Let's all work together and help reduce littering and plastic consumption so that our big and little animal friends alike do not become victims of careless waste disposal. If you think our streets are polluted there are giant floating trash islands out there. Happy Earth Day 2018.

Happy earth day!!! 🌊There are an estimated 270,000 tons of plastic floating in our oceans and nearly 700 different marine species have been affected and are threatened by plastic debris (according to researchers at Plymouth University)
🌊Here in Florida, we’re surrounded on 3 sides by water so let’s keep our beaches and oceans free of litter, ESPECIALLY plastic!

Fact 49: 60% of the ocean surface area is occupied by ocean gyres. A gyre is the system of surface currents set up by the winds and rotation of the Earth, creating a large whirlpool-type pattern over the subtropical latitudes. The circular movement of water piles up anything floating in the water including human made plastics. The North Pacific Gyre is home to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and similar patches are found in each of the 5 ocean gyres pictured. Generally calm winds in the gyre centers combined with strong solar heating set up calm, relatively undisturbed seas. This acts as a barrier to nutrient delivery to the ocean surface limiting how much life can be supported; ocean gyres are thus analogous to deserts on land. 📸whatarethe7continents.com #saveour70 #oceanfacts #oceangyres #plasticpollution #physicaloceanogrpahy #actuallivingscientist #saltlife #learnsomethingnew #factfriday

Меня не много вещей раздражают. Но есть одно, что меня легко выводит из себя - ящик на кухне с пакетами. Это сформировалось само собой ещё в детстве. Я помню такой ящик, где были укомплектованы пакеты и изредка доставался один. Возвращалось же на его место пять или даже больше. После того, как мы все переехали - весь ящик с пакетами благополучно выбросился. Все, что нажито годами, мы выбросили в секунду. И в новой квартире легко нашли новую шухлядку, где бы пакетики удобно хранились. А теперь вдумайтесь! Полиэтиленовые пакеты впервые были произведены в 1957 году. Это всего-то 60 лет назад. За 60 лет их накопилось столько, что образовались целые острова мусора в океанах. Вас ничего не смущает? Это океаны, на которые вы ездите отдыхать. Это океаны, в которых плавает рыба, которую вы покупаете на ужин. За 60 лет мы создали 6(!) плавучих островов. Будущее, которое нам показывает Голливуд на экранах в кинотеатрах уже давно не будущее. Это наша реальность. Мы хотели упростить жизнь и создали одноразовую посуду. А теперь не знаем как бороться с последствиями этой "упрощённой жизни". Я против пакетов и пластика. И даже, если не все продукты помещаются в сумку, мне не составляет сложности донести часть в руках. (Без разницы это связка бананов, шампунь или туалетная бумага). Почему основы потребления ещё не изучают в школах? Почему не все родители объясняют важность осознанного потребления? Почему так сложно выключить воду, пока чистите зубы? Почему так важно брать из бутиков фирменные пакеты? Какой прикол в воздушных шариках, которые, кстати тоже не разлагаются за сутки... А ещё воздушные фонарики - 2 минуты романтики и настроения - а потом этот мусор падает где-то в лесу или в поле. 😭😭😭
Я за тканевые сумки, многоразовую посуду, переработку бумаги и тд - проще говоря, я за осознанное потребление и чувство ответственности перед своими действиями. Сами подумайте, с 50-х годов количество потребляемого человеком увеличилось. Так сколько мусорных островов будет через ещё 60 лет?

Hey Guys! There’s a NEW VIDEO on our YouTube! We’re going to start highlighting three items that you didn’t know are bad for the environment (or maybe you did, but it’s always good to refresh your memory)! I’ll also provide alternatives to those items that are more sustainable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly!! LINK IS IN OUR BIO!!! #Youtube #GoGreen #EcoFriendly #Sustainable #Biodegradable #PalmOil #Microbeads #Plastic #Pollution #OceanGyres #EnvironmentalScience #EnvironmentalStudies #Conservation #SavethePlanet #EarthConscious #MotherEarth #EarthDay #Gyres #OceanPollution #PlasticPollution #Reduce #Reuse #Recycle #Candy #PeanutButter #Chocolate #Orangutan

Plastic is ending up in our oceans.
Due to weather effects, such as sunlight and wave action, reduces to microplastic and nanoplastic. SMALL PARTICLES.
Leading to pollution, taking into account that our oceans occupies 72% of the earth’s surface, and it is our principal source of oxygen 🌊✨🌐 FOLLOW US TO KEEP LEARNING

Ugh. This is an obvious answer. Plastic bags are the absolute WORST option to carry home my organic vegetables. Right...? Right!? How Green Is It... to use plastic grocery bags?

ALWAYSSS say no to plastic when you can, but any plastic bags you may have *even from product packaging* bring to your local supermarket, most all should have plastic bag recycling by now, usually in the front entrance, ask if you cant find it 🎶if youre store doesnt have one, speak to the manager and voice your concern

there is no "away" [law of conservation of energy, energy can be neither created no destroyed ONLY TRANSFORMED❗trash has to go SOMEWHERE, unless we start using biodegradable plastics such as hemp plastics, our biosphere will just keep filling and filling with inorganic & toxic materials until we reach a tipping point, the tipping point we are steadily approaching❗❗ do your part by USING LESS, BUYING PRODUCTS THAT MAINTAIN SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES, RECYCLING, USING GLASS WHENEVER POSSIBLE, DO NOT BUY PROCESSED FOODS WRAPPED IN PLASTICS, EAT REAL FOOD LOOSE FROM THE PRODUCE SECTION, USE PAPER BAGS TO STORE RICE, NUTS, SEEDS ETC . . . AND IF U NEED A BLUNT, TRY TO USE GRABBA/FRONTO OR BACKWOODS 5 PACK WRAPPED IN PAPER (seems to have a plasticy compound in it though).......... MY DREAM IS TO grow my own tobacco plant🎶🎶🎶🎶

Voted by Condé Nast as one of the worlds most beautiful beaches we found a devastating amount of rubbish. No five star hotel means no one cleans the waste and in a few minutes we found hundreds of bits of plastic. I cannot bear plastic bottles, straws or food wrappers and seek to avoid them at all costs. I find single use plastic utterly insidious. It is baffling to me how we have become so mindless of our horribly polluting waste. #notostraws #nowaterbottles #nosingleuseplastic #zerowaste #oceanpollution #oceangyres #plasticpollutes #plasticfree #ecofriendly #refuseplastic

Pick up three... or six. Plastic that finds its way to our ocean can be mistaken for food and ingested. It breaks down into smaller particles but it never breaks down completely, there is no away 🐳

Planning a unit of work on sustainability involving plastic waste and the ocean Gyres. This image will resonate with learners and allow them to understand the effects plastic has on our marine life and oceans. What can we replace plastic with to reduce plastic waste in our oceans? #productdesign #industrialdesign #Edinburgh #EdinburghUniversity #Learning #Art #Design #sustainability #findingnemo #nemo #dory #findingdory #pixar #waste #plastic #oceangyres

This post is an acknowledgement to last week's #OurOceans Conference, in Malta.
I have listened to the most recent stated "commitments" 🌐🏭 from nations leaders, companies and organisations, with the purpose and attempt to save our oceans of our negligence from pollution impacts.
Hopefully, "these are not just words" but to be made real actions asap...which should be about...⏳Yesterday⌛.
I make it my request as: Earth citizen, consumer, sustainability researcher, scubadiver and sea lover.
Nevertheless, I am sharing my joy of watching this cormorant getting its diner, as an example to us, human kind: Get what you just need to feed you...without wasting...🐟+🐟+🐟=🙌🍣🍜🍛👌
Citing the marine scholar Prof. Daniel Pauly, "...sustainable is what may become what it was before, otherwise it cannot be called sustainable"
