A study in 2018 found that around 10 million kg of plastic trash goes into the Great Lakes every year, sent from bays and rivers and local creeks. The Great Lakes are a huge freshwater system for Canada, so it is critical that we protect our waters. You can do so by reducing plastic usage in your home and community, organizing a community clean-up, or join a larger organization like Protect Our Great Lakes and sign their pledge to conserve the Great Lakes here: https://buff.ly/2MQCaVF⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #ecosolutions #climatesolutions #sustainablelifestyle #sustainablecommunities #ecolife #green #fight #climatechange #climatechangesolutions #climate #action #staygreen #inspiration #futurewewant #sdgs #sustainabledevelopmentgoals #instagood #instagram #photography #photooftheday #innovative #solutions #ideas #eco #solution #ecofriendly #environmentally #friendly #lakes #water

Our education program worked with @lowellschooldc to implement climate change across all subjects in their 6th grade curriculum. The results? Students who had climate change across their subjects performed better than those students who only had climate change taught in one class. They were more motivated to learn and poised to engage in solutions. // Read more about this partnership, featured in @grist ! Link in our bio.

Working 25% less can reduce our carbon footprint by 36.6%. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This is important. It’s time to adapt to changing times. The only reason we have a 5 day work week now is because of a mill in 1908 that granted 2 day weekends to its Jewish employees. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Technology has come so far, but the work week is still stuck in the early 1900s. And it’s hurting the planet. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 👩‍💼 Less work means less carbon intensive commuting, less energy sucking office space and less time spent on energy hungry technology and computers. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 👉 The four day workweek has already been tested in New Zealand and the UK, and has boosted employee productivity. Studies have also shown that people don’t tend to resort to environmentally harmful activities with their newfound free time, but rather relax with their friends and family. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Can you imagine how easy it’d be to get everyone on board with this?! Finally, a sustainable lifestyle change people won’t groan about.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What do you think of this?

Tonight in Topanga! Join us for a discussion of how to achieve big-picture change with some of SoCal’s most forward-thinking sustainability leaders. Free! . In the conversation about how to address climate change, the focus is often on the technologies that can help us lower heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions. But in reality, addressing climate change sustainably and equitably requires a much deeper examination — and transformation — of the human relationship with our environment. Join leaders working to green and protect their communities for a discussion about how to achieve sustainable and ethical transformation. . Panelists: . Pamela Berstler, Executive Director of the Pacific Horticultural Society and CEO of Green Gardens Group . Cindy Montañez, Chief Executive Officer, TreePeople . Clark Stevens — Executive Officer, Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains . Moderator: Alex Hall, PhD — Director, UCLA Center for Climate Science; Professor, UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and Institute of the Environment and Sustainability .

A climate solution that can scale arguably the best evolved organism on earth? Some would say that’s superplants. . We all know that plants suck up carbon dioxide ridiculously well and have been doing this superbly for 480,000,000 years, but plant biologists are now looking to engineer superplants that can help fight climate change by working to amplify their ability to do photosynthesis by making more roots, deeper roots, and storing more carbon. . Maybe one day we can share these special superplant characteristics with crop on lands that have been perceived to be farmed out leading to gigatons of carbon dioxide removal. These carbon-friendly systems could lead to more food, more carbon sequestered, and more financial returns for farmers. Gamechanger! . . . . . . #ourfragileearth #superplant #carbon #carbondioxide #photosynthesis #carbonsequestration #noplanetb #climatesolutions #soil #roots #supernatural #grass #carbonstorage #farming #rooted #drawdown #projectdrawdown #biotechnology

DDT is a synthetic organic compound used as an insecticide. Like other chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons, DDT tends to persist in the environment and become concentrated in animals at the top of the food chain. Its use is now banned in many countries including the US. . The persistence of DDT in the food chain and its effects on various wildlife was one of the reasons for the ban, although there are others, such as: ☣ Causing acute and chronic toxicity in humans. ☣ Known endocrine disruptor and carcinogenic. ☣ It interferes in thyroids in pregnancy and childhood. . Though DDT was banned in 1972, its residual power is so immense that high concentrations of it are still found to this day in many agricultural products as a result of long term soil contamination. 56 years later and it's still in our crops in abundance. . GMOs, Glyphosate, Artificial Sweeteners, Pesticides, Insecticides, Fungicides. Though there are completely opposing schools of thought on these matters, logic alone should dictate airing on the side of caution. If DDT is still present 56 years after being banned, and we're using these poisons at an ever increasing rate, what's going to be lingering in our food in another 56 years and how is it going to effect us. . . . . . #thinkaboutthat #savetheplanet #nongmo #organic #savetheplanet #ewg #ewgroup #pesticides #insecticides #fungicides #glyphosate #govegan #noplastic #ecostraw #nopollution #plasticsucks #ecology #recycle #greenliving #upcycledliving #carbonfootprint #motherearth #earth #oneearth #onlyoneearth #climatesolutions #sustainability #reducewaste

Food waste is one of the top four causes of the climate crisis due to individual (and individuals within a business) behavior. Besides not wasting food, let your city/county know you support composting, which helps return carbon to the soil, and minimizes methane production. Work with them to establish trial community-level organics recycling, like done here in Arlington, Virginia.

#RightsofNature defines the relationship of humanity and nature as interdependent, and allows us to express our deep respect and care for our Earth in modern structures of law. It is a framework that can, in part, help to restore the ancient and life-sustaining concepts that have been obscured by dominant and exploitative social, political, legal and economic structures. ⠀⠀ WECAN International acknowledges that #IndigenousPeoples worldwide have already lived in accordance with the principles encapsulated by the Rights of #MotherEarth for millennia. Not only have they survived radical changes in environmental conditions, but also they have thrived and created some of the richest, healthiest and longest living cultures on Earth. ⠀⠀ Hand in hand with our advocacy for Rights of Nature is thus an emphasis on the importance of Indigenous wisdom in guiding the development of #EarthLaws. It is vital to support intercultural dialogue, led by Indigenous voices, on the meaning, the implications and the correct implementation of Rights of Nature - and to uplift various political struggles faced by Indigenous peoples all over the world in defending their ancestral homelands from cultural and #environmentaldestruction. ⠀⠀ Photo by WECAN International/Emily Arasim of the Ecuadorian Amazon. ⠀⠀ #women4climatejustice #wecaninternational #waterislife #climatesolutions #climatejustice #women4forests #motherearthliving #forestscape #ecuadorianamazon #amazonrainforest #stopclimatechange

This is remarkably short-sighted given the many benefits forests bequeth mankind: clean air, timber, shelter, soil stability, climate regulation, biodiversity and food supply. Data on deforestation rates is variable. A recent report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UNFAO) estimated that around 7.3 million hectares are being lost a year (18 million acres). Other reports claim that between 1960 and 1990, 20% of the world's tropical rainforests were wiped out whilst other reports claim that tropical rainforests will be all but wiped out by the middle of this century. • 〚 how to help the environment: 〛 ❥ recycle whenever you can!!!! ♻️🌬 ❥ use reusable bags for shopping✨ ❥ use energy efficient light bulbs 💡 ❥ turn off water when not in use ☁️ ❥ walk/use public transportation 🌱 ❥ limit amount of red meat you eat🍦 ❥ use a metal straw, not plastic ones🐢 ❥ try to limit your food waste 🌟🍚🍃 ❥ avoid using pesticides/herbicides☁️ ❥ make your own bee garden 🐝🌬💿

By switching your search engine to @ecosia you can make a positive impact on the planet while you are working. . Its like any other search engine, with one major difference: it uses its profits to plant trees. 🌱 . And happily trees - the most efficient carbon filters on earth – can help us mitigate against climate change. . Ecosia uses at least 80% of its income to support reforestation projects. Helping to protect the habitats of endangered species like lemurs, orangutans, and chimpanzees. . It takes just 2mins to switch. . Why? Ecosia is currently financing reforestation projects in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Indonesia and Peru. These programs help employ communities, restore landscapes and turn deserts and barren land back into fertile forests. . This not only helps the environment and the planet’s CO2 balance, it also creates a world that is socially, economically and politically more sustainable. .

Oak habitat is disappearing from the United States, and in Oregon in particular. 🌳🌳For thousands of years, these beautiful woodlands provided critical habitat to a whole host of wildlife species, ranging from insects to birds and mammals. With less than 10 percent of the original oak woodlands left in many places, restoration is critical. In 2016, the Lomakatsi Restoration Project successfully increased fire resistance and climate change adaptive capacity on 1,400 acres of oak habitat. Learn more on our website!
