M A B O N – Oceans of plastic and one 8 year old’s solution to help stem the tide.

Our world has a serious ocean plastics problem. There are now a higher number of plastics in the ocean than the number of fish.

IT’S TIME TO REDUCE OUR CONSUMPTION OF SINGLE-USE PLASTIC

This story is one best told by the children who deal with this waste and who have taken on the burden of mankind’s glutton for plastic products. Mabon is the perfect example of this wonderful mindset, someone who spends time cleaning his favourite beaches, rather than just being able to sit and play in the sand like most children would. Mabon and his mum, Laura, a wild-swimmer, take their time to methodically clean the beach and name and shame the brands that produce the single use plastic in the first place.

Marvin Gaye ‘Save the Children’ 1971
Who really cares? There’ll come a time when the world won’t be singing. Flowers won’t grow. Bells won’t be ringing. Who really cares? Who’s willing to try? To save the world,
that’s destined to die. When I look at the world it fills me with sorrow. Little children today are really going to suffer tomorrow. What a shame. Such a bad way to live. Oh, who is to blame? We can’t stop living. Live for life, Live life for the children. Let’s save the children. Let’s save ALL the children
