There was a great conversation happening on TikTok (yes, TikTok) on Dr. Virginia Schutte's account regarding wastefulness and our environment.
The video series started with Virginia stitching another creator on her comments about being judged for her family using paper plates. Virginia responded by saying that she chooses not to judge anyone on their lifestyle and rather approaches people with love and support to help others understand what conservation is and that not everyone is able to do conservation.
A number of other comments were generated from the first video and Virginia had great responses to them. I discuss them in this episode and add my own thoughts on conservation and how we and corporations can act to help our blue planet.

This episode is purely motivational. I find that there is a perception that people should do everything perfectly if they are going to be eco-friendly. Apparently, there is no room for failure. You are either all eco-friendly or you are not at all. And that is the wrong way of thinking.
Changing human behaviour is hard and it takes time to achieve your full goals. I provide examples of how I changed certain aspects of my life to improve myself. I oftentimes will throw things against the wall to see what sticks and work on improving myself each time.
Don't be afraid about failure and act now for the Ocean.

In my quest to become more sustainable, I've discovered companies that are registered B-Corporations. These corporations strive to be socially, economically and environmentally ethical with their business. The businesses usually use their mission to drive something special such as providing clothes for the needy or protecting the environment. People buy from these companies because they believe in their mission.
I recently found out that a company for which I order their products on a regular basis has become certified as a B-Corp and have teamed up with Terracyle to truly recycle their products into long-lasting products such as park benches. I am a consultant for this company and I can help you get set up with buying these products if you use similar items. Now you know that the products can be truly recycled and reused.
Here is a link to the list of products that can be used by Terracyle:

The second part of the episode was an update on Ontario's Bill 229, which was a budget bill to help with the economic effects of COVID-19; however, it contains a clause that took away the powers of Conservation Authorities. Take a listen to find out what happened.

The Ocean is in trouble. There is no doubt about that.However, there are ways that we can fix it. And it starts with us!
There are a number of things that you can do to live for a better Ocean. It starts at home and we've discussed it on the podcast many times. I figured since some of you have been loyal listeners to the Speak Up For Blue podcast for the past year and a bit and have changed the way you lived at home to an Ocean conscious life, then you might be ready to step up your Marine Conservation game and make more of a commitment to protecting the Ocean. If you are still changing things at home, no worries. Listen to this podcast for the future. You might just get motivated (#MotivationMondays)
