Dear influencers,

When we look at the near future, it's not looking good for our oceans.

If things don’t change, in just 30 years, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans, and coral reefs might disappear completely by then.

What if we told you that we could reverse this? If every Toluna Influencer picks up one piece of plastic, together we can clean up over 26 million pieces of plastic!

Whenever you see a piece of rubbish on a beach or in your city, it doesn't take much effort to throw it into a bin or to recycle it.

What are your tips for cleaning up the ocean? Show us what you do to protect our oceans.

Create a topic on the community with #PlantYourFuture in your title, letting us know your tips and tricks, the best ones will receive points! You have until September 22nd to complete.

1st place: 10 000 points

2nd place: 5000 points

3rd place: 3000 points

Influence your world,

Toluna Team

Honestly the only thing that can be done is to raise more money. More businesses should ask customers paying at the register if theyd like to donate the spare change/round up to the next dollar after purchase price to recycling efforts. Example: Buying something for $2.60 and then asking if they want to round the total to $3.00 so that $.40 goes to charity. Ive seen some fast food restaurants and even Hollister use this techique and I have found myself always donating. Getting rid of some change doesnt seem like much to ask so its likely more people will do it and it will definitely start adding up and hopefully help clean up efforts.

Start with becoming informed of the sources of all this plastic. Why is it ending up in our ocean? Next is to find out who is responsible for it ending up in the ocean and IMMEDIATELY STOP ANY FURTHER SUCH POLLUTIONS AT ONCE! NO MATTER WHAT!! AT ALL COSTS. THEN COME AT THE PERPETRATORS WITH GIGANTIC FINES OF UNHEARD OF PROPORTIONS AND IMMEDIATE ARRESTS OF PERSONS INVOLVED IN THE ACTUAL ACT OF PLACING SAID PLASTIC INTO OUR OCEAN WATERS (is; vessel crew members, equipment operators, or ANYONE.RESPONSIBLE FOR INTENTIONAL POLLUTING THE OCEAN AND BRING FINES OF EPIC PROPORTIONS AS WELL AS JAIL TIME. THEN FIND OUT WHO THE CEO’S AND OTHER SUITS THAT ORDER OR ALLOW FOR THEIR COMPANIES TK BE INVOLVED IN THIS CRAP AND PUT THEM IN PRISON
THIS HAS TO.BE ENFORCED WITH EXTREME AGGRESSIVENESS!!!
FINALLY ONCE ITS DETERMINED WHO IS THE MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS ON TOL OF FINES AND PRISON THEY MUST IMMIDIATELY START REMOVING PLASTIC BY ALL MEANS NECESSARY UNGIO THE PROBLEM IS NO MORE!!!
My two cents

The future for the oceans are bleak because humans are destroying the oceans with plastic and other toxic materials today. But mankind in general is not the solution to the problem. The bible says at Revelation 11:18," Jehovah God is going to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.". I look forward to that time period, but in the meantime, everyone should take a part in cleaning up the oceans by recycling plastic bottles and other materials made of plastic.

We must classify garbage in waste sites and we must clean beaches and parks.

Many times very sophisticated plans do not give positive results because citizens in general do not want to complicate with waste. The simplest steps to start a real change are: Strengthening awareness campaigns in all social networks and media, incentive to recycle and classify garbage in all places and organize all weekends in different biblical places, cleaning days.

The millions of tons of rubbish on the world's beaches is a problem comparable to the millions of tons of toxic chemicals being released by the US military, oil companies, ships, farms, septic tanks, drains, and a myriad of other polluters. The biggest problem w/plastics is that most of our recycled waste is NOT being recycled. First and foremost, only clean containers can be recycled. Rinse or wash, if necessary.
And other countries do not want our garbage. We must learn how to develop better and safer alternatives (to plastic, for one), and reduce waste through conservation and strict regulations. We thought the hole in the ozone was solved, until we learned that east Chinese companies were emitting ozone-destroying chemicals.

I was living in key west almost all the straws were paper. On the middle of the island there are still some places with plastic straws and almost all of the drains are leading to the ocean. This is not simply enough. We all need to play our part. In helping out mother earth by recycling and helping pick up after one another. We should install filters in these drains that lead to the ocean.

Must #plantourfuture by people starting to CARE about our océans
and seafood. The seas are a vital part of the earth. If everyone would put h in by supporting those that run the ships that do the cleaning, and come up with a biodegradable container for cokes,, drinks, etc... we would be so much better off.
