A seahorse clinging to a cotton bud * A turtle with a plastic straw deeply embedded in its nostril and now this. Do we need to reinact all these photos with humans until the message is understood? 💔 ➡ Reposted from @underwatertank - 'Planet or Plastic?' 🌏♻️ ~ The photographer freed this stork from a plastic bag at a landfill in Spain. One bag can kill more than once: Carcasses decay, but plastic lasts and can choke or trap again. . 📷: John Cancalosi Via @natgeo - #regrann . . . . #singleuseplasticsucks #plasticfreeoceans #landfillssuck #antropocene #banplasticbags #planetorplastic

#10YearChallenge - what are we going to do about this?? 😢 . This is a wake up call! We need to take a step back and truly SEE 👀what our consumer society is doing to our planet. Because when it's broken beyond repair, all the money and material stuff we prize so highly now will be useless 💰🗑 . A good place to start is to spend time and energy on cultivating the feeling of 'being enough' and 'having enough'. We have to break away from feeling like we always need MORE. . I know it's hard because we're bombarded from all sides with media and business interests who want us to switch-off our thinking, zone-out and just work harder so we can afford to buy more things to make us supposedly happier and keep the economy ticking over. But look what it's doing to our world! 🌍💔 . I'm going to try to make 2019 the year of 'enough'. I don't want my actions to contribute to this. I hope you will join me in trying to escape the consumer treadmill - buy less, have less and experience more of real life, by being more connected to the natural world Reposted from @lessplasticuk . If we start off consciously on this path, hopefully it will soon become our new way ✨💚 . . . . . #ClimateChange #ActOnClimate #NoBuy #LowBuy #PlasticFree #PlasticFreeOcean #PlasticFreeLiving #SustainableBrand #StopPlasticPollution #PlasticCoalition #BanPlastic #BanPlasticBags #SayNoToPlasticBags #MarineResearch #EnvironmentalEducation #EnvironmentalScience #EnvironmentFriendly #BanPlasticBottles #BanPlasticStraws #NoPlasticStraws #SayNoToStraws #CrushPlastic #PlasticResolution #BanSingleUsePlastic #NoExcuseForSingleUse #ZeroWasteLiving #onebhoomi

I put these veggies in a cloth bag a fortnight back in the refrigerator. When I opened the bag today, to my surprise, the vegetables were as fresh as wen they were bought....wen I had stored them in a plastic bag, they became stale in just 3 or 4 days.....just wondering how harmful are the plastic bags and how good these cloth bags are. #banplasticbags #banplastic #greenveggies #gogreen #avoidjunkfood #eatvegetables #fitmomlife #fitmom #momsofinstagram #veggielover #nogymworkout #nogymnoproblem #nogym #stayslim #eathealthy

I should not have to swim my ass back in with this tucked into my wettie. If you're enjoying a picnic by the beach, take your food in Tupperware, put any food wrappers or bags in there as soon as they're removed, and check the sand for anything before you leave. It's as easy as that 🌊

Reusable cloth bags, y’all. They’re bigger, stronger and cuter, and they don’t wind up floating 36,000 feet under the sea with the jellyfish, as the Connecticut Post pointed out in an editorial this morning. Kudos to Big Y for banning plastic bags in all 30 CT stores by next year, but we need a statewide ban. Glad Trader Joe’s + Whole Foods still credit you for bringing your own, glad Stop & Shop provides plenty of bags at checkout to buy (mad they stopped giving bag credits), but the worst offender is Shop Rite — no cloth bags at checkout aisles and only sold in faraway frozen foods aisle (in Milford anyway). Follow the lead of Costco and Aldi, who provide no plastic bags. It’s time for our state, for every state, to ban single-use, nonbiodegradable plastic bags. Norwalk, Stamford, Greenwich, and Westport have voted for this, but we need all 168 cities/townships to fall in line #banplasticbags #dotherightthing #ctpost @bigyfoods @wholefoodsmilford @traderjoes @stopandshop @shopritestores @costco @aldiusa #ctgeneralassembly @senatorcohenct

(3 pictures) In Summer 2018 when I was in Utila, I was taken to the North side of the island (I think it was) and shown the rubbish that washes up here... I was gobsmacked! Look at the amount of plastic and foam etc.. it sickened me and I have made changes to my lifestyle but it’s not enough. 2019 for me is the year of change. until you see if for yourself you ignore it because it isn’t our problem. BUT IT IS OUR PROBLEM!! So, we now have metal straws at home and soap bars, we don’t use bags and try to buy items without plastic where possible. #rubbish #plastic #saynotoplastic #saynotoplasticstraws #saynotoplasticbags #saynotoplastics #saveouroceans #cleanseas #loveourearth #utila #honduras #cleanuptheworld #cleanupouroceans #metalstraws #savetheplanet #saveplanetearth #savemarinelife #banplastic #banplasticbags #banplasticstraws

For those afraid to drink from the tap... take a read :) don’t be a part of the problem. I am taking a class at my University called green chemistry and I’m super excited to learn more. We talked about polyethylene, the monster used to make plastic 😩 the only way to reduce production is to reduce usage. This is a man made chemical so there is NO natural enzymes to degrade it so these plastics will NEVER go away. Think before you use or buy. Lastly, I feel like a lot of my followers are green because we share a common interest but you need to SHARE this information. I have got my roommates to buy bamboo toilet paper and not use plastic straws, my parents switched to bamboo toothbrushes and my sister brings her own reusable straw everywhere she goes. They aren’t educated on this but because I shared a few things I’m passionate about they made a change. If anyone is struggling to find a way they can help COMMENT or DM me I would happy to help you help make a change!!!! #onechange #nomoreplastic #banplastic #banplasticbags #reusable #green #recycle #environment #mothernature

Isto de chamar à vossa atenção às vezes é difícil e gosto muito quando me escrevem porque se identificam com as minhas palavras 🙌🏻 Obrigada! Hoje quero desafiar-vos a juntarem-se a um micro-movimento de pessoas que acham que os oceanos precisam da nossa ajuda e que o mundo está a ficar plastificado - em todos os sentidos da palavra - É simples, basta lerem o último post no blog para perceberem que sim, por mais pequenos que possamos ser, temos sempre uma palavra a dizer. E é tão fácil! Vamos a isso? Obrigada 🙋🏼‍♀️ #climatechangeisreal #banplasticbags #tribejldesign #yogalife #yogajournal

Happy friday everyone. Felt like a win yesterday as did a little plastic free shop, trying to buy less from supermarkets and more from local markets. Got an absolute bargain with these avocados too as much cheaper and better quality than supermarket ones (5 for £2!).

That beautiful fine line 🌊 that separates earth and ocean. Why must we allow so much poison to cross over into it? The greatest threat to this planet, is the assumption that somebody else will fix the problems. There is no 'somebody else' strong enough but if we ALL change a little we can change a LOT. 🌏Welcome to our new account, please follow if you are also passionate about leaving this planet better than you found it. We promise to bring awareness and education on how you can improve your day to day habits. 🌊 🌊 🌊 #ecofox #savetheocean #marinelife #ocean #banplastic #banplasticbags #togetherwecan #makeadifference #passion #support #power

Tonight I went to @simplygreencafe in Ramsey, NJ. I got the Chik’n parm panini with sweet potato fries as my entree and calamari (breaded oyster mushrooms) as a starter. Honestly, this is my favorite all vegan restaurant, their food is amazing. They have the best vegan comfort foods and focus on being environmentally friendly with no use of plastic straws and encourage customers to use reusable bags. 🌱♻️ • • #vegan #plantbased #crueltyfree #vegannj #veganaf #simplygreencafe #veganfood #vegandinner #veganism #vegancomfortfood #nj #nondairy #noanimalsharmed #banplasticstraws #banplasticbags

#خرید بی زباله استفاده از کیسه های نخی برای خرید، کمک زیادی به کاهش استفاده از پلاستیک میکنه. فروشگاه های بزرگ بریتانیا سالانه بیش از هشتصد هزار تن زباله پلاستیکی تولید میکنن.(گاردین) برخی از فروشگاه هم تدابیر خاص خودشونو برای کاهش پلاستیک دارن. مثلا اگه کیف پارچه ای داشته باشین، مالیات کمتری روی خرید حساب میشه یا تخفیف میگیرین. #goingzerowaste #noplasticbags #banplasticbags @allcottonandlinen

160,000 plastic bags are used globally every second! Plastic bags cause the death of many marine animals when they are mistaken for food. 🐋This image produced in a collaboration between my self and my brother is from my most recent project. Experimenting with image manipulation to raise the issue of plastics, and the effect they are having on our wildlife.

Here is my current bin system. I have one for paper and cardboard, another one for glass and bottles, a small one to collect any soft plastic until I take it to a Redcycle point, a "normal" bin, and a food scraps bin, as I just started composting (more on this on a future post). I have a small jar where I put batteries that then take to @aldiaustralia too. This is great, it is so good to know and understand my waste, it helps me to focus on keep reducing it and finding ways to "refuse" items with unwanted waste, specially packaging…. Which system you use? Do you have multiple bins too? Is there any other bin / way of classifying waste you would recommend? #towardszerowastejourney #zerowaste   #towardszerowaste #azerowastelife #zerowastesydney #everystepcounts #banplasticbags #reducepackaging #organic   #organicmarket   #bulkshopping #zerowasteliving #eco #gogreen #plasticfree #sustainableliving #sustainable #bethechange #lessplastic #plasticfreeliving

Did you know? 1. Your local coffee shop cup is not recyclable because of a plastic liner. 2. 58 billion cups are thrown away each year into landfill in US only. 3. Single use drinks and food containers are the number 1 cause for ocean pollution. 4. Numerous studies have shown that all plastics leach estrogenic chemicals leading to cancer. 5. Single use is a huge waste, every year we are cutting down 20 million trees and use 12 billion gallons of water to make the paper cups in US. We are making the change the planet needs.

Think you can't make a global difference? 16 days ago I launched a pledge. That pledge was to ask 550 people to pick up 5 pieces of litter per day during 2019. Then by the end of the year together we will have collected over 1 million pieces. Just look how quickly this pledge has grown and in fact the running total as I type this is over 16,000 pieces. I am deeply humbled by everyone who is involved in this and who have signed the pledge. You are the heroes. Go do it and change the world too. 5ThingsClear.com/Pledge

@save_ocean_com Plastic pollution of ocean doesn’t affect me directly though does it? With 1 in 3 fish caught for human consumption now containing plastic, the question is no longer are we eating plastic but how bad for us is that? In seawater plastic absorbs chemicals like PCB’s and DDT’s which have been linked to endocrine disruption and even some cancers, becoming more powerful as they work their way up the food chain. #saynotoplastics #banplasticbags #savetheoceans #keeptheoceanclean #banplastic #ocean #oceanconservation #rubbishremoval

Here are a few tips to follow when recycling in Australia…. The item should be clean, dry and empty Bigger is always better.. Items smaller than your fist cannot be recycled. Flatten your boxes Yes to recycling: → All paper (including clips and staples) → Shredded paper may be recycled if contained in another recyclable piece. Check with your council. → Clear, brown and green glass → Plastic bottles and containers with numbers 1 to 7 → Remove lids from bottles and jars. → All steel and aluminum → Check with your local council if you can recycle aerosol cans → For Tetra packs, milk and juice cartons check with your council → Don’t bag the items No to recycling: - Don’t include soft plastics - the big supermarkets have a Redcycle program accepting them - Don’t include paper towels and toilet paper. - Foam, meat trays and plastic bags cannot be recycled - Pizza boxes are a no-no, check with your council if you can recycle them after taking precautions - Hazardous waste (like BBQ gas bottles or batteries) can't be recycled on kerbside bins - Pots and foil could contain rest of food, metals and material that contaminates the lot, check with your council - Check with your pharmacist for Medical waste And lastly.. Try to compost your food scraps… #towardszerowastejourney #zerowaste   #towardszerowaste #azerowastelife #zerowastesydney #everystepcounts #banplasticbags #reducepackaging #organic   #organicmarket   #bulkshopping #zerowasteliving #eco #gogreen #plasticfree #sustainableliving #sustainable #bethechange #lessplastic #plasticfreeliving

We've all seen the PR on companies or countries quitting (*single use) plastic bags(*at the checkout). Now all you need to do to get around it is to make thicker plastic bags and tell people to reuse them. . What a false solution / business opportunity! . The thicker bags just put more robust trash into the environment to cause trouble. It's like writing 'reuse this' on the problem and thinking you've done your homework. Nope sorry, try again. . *eyeroll .
