What’s up! I’m Waffles! My interests include swimming marathons, carb-loading, and brunch. I’ve been training hard for my next marathon so I’m spending a lot of time in the water, as most sea turtles do. And you know what I’ve noticed recently? A lot of this water is totally not sanitary! In fact, I heard through the grapevine that humans have been allowing chemicals and waste to run-off in my training area. Even if it isn’t direct pollution, harmful toxins like fertilizer and pesticides are sneakily making their way towards the ocean. Pollutants harm other marine animals and plants, too by depleting the water of nutrients and oxygen we all need to survive. I used my connections to hook up with the folks at Fahlo and they’re going to help us put a stop to this madness and raise awareness about this issue. I hope to see everyone on the beach cheering me on, just make sure you wait 30 minutes after you eat brunch before swimming!
