If you didn’t already know, I love the ocean. (After all, “sea” is half of this blog’s title.) In my day job, I work for an environmental nonprofit, which aims to protect the ocean. It can sometimes feel overwhelming—especially when there are so many problems facing the ocean, and seemingly so few solutions. Earlier this week, however, the ocean community had a major victory, and one which coincides nicely with the content on my blog: the United States Congress passed a ban on plastic microbeads in soaps, body wash, and other personal care products.
