A disturbance on the water creates a ripple effect going outward into a splash that then becomes a wave that can dictate what the future will become. This piece is derived by the ripple effect in the natural world, and how little acts can lead to big consequences. I was not sure which issue of ocean pollution to tackle, so I decided to give a general lesson about what happens if we create a negative impact on the ocean. All events that harm the sea, to me, such as the BP Oil Spill in 2010, always make me angry and feel a sense of hopelessness. Man is the leading cause of ocean pollution. The choices we make, or actions we do, create ripple effects that will determine the future of our ocean and ourselves. But it doesn't have to be like this. The ripple effect can be made out of good decisions, too. Positive acts can make a big difference. Be the person who creates positive ripple effects, for the future of our children.
