Post aus Hawaii bekommt man nicht alle Tage... umso schöner, diesen Alohagruß heute im Briefkasten zu finden 😍Das erinnert mich nicht nur an eine wunderbare Zeit mit ganz besonderen Menschen, sondern auch an den Ort, mit dem alles begann... das erste Mal spürte ich hier das unbändige Verlangen, mich für diese wunderschöne Natur und gegen all den Plastikmüll einzusetzen. Dass hier die Idee zu meinen Clean ups zum ersten Mal zu keimen begann... wusste ich vor etwa einem Jahr selbst noch nicht. 🌈 . Hawaii hat mich verändert. Lava, Wellen, Wale, dampfende Vulkane, der Duft von Kona Kaffee, Ananaswein, Poke und der Alohavibe sind zu einem Teil von mir geworden, für den ich soooo dankbar bin. . Danke an @wildhawaii, die mich heute an all das erinnert haben und sich am anderen Ende der Welt für die Natur, die Tiere und unsere Umwelt einsetzen! 🌱🐟🌊Aloha 💙 . EN/ Thanks to @wildhawaii for this letter and for reminding me of a special place, where my „clean up journey“ began 🤙🏼 . . . #keephawaiiwild#hawaii#aloha#letter#mail#stickers#togetherwearestronger#letssavetheworld#stopplasticpollution#memories#alohamail#upcyclehawaii
Botanical Bliss is trying to reduce single-use plastic waste and you can help! Tell me, would you buy my face cream with NO Shrink wrap(#1), PARTIAL Shrink wrap (#2), or do you prefer FULL Shrink wrap (#3) if you are buying direct from me/at a market?( All products in retail stores must have full wrap to protect against tampering). I ask because I tried to reduce my packaging years ago and found people wanted it perfect, which it won't be without full wrap. So my final question is, are you willing to accept imperfect product packaging to protect the environment? Thanks for your feedback! Pls share! #reducewaste#stoppollution#3rs#stopplasticpollution#savetheworld#cleantheocean#naturalskincare#healingplants#healthyface
♻️CAMBIANDO EL MUNDO UN VASO A LA VEZ♻️ Uno de los principales problemas que representa el #plasticodeunsolouso es su acumulación en los océanos, cuya máxima expresión son las “Islas de Basura” (en inglés: "ocean garbage patches") que existen en distintos océanos y mares del planeta. Estas “islas” de basura están formadas en su mayoría por micropartículas de plástico que no son biodegradables, poniendo en riesgo el equilibrio del ecosistema marino. 👉✖👉Cada de una de esas partículas fue alguna vez un producto que estuvo en nuestras manos y que por un mal manejo terminó en los mares.👈✖👈 Por eso estamos orgullos de acompañar a @Corona_Argentina en su campaña #elplasticonopertenecealoceano, y celebramos este tipo de acciones porque estamos convencidos de que son clave para difundir el #consumoresponsable y lograr el #cambiocultural con el que soñamos. /// 📷: Qero 360cc & #coronasunset #qero #noaldescartable #tripleimpacto #singleuseplastic #ecovasos#impacto #stopplasticpollution #empresab#bcorp #empresasb #desplastificar#zerowaste #stopsingleuse#plasticodescartable#noexcuseforsingleuse #propósito#impacto #protectparadise

Half of all plastic in the ocean was used for less than 12 minutes, but might threaten marine life for centuries. Whenever possible, choose reusable alternatives instead of single use and recycle what you can. These kinds of decisions might seem small but they will make a big difference in the long run. #keepouroceansclean
Many people don't have a lot of time for composting or space- but if you want to provide nutrient-rich fertilizer for your herbs an flowers, there is micro-Composting! In this way, you can keep your plants hearty without spending money on fertilizers and soil amendments. You can create a micro-composter that can sit on a patio, back porch or side year. I loved doing this project as it was a way to show my kids how organics decompose into compost, on a really small scale. Here’s how I made it: 1-Cut the top off of a clean liter soda bottle and poke some air holes in it. 2- Add damp but not soaked soil at the bottom. 3- Add a handful of food scraps (veggies, coffee/tea, bread, egg shells, but no meat or dairy). 4- Repeat until the bottle is full, with the top layer soil. 5- Spray the soil and bottle with water so that the environment is damp. 6- Place in a sunny spot, spray when the soil goes dry, and shake occasionally. 7- Watch for six to eight weeks while your food scraps slowly decompose into compost. 8- Add your rich, compost soil to plants and flowers. 9- Rinse and repeat. My kids found it fascinating and both my plants and wallet are very happy! * Idea originally from John D. #composting#usingwhatyouhave
Our all natural bamboo charcoal water filters are now available across India. More than 1 million plastic bottles are discarded EVERY SINGLE MINUTE. Do your part and commit to reducing your reliance on single use plastics!
There is a consensus in many sustainable living circles that if we stop buying cheap unsustainable products, that companies will eventually stop making them. Consumer purchasing power can sway business, to be sure. After all, we're seeing an uptick in businesses offering cleaner, healthier and less wasteful products compared to years past. 🌱 However, I don't believe it all rests on the shoulders of #consciousconsumers. I believe that politics and capitalism are huge players (if not the masterminds) in this convenient consumerism game we play. ☄️ In order for our purchasing power to really make a difference, we need to see communities of all socioeconomic backgrounds have access to affordable education on sustainabilty and affordable sustainable products. Regardless of SES, we all need to have resources that will help us make environmentally safe decisions. 🌳 I believe that the change we wish to see, regarding products and current convenient consumerism habits, will require an unprecedented global shift in consciousness. It will require a shift so strong that our value for our collective home outweighs the enticings of our current capitalistic structure. ✊ Many of us are becoming more aware of how our purchasing decisions impact our future, specifically in regard to the health of our planet. Many of us are taking responsibility and learning that change starts HERE, with each of us. Many of us are igniting change, right now, on the soil we stand on. This gives me hope. 🌈 If we continue to educate ourselves, make wise decisions, share our knowledge, and inspire change at a grass roots level AND political level, then we all have hope for a better future. 🌏 What do you think will be required to ignite change regarding #consciousconsumerism ? #consciousconsumerism#sustainableliving#mysustainablejourney#gogreen#goingzerowaste#progressoverperfection#zerowasteinsp#protecttheplanet#sustainablelivinggoals#greenresolutions#reducereuserecycle

Can you imagine this? Do you understand what you said well? Do you think your words can not affect people even world? Whatever is that your word has power, you have power, your power can change everything, you can change the world. But they dont, animals dont have power, they are weak pretty weak. They are crying inside but never showed. You want people to understand you, but you dont undertand what is “people” People can fix their own problems and there are many ways to fix that. But animals can not, they need us. If you can say “no” to one straw, it means you save them and this entire world. Would you like to say “no” everytime? Of course this is difficult, i know that because sometimes i do. Now time to act, we do together. #2019nostraw we can do it. . 🙋🏻♂️: “no straw anymore” 🙅🏻♀️: “no straw anymore” . . . . . . @greensiri__ #greensiri#saynotoplaatics
We would lie if we were to say we totally banished plastic from our process. But we are going that way. As with daily life, we started with plastic bags. Our packaging is made of recycled paper or wood. We are collaborating with manufacturing plants who are sensitive to the matter in their process as well. As individuals we are reducing to almost zero, the use of plastic straws (done), cups, ustensiles and other components of our routine. . . . . . . . #stopplastic#redusereuserecycle#stopplasticpollution#protect our planet for the #nextgenerations#sustainable#sustainability#oceanplastic
“If plastic had been invented when the Pilgrims sailed from England to North America- and the Mayflower had been stocked with bottled water and plastic wrapped snacks - their plastic trash would likely still be around today, four centuries later.” 🤯💔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Plastic was designed to last forever. It was once considered a miracle material but now we are drowning in it. It’s polluting our oceans, littering our landscapes and killing millions of animals a year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s up to us to transition away from relying on single use plastics and change starts at the individual level. Pass on single use items like juice pouches, straws and throw away plastic baggies. Get yourself a few reusable products like a drink bottle, reusable straws & snack bags or a food container. Simple changes make a difference and will help you develop lasting sustainable habits 💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join the movement to reduce your plastic waste & let’s work together to restore the health of our beautiful oceans and protect our planet 🌎🌊✊🏽💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breakfreefromplastic#saveourseas#plasticocean#clearseacollective
Did you know living in a tiny house dramatically decreases carbon emissions and minimally impacts our environment? ♨️♻️ ———————————————— Living in under 500 sq.ft. can reduce CO2 emissions by 26,000 lbs/yr ⚠️ ———————————————— And 18% of green house gases come from residential homes🏡😷 ———————————————— Maybe tiny house isn’t the solution to global warming because it’s not a one size fits all model 😅 But for those willing & able we’ll be making it a little easier to breathe. 🌬 ———————————————— 📸 @gypsea_rebel
[Cerita Bumi] Hai, ini aku... Bumi. Ingin mendengar ceritaku? Aku tidak yakin kau akan suka, tapi coba dengarkan. Pernahkah kau melemparkan sampah kepada Ibumu? Pernahkah kau mengguduli rambutnya demi kepentinganmu? Pernahkah kau menusuk dan mengeluarkan isi perutnya hanya demi beberapa lembar uang semu? Pernahkah kau membunuh saudaramu dan mengulitinya di depan ibumu? Tidak pernah? Kau yakin? Kau memanggilku "Ibu Pertiwi", tapi tidak memperlakukanku selayaknya itu. Kau membuang sampah di seluruh tubuhku, di tanahku, di lautku, di gunung dan di sungai sungai kecilku. Kau menggunduli kepalaku, membakarnya demi lahan kebunmu, mengambil semua kayu hutanku. Kau menusukku dengan pipa pipa dan bor, menyedot habis seluruh minyakku, mengeruk semua batu baraku dan meninggalkan seluruh limbahnya ditubuhku. Kau bukan satu satunya 'anakku', serangga, burung, gajah, harimau, hewan, tumbuhan serta makhluk lainnya hidup berdampingan denganmu. Tapi, kau memburu mereka dengan serakah, menjadikan kulit kulit mereka perhiasan untuk sepatumu, jaket cantikmu dan tas tas branded milikmu. Aku tak pernah pernah marah ketika kau memanfaatkan semua yang terkandung dari tubuhku, karena memang untuk itu aku diciptakan, untuk memenuhi kebutuhanmu. Tapi sadar atau tidak kau sudah terlalu menyakitiku, menghajarku dengan bahan peledak, mengeksploitasi alamku dan merusak ekosistem lautku. Kini tubuhku sudah mulai renta. Jangan salahkan aku jika banjir dan tanah longsor menimpamu. Jangan salahkan aku ketika isi perutku keluar tanpa kendali, mengotori sumur sumurmu, kebunmu, hunianmu. Jangan salahkan aku ketika asap kebakaran hutan mengganggu pandanganmu dan menyesakkan paru-parumu. Aku sudah lelah, jangan tambah penderitaanku, tolong rawat aku, tolong jaga aku. #30hbc1923#30haribercerita#30hbc19bumi @30haribercerita ______________________________________________ Cr pict : unknown #motherearth#earth#bumi#ibupertiwi#gaia#stopplasticpollution#saveearth#thereisnoplanetb
Palm oil has devastating impacts on the environment. It's the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet and is hidden away in half of all packaged products! We've been researching and speaking to some people about potential alternatives but we're still a while away from this. Lab grown algae and seaweed look promising but it needs big investment and backing to commercialize it at scale. We'd love to know if you've seen any other options or your thoughts on where to go from here? P.S. @palmoilinvestigations also has an app you can download for checking the palm oil in products (and you can help them out in creating this database too!).
Stop using single use plastic cups and straws! . . In July of 2017 Japan announced they will no longer accept any recycling from foreign countries ( this is where your recycling goes) that is more then 1% contaminated. In the United States the lowest contamination in a recycling facility is 4%. For the past few months all of Oregon's recycling alone has gone straight to landfills. Your recycling does not make a difference. Not saying you shouldn't recycle. But my point is. Buying plastic and recycling it does not make a difference. . . FACT- over 500 billion plastic cups are used and thrown away every year world wide. And half a billion plastic straws are used EVERY DAY. . . FACT- 100,000 marine creatures a year die from plastic entanglement and those are just the ones that are found. And approximately 1 million sea birds also die from plastic. . . FACT- it can take up to 1,000 years for plastic to decompose. . . FACT- it cost nothing to bring a glass jar with you and drink from it. . . Simple changes like this make a huge difference. You don't have to have alot of money to make a difference. Do your best. And practice more sustainable habits. 💚 . #savetheplanet#stopplasticpollution#makeadifference#tryyourbest#practicezerowaste#zerowastepractice#zerowaste#plastickills#savetheocean#vegan#lovemotherearth#wecandoit#letsdothis#pdx#pnw#mamaof3#wokemama
Uugh!! ——/ #repost @ecotimeaustralia with @get_repost ・・・ Did you know cigarettes are the single biggest source of ocean pollution? 🚬 . Not only do they contain single use plastic, but they are full of toxic chemicals which leak into the aquatic environment. 🐠 . Stop smoking today, why not save yourself and mother earth... 🌍 . 📸 @this_tab .#lovetheearth🌎 #stopplasticpollution#nosingleuseplastic#sustainablelifestyle
13/01/19 Athens, Greece during Athens Community Beach Clean's event! À lot of people came to clean the front sea of Edem (picture 2). You can see that the sea leash is very important (picture 1)so we found a lot of small piece of plastic inside (picture 3)... Also, we found a big pile of dry wood completely filled with pieces of waste of any kind (picture 4 and 5). And finally, you can see on sur last picture, the same pile cleaned 😁 Thank you @annamoissonnier for your participation! #greece#athens#edem#beachcleanup #stopplasticpollution#oceanpollution#plastic#waste#marinelitter#sea#ocean#protectocean#plasticfree#plasticfreeoceans#protectwhatyoulove #saveourseas#oceanconservation#marineconservation#marinedebris#saynotoplastic#seaoptimism#optimism#goodvibes#beach#beachpictures#mediterranean#mediterraneansea#mediterraneanlife#europe#europecountry
Sometimes we need a little balance and some positivity. This is a white seven chakra buddha prayer bracelet. The chakras are energy centers and are believed to absorb negative energy. Chakra bracelets are accessories that are said to have healing powers and they have been worn in India for centuries. ... Chakra bracelets usually consist of seven colored charms or stones that each represent one of the seven energies that needs to be balanced. When we feel good and take care of ourselves - we can make small changes that help others & the planet. 🌎💚 #takingcareofself#takingcareoftheplanet
