Every piece of plastic ever created (unless it was incinerated) still exists. Take a moment to let that sink in - the 8 BILLION tonnes of plastic we have created all still exist on earth, whether that is in landfill, littering the countryside or worst of all polluting our oceans. Do your bit by avoiding that small unnecessary piece of plastic, as it all adds up and can have a huge impact.

Sometimes climate change has an unequal burden. When a climate change caused disaster strikes, poor communities are more susceptible and take longer to recover. Climate change is human caused and thus will also hurt humans. Some people don't have the money to protect themselves from a changing climate. Drought can make agriculture useless and storms can wipe out places that can't be replaced.

Fiji will be the starting point for a historical global marathon of civic action that sweeps across the planet on September 15th. Millions of volunteers throughout 156 countries will act as one to carry out a #WorldCleanupDay, finishing in American Samoa. Waste is a global issue that has to be dealed with on a global scale. Visit worldcleanupday.org to learn more.

Climate victory! California’s governor has just signed SB100 into law that sets an ambitious target for the state to run on 100 percent renewables. A few weeks ago I discussed this proposed bill, and now it has become a reality.

It turns out cigarettes are not just bad for your health, but also the environment. They make up a large percent of waste on beaches, and can be accidentally eaten by wildlife or pollute water with chemicals. Cigarette butts are also responsible for devastating wildfires which affect humans and animals alike. Please dispose of them properly.

A whale shark has been found dead in the Philippines covered in plastic. The endangered species washed up in a port, dead from the polluted sea. This is a wake up call, and we need to clean the oceans before it's too late.

The ULTIMATE hypocrisy: Big Oil companies now want the US government to protect their coastal refineries from rising sea levels caused by global warming. This wall that some of the biggest players in the American petroleum business want built (in Texas) would be over 60 miles long and would be built entirely out of tax payer money. Big Oil companies are responsible for a huge proportion of the added CO2 in the atmosphere and now (as Texan officials are drafting plans for sea walls to protect Texan communities from future sea level rise) Big Oil are seeing this as an opportunity to foist the costs of fighting climate change (which they caused) to hard working taxpayers.

More than 300 sea turtles from an endangered species were found dead on a beach in southern Mexico, on August 28, trapped in a banned type of fishing net. The turtles were Olive Ridley turtles.
In order to ensure the safety of marine ecosystems and the ocean, the fishing industry must become more sustainable. This is just needless slaughter.

Today, the California Assembly passed Senate Bill 100 (SB 100), legislation that will transition the state’s energy grid to 100% clean energy by 2045. California’s commitment to clean energy comes as the Trump administration is dismantling protective standards for power plants and car emissions, unleashing climate and air pollution in communities across the country. This bill makes California the biggest economy to go 100% clean energy!

Every year, North American monarch butterflies journey 3,000 miles from Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains across the United States to Canada and back again. During this continental crossing, they pollinate and support healthy ecosystems.
But these butterflies are in trouble.
Loss of habitat and dangerous pesticides are threatening monarchs. Click the link in my bio to fight the EPA’s dangerous decision to allow the use of glyphosate and other toxic herbicides—which is bad for butterflies and people, alike.

What is the solution to the plastic crisis?
Recycling won't help much, as while it helps cut down on landfills we produce too much plastic to be recycled.
Bioplastics can still harm animals in the ocean and also take a lot of resources to make.
What we need to do is make less plastic. Stores need to use less plastic for bags and packaging, and companies need to stop making plastic items.
By using less plastic in your everyday life, bit by bit, you are helping cut down on the astonishing global use of plastic.

In 1912, an article appeared in a newspaper warning us that burning coal might produce future warming.
We've known about climate change for a long time. The greatest tragedy is how much time we've wasted. Let's not wait any longer.

About a week ago, an orca named J35 had a calf but died about 30 minutes after being born. Now almost a week later, the Orca can still be seeing balancing her deceased baby on her snout as she carries it with her through waters off the state of Washington.

Orca, which are the largest dolphin species and actually not a whale, are some of the most intelligent and beautiful animals on the the planet.
This shows that animals are compassionate, and have feelings. Which is why we need to protect them. They have the same motherly instincts that a human would, and have grief over a death like a human does.

A new study shows that the annual cost of damage from coastal flooding in Europe by 2100 will be a grand total of 1,000,000,000,000 dollars. That's a lot of zeros. As climate change causes more and more natural disasters and extreme weather events, it's easy to see that the climate crisis will also lead to a financial crisis.

New Zealand has announced it will ban plastic bags. The country will phase them out over the course of 12 months. New Zealanders use approximately 1 billion plastic bags every year, so this is a great initiative.

Today is #worldlionday 2018! Lion numbers are expected to drop by half in the next 20 years, and other big cats are also in danger. These animals play a crucial role in the ecosystem and we can't lose them to poaching, trophy hunting, and climate change.

What an amazing piece of art by @_nic.mac_ ! Our oceans are becoming more and more polluted each day, and that's why everyone needs to use less plastic and take simple initiatives like cutting out plastic straws and bags.
