A few shots from #Plogging in #tokyo 🗼! We were surprised at how much litter there was, even in #YoyogiPark (which is known to be extremely tidy)... We at #SocialInnovationJapan are committed to environmental action and will continue to create opportunities for people of all ages (our youngest participant was a 1-year old!) to get involved -and have fun at the same time :) We'll be hosting more Plogging in the future, so keep your eyes peeled if you want to work up a sweat in the company of good people, enjoy the outdoors, and learn more about the issues of waste and pollution in #japan 🇯🇵🏃‍♀️💪 #EnvironmentalAwareness #EcoWarriors #GreenLiving #PlasticPollution
When I’m not in leggings, i pretty much dress like Steve Jobs 99.9% of the time, which makes minimal living surprisingly easy to do! 🙌🏼 . . Before becoming a yoga teacher, i worked (and still do) in fashion and until recently never gave the byproducts of the industry a second thought. Watching #fashionsdirtysecrets a few months ago was a huge eye opener, i was horrified to learn that it’s the second largest polluting industry on the planet 🌍😱. . . We’re discovering more everyday about the real cost of our consumer habits and it feels overwhelming and impossible to live an existence that isn’t damaging in some way, but awareness itself shapes our attitudes and that’s a pretty good place to start. . . By making a conscious effort to scale back on buying clothes, choosing quality over quantity, supporting sustainable brands (where we can), sending what we don’t wear off to charity shops, donating to friends or recycling can all help toward cleaning up the industry, and our planet. And I have to say It’s surprisingly satisfying to just keep and wear the few things you love. 👖☺️ . #sustainableliving #sustainablefashion #buyless #makeachangetoclimatechange #environmentalawareness #minimalliving #althoughyoushouldseethecrapundermybed #winterclearout #ruthless #climatechange #climatecontrol #makeachange
We were super excited to handle the music and sound design for this series of videos for @unenvironment earlier this year and even more excited to see them finally go live. Sora Jiro has been an iconic character on Japan’s Nippon TV since 2007 and these videos give a new spin on the character. To learn more about the Sora Jiro and the campaign itself check out the link in our bio! ーーーーーーー 日本の皆さん!日テレで大人気のそらジロー先生がアメリカ進出です! この度TaikoSoundは国連と日本テレビの環境問題改善キャンペーンビデオの音楽と音響を担当させていただくことができました。素晴らしいメッセージが込められていますので、皆さんチェックしてみてくださいね!
🏫 Just over a week ago, our school finished up a 2-week #ClothingSwap & #ClothingDrive + #TextileRecying Initiative! 👚 👞 🧢 ♻️ . We partnered with #Bag2School , a company that provides free textile pickup for schools, and gives $200/ton of clothing. ♻️➡️💰 After many of the clothes were taken by our students, we still had enough donations left to earn us $63.. (Just over 1000 lbs) . I plan to use the funds to get green bins in our cafeteria 💚🍌🦴🥪 #Compost (#OrganicWaste in the #garbage contributes to #methane emissions - #CombatClimateChange ) . I’m proud to have been able to head this project, and wanted to share that the feeling of accomplishment and making a difference was well worth the extra effort! . Did you know? 💭 Doing #volunteer work and charitable/kind acts has been proven scientifically to boost your immune system! 💪🏼 ✨ . Hooray for win-wins! 💯😊💗 . #EnvironmentalAwareness #TextileIndustry #Rethink #Secondhand #FastFashion #SlowFashion #Pollution #LoveOurPlanet 🌎

What are some small changes that you have made to live a more sustainable life? - I was first introduced to sustainable living through Lauren Singer, AKA the girl that keeps all of her trash in a mason jar. At first, I thought that in order to live a truly sustainable life, you had to be as committed to the cause as her. In other words, if you produced more than a jar’s worth of trash, you weren’t doing it right. - As I delved deeper into sustainability, I learned that it’s ok to make a few slip-ups now and then. Upholding a perfectionist mentality is no way to start a new lifelong journey. Don’t get me wrong; what Lauren’s doing is great. But her lifestyle can seem a bit intimidating for beginners. - If you’re contemplating whether to start a more sustainable life, I highly encourage it! However, I advise you to take baby steps. Start with something simple, like using reusable utensils and water bottles. After that, maybe you could try composting or buying groceries from bulk stores. - As you start evolving into a more sustainable individual, you’ll find it easier to make more and more changes. Then, eventually maybe you too will have your own mason jar trash can! . . . . . #trashisfortossers #reduceplastic #impactinvesting #ecofriendly #lowwaste #zerowaste #conciousconsumer #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #goinggreen #ethicalliving #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #packagefree #goingzerowaste #choosetoreuse #buylesschoosewell #protecttheearth #environmentalawareness #breakfreefromplastic

My empties!. . I absolutely am a product of the product! I use these oils every day all day. The list of oils and oil infused products that I use before 10 a.m. is pretty darn impressive!. Knowing that I have reduced my exposure and my family's exposure to environmental and household toxins has been absolutely transformational and love changing. The health benefits of being #pharmafree have been priceless. #priceless #healthiswealth .

A new discovery shows that moss has the ability to detect minor changes in air quality, giving us a sustainable and inexpensive way to indicate pollutants in the air. Who knew such old plants could help us protect our future. Image: @momentsbyjosh
There is a certain magic about the Peepal tree. It has several scientific benefits for the environment. It is a complete ecosystem in itself. It gives out enormous amounts of oxygen, provides a home to several birds and animals, pumps groundwater, has an expansive root system and helps in providing plenty of rains due to evapo-transpiration. It can live on for thousands of years. It only needs maintenance for 2-3 years, after which it becomes self sufficient. It is rightly called the King among all trees. In the Bhagwad Gita, even Lord Krishna has said - 'Among all trees, I am the Peepal tree'. No wonder the Peepal tree is considered to be sacred and spiritual. #ngo #environment #trees #environmentalist #nature #naturelovers #plants #peepalbaba #peepaltree #peepal #greenery #environmental #environmentalawareness #spiritual #spirituality #spiritualquotes #spiritualawareness #nonprofit #nonprofitorganization #nonprofits #environmentalscience
When walking on St Kitts beaches during nesting season, you may see items like these. These are marking stakes and predator guards for sea turtle nests our patrol team has located and/or relocated! We ask you leave them undisturbed as the eggs incubate for around 60 days and we will be monitoring them through until they hatch and the nest is excavated. Thank you! 📸@sabrina.i.d ⠀ .⠀ Swipe right ➡️ to see veteran volunteer Mr Theo Taylor repping his #plasticfree July t-shirt while relocating a nest this summer.

Taking responsibility for our Mangrove environment is the task of all of us. From the man in the street to high government officials, celebrities, kids in schools, organizations and companies (especially those that have profited from the environment while degrading it). Let’s join hands in creating and nurturing environmental awareness by our BOLD actions. How about planting some Mangrove trees in 2019? Kudos @mangrovecareforum 👍👍👍. You guys doing great in Bali, Indonesia. Nigeria, let’s go to work!. #mangrove #environment #awakening #manandmangroves #environmentalawareness #trees #treeplanting #growyourgram #booklaunch #ecology #nature #green

12 Days of Environmental Mindfulness: Day 8 - I do a lot of online shopping for things I can not buy from locally owned businesses. Did you know that by choosing your goodies to come in the fewest shipments possible instead of several small quicker shipments is more eco friendly? Less packaging and less driving means a smaller carbon footprint. #smallchangesarebigchanges . . . . . . . #mindfulshopping #reducecarbonfootprint #mindfulness #environmentalawareness #yogaoffthemat

#plasticattack Did you know that UK supermarkets create 59 BILLION pieces of plastic packaging a year? Today I took part in a peaceful demonstration where we went to @tescofood to do our usual grocery shopping, and then we unwrapped our food outside and put all the plastic in one trolley to create awareness around plastic pollution. It went so well, Tesco were cooperative and even though we said that we will dispose all the plastic ourselves they kindly recycled it in the store. Plastic is harmful for the animals, us humans and our environment. We hope that Tesco and other supermarkets will switch to more sustainable packaging, and that people in general will think twice before they choose the plastic wrapped items over loose items if they have the choice on this. 🌎 Let's stop polluting our oceans, cos else we'll soon end up swimming in plastic🌊 And a big thank you to my friend @treesnpeace who organised this event 🌿 . . . #plasticattackglobal #noplastic #demonstration #peacefuldemonstration #environmentalist #environmentalawareness #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #vegan #ecowarrior #tesco #supermarkets #nowaste #sustainability #sustainable #zerowastevegan #activism #environmentalactivism #oceanpollution #endplasticpollution #plasticpollution

#MAKASI & Bamboo Healing Sounds - Didgeridoos 🎋🎵🎋 . The Australian aboriginal didgeridoo comes in many different shapes and forms but it is suggested that it was originally made from Bambusa arnhemica bamboo. It is possible that termite hollowed Eucalyptus trees were also used in pre-colonial times but evidence suggests that bamboo was the predominant original material. Back then, internal bamboo diaphragms were propably removed by dropping hot coals down the tubes. The didgeridoo (also known as a didjeridu, didj or didge) is a wind instrument developed by indigenous aboriginal communities in Northern Australia. Didgeridoos are made from a hollowed cylindrical or conical tube with a beeswax mouthpiece, usually they are 3 to 6 feet long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Generally speaking, the longer the instrument, the lower the pitch or key of the instrument. Wanna make your own Bamboo Didj?

N A T U R E is evenly balanced. We cannot disturb her equilibrium, for we know that the law of Cause and Effect is the unerring and inexorable law of nature; but we do fail to find our own equilibrium as nations and as individuals, because we have not yet learned that the same law works as inexorably in human life and in society as in nature - that what we sow, we must inevitably reap. - Sidney Bremer #natureornothing #beonewithnature #connectwithnature #respectnature #naturalspirit #wearenature #biocentrism #bemindful #bethechange #environmentalist #environmentalawareness #liveconsciously #loveyoursurroundings #lovenature #autumnwoods #morninglight #goldenhour #welivetoexplore #getoutside #letsgosomewhere #intothewild #thegreatoutdoors #outdoorfolk #outdoortrip #landscapehunter #wildernessculture #meetmeinthewoods #followmeintothewild #naturechild #childofnature

Conservation? As I realise the impact of farming and of our general existence more and more I realise that conservation here needs to involve getting rid of pests, doing so does require lead, copper, brass, cordite projectiles which are fired through a tempered steel chamber. Everything we've ever done has had a production cost, even if we're doing it to conserve something or just for fun.

Some weekend thoughts...I think it’s sad how we ruin our oceans and rivers by polluting with plastics and other kind of trash and chemicals where innocent marine animals live. It’s a big subject for me trying to avoid unnecessary plastics in my studio and home lately. But Honestly it’s a big challenge for me. Sure, I changed small things...I’m not using plastic trash bags in my studio anymore or use washable wipes for my equipment (is it better than paper wipes? I don’t know), using organic cleanser etc. But going into a Supermarket is a real „Plastic Invasion“, isn’t it?! What are you doing to avoid plastic trash? Maybe you have some really good ideas? Write me! I‘m interested! 🤗———————————————————- repost from @ koendehaeck_sup #schütztunsereumwelt #eigenverantwortung #responsibility #protectyourenvironment #protectouroceans #weekendthoughts #protectourrivers #weltverbesserer #pilatesteacherproblems #pilates #suplover #keepourwatersclean #sauberegewässer #umweltschutz #whatcanwedo #helpless #hilflos #betterfutureforall #pilatessup #yogasup #beachlover #suplovers #pilateslife #suplife #waterislife #suplifestlyle #environmentalawareness #waterworld #naturelover 💚
