Today marks World Ocean’s Day for LA MER. Every 8th of June is their ongoing commitment to protect the world’s oceans since the sea is LA MER’s source of inspiration.
Did you know that 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by oceans? Did you know that the architecture and chemistry of coral is so similar to human bone, coral has been used to replace bone grafts in helping human bone to heal quickly and cleanly? Lastly, did you know that most of the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean?
Sadly, our air pollution is also responsible for 33% of the toxic contaminants that end up in oceans and coastal waters. We all know how bad our pollution is – my son Asher and a few of his friends has asthma that is triggered by it! Grrrrrr. And recently, I went to Boracay.. their clear blue waters as we know it is GREEN. It has become infested with algae – it’s quite disgusting and pretty toxic for people to swim in. Truth be told that nearly 60 per cent of the world’s remaining reefs are at significant risk of being lost in the next three decades.
I’m so happy that LA MER is committed to making a difference. Thank you LA MER for sending me the new limited-edition design for this year’s World Ocean’s Day campaign. Every time I apply this moisturizer, I will remember your passion project of protecting the Blue Heart of our planet – OUR SEA!
