“...access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right..."
~Pope Francis, LS #30
Every day billions of people live without safe, clean, or enough water. At the same time, our oceans are polluted with plastics which affects both our planet and those whose livelihood and survival is dependent on the oceans. Hopeful examples around the world show that we are aware, that we want to spread that awareness, and we want to be a part of the movements which offer solutions to these crises.
