Safe in green spaces;
Oceans devoid of plastic;
Dreams are not enough.
My environment haiku plea today for everyone to safeguard our world, and the habitats every creature depends on, for our safety, for our food security and for our health.
We are not safe in our green spaces at the moment. They are under threat from developers and polluters. This is despite evidence to show that access to our natural environment reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and aids mental health.
Plastic waste in the oceans kills fish and other marine creatures. Killing fish reduces food stocks, and creates famine for coastal communities to add to that inland.
‘Environment’ is not a liberal’s option, it is a necessity.
Do you raise your voice for the things that make life worth living?
