The sea is where I live. The ocean is my home. It’s a big part of my daily life to keep it clean. More than a year ago, I had a Lady Captain onboard M.T. Ardea who advise me to save all the mineral water bottles that we received in Sweden and return it to the disposal center for deposit.
And I did, with the cooperation of all our crew I saved more than 500 bottles. Each bottles has a SEK 2.00 (about $0.30 cent US Dollar ) deposit. I’m not very good in math but I believe it will be more than a thousand swedish kroners or around $150.00 US Dollars!!! Whoa… thats a a lot of money. And of course, a lot of garbage we save for recycling.
I was so happy and proud! Doing something for the environment. But I think what I did was not enough, whenever I encounter bad weather at sea I always ask the sea why is she so angry? I told her that I have done all my best to save and protect the sea.
Then I thought King Neptune whats me to do something more that saving ang protecting the sea and environment. He wants me to tell my story. He wants me to tell the world that there’s a lot of ways to keep our home safe and clean. He wants me to make a noise for all the world to know that we are just visitors here. We should do our part and act now!
It has been a week since I join onboard M.T. Mergus and all I encounter was bad weather. And I must say that there’s a big difference from bad weather on land than at sea. Just for the curious minds of some CooksOnboard Wannabe’s, in land, when the weather is bad outside you can still cook properly inside your kitchen. But onboard, when the weather is bad outside then inside your galley will be hell! And all you wish is to survive.
So be good to Mother Nature and she will give back a thousand folds.
Just look what happen to the garbage that we save and dispose properly. She really give back a thousand folds!!!
So here’s our story…
On a nice sunny afternoon at Nynäshamn, Sweden.
Myself and two other collegues onboard help me dispose the mineral bottles that we saved.
