Taking care of our planet’s water is not only essential for the organisms living in it, but also the ones outside – including us. The way in which we use our oceans right now is not sustainable: We cannot keep on doing it indefinitely without destroying the marine ecosystem.
Luckily, exploitation of ocean resources does not HAVE to be harmful. However, we have to approach our economic endeavors in regards of our marine waters from a different angle. A Circular Blue Economy is a concept that allows us to look at our economic endeavors in the ocean through a different lens; one that aims to prevent taking more than we should.
This video explains the broad idea of a circular blue economy, who is part of it, and how it helps to sustain the health of our oceans.
