Ocean Conservancy a Christmas story...
Let's remember our Oceans this holiday season,
Let's recycle our trash, say no thanks to straws, plastic stirrers, plastic bags, plastic bottles, and their caps, which all are among the top five trash items found in our oceans...
The tree decorations are inspired by the global initiative to foster a sustainable ocean economy, a commission by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in DC.
I and my inspiring crew of volunteer fish makers - About 300 school children and another 50 neighbors, friends and wonderful volunteers ranging from two to eighty, in DC, Rockville, and Gaithersburg all hope for less waste and more beauty in the world this holiday season!
