To be honest, there weren’t many things the Bush administration did that I agreed with, that being said, one very important act Bush enacted was creating the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. This 140,000 square mile preserve is considered the coral reef rainforest of the Pacific – home to thousands of marine species and endangered animals. Why Bush created this monument may be more an influence of Laura Bush and her love of the ocean and Hawaiian islands – whatever the case, a good move.

The other important move – in making this area of the Pacific a National Monument is the ability to remove 40 to 60 tons of garbage, trash, and marine debris that litters these amazing islands each year. More than 700 tons have been removed since starting the debris removal initiatives. It’s a staggering amount of trash, and one of the reasons that Planet Protect Sportswear works to educate and tell consumers about the dangers of plastic pollution in our oceans.
