We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

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

The story I’ve chosen for this month is another in a continuing string of environmental/conservation stories that I’ve been sharing for months. Fishermen in India have been retrieving plastic from the ocean instead of tossing it back. The plastic is being used to shore up road construction.

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 Garg, Simon Falk, Mary J. Giese, Don Antion, and Damyanti Biswas.

    Sometimes, it takes small simple efforts to solve large global problems, or at least to call attention to them. Thanks for sharing this with us and for participating in WATWB. This is a great story to share!

      Thanks, Dan. The animal conservation and environmental stories are my favorites because they show just what you mention: that small steps add up and everyone can take small steps. Enjoy your weekend!

    I so love this trend! Also more and more news about banning single use plastics is great as well!

      I’ve shared some articles about single-use plastic, and it’s so important. Our township is thinking about banning plastic grocery bags, and I’m shocked at the resistance to it.
