Plastic Ocean

Baskin Robbins? Or baskin in the ocean... while we have to reduce our own use of plastic, large companies have to begin taking responsibility too.
It's easy to bring your own spoon with you for ice cream 🍦 try it next time, and send @baskinrobbins a message 🍨👌🏻 #seashepherd

Maui County in Hawaii passed legislation outlawing the use of polystyrene foam food containers. The county was the first in Hawaii to successfully pass the bill through the council. The new bill extends to the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Kaho’olawe.

According to the legislation, the use and distribution of polystyrene foam containers will now be prohibited for both food distributors and retailers.

Considering the great alternatives to polystyrene foam that are now available and comparative in price, the new bill is a victory for everyone – and a huge step forward in the matter of plastic pollution in Hawaii. Hopefully, it will also be an inspiration for other places all around the world!

This is the face @pickup1million makes when finding bottles in areas already cleaned up multiple times. Now if these worthless pieces of single-use excuses to use oil actually had value would you find them polluting every walk of life?

If you paid a quarter deposit for each bottle would you want to recoup that? The larger issue is this OILY rubbish isn't infinitely recyclable which means it's eventually destined for a landfill or waterway. There's currently a two million dollar prize to help solve this problem with the New Plastics Economy as billions of dollars are lost every year creating this resource that is used once and thrown away.
😦
It's important to note that multi billion dollar statistic doesn't even account for the environmental impacts of single use plastic. That's right there's no corporate responsibility for creating this toxic waste...from plastic toxins leaching from landfills into waterways, photodegradation breaking them down into smaller bits of fish food, to the insane amount of oil used to produce and transport this rubbish as well as taking 5 bottles of water to make just a single bottle! Trashsanity? Yep.
💡
HEY quit bumming me out you say? There are things you can do NOW to help tide this insanity. Refuse single use plastic bottles whenever you can, carry around a reusable wherever you go, help keep your community cleaner than you found it and spread the message to friends and family.
🌍
Check out what @pickup1million is up to, their count is currently at 13,000 bottles! Thanks for tagging us with your plastic face, I've nominated your photo for the #TrashMonster Trashlympics event. Good luck!

This will be the third summer in #newtowncreek for our beloved #livingdock - We are happy to see the #spartina grasses coming back and the dock has been successful is attracting #ribbedmussels - which is awesome. Less exciting is the constant presence of styrofoam materials that float in and hang out inside the habitat units-clogging up the grasses and posing threat to wildlife hanging out below the surface.

Protect what you love especially when it can't protect itself.

I caught this majestic turtle posted over at @take3 and originally came from @wwf_australia, how stunning is this?

It's #marinedebrismonday .... I picked up this handful of #microplastics yesterday. When I see these floating in the ocean is it soo easy to understand how they are mistaken for food by wildlife. Animals and sea creatures are evolutionarily trained to identify food by color (this is why humans see more shades of green than any other) but do not have the ability to differentiate plastics from organic material. Let's give them a fighting chance and stop this at the source!

I ADMIRE how water softens the edges and blurs the lines where it meets the continents.

Please join us the next 100 days in an exploration of your relationship to water that can be life changing and planet healing. Please add #100bluereminders to your post to connect the #wildbluesea community around the North Atlantic, our shared ocean. 💙💦 Lizzie in UK lights the way with this explanation: "#BlueMindCollective have crowd sourced 100 words to represent benefits of time spent in water centric spaces! Today's word is ADMIRATION.
What do you admire about water/our water planet?
How does water foster the quality of admiration within you? Through #100DaysofBlue we aim to encourage you to get near in on or under water... your water... be it lake, river, ocean or perhaps urban blue such as a pool or float tank - mix it up a bit... drink more water, eat watery foods, celebrate water"
Let's #divedeeper together!

Here's a few pictures from the shoreline clean-up and #BioBlitz at Connor Bros. Nature Preserve yesterday 🚮. A huge shout-out to the volunteers, and other organizations (@naturetrustnb, @cojodiving and @fundydiscoveryaquarium) who made this event successful! In total, ~10 garbage bags of debris was removed. ✔

Dear @canadabay council, please provide a #recycling sulo bin instead of two rubbish sulo bins at Halliday park so people using the playground/beach/dog park and cycling/running track can dispose of their recyclables properly (as well as the wildlife warriors that remove it from the #ocean) I either have to take the #recyclable #marinedebris that I collect home or put in a rubbish bin 😭🤦🏽‍♀️ TIA!!! #5minutebeachcleanup #take3 #take3forthesea #2minutebeachclean

This time last year I was in Taiwan undertaking a public artwork about marine plastic pollution. These university students came to help me in a beach clean to collect materials for the work. I loved how the beachclean itself became performance like in its imagery. #Marinelitter #Marineplastic #Marinedebris #plasticpollution #oceanpollution #oceanplastic #beachplastic
