Deep Blue Life choices can and should be...
Six ways to make Better Choices. Daily
Ready to start living your own Deep Blue Life? It's Simple – start by taking 3 personal actions everyday, related to any of the 6 categories below. Repeat that everyday; add more actions as you can, until you're up to a Dozen a day (or MORE)
Health & Wellness
Focus on selecting better food choices (like Local, Organic, non-GMO, Fair-Trade) for every meal, get some daily exercise doing something you love, and take time to cultivate a positive state of mindfulness.
Take a walk, ride a bike, hop a train, or share a ride to get where you need to go. And when you do drive, use a hybrid or plug-in electric vehicle – and you'll get to the Beach, while saving the sea.
Gear for Living
Before you buy something new, first Reduce, Recycle & Reuse. And when you need something new – look for durable, energy-efficient and ethically-made products, that use recycled and bio-based materials which have a lower impact on our oceans.
Power your home directly with low-carbon, renewable energy technologies like solar and wind – and/or choose the "Green Power" option offered by many utility companies that enable them to source cleaner energy for everyone in your community.
Get involved with the local and global environmental/social groups, who care about the same things you do. Volunteer your time, plant a garden, attend a community gathering, share a meal together and make new friends too.
Making a dozen better choices daily, will boost your positive impact on ocean health, while also dramatically reducing your negative impacts. But for most of us, we will still have a left over "carbon-footprint" that is harming our Ocean planet, and it must be reversed. So as a final step – consider supporting forest conservation projects, such as mangrove tree planting, in a certified 'Blue Carbon' project.
