Our beautiful oceans are under threat: last week Newcastle University's Dr Alan Jamieson revealed evidence that plastic has been found inside the world's deepest living organisms. Visit ncl.ac.uk/press/news/2017/11/plasticoceans for further information. . Photo by Tim Dixon ๐Ÿ“ธ
Using a soap bar is one of the easiest swaps you can make to live a bit more sustainably everyday! ๐Ÿ™Œ You don't only reduce the obvious disposable plastic bottle that liquid soap and shower gel come in, but you also get rid of all the invisible microplastic and liquid plastic ingredients that - according to UN studies - can make up to 90% of the product! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ (For all the German speakers: check podcast episode #003 to find out more!) [Day 4/30 of my #plasticchallenge ]
This really upsets me! Everywhere I look cigarette butts on the ground even when there are bins a stone throw away. People, if you throw butts on the ground they end up in the ocean! Cigarette filter are comprised of thousands of little particles of plastic. One solid filter ends up breaking down into thousands of tiny fibres that end up in the marine environment. Not cool! Even when your throwing them on the ground in the city guess what happens when it rains... they end up down the drain and into the ocean! Microplastics and microfibres pose a risk to marine organisms. One smoked cigarette butt in a single litre of water is sufficient to kill both marine and freshwater fish also other animals end up swallowing this stuff, It’s fucked! Throw your butts in the bin. #care #wildlife #giveashit #binyourbutts #makeadifference #ocean #sydney #australia #beach #city #rubbish #trash #dotherightthing #marinelife #pollution #microplastic #microfiber #poison #litter #notcool
Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it is not there #plastic. #microplastic has a size of salt and pepper flakes and if the #sea contains it, so do the products we harvest from it. According to research, shellfish consumers are likely to ingest up to 11,000 small pieces of plastic each year (by University of Ghent, 2014). Btw shellfish are not the only marine organisms we like to eat. Do I need to mention anymore?  #humanfoodchain #ocean #pollution #protectwhatyoulove #stoppollution #itsnotok #itsnottoolate #education #awareness #seashepherddive #seashepherd #take3forthesea #bannedfromthebeach #foodpoisen #marinelife #weallenjoytheocen #beach #surf #surfing #diving #snorkeling #swimming #inplastic #oceanconservation #oceanwarrior #marinebiologist
Tuesday, mmm, starting another 120 rounds of laundry trials, not waiting for someone else to research laundry as a source of microfibres in our oceans, facing the issue head on, seeking solutions and knowledge. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ”ฌ #weknowfun ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . #oceanlovers #protectwhatyoulove #microplastic #microfibres #plasticfreeseas #plasticfreeoceans #ethicalfashion #sustainablefashion #sustainableswimwear #oceanremedy #knowledgeiskey #scienceoffashion
Scientists say they have found plastics inside the stomach of some of least understood animals on the planet — the crustaceans who live on the deepest ocean floors - Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/world/article185119838.html#storylink=cpy
"Not all that glitters is gold" reads the last sentence of my letter that got published in the Metro newspaper today. #dippingmytoes #dippingmytoesandnature #microbeads #microplastic #glitter #notallthatglittersisgold #banglitter #banmicrobeads #plasticwaste #sealife #protectouroceans #turtle #metronews #ecowarriors #savetheworld
We don’t need #glitter it only ends up as #microplastic but we do need our #oceans and its #wildlife. #glitter poisons our #oceans and kills our #wildlife please don’t use it. We need to ban #microbeads read full article in @metro.co.uk #london today and help save our #planet thank you

As shiny and appealing as it looks, glitter consists of mircoplastics - which ends up harming our rivers and oceans.  Until companies are being held responsible and the microplastic ban spreading throughout Europe has expanded, you can help and avoid glitter!  If you really need some sparkle in your life, here are some eco-friendly alternatives:  www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/42038411/the-eco-friendly-guide-to-glitter . #noglitter #shinefromwithin #microplastic #nomicroplastic #plasticfree #protectwhatyoulove #oceanlove #ecofriendly #recylce #reduce #reuse #glitter #ecoglitter

@blueplanetsociety #repost  In January a very ill Cuvier's beaked whale, a species that feeds in the deep ocean, was euthanised in Norway. During the necropsy 30 plastic bags were found in its stomach. Cuvier's beaked whales have a pair of ventral throat grooves that help to create a vacuum within their mouths allowing them to suck in cephalopods (squid, cuttlefish etc) their targeted prey. It is thought this whale was mistaking plastic for food.

Thank you @blue.planet.2 for showing a couple of millions of people in the UK how plastic pollution(micro plastic) is slowly killing the marine creatures and birds ๐Ÿ’ฆ . . . . .  #marinelife  #savetheplanet  #beachtrash #plastic #microplastic #plasticbottles #beach #surf #surfgirls #seacreature #surfgirl #sealife #protectocean #saveocean #beachcleanup #beachlife #avoidplastic #dontlitter #ecofriendly #ecosurfgirls #ecoconscious #plasticpollution #ecosurfgirls #spain #dontlitter #beachcleanup #marinecreatures #blueplanet
Listen up! This piece ”Skip the straw” is free for anybody who wants it! . I will send you the file (jpg or pdf) and you can print it as a poster (A3) or anything smaller, like a flyer, for example. Or just share it on social media! I would especially love for restaurants and bars to put this up for customers to see. . Plastic straws, which are often so wastefully used, cause horrible damage to marine life - especially turtles...๐Ÿ’” Let's spread the word! Skip the plastic straw!!! . DM me if you want this picture, this is my contribution towards a cleaner and healthier environment for all of us to live in :) . . . . #oceanlove #saveourocean #oceanart #protectwhatyoulove #saveourseas #thenextwave #oceanoptimism #oceandefenders #nobluenogreen #marineart #artforchange #cleanocean #cleansea #plasticproblems #conservation #microplastic #microbeads #ouroceansourfuture #oneocean #fiveminutebeachcleanup #keepouroceansclean #plasticpollution #skipthestraw #singleuseplastic #strawssucks #noexcuseforsingleuse #stopsucking #marineconservation #ourocean
Marine debris in general, and plastics in particular, have been described as ‘some of the greatest environmental concerns of our times, along with climate change, ocean acidification and loss of biodiversity’***, yet the big 4 single-use plastic items (plastic bags, bottles, straws and cups) are the easiest to tackle immediately by each of us taking small steps to #stopandswitch!
