pollution from News Beat Social.

This year's World Oceans Day (June 8) urges individuals and organizations to help keep plastic out of the planet's seas.
For a calmer message, The Weather Channel shared We Celebrate World Oceans Day.

Today we celebrate #WorldOceansDay, their beauty and vital role they play in weather and climate around the world, let's keep them clean.
For more about plastics in the ocean, I recommend clicking on the links to entries about the Pacific Garbage Patch, banning plastic bags, and shoes from marine plastic.  Happy World Oceans Day!
