World Ocean’s Day

Today on World Ocean’s Day we have donated to The Ocean Cleanup. The saddest thing we witnessed on our Family Sabbatical across SE Asia wasn’t poverty, but the heartbreaking reality of how filthy the oceans are. We went diving and snorkelling in the Philippines, Vietnam, Bali and Thailand and saw beautiful creatures surrounded by endless trash — from big pieces of styrofoam lining the coast of Vietnam to tiny plastics blanketing the west coast of Bali. It’s dear to all of our hearts, especially our young children whose best memories of our trip are all about the ocean.
