Our #RiseAbovePlastics Committee hard at work!

Did you hear? Hawai’i Island became the second county in Hawaii to agree to phase out polystyrene foam to-go containers. Our State's evolving movement to eliminate single-use plastics is gaining momentum and represents strong statements on creating a more sustainable Hawaii. Mahalo to all these coalition partners who have worked for a decade to educate and advocate for this lifestyle change! #riseaboveplastics #oceanfriendlyhi #foamfreehawaii #plasticfreehawaii @plasticpollutes

it's called social responsibility. you don't need to do it all, but you need to do your part. educate yourself, look at what's happening to our oceans for the waste we produce and do your part to fix it. #worldoceansday #riseaboveplastics #beachcleanup

Is there plastic like Polyethylene Terephthalate #PET or Polyethylene #PE in your lipstick? Check it before you kiss #NoPlasticsInCosmetics #BeattheMicrobead #RiseAbovePlastics

Do not ever doubt your ability to participate. Students from Kaiser High's @wipeoutcrew may not be able to vote, but they channeled their frustration in how much plastics and foam debris they find in their beach cleanups into steps towards policy change - this group showed up and eloquently testified on Senate Bill 1109 to prohibit polystyrene foam containers. They were part of 400 written testimonies and 50 + live testimonies that helped this bill through its first hearing. We need to maintain, double, triple this participation in more challenging hearings to come in the next 2-3 months. Be inspired by this generation, get involved, find your cause. #CivicsISTrending #longlivefreshstarts #protectwhatyoulove #riseaboveplastics

Bulk food shopping is a fantastic way to reduce your use of unnecessary single use plastics. Businesses like @scoopwholefoods & @thesourcebulkfoods are opening up in many locations & other independent stores & co-ops also exist. What are the ones in your area? If you don't have access to a bulk supply store you can always shop at online sites like @santosorganics who will deliver plastic free goodies to your door!
Here's to the success of progressive businesses who choose to #breakfreefromplastic !

Happy to see our host @edstown & his Town Hospitality Group honored with the John Kelly Award for Ocean Friendly Company of the Year from @surfrideroahu last night. It is the highest award from Surfrider and recognizes Town’s work in doing the right thing and inspiring others in eliminating single-use plastics and styrofoam in its business practices. #riseaboveplastics

Heading to @surfrideroahu's celebration for their 100th certification of @oceanfriendlyrestaurantshi here in Hawaii! Our waters are so important to us & we are thankful to be joined by others who are devoted to caring and loving our island home. // 🌎 #riseaboveplastics #oceanfriendlyhi

The Power Lies in the Demand of the Consumers 💡 ⠀
Actress and Director Bonnie Wright, best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter, joined the fight against #plasticpollution.⠀
“For years, we’ve been told that if we simply recycle away our plastic bottles, containers, and other garbage, we’re doing our part to save the planet, so I was recently shocked to discover that over 90 percent of plastics are not recycled at all.⠀
We need to shift the fashions of consumerism and demand transparency from companies that manipulate us to think they’re doing “good” by using 50% more recycled plastic in their bottles. That will never be enough. It’s time to reject this story of convenience that corporations sell us.”⠀
We, at Sustainable Breakthroughs, couldn’t agree more. Here is to making each choice count, each dollar our vote, and responsibly nurturing our planet Earth. 🌎 #zerowaste #greenpeace #iamnotplastic #stopsucking #plasticfree

Yes, a photo of a beautiful beachcombed seashell would've been more glamorous (don't get me wrong my collection is large).....but this is reality. The big winter swells bring lots of debris onto the beach. Often these small pieces of plastic are swept up high where the birds like to forage😕 I truly feel that it is my kuleana to pick these pieces up, and #keepourbeachesclean
Beaches are my happy place-no matter what state or country & I would love it if they can remain clean for all to enjoy✨
It really doesn't take that much time! My husband helped a bit...but we were the only people doing this & getting quite the stares (some guy asked me what I was looking for🤣) What will it take to get more people on board? Im not sure but I hope posts like this inspire people a bit to not ignore what doesn't belong & just pick it up!!!!

Do you sometimes feel that you consume too much plastic- like using disposable water bottles, straws or plastic bags? Here are 6 great tips to help you live a plastic-free lifestyle.

Beautiful December day in NE Florida 🌞Join us for the last chapter meeting of 2017, tonight at 6 @surferthebarjax. We will be wrapping up the year and planning for 2018! If you have been interested in getting more involved we will be also having our chapter elections- this is the perfect time to explore leadership roles within the chapter! We can't wait to see everyone tonight!! #firstcoastsurfrider #surferthebar #bethechange #riseaboveplastics #strawssuck #voidlive

We love asking people what material they think Brad makes these brush handles out of! Any guesses? I'll post the answer in a few hours 😉 A few hints: they're 100% post-consumer recycled, they're extremely durable and we donate $10 from each brush sold to @surfridervi ! If you're dying to know right now, check out the shaving brushes section of our website 👍 UPDATE: Ok, the big reveal! These brushes are all made from compressed polystyrene (Styrofoam). The air is removed, leaving Brad with a rock hard, durable (unfortunately TOO durable) material to work with. The origin of this material is Styrofoam cups, egg cartons, packing materials etc. Brad's been working on this project and making these brushes for many years and he's pumped to be able to use this waste material for something shavers can use forever. Please say no to products packaged in Styrofoam - we find a disturbing amount of this garbage on the beach. Better yet, do a beach/sidewalk/field/park cleanup 👍🌲 #woodturner #customshavingbrush #riseaboveplastics #zerowaste #refusereducereuserecycle #craftsperson #madeinyyj #yyjmade #owneroperated #wetshaving #loveyourskin #skincare #exfoliate #zerowastebathroom #zerowasteliving #saynotoplastic #protectwhatyoulove #beachcleanup #oceanconservation #pnw #westcoast #reclaimed #shavingbrush #handcrafted

Holland Point Park off of Dallas Road here in Victoria, BC is one of the most popular scenic points for taking in spectacular sunsets, watching seals, otters, hummingbirds and boats of all description. Unfortunately this bench attracts more than it's share of careless smokers 😭 I filled this container, found beside this bench, with 97 butts, a plastic spoon, a marker and bits of candy wrappers...a moderate find this time. Please dispose of your butts responsibly. In the summer the grass is very, very dry. The risk of fire is very high. And still people treat it like it's an ash tray. People come here to sit with nature, not your garbage. #hollandpointpark #scenicviewvictoriabc #dallasroad #notanashtray #myrantfortheday #holdontoyourbutts #surfridervancouverisland #litter #3piecesoflitteraday #riseaboveplastics #cigarettes #cigarettesandnaturedontmix #cigarettesandnatureadangerouscombo #natureisnotagarbagedump #packitinpackitout

We wanted to announce that WE WILL NOT be hosting a December Chapter Meeting on the 12th. We're sorry we won't see all your wonderful faces, but we hope you enjoy all your holiday parties and travels.
•••••••••••••••••••••••
Don't fret too much, because we will be hosting a fun volunteer appreciation party in January 🎉! More details about that coming soon.

Our site launched on 11/27. After a 10 day analysis, cutting costs and tweaking shipping methods, we have accumulated roughly $200 to give back to continuing beach and ocean conservation efforts(bags, gloves, and etc. for beach sweeps). Nothing crazy but it's a start. With no payouts and minimal costs, our next milestone of $500 should be a breeze. Thank you to everyone who kickstarted the movement. With your help we are preserving the ocean one bottle at a time. Let's keep it going!!

Cheers to the #greenteam @pesparrots for arranging free water via the @quenchbuggy to all the families + kids attending Carnival day last weekend. This was a monumental shift to eliminate single-use plastic water bottles and it kept everyone hydrated. Additionally, @pesparrots was also the FIRST elementary school in FL to have a water refill station at an public event. Cheers to that! @pinecrestfl @pinecrestgardenclub @pinecrest_gardens @pinecrestmagazine @surfridermiami @riseaboveplastics @surfrider #riseaboveplastics #plasticfree #pinecrestfl #Pinecresting #pinecrestelementaryschool

Do you #PickUpThree every time you go to the beach? Here are three major contributors to plastic pollution, all collected on a one-block beach walk. #RefuseReduceReuseRecycle #FirstStepIsRefuse #RiseAbovePlastics (straw is most likely from Wawa, called out the other two for their obvious labels)

Every piece of #plastic ever made still exists somewhere today, breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces. Plastics will never go away. How do we SHIFT or REDISTRIBUTE the responsibility of plastics after #consumption from the consumers to the producers?? It’s time we hold companies and businesses accountable for the products they are putting out in order for us all to work towards a more #sustainable, #plasticfree future.

@Regranned from @wolfandwinginteriordesign - My good friend messaged me this sad shot yesterday from her daily beach walk in Lido....SO MANY PLASTIC BAGS!! The bag ordinance in my town has been in effect for 7+ months and people still bitch about bringing their own bags or threaten to shop over the bridge so they can continue to be able to get their "free" plastic bags like it's some kind of right to trash our planet in the name of convenience. Luckily there are also so many kind people like Stacy willing to pick up as much of this plastic pollution as possible, but there's no way we can get it all. Our oceans are a mess, people. Please #bringyourownbag and you will personally subtract 1000's of plastic bags from the waste stream and never give them a chance to fly or float into our oceans. #riseaboveplastics #protectwhatyoulove #banthebag #plasticpollution #ecoactivism #bethechange #refuse #reduce #reuse #byobaglb #beachcleanup #trashfreeseas #longlivecleanwater #longlivetheocean #surfrider #surfridercentralli #lido #lidobeach #longisland #ny - #regrann

Last year, approximately 10.000 species were made extinct, the climate became even warmer than anticipated and 12.000.000 tons of plastic went into the oceans. We should act now, starting this christmas. #dropsanta Photo @nasa/ unknown.

Did you know that in one day America uses enough plastic straws to fill 125 school buses? After disposal these straws pile up in landfills or even get swept into the ocean, where they decompose and release toxic chemicals. Next time you're reaching for a single use straw, think before you sip: Is 10 minutes of use worth the damage to the environment? #riseaboveplastics #strawssuck

Rain, hail or shine... she's a beaut! Hands up if you love the big blue 🙋🏽 @surfrider_southcoast #protectwhatyoulove #riseaboveplastics #saynotoplastic
