plasticpollutes

Regrann from @zeroinonwaste . The Scientific American magazine recently said that “Recycling plastic is to saving the Earth what hammering a nail is to halting a falling skyscraper.” 😨⠀ ⠀ It seems recycling just can’t keep up with the mountains of single-use plastics being produced. 🤷‍♀️⠀ ⠀ How can this change? Is it up to individual consumers to change their habits, governments to implement policies and build better infrastructure, or producers to find better packaging solutions? 🤔 ⠀ ⠀ What do you think? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #Plasticpollutes #plasticpollution #zeroinonwaste #consciousconsumer #zerowaste #zerowasteuk #zerowastelondon #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastejourney #zerowastetips #noexcuseforsingleuse #reducereuserecycle #reduceplastic #singleuseplastic #plasticpollutes #plasticfreeliving #wastefree #waronwaste #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlystyle #plasticfreejuly2018 #sustainablelifestyle #sustainableproducts #refuse #reduce #reducewaste #refusesingleuse #plasticfreejuly #bethechangeyouwanttoseeintheworld

I met some pretty wonderful women last Thursday at my very first Zero Waste meet-up!! I'm grateful for what I learned from those that were able to join, appreciative of @zwmpls for putting this together, and so impressed with @moonpalacebooks space; the backroom was the perfect atmosphere, their book selection is on point, and the wine was tasty! Really great conversations and topics. My favorite: each of us told our story of what sparked the realization that there was more we could do to be better and how we got involved in this movement. Can't wait until the next one!!

in the US alone, 500 million single-use plastic straws are used daily. when thrown out, they often slip through the recycling process and end up in the ocean or in landfills, causing horrifying damage. so while we know we won't reach a perfect world over night, the world is definitely making some changes in the right direction. . "while eliminating single-use plastic straws will by no means remedy the plastic pollution crisis, by our estimates, starbucks’ commitment alone will keep more than 2.5 billion single-use plastic straws out of their coffee shops, and out of our world’s ocean." @lonelywhale shares with @people mag. . click link in bio to read our her sunday ritual and learn more about eliminating waste. __________________________________________________________ . . #hercollectives #hersundayritual #wastefree #stopsucking

Something here doesn’t belong... a single use plastic straw! It’s been almost 80 years since these endanger Great Lakes piping plovers have been seen in Toronto. Now the population is slowly coming back but facing a bigger threat: plastic pollution! 📷: @rochmanchelsea . . . . #pipingplover #skipthestraw #nostrawplease #oceanfriendlyestablishments #plasticstraw #thelaststraw #strawssuck #stopsucking #moreoceanlessplastic #toronto #canada #torontoislands #endangeredspecies #endangered #protectthepipingplover #plasticpollutes #greatlakes #greatshorelinecleanup #lakeontario #ontario #lifeonthelake #singleusesucks #plasticlakesproject #bluemind #oceangratitude #wildbluesea

Day 16 of Plastic free July. We were big buyers of convenience foods, especially prepared veg and frozen sweet potato fries. Sunday has now become meal prep day where I spend an hour making bits for the week. I found a recipe online for sp fries that could be frozen and still cooked up nicely afterward from onetwosimplecooking. My husband even thought they were shop bought when he tried them. I freeze them up in batches and they only take 20 minutes to cook from frozen. This week our veg is grilled aubergine slices, butternut squash and carrots roasted with Mexican spices and braised courgette (which I will cook up each day). My oats for milk are soaking in a pan because I ran out of containers. I also made oat milk, hummus, med veg pasta, overnight oats and oaty breakfast bars ... turns out plastic free can be convenient. Fear not zerowasters, I sorted my scraps into three groups... feed to our pets, compost and cook then feed to pets. We had some happy 🐀 🐀 #convenience #vegan #vegetarian #noplasticplease #noplastic #refusereuserecycle #batchcooking #healthyfood #sweetpotato #sweetpotatofries #homemade #recipe #oatmilk #foodprep #compost #petrat #zerowaste #zerowastefood #zerowastelifestyle #sustainable #sustainableliving #cook #cooking #vegetables #plasticfree #plasticpollutes #plasticfreejuly #plasticsucks #doitfordavid #onechangeatatime

Andy from @plasticfreewollongong was keen for a banana. Not this way. We often went without to avoid plastic. Sometimes it was heartbreaking and made no sense whatsoever. @7.eleventhailand this is ridiculous. Lose the plastic and we’ll buy the bananas. :: @pointless_packaging @plasticfreejuly @plasticpollutes :: :: #plasticpollution #thailand #plasticsucks #breakupwithplastic #plasticfreeoceans #plasticpollutionsolutions #plasticfreejuly #plasticpollutes #forgettheplastic #noplastic #plasticfreeproduce

Shampoo soap! 👀 As you all know, I wash my hair with bicarb/ rye flour and rinse with vinegar.🚿 (What?! You didn't know? I've popped a link in my profile detailing exactly how it works.👆Have a quick read, I'll wait right here for you to come back.😌 Done? Great! Oh, and no, I do not smell like fish and chips 😝) But I've been hearing a lot of things about @thesourcebulkfoods new shampoo soap bar and decided I should try it out and see what all the fuss is about. If the whole rye flour/vinegar thing isn't your bag, maybe this will be. 😀 So here it is in all its packaging free loveliness🚯💚. Since I took the pic I've given it a first test run and so far so good, but once I've given it a few more washes I'll report back, promise 😊

The best meal-preps are made after a trip to the Farmer’s Market! 👩🏻‍🌾🥦🍓🥑 You can get almost everything plastic-free. And those little berry baskets? You can take those with you next time and return/reuse them! #choosetoreuse 📷:@shutthekaleup ⠀ ⠀ Shop #stasherbag nationwide at @target! ⠀ ⠀ #farmersmarket #mealprepsunday #mealplanning #freshest #eatrealfood #eatinghealthy #eatingclean #healthyhabits #healthjourney #eatyourveggies #alwayshungry #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #passonplastic #plasticpollutes #refusesingleuse #plasticfreeforthesea #zerowaste #sustainableliving

Just some of the of Bouys I find washed in daily... Decided to take these permanently out of harms way never to go to sea again and made a garden feature fence... These would have eventually broken into smaller and smaller pieces millions and millions of pieces of plastic!!! . . @prilaga #plasticsucks #plasticbeach #plasticfreeliving #plastics #plastic #plasticbags #plasticpollution #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #prilaga #plasticbag #plasticpollutes #plasticfreeoceans #plastics #plasticworld #plasticsucks #plasticbags #exploringtheglobe #pickuptrash #beachclean #plasticpollution #seasidescavenge #dolphinsarecrying #skyoceanrescue #pickuptrash #litter

WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN!! Please remember that when you buy your kids helium balloons. We picked up Nemo’s Mermaid and many more other balloons out of the ocean about 25 miles off the coast of New York!! And Not long after our “balloon rescue” we witnessed an incredible site! A feeding frenzy at the surface by whales, dolphins and birds. These balloons could’ve easily been swallowed by those majestic creatures. #heliumballoons. #plasticpollution #globalcitizen #plasticpollutes #takeaction #moreoceanlessplastic #plasticocean

This drawing is maybe simple but I wanted to add something to it. They’re a lot of messages everywhere saying “use less plastic bags,...”. It sure helps because some people are acting, but still not enough. 5,25 trillion pieces of plastic are for the moment in the ocean . It is said that 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution, 700 marine species are affected. Let’s do something and act together for a better world ! 🌍 #plastic #plasticpollution #plasticpollutes #turtles #drawing #pollution #letsacttogether #artzworld #artcenter #artists #artoftheday #artdeco #artist #artistsoninstagram #artwork #instaart #art_spotlight #art_collective #artworks #artlife #art_be_creative •L•

We encourage everyone to live a more eco-friendly ♻️ lifestyle, spread awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and stop 🛑 the use of disposable straws.

Starting today East Gippsland and Wellington Shire Councils will offer silage wrap recycling during a four week trial from Monday July 16 to Monday August 13 2018. The drop-off point in East Gippsland is the Bairnsdale landfill at 200 Johnstons Road, Forge Creek. The cost is $11 per bulka bag. Please separate silage wrap, which can be recycled, from net wrap, which cannot be recycled. Farmers are encouraged to use this service to dispose of their wrap.
