Today’s haul! The beach was a bit busy so we didn’t go far. Tons of cigarette butts in the bottom of the bag with a couple notable finds being the insole of a shoe and an entire phone case. Odd things to lose as I don’t imagine they were intentionally left behind 😆

Just a small walk on #canggu beach and it shows this reality of #plasticstraws. The use of plastic in south East Asia is tremendous, and straws are given out pretty much with every drink. But the good news is that there are good initiatives where many places are using #bamboo, #paper or #cornstarch (#iamnotplastic) straws instead. Bit by bit we can make changes and avoid these ending up in the sea. ~ Una pequeña caminata por la playa de Canggu y surge la cruda realidad de las #bombillasplásticas. El uso de plástico en el sud-este asiático es tremendo, y dan #bombillas con casi cada bebida. Pero las buenas noticias es que hay buenas iniciativas, donde en vez de plásticos, usan de Bambú, papel o de Maizena. Poco a poco se pueden hacer estos cambios y evitar que estos terminen en el mar.

It says "collect and get rewards" on it. Well I collected it from the ground... not sure that's what they meant.

I had cacao today too. However I make mine with oat milk and it's delicious ❤ also kinder and gentler on our planet than cow's milk. What's your favourite plant based milk?

Spent roughly an hour walking the parking lot and area around my neighborhood (it’s small) nearly filled this bucket 1/3rd of the way. It saddens me that so much garbage was just tossed and never picked up. It was a lot of small pieces of plastic, nails, cigarette butts, baggies, etc.
I finally got fed up seeing all the trash. So I got a grabber (safety first) and decided to make a difference. A few weeks ago I picked up about half this amount.
Little cigarette butts add up but also don’t take much room in the bucket.
Moral of this post: throw your garbage away ~ It adds up. We must do something to help this earth out. No matter how small it counts and maybe it will inspire someone else. I was inspired by @healspokane

Found this #kinderschokobon wraper on the floor in a supermarket... no comment

Because today I want to talk about gratitude. Do you keep a gratitude journal? I've been doing daily gratitude lists on and off for the past few years and it's such a beautiful practice.
Today I am grateful for the organic, healthy food that is available to me. I'm grateful for the nap that I had time and space for this afternoon. And I'm grateful to be part of this inspiring community that shows their love for Mama Earth.

Now it's your turn, what are you grateful for? Share three things and also tag a friend to find out what is on their list today. I tag @naomibowler and @azusally.

Another handful from the same spot like yesterday. Picked up another one of those coffee cups. Swipe to see what is says on it - ironically!

#wepickupplastic

I'm about as confused as the little fruit on this snack bar packaging... all this litter (and more) was spread on about 5qm and it took me less than 1 minute to collect it. Give something back to Mama Earth today and pick up some trash you see around. And share with #wepickupplastic if you like. Thanks and have an amazing Sunday 💙

It's a hot hot hot day here in Leipzig. Dropping your coffee cup on the street.... is not so hot. And it's not cool either! So please just stop.

#wepickupplastic

As a community we removed over 29,000 pieces of litter during @plasticfreejuly! Our goal was 10,000 and we've absolutely smashed it 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS to every single person who did a #microcleanup during Plastic Free July, took a photo and posted it to social media using #take3forthesea.
Through this citizen science we can really see the difference that a simple idea like Take 3 for the Sea has! The power is in our hands to make change 🙂

The winners of the Take 3 X @JocoCups Plastic Free July Survival Kit competition are Sophia King, Grazyna Mackiewicz and Sara (@life_islikeacamera)! Your litter art shows us the beauty that can be salvaged, even in the worst cases.
Please send a direct message to our page to claim your Take 3 for the Sea Plastic Free Survival Kit and Joco Cup prize pack.

Told my dear friend @naomibowler this morning about my idea to create some recycled/upcycled merch for #wepickupplastic. Then listened to @iamsahararose podcast and she talked about how we need to share our ideas and bounce them off each other so they can develop and bloom (this is also super in line with my two personal guiding words for 2018: create and share). So here goes. Would you be interested in some goodies created by me? First I thought about creating cool reusable water bottles but shipping those around is just too expensive. So maybe some tote bags, mesh bags for fruit/veggie market trips, travel cutlery kits? What do you think?

#daim it's hot in the Netherlands... (was that a bad play on words?) Is it hot and summery where you are too? Perfect time for an ice cream at the canals of Utrecht (with @xjusstine) and picnics in shady parcs. But please leave nothing behind!
