Congratulations to @OrlandoBloom for receiving the 'Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Special Award’ at last night's Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean in recognition of his environmental awareness campaigning. · “The urgency of climate change has never rung louder than it is now. The science is clear. And what will they say of us, a hundred years from now, since we knew but sat and did nothing? The world is changing, and we need to change our habits along with it.? So I would challenge you to think what impact you can make and what legacy you will leave for your children and grandchildren because I truly believe that each and every individual is capable of creating real and monumental change.” – Orlando Bloom · · · · ? #oceanplastic #savetheoceans #plasticpollution #marinedebris #plasticfreeoceans #saveourseas #plasticocean #cleanoceans #oceanconservation #saveouroceans #marineconservation #savetheocean #ocean #underwater #respectthesea #montecarlogala #globalocean #fpa2 #princealbert2foundation #orlandobloom
