A new study conducted by academics from the University of California and Santa Barbara leaves us with new information and statistics regarding the plastic pollution of our planet. The researchers discovered that the total amount of plastic we have produced is equivalent in weight to one billion elephants and it will last for hundreds or even thousands of years, since plastics are not biodegradable and, therefore, remain where they are discarded virtually forever. To put that into context, it would be enough trash to bury Manhattan in more than two miles of trash!

But that is still not the end of the disturbing news – the production of plastic is expected to accelerate further over the next decades. The amount of plastic produced is projected to reach 34 billion by the year 2050.

A new global study published yesterday broke new ground by revealing the end-of-life fate all mass-produced plastics ever manufactured. Study authors estimated that 8,300 million metric tons of virgin plastics have been produced to date and the vast majority has ended up in our environment.
Main points of the new research include:
About 91 percent of plastic isn't recycled, and only 12 percent has been incinerated.
79 percent of plastic went into landfills or the natural environment.
Plastics’ largest market is packaging, an application whose growth was accelerated by a global shift from reusable to single-use containers.

If not now then when? I ask the government of #lagosnigeria when will you ban plastic bottles packaging and bags? This is not about responsible disposal of waste , there is no away with plastic, if you do not have a viable recycling scheme you should not allow it into your ecosystem. All the plastic in this picture is headed for the ocean where it would wreck havoc on the marine life and ultimately on our life's . #cocacola #shoprite #uacfoods and others should not be allowed to profit from our destruction. There is nothing the common man can do he simply doesn't have a choice but government has a duty and big business can make the choice #banplastic #banplasticbags #cleanocean #plasticpollutes #ecoblogger #lagosboy #ekoonibaje #climatechange #apairofshortstochangeourworld

Popped into @marksandspencer to buy their #zerowaste avocados - they have recently switched from stickers to laser etched labels to save 10 tonnes of paper and 5 tonnes of glue each year (😱) and whilst I applaud this change in the right direction I feel that it's a drop in the ocean of the biohazard that is the M&S foodhall - for a supermarket that claims "sustainability is at the heart of their business" and 'Plan A because there is no plan B' I don't think there can be a more overpackaged supermarket; just next to these were packaged varieties and just take a look at the tomatoes on the shelves above! What is also massively irritating is that the loose avocados are 30p more expensive than those wrapped in plastic 😤 I mean seriously what is the point?! I imagine that 95% of customers would go for the cheaper ones everytime... #zerowastefail (btw I left without buying anything - too annoyed to give them my money!)

Over the weekend our small but productive Mallacoota family team embarked on several outdoor adventures after quite a prolonged dry spell, as always they managed to fill a couple of SS MD collection bags.
On Saturday as a reward fo their efforts they spied a couple of Southern Right Whales off the entrance at Mallacoota.
This definitely warranted a closer look, so the small crew launched the inflatable and motored out into the cold waters off Bass Straight.
They managed to half fill a debris bag with the 'usual' boat launching facility suspects ... plastic, rope and fishing line.
We are sure the two Southern Right friends appreciated the efforts.
On Sunday they embarked on a 6 Km Kayak trip up the Genoa River where they were challenged with the removal of Hay Silage plastic wrap tangled in the vegetation along the bank. This proved a delicate operation which required both balance and agility - but they managed to remove 4 Kg of plastic wrap without getting wet or loosing an eye - Great effort!
Two bags of debris is probably their smallest ever haul ... which in some ways is good as its reassuring to know there are still some relatively litter free spots out there !
Great work to the Parker Sea Shepherd family in Mallacoota who keep busy with their beach cleans and market stalls.

Who keep a set of utensil in your bag or with you all the time (ex. I keep them on my desk at work) to avoid using plastic utensils? I do and keep an extra one just in case someone might need it. Some people look at me cause they think I'm an extremist, that it's just a plastic utensil and it doesn't matter, that im funny or maybe stupid. But you know what I do it cause I care and loce my mother earth. This fork could be mine, and I bet tons of the ones I used before are still out there on the landfills or inside of a whale or inside the nose of a turtle. I will post my bag with my utelsils.
FYI: almost all those plastic utensils are non RECYCLABLE. 🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯
Quién de ustedes trae consigo sus propios cubiertos para evitar usar de plástico? O guardo unos en su escritorio en el trabajo? Yo lo hago y traigo hasta 2 para compartir si es necesario. Si la gente me ve y duran esta sobreactuada, exagerada es un tenedor que más da, por favor bajale. Creerán que soy tonta, pero saben que no me importa porque el amor hacia mi madre tierra es más y creo que 30 tantos años le hice daño sin saberlo, y ahora que sé que un simple tenedor estará por cientos de años en esta tierra ya ni quiero dejar más de los que use, y les puedo asegurar siguen por ahí en algún lado, sino es que ya se lo comió una ballena o esta en la nariz de una tortuga.
Después les compartiré mis cubiertos.
Por cierto la gran mayoría de estos cubiertos de plástico no son reciclables y sólo los usamos por máximo 30 minutos y creo que eso es mucho.

Beachgoers were shocked when they saw this dead whale washed up on the shores in the Philippines. But actually, it’s an art installation by a group of artists who created this “rotting” whale filled with plastic. Their aim is to raise awareness of our immense plastic pollution problem. In the first quarter of 2016, more than 30 dead sperm whales were found washed up on the shores of Europe and other parts of the world with large amounts of plastic waste in their stomachs.
Plastic destroys our oceans and our marine life. Say NO to plastic.
مردم در ساحل فیلیپین از دیدن جسم بی جان نهنگ شکه شده بودند.
ولی در واقع این یک اثر هنری(ماکت) از یک نهنگ که توسط گروهی از هنرمندان طرفدار محیط زیست که دهان و معده آن از کیسه های پلاستیکی پر شده است.
هدف آنها افزایش آگاهی در رابطه با مشکل بزرگ امروزه اقیانوس ها به ضایعات پلاستیکی هست
در سه ماه اول سال 2016 بیش از 30 لاشه نهنگ مرده در حالی که معده آنها حاوی پلاستیک بود در سواحل نقاط مختلف دنیا پیدا شده است.
پلاستیک ها اقیانوس ها و حیات دریایی را نابود می کنند
پس #همه_با_هم، #نه_به_کیسه_پلاستیکی

Love this image from the @zerowastenerd! 😊💚💙 If you want to start reducing your trash, pick 1 or 2 items that you can easily work on. Perhaps refuse straws? Once it becomes a habit, pick another one, like bringing a reusable water bottle which you can refill so that you can refuse plastic, styro and paper cups in the workplace or restaurants. And just keep going. This plastic pollution awareness just needs to get into your system. Pretty soon you'll be refusing plastic left and right. 😉🌏 #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #plasticpollutes #trashisfortossers #letsgogreenforlife #zerowaste #zerowastePH #zerobasura #zerodechet #lixozero #cintalingkungan #philippines #pilipinas #filipino #pinoy #pinay #itsmorefuninthephilippines #wheninmanila #savetheearth #savetheocean #ocean #greenliving #sustainableliving #ecofriendly #plastic #pollution #restaurant #travel #food #goingzerowaste

Took the eldest to the @hackneyempire yesterday (to see mister maker if you're wondering!). We were in a rush and it's all a bit old mother Hubbard at our place at the moment so I forgot the snacks and bought him an apple juice; still not quick enough to say no straw so a plastic straw in a plastic cup we got - @hackneyempire can you not use paper straws or get rid of them altogether? Plus how about reusable plastic cups? (Or even glasses?!!). To make up for the #zerowastefail The evening came with a #zerowastewin - I was super impressed with the @claptonhartpub - my drink came without the straw, hurrah! Looking at the bar I noticed there weren't any of the ubiquitous black straw boxed and I said how pleased I was to the lady serving me, she said it's a management order and if people want a straw they give them paper ones!! Not that I need an excuse to be back but this will defo factor in my decision for which pub to go to! Super excited that the message that #strawssuck is getting out there - here's to a straw free Hackney (and the world!) 💚🌎

Gorgeous! Thanks 💚🌏🌿#Repost @b_alternative ・・・

What is Compost?
A mixture of decayed or decaying organic matter used to fertilize soil. Compost is usually made by gathering plant material, such as leaves, grass clippings, and vegetable peels, into a pile or bin and letting it decompose as a result of the action of aerobic bacteria, fungi, and other organisms
تشکیل کمپوست فرایندی بیولوژیکی است که طی آن میکروارگانیسم های هوازی گرمادوست، بخش اعظم مواد آلی(مواد غذایی،میوه و...) را به آب، CO2 و کود هوموس تبدیل می نمایند. سوزاندن بقایای گیاهی(کاه و کلش گندم و...) علاوه بر آلودگی محیط زیست و نابودی منابع، موجب نابودی میکروارگانیسم ها، هوموس، شوری، فرسایش و در نهایت از دست رفتن توان تولید خاک میگردد
با افزایش جمعیت و همچنین پیشرفتهای اقتصادی و صنعتی روز به روز بر میزان مواد زائد تولیدی و بویژه زباله های شهری(MSW) افزوده می شود. از این رو در سالهای اخیر تولید کمپوست از زباله های شهری در ایران از جایگاه ویژه ای برخوردار شده است ، چرا که در بر گیرنده ی منافعی از قبیل کاهش آلودگی های ناشی از دفن ،کاهش حجم زباله و تولید کود مناسب برای خاک می باشد .

💕✨There are many good alternatives to plastic garbage bags. Many people say no to plastic bags when they go shopping. 🙅(Which is great! 👍🏻💪🏻👏🏻) But don't forget to also replace the plastic bags you use at home. Our kids deserve a better future. ✨💕#makeachange #greenliving #noplasticbags #noplasticgarbagebags #makeachangetoday #inspiration #forabetterfuture #ecomama #ecofamily #loveyourbody #loveourplanet #youcandoit #plasticpollutes #noplasticsbags #environmentalawareness #nontoxic #sustainabledevelopmentgoals #sustainable #sustainableliving #Summer2017 #July #Sweden #biobag

Purchased sticky rice grain this morning for my next DIY chocolate rice porridge. The seller was not so happy with my bento bag. He must have forgotten that customers are always right. 😌
