When you wake up to this.... and I'm not referring to the weather. . It makes me so sad. I think its become so "normal" to see this, for most people they don't SEE it. Or if they do they expect the council to clear it up. If there's still stuff about this evening I will go out and pick it up, feeling mega guilt that I can't do it right now. . . #binday #keepbarrytidy #waronwaste #bloodyseagulls #plasticpollution #ifyouseeitpickitup #recycle

T H E. F U T U R E. O F B U T T S. Taking a page from the millions of people who make New Year's resolutions to quit smoking, Philip Morris International (PM), which traces its roots to a 19th century London tobacconist's shop, has announced it hopes to kick the habit as well. In full-page ads in several U.K. newspapers in January this year, Philip Morris said it aims to quit selling cigarettes in Britain at an unspecified future date, a goal the company admits won't be easy to meet. It plans to launch a website to provide smokers with information on quitting and on alternatives to cigarettes. Philip Morris also plans to support anti-smoking efforts of local U.K. governments in areas where smoking rates are highest and to seek approvals to insert information on quitting and switching to alternatives into cigarette packs. "We believe we have an important role to play in helping the U.K. become smoke-free," wrote Peter Nixon, managing director of PML, in a letter to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May. "The commitments announced January 5th 2028 are practical steps that could accelerate that goal. We recognize that never starting to smoke -- or quitting altogether -- are always the best option." Critics of the tobacco industry aren't impressed. "This is the same-old, same-old from a company that's a convicted racketeer," said Erika Sward, assistant vice president for national advocacy at the American Lung Association. "Make no mistake, Philip Morris is still very much in the tobacco and cigarette business as well as the cigar and the smokeless [tobacco] business." Like other tobacco companies, Philip Morris has been developing alternatives to conventional cigarettes in recent years, such as e-cigarettes. Fans of the technology argue that it can help people quit smoking, a claim tobacco critics say hasn't been definitively proven by scientific studies. Indeed, many experts were alarmed by recent data that show increasing use of e-cigarettes by teenagers, according to Robin Koval, the head of the Truth Initiative, an anti-tobacco nonprofit. "If they really wanted to give up cigarettes ... they could do that tomorrow," said Koval Source @cbsnews

H E L L O. M E R M A I D S. @plasticfreemermaid and @emi_campbell are some seriously conservative women, showing their butts for a great cause! @theonlybutt is on a mission to get butts on bins and off our streets which lead to our oceans! That’s right 95% of beach litter found comes via storm water, which is why getting butts in bins is just so important! @theonlybutt is a great way to raise awareness and we all get to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us everyday, by seeing beautiful butts like these in our ocean! Thank you @alexkyddphoto for having the difficult task of photographing these 2 gorgeous ladies in our mission to raise consciousness ✌🏻🍑💙🦋🐋 . . . . . . . . . #mermaid #ocean #sea #sealife  #ocean #sea #angelsofthesea #discoverocean #mermaidlife #oceanlife #parksvictoria #wanderlust #visitvictoria #discoverocean #butt #cigarette #cigarettebutts #litter #litterprevention #keepaustraliabeautiful #theonlybutt #plastictotheocean #plastic #stoplittering #useyourbutt #worldissue #butts #melbourne #ifyouseeitpickitup #take3 #take3forthesea #surfriderfoundation #2minutebeachclean

Little things add up too! Didn’t find a lot of litter, that was refreshing! But we did find little things, like this battery pictured. No longer in the woods. 👍🏻 - #wildrecyclers #ifyouseeitpickitup #makelitterpickingcool #cleanupeffort #nature #leavenaturenatural #camping #cleanup #lovetheearth #litter #trash #environment #environmenthealth

PLEASE READ: I realized last nite that if your page is set to private and I don’t follow you I can’t see your beach clean posts when I search the hashtag for the month. So firstly for anyone that posted on any of the campaigns that was missed I’m sorry..I didn’t know that was happening. This is not a perfect system and I’m doing the best I can. SO I’VE ADDED A NEW RULE 2️⃣ (SWIPE 👈🏼👈🏼) for details. It’s the only way for your posts to show up when I do the end of the month tally. I try to follow back when possible but I don’t have the time to go into that many accounts. I really don’t keep track of likes and follows. I’ve always said if you post mostly Bodysurfing pics and clean up beaches just send me a message and I will follow back. My alerts only come 100 at time and I’m going to miss a lot so tagging my page or messages are best way to grab my attention and let me know that maybe I’m not following when I should. I want everyone that’s participating to get credit so please either make your profile public OR reach out to let me know that your are doing good work for your local beach. So far so good this month I’m seeing 46 posts for the #yuccafinscares campaign. Keep it up and sorry again for the mistake with the private accounts. 🤙🏼🌎🙏🏼 #webodysurfers

T H E. M O R E. O F T E N. We see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less Joseph B.

Tighes Hill NSW. Walk from my house through Islington Park & back. It feels insurmountable at times... picking up plastic time & time again & then smacking my own forehead when I mindlessly buy something that’s plastic. I saw lots of rubbish in Throsby Creek on the bottom of the creek bed - it was low tide so I could see quite clearly (see insta story) Sometimes when I think will it ever change, will this ever be better... will we be able to fix this?? I have to hold onto hope... I have to remind myself that there are so many people out there with huge hearts & passions & likeminded souls & it will change - slowly... but surely! #pointlessplastic #waronplastic #ifyouseeitpickitup #keepourwatersclean #keepplasticoutoftheocean

H E L L O. L A D Y. E L L I O T. I S L A N D. Lady Elliot island is part of a ‘green no take’ zone on the Great Barrier Reef which is one of the highest protected ones, meaning all items must be left untouched. The island has over 1200 different marine species including a resident population of 40 Manta Rays, one of which was willing to show us their butt, thanks to the amazing work of @adrianbullockphotography Thanks so much Adrian for helping us raise awareness and get butts in bins . . . . . . . . . #mermaid #ocean #sea #sealife  #ocean #sea #angelsofthesea #discoverocean #mermaidlife #oceanlife #parksvictoria #wanderlust #visitvictoria #discoverocean #butt #cigarette #cigarettebutts #litter #litterprevention #keepaustraliabeautiful #theonlybutt #plastictotheocean #plastic #stoplittering #useyourbutt #worldissue #butts #melbourne #ifyouseeitpickitup #take3 #take3forthesea #surfriderfoundation #2minutebeachclean

B U T T. I T. B I N. I T. O R. W E. S W I M. I T We went for dinner at @delposto2409 on Saturday night and the meal was, as always incredible! We couldn’t help but notice that patrons took turns in going outside to smoke and all of them littered 👎🏼 Now it’s not easy to bring this sort of thing up with establishments, however all businesses have a social responsibility to either communicate/educate or offer an ashtray. The owners were great, and agreed with me that something could be done and that they’d work on it. 🏆 On departing we picked up 7 cigarette butts from the front of the restaurant, studies show that rubbish found at the front of business does impact the business itself, so we were happy to lend a hand 👌🏻🚬👉🏻🗑 We look forward to seeing what solution they will offer If anyone has any ideas, that are safe and effective, please share ✌🏻🍑 . . . . . . . . . #mermaid #ocean #sea #sealife  #ocean #sea #angelsofthesea #discoverocean #mermaidlife #oceanlife #parksvictoria #wanderlust #visitvictoria #discoverocean #butt #cigarette #cigarettebutts #litter #litterprevention #keepaustraliabeautiful #theonlybutt #plastictotheocean #plastic #stoplittering #useyourbutt #worldissue #butts #melbourne #ifyouseeitpickitup #take3 #take3forthesea #surfriderfoundation #2minutebeachclean

MOUNT MARTHA BEACH GETS A SPIT AND POLISH!!! @dive2u once again joined the legends from the @seashepherdmarinedebristeam for a clean up at South Beach. Although the shocking visibility made a snorkel clean-up impossible, the sun was out and 100 awesome volunteers braved the chilly winds to help us clean up the beach and foreshore!! Fabulous to see an ever increasing number of families at these events, and all the kiddies loved helping sort the mountainous pile of litter! All data is counted and sorted and will be submitted to the @tangaroablue Australian Marine Debris Database. We shall be doing more regular beach/snorkel/dive clean-ups as the water warms up, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange your own cleanup, or would like more details on how you can become involved!! #dive2uconservation #seashepherdmarinedebriscampaignaustralia #ifyouseeitpickitup #stemthetide

As it turns out, this is the most popular post on my page. 👌 Which is pretty rad, as it sums up the main goal of my social media experiment, simply: “Inspire others to get out there and make a positive difference, and be a badass eco warrior while we’re at it!” So really, I couldn’t be more pleased that this post got so much attention! It must mean I’ve found the right audience. ❤️ Or did they find me? How did YOU find me?? I’d love to know! Also, what do you enjoy seeing on here? Like, what inspires you the most? Beach-cleans? My art? The process? Yoga stuff? Random talking videos? Plants??? Comments please! 😊 Original post: A 🙂 find in #OysterBay New York. Ever done a beach clean? Try it! I promise, it will give you only good vibes. And good karma. 🤙✌️Even if it’s just a couple of pieces, every little bit helps. Then share it! Maybe your little effort will inspire someone to do the same. And then they’ll inspire someone else to do it. And then... you get the idea. And while you’re at it, add some of the # below to spread your findings.

Our outdoor loving family is making sure to get out this weekend, enjoy nature in the woods and do some clean up if we find litter! ♻️♻️♻️♻️ We hope you can get out and do the same! ♻️🌎🚮 #wildrecyclers #recycle #ifyouseeitpickitup #litterpicking #makelitterpickingcool #cleanup #cleanupeffort #movement #environmenthealth #importance #reducereuserecyclerefuse

Spent yesterday touring Yellowstone National Park and picking up litter along the way. Our National Parks are our national heritage handed down from past generations and that we hand down to future generations. They belong to the people - and so it is our responsibility as much as it is the Park Service’s to be a part of that conservation. We need wild places. As President Lyndon B Johnson said: "If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it." #litterati #ifyouseeitpickitup #5piecesaday #nationalparks #wildernessconservation #dontlitter #yellowstone #waterfalls
