World Oceans Day

One is not born into the world to do everything but to do something. – Henry David Thoreau

Friday, June 8th is World Oceans Day, reminding us that we all need to do our part to reduce the plastic we use, and to always practice good environmental stewardship!  As boaters, the ocean is our backyard, and our playground and just like we wouldn’t want to see plastic bottles and trash while hiking in the woods, we don’t want to have it in our waters, either.

Try to get out that weekend and join an event, or go solo, and make a commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle!  Check out these websites for more helpful ideas…

The Starfish Parable:  One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!”
