I don't know.

Let me ask a rhetorical question that is close to MY heart.

Do we do all we can to encourage vaccination?

Well I use the restrooms on shore and do not pee in the sea.

Never seen the Ocean in any of the local restaurants, so not sure if they are received in a friendly manner.
The fish is very nice, and there was no plastic on the plates.

I would think the local steak places are mostly "ocean friendly". Cow friendly, not so much.

Good one, you get 5 points for that one, giggle! Just wondering about plastic found on our shores.
Would love return to bio-degradables again!

Ok, I'll bite.
What exactly is a restaurant in TV going to do to harm the ocean?

I agree, it's disgusting to see pictures of our ocean abuse.
People justify the use of water bottles by saying that they are recycled.
I like to think that all recycled bottles are made into carryalls.
I'm not sure about that; a lot of plastic seems to end up in the ocean.
If water bottles aren't recycled, would discontinuing their use be a good start?

Keep in mind that, as with CO2 emissions, most of the ocean trash we see comes from other countries.

Very true. Turners in Leesburg doesn’t offer straws.
