- by caring for our oceans:
A simple thing, everyone can do, is to cut back on the amount of throw-away-plastic stuff you use. This can be done by bringing bags with you when shopping or just avoiding using a plastic straw when you have a cool drink. It all helps to prevent discard-able plastic items ending up in the sea and harming marine life. Keeping the sea clear of litter and pollution, helps protect penguins.
