Sharing from our friends at @savethereef ❤️ Please read their caption below :) 🙏🏽 Video by @projeto_marvivo. Let’s turn any sadness into action 😉🙌🏽 “This sad but ultimately uplifting video of a turtle rescued from being trapped in fishing net helps to show why over 1 million marine animals — dolphins, fish, sharks, turtles and birds — are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean, as kind-hearted people like this aren’t always around to cut these poor animals free from the nets that trap them. There‘s an estimated 100 million tons of plastic in oceans around the world...and nearly half of that plastic waste is fishing nets like this! We are determined to stop this madness before it’s too late, especially considering there’s even more #plasticpollution on land too and spreading awareness about this crisis is the first step so please share this video with your followers and tag people in the comments who need to be made aware of this situation ASAP! It’s we the people who must influence corporations and governments to change their behavior and laws so it’s crucial we WORK TOGETHER ASAP to make this a world that’s safe for humans and animals alike! Will you join us in this fight and help us spread awareness? Great video @projeto_marvivo #savetheturtles#ghostnets#karmagawa#saveouroceans#savethereef”
The packaging is what is so harmful. It takes 80-1000 years to decompose. Which means every plastic that was made to date still exists as it was so. High time we thought of our planet and the harm being caused. Why can’t these big companies that use such packaging change their ways? Follow @uselessplastic Repost from @candle_works
What do you think? Repost from @get.waste.ed . 25% percent of festival tents are abandoned and end up in a landfill! These cardboard tents are a smart, eco-solution! They are 100% compostable, last up to 3 days in rain and will keep you and your things dry during festival season. They are made from recycled paper (save the 🌳) and decompose within 2 months! What an exciting alternative to the waste left covering festival grounds around the world!
🥤Our landfills are becoming more and more filled with disposable cups 🥤 When you use a reusable cup, you are creating a much more positive impact on the environment and you are promoting the better health and protection of the world around you. Your efforts to stay clean and green will reduce the amount of waste going to landfills that destroy our oceans and environment. Repost from @esprit_daventuriere
