The Starfish – or Sea Star – may be one of the most beautiful creatures in the ocean.

They’re fascinating beings to only be a little larger than a tea cup. Let’s check out some facts about the starfish you may not know. 1. They have no brain and no blood Starfish use filtered sea water to pump nutrients through their nervous system. 2. They can be really heavy.At least for something of their small size, sea stars can weigh up to 11 pounds. 3. They have a lot of birthdays!The average lifespan of a sea star is 35 years. 4.There are around 2,000 species of sea star.They live in cold and warm climates all over the world. 5.They usually have five arms.There is a group of less common species that have more than five! 6. They eat inside out.When they capture prey, they have tiny suction cups to grab ahold of their food. Then their stomach exits their mouth to digest the food, and reenters the body when they’re done eating. 7.They can regenerate. But its takes a while. It can take up to a year for a lost limb to grow back. #OceanPollution #PlasticPollutes #Please #BoycottPlastic #BoycottFishing #OceanDebris #EmptyOceansBy2050

This loss of life signifies the impact increased levels of plastic pollution in our oceans are having on marine life. This is not ok. Pick it up. Bin it. #take3forthesea

I may not be able to have the Prosecco our wonderful little staycation has to offer - but I WILL most certainly be helping myself to the fresh scones they've kindly left for us!! #scones #scone #prosecco #yumyumyum #cornwall #pregnant

While it’s a nice thought, plastic never goes “away.” This material can take a thousand years to break down – at which point it will only break into smaller and smaller pieces. And yet we produce 300 million tons of this stuff every year and around 8.8 million tons enter our oceans. Unfortunately, once in the oceans, it poses a serious threat to marine life – and an estimated 700 marine species are in danger of extinction as a result. The good news is there are a few easy things we can do on the daily to fix this problem.

Did you know that over the last decade we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century? Or that our oceans now contain billions of pounds of plastic? We ALL can do something to help. Tap the link in our bio to read 20 Ways to Stand Up and Stop Plastic Pollution Today.

We recently watched the Jack Johnson documentary about plastic in the ocean. Everyone in the film was shocked by how plastic has invested our oceans. We're not, we see it everyday, large easy to pick up pieces to tiny bits. In the middle that's a bottle cap in the middle of the photo washed up on shore by the St. Croix River. #stcroixriver #minnesota #wisconsin #plasticpurge #smogofthesea #plasticpollutes

Que lindo el mercado #LaBoqueria , muchas cosas ricas para comer y productos para comprar, pero que increíble la cantidad de productos envasados y frutas llenas de plástico 😱 es importante que seamos consumidores conscientes, nosotros decidimos qué y cómo comprar, el mejor empaque de una fruta es su cáscara natural 🍌🍓🥝.

Very beautiful #LaBoqueria , market, a lot of good things to eat and products to buy, but how amazing the quantity of packed products and fruits full of plastic 😱 it is important to be conscious consumers, we decide what and how to buy, the best packaging of a fruit is its natural peel 🍌🍓🥝.

WATCH THIS FILM! 🐙
.
We had a whale of a time on our first night in Falmouth watching #aplasticocean and cannot recommend it enough! 🐳
.
It's honest, thought-provoking, and puts into perspective exactly why we're doing what we're doing.
.
Aside from benefitting the world's biggest ecosystem-THE OCEAN! The film looked into the health implications our decades of love for plastic has had.
.
The staggering thought that we all have ingested plastic and the delicious toxins that come with it is sickening. Seeping into our diet under plain sight: our water in plastic bottles, our food in takeaway packaging. Just because it's been the norm for years does not make it right.
.
Knowing what we do now, there is no reason for this plastic facade to continue! It's time for company's to take more ownership of their plastic production, and see it gets recycled properly. As soon as a price tag is put on this waste, and the bill delivered to those responsible, change will happen. 💸
.
We the consumer sometimes forget how much power we have in choosing how to spend our money and how important our day-to-day choices are.
.
“Think Reusable – Not Disposable” by pledging to refuse single-use plastics. http://www.plasticoceans.org/take-action/

A report published on Monday by @ews_wwf UAE Climate Change Risks and Resilience, suggests that by 2050 there could be an increase of up to 2°C during summer months and 10 per cent in humidity.

Higher temperatures and greater humidity are expected to reduce the productivity of outdoor workers and increase the risk to residents’ health, causing losses to the economy of up to Dh7.35 billion annually.

What steps are you willing to take to reduce the negative impact we have on the environment?

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish 😰 Make a conscious effort to use sustainable products and you can be part of the solution, not the problem ✊🏼 #mondaymotivation #savethefishes #plasticpollutes 📸: @oncobabygoods

Having a serious talk here with a couple of local government officials of Panglao. 😊
Today, I'm going to meet them again to coordinate with their office for the upcoming Earth Day Clean Up (they promised to provide manpower). And it is also the best time to propose them to make and pass a bill to encourage restaurants and bars in Panglao to stop giving out plastic straws unless requested (or just ban them hehe). Wish me luck. 😊
------------------------
We use more than 300 million plastic straws each day. Straws are too small to be easily recycled. So they become trash, often in the ocean. In fact, plastic straws are one of the top polluters on our beaches and can be harmful to animals.
But the thing to remember about plastic straws is, you can refuse them. Pledge to go plastic free, and when you order a drink say, “Without a straw, please!" Or, simply bring your own reusable straw. @plasticfree_bohol #bohol #moreoceanlessplastic #stopsucking #plasticfreeforthesea #protectwhatyoulove

Such a beautiful place, why people don't understand there are trash cans, where they can disposal their trash, just in that area, next to a bench I picked up 20 cigarette butts, yes twenty!! You know that only 1 of them pollutes gallons, liters of water, poison innocent animals, and for sure I bet some of your seafood for those who eats them, they had a cigarette or drink water with chemicals coming from them. Just saying if you know any smokers, please ask them politely to discard the filters properly. Thank you!
Please read the article on my profile. Thanks!

Lleve a Lucas a este lugar para disfrutar la naturaleza, lejos de gente y de basura para no molestarlo en recoger basura o fotos, tristemente no fue así, aún lejos de la multitud encontramos en este bello lugar 20 colillas de cigarros en sólo ahí en esa banca. Que los fumadores no saben que solo 1 colilla contamina unos cuantos litros de agua (no 2 ni 4 lts, muchos más ) y que inocentes animales se los comen y toman esa agua, por cierto a los que comen mariscos cuidado, ciudado, porque esos pescados de seguro se echaron unos tragos de ese veneno. Aquí les pido de la ma era mas atenta que les pidan a sus conocidos que fuman, que por favor tiren de manera responsable sus colillas. Gracias
Por favor lean el artículo en mi perfil, gracias.
