My Pledges

Stop Depletion of Fish Stocks
  • Pledge 2: Buy ocean-friendly certified seafood.
  • Pledge 4: Learn more about the fishing and aquaculture sectors so you can make informed choices.
Stop Ocean Acidification by Reducing Carbon Emissions
  • Pledge 3: Keep your tyres properly inflated (will boost your miles per litre of fuel consumption).
  • Pledge 4: Reduce your energy use at home (think insulation, turning off lights, shorter cycles on washing machines).
  • Pledge 5: Conserve water (shorter showers, turn off tap when brushing teeth etc). It takes a lot of energy to pump, treat and heat water.

Stop Plastic Marine Debris
  • Pledge 1: Refuse plastic drinking straws.
  • Pledge 3: Carry a reusable water bottle.
