#PlasticSwearJar

MOST RECENT

One of our amazing friends @sunnyyddee shared what she and her surf student did before AND after their surf session! We love for inspiring others to follow her example!
Here are 9 good reasons to join the 10 Pieces movement:

IMPACT - Less litter on the beach & in the ocean brings benefit to animals and humans. Not only is litter unsightly and capable of ruining our experience in nature, it also poses danger to animals that may ingest it. By removing litter, we are ensuring that it doesn’t end up in our oceans.
SCALE - Ten pieces sounds like a nominal number, but it’s scaled immensely when the collective power of a group of surfers joins in. With a group of just 12 beach-goers the 10 pieces quickly turns into 120. And if there’s another group of 12 vacationers at the same place the next week, that’s another 120 pieces of litter. It soon adds up.
EASE - Ten pieces of litter can be collected in under 60 seconds; anyone can do it, alone or with friends, on an organized excursion or not, and it costs nothing.
OUR PLANET'S FUTURE - As more surfers, beach-goers & vacationers enter our salty sandy environments, so does infrastructure and therefore non-biodegradable waste. Litter control programs are therefore critically relevant for future generations.
LEADING BY EXAMPLE - When vacationers see locals respecting their home by collecting litter, it encourages them to be responsible about their waste disposal. With this understanding, they can lobby for better litter disposal methods for their communities, and they also become less likely to throw litter into their environment themselves.
LEAVING NO TRACE - We are all accustomed to the phrase “take only photographs, leave only footprints." Well we have expanded the “Leave No Trace” concept, to “take only photographs and 10 pieces of litter, and leave only footprints.” FORWARD PLANNING - There’s no point collecting litter if it’s disposed of incorrectly. Before offering 10 Pieces on a beach day, we ensure that we can dispose of litter responsibly. In some cases, this means transporting it to the nearest recycling place.
INSPIRING OTHERS - We encourage other surfers to build the 10 Pieces initiative into their surfs!

Still diggin my stainless straws 1 year later... They came in a pack of 3 with a little pipe cleaner for washing. Two live near the forks and another is always in my bag. Refusing plastic straws at restaurants and bars is a little something we can do to show our love for our glorious Mama Earth! #Repost @changingtidesfoundation + art by @beachdontkrillmyvibe 👌🏽

Today, February 3rd the we celebrate the first-ever International
Straw-Free Day.
In the US alone, 500 million plastic straws are used every day, then they go in the trash, they are not recycled. A straw you used 5 years ago might be floating around somewhere in the ocean contributing to marine pollution and disease.
This needs to stop! Say NO to plastic straws. It’s easy and today is the perfect day to start: when you order a drink or water today, say “no straw please”. If that makes you feel good, do it again tomorrow and the next day! You can also take the #pledgeagainstplasticstraws with our friends at @simplystraws and they will send you a free glass straw! The @lonelywhale’s #stopsucking campaign is another great way to get motivated. We must stop adding to this terrible global problem that is killing our marine life and polluting our beautiful oceans. The time is NOW! Join us!

Class project: Saved every piece of plastic I used for 3 days straight, and had to put $1 in a jar for every single piece. Pretty interesting to see how much plastic I used every day without noticing. 🙄#plasticswearjar #plasticswearjarchallenge

Happy Friday!!! We have had such a blast taking over the simply straws Instagram and letting you into our world this week! Please check out @changingtidesfoundation to see how you can get involved in our projects! Here is ambassador and pro-snowboarder @helenschettini showing us how to Friday with her new @simplystraws spill-proof lid!

Day 4 of the @changingtidesfoundation Instagram takeover! Whether in the mountains or the sea, we love being outside! As such, we feel responsible for protecting our planet and its inhabitants. If we each did our part, the world would be better. All of our actions matter, ripples make waves! Want to know where to start? Take the #pledgeagainstplasticstraws or try the #plasticswearjar challenge! #wheresimplystraws

Day 3 of the @changingtidesfoundation Instagram takeover: Adventure Consciously!! As travelers, we have the ability to significantly reduce the waste we leave behind on our journeys, it just takes a little bit of attention. We encourage you to do your best to #adventureconsciously! Here are some things we use when we travel that help reduce our waste:
1. BYO-Straw: We always pass on plastics when it comes to sipping beverages! @simplystraws are the perfect solution.
2 BYO-Bamboo: we carry our bamboo utensils these with us everywhere, whether we're traveling or just in our daily lives! Slide a @simplystraws glass straw in your kit and you're ready to go!
3. BYO-Bottle: On our first project trip to Mexico, we counted how many plastic water bottles we "would have used" and between 6 people, we saved over 70 plastic water bottles in just 6 days. Trash collection and pollution are major issues in developing countries, so say no to plastics and bring your reusable water bottle and water filter. We choose @mizulife & @sawyerproducts for our trips.
4. BYO-Bag: This one couldn't be more obvious. We use our @bagito_bags everyday
5. BYO-Screen: Mineral, reef-safe sunscreens with eco-friendly packaging like @loveavasol are a must!
.
The key is: be prepared. There is so much more we can do, but these are great places to start so that we can leave the places we visit, just like we found them! Make sure you visit our website and check out our adventure consciously shop for all of these options and more! 100% of profits benefit our organization so you can #purchasewithpurpose

Last year, a group of adventuring water women decided to collaborate to help those in need in the places we visit! We also wanted to present travelers the opportunity to serve naturally & add purpose to their own adventures by making our programs visitor/volunteer friendly. This is how @changingtidesfoundation was born! Here are two of our mermaids, @leahloves & @ledarling sipping on a coconut on the first ever Changing Tides Foundation trip for the Clean Mexi-Agua project which, to date, has provided access to 671 million gallons of clean drinking water to rural communities in coastal Jalisco, Mexico! Check out #CleanMexiAgua & #ChangingTidesFoundation to learn more! 📷 @jianca_lazarus 💦 🇲🇽 💃🏽 ✈️ 🏄🏻‍♀️
