World Oceans Day giveaway!

[Find details about the giveaway below!]

Oh my goodness, I’M IN NEW YOOOORK!!!!! I had only been back in the Netherlands for one week when I got a call from World Merit to ask me if I wanted to represent them at the World Oceans Day conference at the United Nations. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, and felt so honoured and humbled that they thought of me 😊

Our oceans play such an important part in our lives, and we are all connected to it. Did you know that it produces over HALF the oxygen we breathe? That means that every second breath you take has been produced by the ocean. And what do we give to it in return? A ton of plastic waste, carbon dioxide and we literally extract the life out of it.

Every year, we produce around 300 million tonnes of plastic. And do you know how much of it is intended for single use? It’s around 40%, almost half! How insane is that? And at the same time, this figure really gives me hope. To help you ditch plastic straws from your life for good, I have teamed up with the one and only Bamboo Straw Girl to give one lucky winner a set of ocean friendly straws!


  1. Follow Sunshine Sister and Bamboo Straw Girl on Instagram!
  2. Post a photo or video on either Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #MyOceanPledge. Explain what you will do to reduce your plastic consumption.

THAT’S IT! You can participate multiple times, a winner will be drawn at the end of the week. Good luck 😀
