Just a few minutes on the beach and I picked up this - all plastic ๐Ÿ˜ฃ  Plastic litter never goes away - it just breaks down into smaller pieces.  It’s estimated that there are over 5.2 TRILLION* pieces of plastic in our oceans {can you even comprehend that!?} affecting over 96% of marine biodiversity.  If you haven’t seen A Plastic Ocean it is well worth the watch.  Watch it with your kids and talk to them about what changes you could make to lessen the amount of plastic waste you generate.  Recycling your plastics is great, but reducing is better - bring your own reusable bags to the shops, stop using single use plastics like straws, water bottles and cling wrap.  And the next time you head to the beach, spend a few minutes picking up some rubbish. ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒโœจ *number from @1millionwomen  #reduce #saynotosingleuse #saveouroceans #plasticfree #keepaustraliabeautiful #aplasticocean
This hermit crab has resorted to using a toothpaste lid to protect its body. Humans have created so much waste, that nature has now started to incorporate it into its everyday cycle of life. ๐Ÿฆ€ #plasticconscious #plastic #singleuseplastic #saynotoplastic #waste #trash #foodchain #environment #marinelife #saveouroceans #future #crisis #sea #ocean #pollution #5gyres #parleyfortheoceans #oceanic #oceana #oceanconservation #lonelywhale #aplasticocean #leonardodicapriofoundation
This morning @blazelucy and I spent two hours with @sustainablecoastlines and around 60 other super cool people at a local beach for a beach cleanup. The main focus was for collecting washed up plastic. After just an hour and a half the group had collected a cubic meter of plastic waste! Around 90% of the collection was from single use plastics. Tiny pieces of broken down bottle tops, straws, lollipop sticks, lots of polystyrene and many items of unrecognisable bits. This time spent has only broadened our views on how this is waste is completely unsustainable and also completely unnecessary.  By 2050 plastic will outweigh the fish in the oceans at the current rate. Fish and other sea life continue to eat the plastic found in the oceans. Plastic has even recently been found in the salt we put in our food.  Consider this, every single piece of plastic that we have ever produced still exists.  I’d like urge all my friends and family to really consider every single use item of plastic and whether they really need it.  You don’t need plastics bags.  You don’t need a straw.  You don’t need a new bottle of water.  You don’t need cling film.  You don’t need to buy fruit and veg wrapped in plastic.  There is a sustainable alternative for all of these. Next time your at a beach remember: TAKE THREE FOR THE SEA Pick up and take away at least three items of plastic away. If we all did this then everyone collectively would make a difference.  On our own we can’t change the world but collectively we can all make an difference.  #takethreeforthesea #sustainablecoastlines #goplasticfreeforthesea #aplasticocean
Filmtipp! #netflix #aplasticocean Sehr erschreckend und einfach enorm wichtig dafür zu sensibilisieren. Hat ihn schon mal jemand mit Grundschülern geschaut? Würde mich mal interessieren. Das ist total spannend! Leider gibt es ihn nicht auf deutsch, nur mit deutschem Untertitel, oder?
#aplasticocean documental obligatorio de ver. Sin palabras, que lastima vivir en un mundo así.. evita los plásticos de un solo uso y los innecesarios #nomasplastico #nomoreplastic #zerowaste #zerowasteespaña
All the blues ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ sometimes it’s hard to see what’s happening with our oceans. Plastic Islands, shark finning, the capture of dolphins and whales for a life in captivity or slaughter... If you love the ocean like I do please support the causes you love ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฆˆ . . . #travel #travelblog #oceanlover #aplasticocean #oceanconservation #leonardodicapriofoundation #lonelywhale #saveouroceans #oceanic #oceana

It's been a quick minute and I've been slacking because #firstpostof2018, but life Is busy, ya know? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ BUT I have still been very aware of consumerism and still highly OBSESSED with every aspect of being vegan ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ‍๐Ÿณ #plantbasedfairy BUT one of my goals for 2018 is to become more aware of consumerism & the effects and consequences there of AS WELL as how to reduce my carbon footprint because #itallstartswithyou. I went to the grocery store yday for a quick pop in and was surprisingly shocked at how much freakin UNNECESSARY plastic pretty much everything has on it for packaging. So guys I'm turning that ๐Ÿ’ก on & taking steps to reducing this. There is a way and if you can't find a way then MAKE a way.  A better future and healthier planet starts with you โœ”๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ I'll update ya, it's not as hard as it looks but that doesn't m an it's convenient #makeithappen#minimalist#sustainability#plastic#aplasticocean#traderjoes#traderjoesvegan#vegan#changetheworld#carbonfootprint#motherearth#gogreen
Naked soap heaven! ๐Ÿ›€ So many flavours and shapes, all packaging free ๐ŸŒŸ #mayrhofen #nakedsoap
Plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. Plastic bags we use in our everyday life take 10-1000 years to decompose, while plastic bottles can take 450 years or more. Here are some helpful tips on how to be Plastic Conscious ๐Ÿ“ท @lessplasticuk #plasticconscious  #lessplastic #plasticfree #singleuseplastic  #reusable #recycle #sustainable #marinelife #ocean #fish #sea #saveourseas #environment #future #crisis #dolphin #whale #parleyfortheoceans #5gyres #oceanic #oceana #leonardodicapriofoundation #aplasticocean #lonelywhale #lessplasticuk
With the @volvooceanrace coming to town, it's nice to know that they're using the event to raise awareness about the amount of plastic in our oceans... ๐ŸŒŠ Did you know?  1. At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year. That's similar to emptying a garbage truck of plastic into an ocean every minute.  2. There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way.  3.The amount of plastic in the world's oceans could increase by a factor of 10 in the next decade...Especially if we don't do anything about it. (Facts from @eco_watch)  Please like and share the word if you're against plastic! And start by refusing plastic bags, straws and bottled water (byob) ๐Ÿ˜Š  @refinedtravellers @urbanspringhk @plasticfreehk @livezero.hk @ecozinemagazine #aplasticocean #thelaststraw #plasticpollution #savetheturtles #plastics #singleuseplastic #stopsucking #oceanrecovery #saveourseas #vor #psa #spreadtheword #stopplastic #eco #livewell #saynotoplastic
๐Ÿข๐ŸŒบ Aloha from Hawaii ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿข . . I’ve been a bit quiet on social media since I arrived in Maui, Hawaii 3 days ago. Why? Because I think it would be an absolute crime to be on my phone๐Ÿ“ฑwhen surrounded with such beautiful scenery and nature. ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿข . . With volcanoes๐ŸŒ‹, bamboo rainforests๐ŸŽ‹, waterfalls, beaches ๐ŸŒŠ and some of THE most impressive wildlife ๐Ÿ‹ there is SO much I’ll be sharing with you when I’m back home. Who else relishes a bit of a digital detox when you travel? ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ“ฑ . . BUT, I couldn’t resist posting one of the highlights from my trip so far, which was stumbling across this guy sunning himself on the beach just before I hopped on a boat with @bluewaterrafting for a whale watching tour. ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ‹ . . Green sea turtles are found in tropical and subtropical waters around the world, but according to local marine biologist Susan Scott ๐ŸŒŠ, only Hawaii's greens routinely bask on beaches. ๐Ÿขโ›…๏ธ . . Researchers still don't know why Hawaiian green turtles rest ashore when others don't - perhaps they’re soaking up the Hawaiian vibes and slow pace of life? ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ . . After watching so many heartbreaking documentaries like @aplasticocean and the video I shared on my page last month of a baby turtle stuck in a plastic bottle (if you haven’t seen it check it out), which *disclaimer* will make you think all marine life is doomed ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฅคit meant so much to see what I can only hope was a happy and healthy turtle ๐Ÿข on an unpolluted beach, yep for once I found a beach with only sand and no rubbish! โŒ๐Ÿ—‘ . . Plus, some kind person had drawn a circle in the sand around the turtle ๐Ÿข which indicated a respectful distance to stand without causing any disturbance. ๐Ÿข It was such a simple but effective idea. . . Today this little guy reminded me why I care so much for our planet ๐ŸŒŽ, why I make an effort to reduce my plastic consumption and why we should respect the sea. ๐ŸŒŠ We only have one planet and it’s
Being near the ocean provides a sense of tranquility, openness, depth and wisdom. A meditative state of calm focus and gentle awareness. ๐Ÿ“ท @maik_burghardt #plasticconscious #plastic #singleuseplastic #saveouroceans #ocean #water #earth #planet #protect #marinelife #fish #dolphin #whale #nature #tranquility #sea #blue #wave #aplasticocean #5gyres #parleyfortheoceans #leonardodicapriofoundation #oceanconservation #oceana #oceanic
"In order to work out where we need to be in the future, it often helps to take stock of the past. I'm not one to dwell on history, but 2017 was a year of major achievements in the fight to turn the tide on single-use plastic." Read my thoughts in my latest blog.

From space junk to plastic found miles deep in the ocean, Why are we so trashy? Back in November I was in Costa Rica for a week. I remember standing on the beach looking out over a breathtaking view. Then my focus changed. All I could see were hundreds of drinking coconuts purchased and left behind. All complete with a plastic straw. Which will undoubtedly end up in the belly of some creature. This is happening in a country known for “pura vida”. Single serving plastic has to go y’all. With a little foresight, there is always an alternative. I encourage everyone to drive their partners/families as crazy as I drive Jerry with my anti-plastic rhetoric ๐ŸŒŽ ๐Ÿ’•  #aplasticocean #saveourplanet  #bethechange @aplasticocean
