#repost from a true inspiration and legend @john_john_florence .
When I saw this post on John’s page I was so stoked! Scroll right ️ to see his efforts and what he had to say about single use plastics and making the change to compostable materials! Single use plastic are harmful to our health and our environment. Switching to compostable products will not only help protect our coastlines and marine life, but it will help protect your families health and community health.
To see someone like John post about the importance of composting and compostable products makes me more than pumped!
As Wilmington lies on the East Coast, meeting land to sea with the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Fear River it is this geographical location that makes our local waterways, ocean, and local climate so unique. Through years of research and study in the area, spending a summer as a marine guide for UNCW MarineQuest outreach program, and traveling the coast to surf, I have been able to witness these critical habitats, estuaries, and marine biodiversity that make our waterways so beautiful and alive. As a surfer, conservationist, and ocean lover, it is my passion to protect the waters that I love and the waters that bring so much joy into my life and so many others. It is up to us to protect what we love. Do you like surfing, fishing, boating, crabbing, oystering, duck hunting, swimming, kayaking, beach days with the family here in Southeastern NC? These are just a few activities we stand to protect. I ask you as John ask in Hawaii, will you make the switch from styrofoam and plastics to compostables, in order to protect our land and waters? Will you manage your food and compostable waste to ensure there is a return from the materials versus the materials never being seen again buried in the landfill? We CHOOSE the future we see. We CHOOSE to take action to get there. #wilmingtonnc #wrightsvillebeach #carolinabeach
We would love to help you become more sustainable if you’re passionate about protecting our coast!
