By conserving water, we are creating less runoff and wastewater that eventually pollute our oceans. Here are some ways to save water:
Be sure to recycle items whenever it is possible. If recycling options are not available, make sure that all waste is disposed of properly so that it does not end up in the ocean.

There are a variety of ways to volunteer, including beach clean-ups, coral reef cleanups and more. Many events also occur on Earth Day and local orgnazations will often organize an eco-friendly activity. So grab some of your friends and volunteer with one of these organizations.
