Yesterday, we stopped by our favorite local diner. It was slow... almost closing time, so we got chatting with the owner. We asked him: "Can we pick your brain as a small business owner?What costs or burdens might there be for proprietors like yourself in switching from plastic to stainless steel straws? What would make you want to do it or not want to do it?" ...
He scratched his beard, and said, "Yeah, I was just at a new bar the other night and I got a drink with a stainless steel straw. It was cool. I mean, I don't really see it as big deal. They could go right in the dishwasher, next to the silverware." ... He paused. ...
"You know, we're an Alameda County Green Business. If you really wanted a lot of businesses to make the change, you should get that requirement added to the certification process for restaurants." WOW. The systems change idea came from him! What big parts of our take-make-waste system could YOU change where you live?⠀

Went for a walk around an ocean park in Ventura, CA and found this strange scene of thoughtlessness.
💩
It didn't look like much but picking up all the little bits from where I stood to the trashcan resulted in hundreds of tiny bits of rubbish. After I was done combing the unmindful crime scene dozens of birds flew down to check out what was going on. I've noticed this happen quite a few times immediately after an area is cleaned up, I imagine it has something to do with trampling around on the ground? Anyone else noticed this?

Summer is coming and I miss my mom a lot and her garden full of these precious strawbs 🍓! Last summer we made simple sun tea with lemon, mint, and honey 🍯. The recipe is the archives on the blog. Have you ever grown food instead of a lawn? #foodnotlawns #urbangardening #organicgardening #organicstrawberry #suntea #southernbelle #circularmindset #plasticfree #homesteading #refusesingleuse #circularliving #circularhome #kindplanet

Can a giant beached whale illustrate the plastic pollution problem? A new art piece by @greenpeaceph was installed at the Sea Side Beach Resort in Naic, Cavite. Photo by @vincecinches #plasticpollutes #SaveTheOcean #SaveTheAnimals #BreakFreeFromPlastic

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!

God morgon alla fantastiska!🔆
En ny #plasticfreetuesday är här och idag uppmanar jag er alla att om ni ser en plastpåse eller plastkasse på vift- plocka upp den. För om vi struntar i det kommer de att hamna i våra vattendrag, sjöar och hav. På sin väg dit skadar de både djur och natur! Vi måste alla ta ansvar för vår Jord och de som förhoppningsvis ska leva här efter oss! Tillsammans kan vi förändra!🌸

En la vida también hay cosas feas, pero es necesario verlas y mostrarlas para darnos cuenta qué cosas queremos cambiar y mejorar. Por ejemplo, toda la basura que hay en este este pedazo de la playa de Huicha. Son principalmente botellas de plástico que trae la corriente desde la ciudad de Ancud, Chiloé. #ancud #chiloe #nomasplastico #plasticpollutes #plastico #aPlasticOcean #reciclaje #reutilizar #♻ por favor! 🙏

Made some more deodorant and toothpowder. This time I tried rose, lavender, and lemongrass for my deodorant. I tested various combinations of those three and decided I liked all three together the best. I wish more of the rose scent would come through, but maybe it'll smell different when I put it on my skin.
.
While I love to think of this as a zerowaste solution for toothpaste and deodorant, I do have to buy the essential oil in little glass jars and the bentonite clay came in a large "recyclable" plastic jug. I'll consider it low waste for now and I LOVE reusing these glass jars.

Greenpeace spoofs Coca Cola advert to illustrate grim reality of plastic pollution. @cocacola produces 100 billion bottles per year. 14% of The plastics in the ocean is made up of plastic bottles like theirs. It's time for them and others like @pepsi @spawater__ #chaudfontaine @lipton to stop producing drinks in plastic bottles and start looking for alternatives. #stopsingleuseplastic #stopsucking #plasticpollutes #kitesurfing #kitesurfersunitedagainstoceanpollution #saltwater #cleanseas #marinelitter

Luckily, Garth has gotten so good at untangling plastic from coral, he's able to untie his friends from plastic when they get stuck 👍🏼 #garththeshark #watercolor #plasticpollutes #sharkeducation #jab

Had a lovely afternoon with these two beauties.
Not only they own a cozy Eco friendly and plastic free cafe, but they also feed and rescue stray dogs and cats on the island.
When you're in Bohol, don't forget to visit @mosiacafe. Their cakes, coffee, and ice cream taste heavenly. Trust me. :) #plasticfreebohol #bohol #ecofriendlycafe #ecofriendly #plasticfreeforthesea

Telah tampak kerusakan di darat dan di laut disebabkan karena perbuatan tanganmanusia; Allah menghendaki agar mereka merasakan sebagian dari (akibat)perbuatan mereka, agar mereka kembali (kejalan yang benar). Qs. Arrum 41.

Menurut tafsir kontemporerQS AR RUM ayat 41-42 bisa menjadi dalil tentang kewajiban tentang melestarikan lingkungan hidup, sebab terjadinya berbagai macam bencana juga karena ulah manusia yang mengeksploitasi alam tanpa di imbangi dengan upaya pelestarian.

Ok... Look, read and think.
Then let's learn to improve the lite of me to the earth and God.
