Every year on June 8, World Oceans Day is celebrated across the globe to raise awareness of the Earth’s oceans, and the need to care for them. For Seaside Sustainability, a nonprofit organization based in Gloucester, MA, every day is World Oceans Day. The organization equips individuals, businesses and communities around the world to take action to protect ocean health. The 2021 World Oceans Day theme is “Life and Livelihoods,” which emphasizes how both wildlife and human-life rely on our oceans.
On World Oceans Day and every day, Seaside Sustainability provides a variety of opportunities to make a difference at the individual, local, and global levels.
