Balloons Blow!
On Sunday a whale watching company off the coast of the UK spotted a bird entangled in a bunch of promotional balloons from a Suzuki dealership.

They reported that - "This young puffin, only weeks old, was trapped by the nylon string around its neck and as it struggled to free itself a growing number of Fulmars were circling, ready to attack and eat it alive once it weakened. If this had happened several of the fulmars would have become entangled and others would have eaten plastic and so an ever increasing circle of destruction begins." After rescuing the exhausted young Puffin they contacted Suzuki regarding the issue and received the following reply "Hi Jill, we sincerely apologise for this and after speaking with our Marketing Team we have decided to no longer use balloons in our promotional packs which we send out to our dealerships." This is a great result! It's a perfect example of how important it is that we all continue to raise awareness. There are far more effective ways to celebrate and/or promote.
Please share this and help us raise awareness not only of this issue but about what good can happen when we all work together.

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

Only 9%?? Yes. 😳 | @NatGeo: “A Whopping 91% of Plastic Isn't Recycled.
Mass production of plastics, which began just 6 decades ago, has accelerated so rapidly that it has created 8.3 billion metric tons—most of it in disposable products that end up as trash. If that seems like an incomprehensible quantity, it is. Even the scientists who set out to conduct the world’s 1st tally of how much plastic has been produced, discarded, burned or put in landfills, were horrified by the sheer size of the numbers. “This kind of increase would ‘break’ any system that was not prepared for it, and this is why we have seen leakage from global waste systems into the oceans." Plastic takes more than 400 years to degrade, so most of it still exists in some form. Only 12% has been incinerated.
Of the 8.3 B metric tons that has been produced, 6.3 B metric tons has become plastic waste. Of that, only 9% has been recycled. The vast majority is accumulating in landfills or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter. Meaning: at some point, much of it ends up in the oceans, the final sink.
If present trends continue, by 2050, there will be 12 B metric tons of plastic in landfills. That amount is 35,000 times as heavy as the Empire State Building.
The study estimated that 8 M metric tons of plastic ends up in the oceans every year. That is the equivalent to 5 grocery bags of plastic trash for every foot of coastline around the globe. “We weren’t aware of the implications for plastic ending up in our environment until it was already there. Now we have a situation where we have to come from behind to catch up.” Gaining control of plastic waste is now such a large task that it calls for a comprehensive, global approach that involves rethinking plastic chemistry, product design, recycling strategies, and consumer use. “We as a society need to consider whether it’s worth trading off some convenience for a clean, healthy environment. For some products that are very problematic in the environment, maybe we think about using different materials. Or phasing them out.” -@NatGeo

f you think that all pollution is irreversible, look at this picture of the Sunter River in …. Change is possible, even on a large scale! #jakarta

sem canudinhos, por favor!
os canudos que usamos demoram mais de mil anos para se decompor, 500 milhões de canudinhos são usados por dia. #refuseplasticstraws #plasticpollutes

2nd time @walgreens this week, so disappointed for the waste of plastic bags, is there anyway you can ask your customers if they need a bag? 2nd bag I'm taking home to reuse or recycle it !
Repeat with me: "i don't need a bag, thank you!😊!" 🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯🚯
2a vez en esta semana que vengo a #walgreens y me encuentro una bolsa de plástico!! Que les cuesta preguntar a sus clientes si realmente necesitan una bolsa?? Al menos esta bolsa la usaré o reciclare.

Coming Up at Oxo...
FUTURE DUST: Maria Arceo is the artist behind the large-scale artwork that will take residence in the courtyard from 3-6 September. The installation takes the form of a footprint made up of plastic debris from the river Thames with the aim of visualising the sheer scale of plastic litter that ends up in the river.
Future dust is a @thamesplastic project and part of @totallythames - click through to their profile for more info.

The Guardian asked a range of packaging experts about what companies need to be doing to reduce plastic waste. They said retailers and manufacturers can take immediate action to reduce this source of marine litter by replacing plastic stems with fully biodegradable alternatives like rolled paper. #strawlessoceans #plasticpollutes #recyclingrocks
