Melissa McGinnis is in Dana Point, California with eco expert Anthony Zolessi who just wrapped up the Fortune Green conference. Zolessi learned something new about the way people should be potentially thinking about the world's oceans and he will be sharing with GreenopolisTV viewers.

Zolessi thinks the most profound thing he has learned during the conference is that 50% of our oxygen comes from the ocean. People don't put the ocean up front like they do for rainforests, or carbon, or greenhouse gasses. People need to be really thinking about how important this ocean is, whether it's putting plastic bottles in trash cans that could potentially end up in the ocean. Being sensitive to storm drains is incredibly important. Every river, almost every outlet, almost everything you see anywhere in the country is almost flowing into the ocean. At some point in time, it's flowing into the water. People have to be really, really sensitive on how we look at water in the future.

We're all connected through our oceans and waterways so take care of it - it's precious!
