Luke Bakhuzien, a digital content creator and social media influencer has partnered with Parley for the Oceans and Corona Extra Australia to raise awareness on plastic in our ocean.

On March 31st, Bakhuzien attended a beach cleanup hosted by the duo at Cronulla Beach in Sydney. He stated, “When we arrived at the beach, it looked spotless but after only an hour we managed to collect 122kg of plastic. During this beach cleanup mission, they warned us about the severity of plastic in our ocean. According to what they told us, unless we act now and start aggressively cleaning our oceans, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. That’s so disheartening.”

Bakhuzien offered several tips for how consumers can help reduce plastic waste including:

  • Being a conscious consumer and becoming aware of how items are disposed of
  • Recycling
  • Investing in reusable cups, water bottles, bags
  • Supporting brands and organizations that address plastic pollution
  • Joining a beach cleanup
  • Spreading awareness and explaining to others how they can help

“We need to protect Earth’s oceans. There are actions we all can take that will help our environment and planet. I encourage everyone to become aware of the pollution currently affecting our oceans and to take the steps to join the movement and reduce your own waste.”

Corona x Parley will continue to host beach cleanups around Australia, Mexico, Chile, Italy, the Dominican Republic and the Maldives. Those interested in learning more and joining the movement can visit: https://takeaction.parley.tv/.
