Last week The Ocean Cleanup (www.theoceancleanup.com) launched its System 001 from the San Francisco bay to travel 350 miles offshore to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage patch. The efforts of this group of scientists, engineers, researchers and computational modelers working together in unison to rid the world's oceans of plastic is MONUMENTAL and incredibly moving.
Inspired by this organization, we move forward from this national holiday with great hope that we can clean up our horribly polluted planet. To do our part, the Dragon Herbarium has cut down our use of plastic by switching to an eco-friendly and bio-degradable packaging for our Kratom. Let us all try to inspire one another, setting an example by intending a quick cleanup when when we travel to the coast for a beach day, or maybe while we are on our everyday walk, simply taking a moment to collect that piece of trash on the sidewalk, nested in the dirt at the park, or on the trail. I am always loading my sons stroller up with trash I find on our walks to the park and even at the children's playground. It takes all of us to keep this earth clean, as we are responsible for the harm that has been done and we must make every effort to aid in healing Gaia. So the next time you are out and about, please pick up that trash/dog poop bag/candy wrapper, etc. You can ALWAYS wash your hands and walk away knowing that you ARE a part of the solution! 🙏
