THINK OF BLUE, GO GREEN

There is a catastrophe we need to address

One that we cannot suppress

Our oceans are being polluted and harmed

It’s time for people to be alarmed


We need sewage to be treated well

Unnecessary nutrients in the ocean are like a bombshell

They lead to a decrease in oxygen levels

For aquatic life, they are devils


We need to find a solution

For industrial and agricultural pollution

To the marine life, these liquids are poisonous

They cause thermal pollution and are really hazardous


Prevent excess water runoff into the ocean

Because it transports fertilisers and pesticides which causes contamination

And letting animal and human waste into the ocean is a crime

Since it could create several dead zones in no time


Ships need to transport oil cautiously

One spill can affect the ocean horribly

Additionally, it’s extremely hard to clean up

Not to mention, the life cycles it could disrupt


While mining in the ocean for silver, gold, copper and zinc from every side

Three thousand metres underwater, you cause a deposit of sulphide

Which permanently causes toxicity

And causes leaking, corrosion and oil spills that damage the ecosystem drastically


Most importantly, stop littering

Keep the ocean beautiful and glittering

Install trash cans and recycle bins

If you want to save the corals and fins


These are some things to keep in mind for our oceans

We need to save them for our future generations

To save the mighty expanse of blue

We need all the help we can get, we need you!
