We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into May with a smile.

If you have been reading my posts for #WATWB, you know my favorite stories contain good news for the environment and hence, for all of us. The story I have chosen for this month is about a young girl who’s making a difference in the world’s oceans. She’s an inspiration and I hope more people feel compelled to do their part to reduce plastic use and waste when they see what she’s done.

Click here to read the story.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Shilpa GargDan AntionSimon FalkMichelle Wallace, and Mary Giese.

P.S. If you’re interested in reading more about finding alternatives to plastic, I encourage you to read this article, about how giving up straws makes it easier for us to give up other forms of plastic, and this article, about how easy it is to find alternatives to the plastics we use around the house every day.

    Thanks Amy for highlighting this young girl’s passion! From Holland to Norway – and for all those young and old who are determined to clean up our seas and beaches, waterways and forests … seeing beached whales and wildlife dead because of plastic is gut wrenching ..

      It’s very sad to read about marine animals who die because of all the junk floating in the oceans. And it’s not just large pieces of plastic–lately there have been more and more stories written about microplastics that are being ingested by marine organisms–it’s awful. If we could find ways to reduce and ultimately eliminate our need for plastics, the world might be a much safer place for people and animals. Thanks for dropping in.

  3. Thank you for participating in the #WATWB this month!

    A ten year old is traveling more than 600 miles for such a good cause! Wow!
    She is such a great example to all youngsters who are oblivious to the need for ongoing sustainable living practises but instead have their heads buried in the latest technological gadgets!
    Loads of adults too…

      She is indeed an amazing child, and one who is a great example for all of us, both adults and children. Every day it seems there’s a climate change story in the news that’s more disturbing than the day before…we need to get with it if we’re going to make the changes we need to make in order to slow climate change. Thanks for visiting!
