Today marks the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day. As boaters, we tend to prefer the water, and the goods news is that it makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface. Marine life and vital coastal habitats are straining under the increasing pressure of global use. The ocean, which was once considered inexhaustible and resilient, is, in fact, finite and fragile. The goal of Earth Day 2012 is to inspire a billion acts of green. Watch the video below to learn more about this movement.
We invite you to mix your act of green with some blue, and learn what you can do to protect your favorite body of water by engaging with Sailors for the Sea programs:
- Volunteer to be a Clean Regatta liaison
- Educate others with Rainy Day Kits
