A dear friend came up with the vision and name for “Clean Ocean Movement”
Here we shall begin listing the innovations that are arising
for helping to clean up our beautiful oceans
so life on EARTH and Mother Gaia can thrive
We shall also list educational pieces that inform
about the severity of the situation of ocean pollution
Many thanks to a teacher who reached out to us,
letting us know of an additional resource for this page.
Collaborations such as these help greatly
in gathering momentum to build a better world.
This teacher is helping her local community center
to create an upcoming program aimed towards children
about keeping our community clean, saving the environment,
climate change and how we all can help by going green.
One of her young students doing online research found this great resource.
There are 25 topics on Ocean Plastic Pollution in this important guide.
Guide to Marine Plastic Pollution
The more people that understand plastic ocean pollution,
the more chances there are that action will be taken to reduce it.
“For the first time, scientists have found microplastics in the lungs of living people.
The research, which was accepted into the peer-reviewed journal Science of the Total Environment March 25, underlines the “mounting concern” around the reach of microplastics worldwide – and growing health consequences.
Microplastics – consisting of any type of plastic less than five millimeters long – can now be found anywhere from the top of Mount Everest to the deepest oceans. These tiny particles of waste also enter the body through the food, drink and the air we breath.
Last month, another study detected microplastics in human blood for the first time. And previous research has suggested that we inhale and ingest about 2,000 microplastics each week, an amount equal to the weight of one credit card.”
We will also include in our Portal Community
Invitations to join in the “Clean Ocean Movement”
A Heart Plan Vision Project
Let’s track huge database of all ocean clean up efforts underway
Examples of Volunteer Efforts
Ocean Divers! Organize Clean Up Efforts Around the World
“Clean Up The Ocean Floors of Human Generated Trash”
Heart Plan Vision Portal Project IDEAS
This is one of Shema’s Facebook pages where innovations are posted
Ideally we shall we pulling from this FB Community Page
all the related projects on ocean clean up and post them here also
So we can see at a glance all the amazing efforts underway
We need HOPE, these examples will lend towards the possibilities that give hope
And beyond hope, we need to adopt a FEARLESS commitment
To tackle the problem at hand. (thank you Paul Hawken for this truth telling)

SIGNS OF INNOVATIONS TO CLEAN UP OUR OCEANS
The Ocean Cleanup
“The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every five years.
The Impact of the cleanup:
Our models indicate that a full-scale system roll-out could clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years. Research shows the majority of plastic by mass is currently in the larger debris. By removing the plastic while most of it is still large, we prevent it from breaking down into dangerous microplastics.
Combining the cleanup with source reduction on land paves the road towards a plastic free ocean by 2050″
We Can Save The World Extras:E1 – Costa Rica Bans Plastic
Costa Rica Trying to Ban Single Use Plastics by 2021
Part of the plan includes innovative research projects for sustainable replacements for plastic
May we each ask ourselves, how are we individually reducing plastic waste
France Is the First Country to Ban Plastic Cups, Plates, and Cutlery
Starting in 2020, most plastic cups, plates and cutlery will be totally banned. The new policy outlaws disposable utensils in an attempt to build a more sustainable economy. The only exception will be for disposable items made from biodegradable substances.
The decision follows the country’s total ban on plastic bags last year, in accordance with the Energy Transition for Green Growth Act which aims to transform France into “an exemplary nation in terms of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions, diversifying its energy model and increasing the deployment of renewable energy sources.”
