World Oceans Day is celebrated each year on the 8th of June. It aims to raise the profile of our oceans and how they connect us all.

The initiative began in 2002 in recognition of our ocean and its importance in our lives. It is a day to reflect on the current state of our oceans and how each of us can do our bit to protect it, no matter where we live.

Plastic pollution is causing immense harm to the world’s oceans and sea life. It is a growing concern with estimations that there will be more plastics in the ocean than fish by 2050.

The EU has come together to tackle the issue of plastics.

New rules will ban single-use plastics by 2021 but it needs everyone’s support.

It is important that we note and promote initiatives like World Ocean Day because together, we need to engage in more sustainable production and consumption practices.

World Oceans Day is a continuing action that needs to be embraced year-round. It is our responsibility to protect and restore the ocean. It is an amazing resource that we all depend on.

Working together, we make a difference. It is the processes that we adopt today that will help us to protect the health of our people and planet.

There is no better place to begin than with our ocean, which is critical to our survival. As it is the ocean that:

  • generates most of the oxygen we breathe
  • helps feed us
  • regulates our climate
  • cleans the water we drink
  • offers a pharmacopoeia of medicines

Remember making the smallest changes this World Oceans Day will have a huge impact.

This year Clenli Direct gave each of our team members a reusable bottle and cup. By the end of the year, this initiative will omit the use of 22,620 plastic bottles and 18,850 disposable cups.

We also partnered with a forward-thinking company named Tersano.

Tersano has made a ground-breaking industry advancement with the development of an aqueous ozone dispensing unit. It is the first in history with the ability to generate stabilized aqueous ozone (SAO).

The system converts ordinary tap water into a chemical-free sanitizer and powerful cleaner. Tersano is a driving force for sustainability in the cleaning industry and it is having a positive impact on our oceans.

A simple switch to Tersano removes single-use plastics associated with traditional cleaning chemicals and prevents chemical waste from entering our waterways.

Clenli Direct has already helped many of our clients to switch to sustainable cleaning.  Talk to us today to find out more about reducing your environmental impact.
