Nearly 35,000 #signatures on this petition ๐Ÿ˜ณ We were pleased to have a #paperstraw with the drink from our local @mcdonaldsuk at the weekend - to see this petition is very worrying. Whether it started off as a joke or not, the fact that almost 35,000 people have signed it to date shows a real lack of respect for the #environment and the damage #straws do. The more places that get rid of #plasticstraws the better, so let's hope all #fastfood outlets follow down the paperstraw route - even if it means putting in a bit extra effort when drinking a thick #milkshake ! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #ecofriendlyliving #paperstraw #recycle #ecofriendly #mcdonalds #mcdonaldsstraws #lessplasticwaste #lessplastic #lessplasticisfantastic #sustainable #loveearth #loveourplanet #lovethisplanet #preservearthuk #sustainableliving #makeachange

Let me introduce you the first #project Iโ€™m honored to #boost : #BioStraw4Planet by @travel4thoughts ! โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข #Society has made us dependent on items produced to last #forever , but designed to be disposable. #plasticstraws , we only use for few seconds but #never degrade, are the most tangible symbol of our #throwawayculture . BioStraw4Planet aims to replace #plastic straws in the Island of Rodrigues (#mauritius ) with #biodegradable #bamboostraws . โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข This fantastic project is supported by #Polarquest (@scienceadventurers ) as one of its #solutions to #plasticpollution . #Straws are the perfect example of a disposable #singleuseplastic object which enter our #oceans , becoming #microplastics consumed by #animals big and small. During its #expedition , Polarquest found plastic pieces visible to the naked eye in ocean waters as far as the edge of the #NorthPole ice-shelf, over 82 degrees Latitude North! โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข While countries #aroundtheworld are now beginning to #takeaction to limit plastic use, the oceans cannot wait for top-bottom solutions to fix this problem. The #timetoact is #NOW ! โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข Learn more about and support the project with a #donation on: www.globalgiving.org/microprojects/biostraw4planet/ โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข #plasticfree #plasticfreeoceans #ngo

Weird snippet of information time! Plastic straws aren't THAT bad. I know, i know, how dare i, but hear me out. They make less than one precent of the plastic trash we make (biggest ones are clothes and fishing nets, i think) and they're LIFE SAVING for people with disabilities who have a hard time with motor skills and sitting up, random seizures and etc. Most people who need these straws to drink/eat would be allergic to metal and silicone, and glass isn't a good substitute because they really depend on the bendy part (laying down, etc) of the straws. So instead of trying to ban straws which make not a lot of trash and save lives, let's focus on bigger things for now, until we can find a solution for the people who need these straws! ื–ืžืŸ ืœืงื˜ืข ืžื•ื–ืจ ืฉืœ ืžื™ื“ืข! ืงืฉื™ื•ืช ืคืœืกื˜ื™ืง ื”ืŸ ืœื ื›ืœ ื›ืš ืจืขื•ืช. ืื ื™ ื™ื•ื“ืขืช, ืื ื™ ื™ื•ื“ืขืช, ืื™ืš ืื ื™ ืžืขื™ื–ื”, ืื‘ืœ ืชืฉืžืขื• ืื•ืชื™. ื”ื ืคื—ื•ืช ืžืื—ื•ื– ืื—ื“ ืฉืœ ื–ื‘ืœ ื”ืคืœืกื˜ื™ืง ืฉืื ื—ื ื• ืขื•ืฉื™ื (ื”ื’ื“ื•ืœื™ื ื”ื ื‘ื’ื“ื™ื ื•ืจืฉืชื•ืช ื“ื™ื’, ืื ื™ ื—ื•ืฉื‘ืช) ื•ื”ื ืžืฆื™ืœื™ ื—ื™ื™ื ืœืื ืฉื™ื ืขื ืžื•ื’ื‘ืœื•ื™ื•ืช ืฉื™ืฉ ืœื”ื ืงื•ืฉื™ ืขื ืžื™ื•ืžื ื•ื™ื•ืช ืžื•ื˜ื•ืจื™ื•ืช ื•ื™ืฉื™ื‘ื”, ื”ืชืงืคื™ื ืืงืจืื™ื™ื ื•ื›ื•'... ืจื•ื‘ ื”ืื ืฉื™ื ื”ื–ืงื•ืงื™ื ืœืงืฉื™ื•ืช ื”ืืœื” ื›ื“ื™ ืœืฉืชื•ืช / ืœืื›ื•ืœ ื™ื”ื™ื• ืืœืจื’ื™ื™ื ืœืžืชื›ืช ื•ืœืกื™ืœื™ืงื•ืŸ, ื•ื”ื–ื›ื•ื›ื™ืช ื”ื™ื ืœื ืชื—ืœื™ืฃ ื˜ื•ื‘ ืžืฉื•ื ืฉื”ื ื‘ืืžืช ืชืœื•ื™ื™ื ื‘ื—ืœืง ื”ืžืชื›ื•ืคืฃ (ืื ืฉื™ื ืฉืชืงื•ืขื™ื ื‘ืžืฆื‘ ืฉื›ื™ื‘ื” ื•ื›ื• ') ืฉืœ ื”ืงืฉื™ื•ืช. ืื– ื‘ืžืงื•ื ืœื ืกื•ืช ืœืืกื•ืจ ืงืฉื™ื•ืช ืฉืœื ืขื•ืฉื•ืช ื”ืจื‘ื” ื–ื‘ืœ ื•ืžืฆื™ืœื•ืช ื—ื™ื™ื, ื‘ื•ืื• ื ืชืžืงื“ ื‘ื“ื‘ืจื™ื ื’ื“ื•ืœื™ื ื™ื•ืชืจ, ืขื“ ืฉื ื•ื›ืœ ืœืžืฆื•ื ืคืชืจื•ืŸ ืขื‘ื•ืจ ื”ืื ืฉื™ื ื”ื–ืงื•ืงื™ื ืœืงืฉื™ื•ืช!

I went for a little walk when it was getting dark but it got really dark real soon and I had to go back. about 750m each way. . Took a slug home by accident. Sorry buddy ๐ŸŒ Edit: itโ€™s a snail not a slug apparently ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ ___________________________________________ #pickinguprubbish #pickitup #litter #litterpicking #pickupyourtrash #pickuptrash #pickuplitter #nightpicking #plasticstraws #plasticpollution #plasticlid #calippo #plasticcutlery #bethechange #cleaningupthestreets #onebagatatime
Mourning for the modern sea ~ while studying the environment is super rewarding and there are glimpses of hope,, tbh for the most part a bit of grieving is required to process all thatโ€™s going on... ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’”๐ŸŒฑ
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat.

Fantastic lunch at Banana Tree at the weekend. Impressed that they now have a separate veggie/vegan menu, it makes dining out much easier! However, I was disappointed that my drink came with a plastic straw, @bananatreeuk this is not cool! Please ditch single use plastics now! #bananatree #plasticstraws #plasticstrawssuck #saynotosingleuse #saynotosingleuseplastics #surfersagainstsewage #twominutebeachclean #skyoceanrescue #thereisnoplanetb #veganfortheenvironment #vegan #vegansofig #veganmeal #veganfood #indochino
There is a monster in our oceans, lurking in the deep and threatening all us. That monster is single-use plastic. โฃ โฃ Right now an estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic โ€“ everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads โ€“ end up in our oceans EVERY SINGLE YEAR ๐Ÿ˜ฆโฃ โฃ Travelling on ocean currents this plastic is now turning up in every corner of our planet โ€“ from Cornish beaches, to uninhabited Pacific islands. โฃ โฃ As individuals, we have the power to make a difference. If everyone cut down on their plastic consumption, huge amounts would be saved from finding its way into our landfills & oceans. โฃ โฃ Something to think twice about next time you use a plastic straw, bag, cutlery or water bottle ๐Ÿค”โฃ โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ“ท: @lessplasticuk โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ โฃ #sustainableliving #byebyeplastic #reuseablestraw #reusereducerecycle #ditchtheplastic #plasticstraws #zerowaste #conciousconsumer #plasticfreeoceans #plasticfreeliving #environmentalist #ecologรญa #singleuseplasticsucks #saveourseas #noplanetb #saveouroceans #plasticfreeseas #saveouroceans #noplanetb #planetnotplastics #upcycle #nomoreplastic #plastjepast #bamboostraw #consciousliving
Over 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year. How do we help this? Well, you can start small by putting soft plastics into special bins at super markets, you can use beeswax wraps instead of cling/plastic wrap, use your keep cup instead of a takeaway coffee cup and don't buy or accept single use plastics such at straws, plastic bags and plastic bottles. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ Photo: @oceanrefuge
Iโ€™ve been observing food-trucks for the past couple of months as part of my coursework at NYU. Food trucks are many things, and can be different things... trendy, convenient, tasty, necessary, standard or unique. Still, one thing I have not yet seen is eco-friendly. Who is talking about the waste from food trucks? What about all the single use plastic utensils, straws, bottles and plastic to-go bags? Is there a food truck that is composting? Would eco-friendly products cost too much for the vendor? Which customers would pay more for a reduced environmental footprint? How much more? Is anyone advocating for green food-trucks? #foodcartwaste #singleuseplastic #plasticbottles #plasticutensils #plasticstraws #streetmeat #garbage #highvolume #waste #sustainabilityfail #streetfoodnyu @fparasecoli
That's it. Today is the first day of the next 365. So, what'll it be? A #reusable 1) Keurig cup 2) #Zippo [or matches] to replace plastic throwaway lighters 3) #Tupperware to replace single-use Ziplocs 4) Finally settling down and committing to your old, loyal reusable water bottle 5) Planting flowers to promote necessary pollinator populations 6) Or a tree 7) #Vegan for a day to combat antibiotic resistance, #overfishing , and resource depletion 8) Nixing #plasticstraws from your life forever 9) Decreasing water and electricity usage 10) Other? What is YOUR 2019 #EarthDayResolution ? (Because for the near future to exist, we should really, absolutely, positively have one.) #thelaststraw #noplanetB #earthlings #wildlifewarriors @originalzippo @tupperwareusca
