What’s this? You mean you haven’t heard? Plastic’s in your salt. Yeah, the salt you put in your food, the salt you pass around the table. Our plastic crisis is THAT serious. 🤧 . This Earth Day, spread more awareness about the crisis plaguing our one and only planet Earth — watch our video and share the campaign, because we’ve got one Earth, and we certainly don’t need microplastics polluting it. #LinkInBio
The Earth doesn't belong to man. Man belongs to the earth. Happy celebrating Earth Day 2019, our earthy fellas! . Yuk kita buat Bumi kita bahagia di Hari Bumi ini! Caranya gak susah kok, cukup dengan memulai langkah-langkah kecil untuk menyelamatkan bumi kita dan coba lakukan secara konsisten setiap harinya.. Kamu bisa mulai dari membawa botol minum, sedotan pakai ulang, memilah sampah, dan langkah kecil lainnya, yang kalau dilakukan bersama akan menjadi sangat bermakna demi planet kita yang lebih baik untuk anak dan cucu kita 😊🏡💚

What a great Easter weekend❤ Yesterday we finished our mini-expedition on the Wadden Sea. Two days filled with research, clean ups and adventures. We would like to thank everyone who joined us on this trip. A special thanks to Julio Rosier from waterontharder.com, the crew of tv program The Dutch Way and the sailing crew of the Storebaelt! #unescoheritage #earthday #plasticfreeoceans #expetition #plasticpollution #plastic #zeilen #instafollow #nature #instagood #ocean #ourocean #5minutebeachcleanup #refusesingleuse #microplastics #take3forthesea #harlingen #terschelling #waddenzee #easter #netherlands
Una bolsa menos en @supermasymas y una bolsa más en el mar! Pero esta vez el patrón @erastornado estuvo atento. Porque no sólo los buceadores bajo el agua tienen la misión de proteger los fondos, la función de los patrones es básica para recoger la basura en superficie y evitar que llegue más allá... Pero ya sabéis que esto es el último escalón como quien dice...antes hay que dejar de usar, de esta forma dejará de existir en los ecosistemas dónde no son bienvenidos #nomasplastico #unsolouso #plasticfree #cantabrico #savetheplanet #savethesea #sea #microplastics #ocean #asturias #candas
Summitted #Kilimanjaro with @TwendeMaasaiTours #Incredible trip. Receding #glaciers are alarming. #plastic #trash was nonstop. Made heavy use of @deuter dirtbag every day - collected at least 10kg of trash -and the #Tanzania #NationalParks pays trail cleaners!!!! This #earthday list compromises you will make to take care of the #earth . So much #natural #beauty on the planet - let it affect you for change.

Happy #EarthDay 🌍⁣ ⁣ How mind boggling is it that there are more microplastics in the ocean than stars in the milky-way? ✨💫⁣ ⁣ If you aren’t familiar with microplastics, they’re teeny tiny microscopic-like plastic particles that are often found in everyday personal care items such as toothpaste, and mostly, in our oceans.⁣ Plastic doesn’t biodegrade - it sticks around forever polluting the environment. ⁣ ⁣ When we launched nüut, we were super conscious of not adding to the problem - so, we decided to devise a full end-to-end recycling solution for our sachets. ⁣ 3-steps, that’s it. Our recycling program is designed to reduce, reuse and recycle ♻️ Check out our stories to find out how simple we’ve made it. ⁣ ⁣ Let’s crush plastic! 👊🏽 ⁣ ⁣ #sustainability #climatechange #earthday2019 #ecofriendly #recycle #reuse #plasticfree #gogreen #crueltyfree #cleanouroceans #saveourplanet #govegan #crushplastic #zerowaste #plantvasedlife #sustainableliving #lowimpact #motherearth #reducewaste #environmentalawareness #microplastics #globalwarming #protectourspecies #veganism #vegansofperth #vegansofuk #earthpix
April 22nd is recognized around the world as Earth Day, a celebration of our planet and its natural wonders. The U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna works on issues that are directly related to preserving our earth, like promoting nuclear power (carbon-free energy), supporting international research to combat ocean acidification and microplastics, combating transnational wildlife crime and timber trafficking, assisting with disaster mitigation from space, and much more!

Within 1 hour this morning, we collected this amongst the high tide line on 13th Beach. Humans amaze me with their attitude to the natural world. This has to stop. #13thbeach #barwonheads #oceansofplastic #beachrubbish #microplastics
The beach of my childhood. This almost broke me today. I was overwhelmed to the point of tears. I #beachclean whenever I hit sand but I was not prepared for this. There was no end to it. #nurdles everywhere. #microplastics all over. Footprints through the #beachgarbage but I saw no one (save the folks I was with) doing anything. please! If you walk on the beach, pick up some trash. #ittybittyplasticcommittee #giveashit #limitplasticuse #oregoncoast #thepeoplescoast #oregon #donttrashthebeach @nurdlecoasts .. can we talk? I think the Oregon beaches could use some help
Hi there little guy! . Vacationing in Maui I was expecting white sand beaches. And they were beautiful. But upon a closer look, micro plastics littered the sand. And this little guy found this piece of plastic home. Micro plastics are a big problem. Please, donate your time, and if you can money, to foundations and projects that dedicate themselves to cleaning up our oceans. . #beachlife 🌴 #microplastics #microplastic #marinelife #saveouroceans #cleanuptheocean #oneocean #photography #education #cleanup #plastics #beach #whitesandbeach #whitesandbeaches #oceancreatures #oceanlife #help #advocate #beach #beaches #island #islandlife #beachcrab #newcamera #maui #mauihawaii #hawaii #vacation #springbreak #ocean
Spent a beautiful Easter day cleaning up the trash from our beaches . . . . #beachcleanup #sustainablecoastlineshawaii #nofilter #nofilterneeded #earthday #easter #microplastics
Wow. We are up to day 22 of #2minbcphotochallenge8 already! Today's theme is #polystyrene - a litterpickers nemesis and the dread of anyone who cares about the world? Why? Because this shizzle isn't just one piece of plastic. It's lots of tiny pieces stuck together, ready and waiting to break into thousands of #microplastics given half a chance, microplastics which will be eaten by countless creatures. I can't walk past any polystyrene without picking it up because I know how bad it can get. Share your pictures of the dreaded polystyrene and tag the places it comes from, if you happen to know. We'll pick our favorite later and share a little prize! #dontbeatosser #pointlesspackaging @zedster57 #2minutebeachclean #keepbritaintidy #IAmABeachGuardian #
So I got smacked down with a really nasty cold the last couple days so I’m not going to finish my #22greenitems post by tomorrow like intended, but wanted to continue to share a few more of my #sustainability tips because I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback from everyone. ♻️💚🌿This post is about clothes 👚👗👖👕 namely about the micro-plastic fibers that make up most of our clothes these days. Nylon, polyester, rayon, spandex, fleece. These are all fabrics made of plastic polymer chains that while they may disintegrate, they won’t actually biodegrade for hundreds of years. These items have the same plastic footprint as a water bottle or single use bag, worse in some ways because they are more easily ingested (as tiny particles) by animals and us, and aren’t accepted at recycling centers. I’m not saying to go through your closet and trash all your mixed fabric items, all of my posts encourage using the things you have for as long as you can before replacing with a more environmentally sustainable alternative. What I am suggesting is that when you buy something new try for 100% cotton, silk, or wool. Or really any natural fiber that can naturally biodegrade back into the environment. When buying plastic fabric clothing opt for second hand items, to decrease the demand for newly produced plastic fabric clothing. Get out of the #fastfashion fads, and actually wear your clothes until they enter a new life as your cleaning rags. The negative environmental impacts of disposable fashion go way beyond #microplastics but this was an aspect I hadn’t even thought about until recently and wanted to pass it on. If you’d like to learn more about #ethicalfashion check out my friend Jesse’s blog @themisandthread

Beautiful day for a beach cleanup! But we probably should do this every other day right? Because there’s a lot of opala (trash) on the beach...! Lots of #microplastics .

This is Lady's Mile Beach in Limassol. Till this day it's been my favourite beach in the world, mostly because of the amazing childhood memories I have here. . Just behind the sand dunes of the beach is the Zakaki Marsh, which is the remnant of a once larger wetland. This site is especially important during winter and spring migration where one can see Herons and Glossy Ibis. The site is also one of the few where the Ferruginous Duck, a species of global conservation concern, breeds. . Yesterday I joined the efforts of @letsmakecyprusgreen to clean up this site and what we found dumbfounded me. Among the various items of garbage that I picked up myself were 3 couches, 2 toilets, a parachute, a queen sized mattress, plastic tables & chairs, hundreds of PVC pipes, countless tyres and enough plastic bottles to fill up a Hummer (limo sized). I'd like to also add that this organisation had done the same cleanup in the same place not just 6 months ago. . Now I could easily turn this into an angry rant, one that is judgemental and targeted at those who have harmed a place so close to me but that would do no good. I say this because I don't believe there are any so called "bad" or "evil" people in this world, there are only ignorant, misguided or truly troubled individuals. So I'd rather take this opportunity to educate, and there is nowhere better to start than plastics. . 1 According to the UN, ingestion of plastic kills an estimated 1 million marine birds and 100,000 marine animals each year. . 2 More than 90% of all birds and fish are believed to have plastic particles in their stomach. It’s because plastic breaks up into tiny pieces in the sea (microplastics), which are then consumed by fish and other sea animals. . 3 Research has found that close to 700 species of marine life are facing extinction due to the increase of plastic pollution. . 4 The average person consumes 70,000 microplastics a year. . Finally to any Cypriots reading this, I'd like to add that the vast majority of volunteers yesterday were actually foreigners, cleaning up OUR home. . If you are reading this, please remember, there is no Planet B, we only have 1 home so let's treat it accordingly.
Styrofoam-EATING Mealworms! - As plastic waste becomes prevalent in the remotest parts of the world, scientists scramble for a solution. - Recycling has been tried, but it is majorly unsuccessful. - In an attempt to solve this problem, researchers at Stanford University and other Chinese scientists are looking into MEALWORMS. - According to their research, mealworms can EAT styrofoam and excrete biodegradable material! - The goal is not to release millions of mealworms into landfills, but to figure out how the mealworms do it! - 💬: Do you want to reduce your plastic footprint?

Really sad to have been picking all these #plastics out of the meter of sand around where I was sunbathing in #porthtowan - #microplastics were just everywhere and it didn’t matter how long I went through the same patch of sand, there was always MORE! #plasticfree #marineplastic #plasticlitter #beachcleaning

Mikroplastik wird nach seiner Entstehung unterteilt in primäres Mikroplastik und sekundäres Mikroplastik. Unter primärem Mikroplastik versteht man Plastikgranulat, welches direkt in seiner finalen Größe hergestellt wird, es findet Anwendung zum Beispiel als Strahlmittel, in Kosmetikprodukten, in Reinigungsprodukten oder wird industriell weiterverarbeitet. Sekundäres Mikroplastik sind dagegen Partikel, welche durch Umwelteinflüsse aus größeren Fragmenten entstehen. Ebenfalls gibt es Mikroplastik, welches bei der Nutzung von Plastikprodukten durch Abrieb entsteht, zum Beispiel Reifenabrieb aus dem Straßenverkehr. #Clarity #MPE #DHBWKarlsruhe #Studentenprojekt #Nachhaltigkeit #lowimpactmovement #microplastics #Mikroplastik #Umweltschutz #green #mothernature #Mikroplastikfilter #öko
Are we creating #PlasticPlanet ? Microplastics are very small pieces of plastic waste. More than 50% of the microplastics found were fragments less than 25 microns in size. What is known is that #microplastics smaller than 25 microns can enter the #human body through the #nose or #mouth and those less than 5 microns can end up in #lung tissue. It’s also known that microplastics tend to be #sticky and can #accumulate #heavymetals like mercury and persistent organic pollutants (#POPs ), including brominated flame retardants and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (#PAHs ). If we are getting hyper on microplastics, what about nanoplstics? #Nanoplastics are also everywhere but the #technology to #detect them doesn’t yet exist. More atoms are on the surface of a nanoparticle compared to its volume. This makes them more chemically reactive. Lab experiments have also shown nanoplastics #cross cell walls in samples of human #intestines . https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/04/microplastics-pollution-falls-from-air-even-mountains/

Our goal? A world without microplastics in our ocean. ⠀ 💧Microplastics are small, often difficult to detect plastic particles made from broken down plastics which wind up in the ocean. These plastics soak up pollutants (such as industrial chemicals) and are eaten by fish, which are then consumed by us 🤢⠀ 🐠☀️🐟⠀ What’s your idea of the perfect day at the beach? 🏖⠀ #plastox #environmental #plastic #environment #plastics #microplastic #microplastics #ocean #earth #climatechange
There has been a focus on single-use bottles and straws in the plastic pollution debate, but judging by the beach we cleaned in Vietnam, polystyrene (or Styrofoam) is also a significant problem. 🐋 Boulders of the stuff littered the island shore. The big pieces were easy to pick up, but loads had already broken down into hundreds and thousands of tiny crumbs. It was like someone had emptied a giant bean-bag onto the beach. 🐟 Polystyrene is used in packaging, take away boxes, buoys and fishing floats. Although it is technically possible to recycle, few places do. Like many plastics it is made from oil and gas (so it is also fuelling the climate crisis). 🦈 Governments should be considering bans or taxes on polystyrene products. As a first priority, fisher folk need help to find affordable alternatives to polystyrene buoys, floats and fish boxes. ⠀⠀ #Catba #MonkeyIsland #HalongBay #Vietnam #VietnamBeachclean #AsiaBeachClean #BanStyrofoam #SaveOurOceans #BluePlanet #PlasticPollution #PlasticFreeForTheSea #BeachCleanUp #Beachcleaning #PlasticFree #OceanCleanUp #OceanRescue #Microplastics #TrashHeroes #banstyrofoam ⠀⠀ SOURCES: ⠀⠀ https://ieep.eu/uploads/articles/attachments/376c45d7-e02b-430c-8507-86adb0be97c8/IEEP_ACES_Polystyrene_Product_Fiche_Final_April_2017.pdf ⠀⠀ https://metro.co.uk/2018/04/18/can-recycle-polystyrene-7478185/?ito=cbshare ⠀⠀ https://www.cleanwater.org/files/publications/ca/cwa_fact_sheet_polystyrene_litter_2011_03.pdf #ipreview via @preview.app

⛰🌳 Sogar in einer Bergregion, die mehr als 120 Kilometer von der nächsten Grossstadt entfernt ist, wurden Unmengen an #Mikroplastik gefunden. ∙ Mikroskopisch kleine Plastikteile gelangen über viele Wege in die #Umwelt . So werden auch abgelegene und kaum besiedelte Regionen verschmutzt. Forscher untersuchten kürzlich die französischen #Pyrenäen , eine Bergkette, die sich über mehr als 430 km zwischen Spanien und Frankreich erstreckt. ∙ Laut Bericht der Fachzeitschrift Nature Geoscience, lagerten sich dort im Schnitt 365 Mikropartikel pro Quadratmeter täglich ab. ∙ Forscher waren überrascht, dass die Luftströmungen einen bedeutenden Anteil daran haben und die Mikroteilchen so sogar in einem 1'400 Meter hoch liegenden Gebiet verteilt werden können. Auch die Wetterbedingungen wie Regen und Schnee spielen dabei eine Rolle. ∙ Bisher hatte man angenommen, dass #Mikroplastik vor allem über Flüsse in weit entfernte Regionen transportiert wird. ∙ Die Wissenschaftler vom Forschungsinstitut @ecolab_inc in Frankreich führten die Studie über fünf Monate hinweg. Die schlussendlichen Modellrechnungen ergaben, dass die Partikel von bis zu 95 Kilometer entfernten Quellen stammten. ∙ 🌱@improvemagch #TomorrowIsNow
Clean oceans and beaches are undoubtedly breathtakingly beautiful and in order to keep enjoying these sights , we all need to do our part for our seas ! - Tides are very strong forces of nature and they can sweep anything from tiny micro plastics to boat pieces into the ocean. For example whales and whale sharks 🦈 all over the world ingest micro plastics in alarming quantities because they are filter feeders. Micro plastics have toxic substances that can poison the animals and stop them from absorbing nutrients correctly if accumulated:( - You can reduce your use of single use plastics today ! Try drinking from the cup instead of asking for a straw , or buy reusable plastic containers instead when you take out food. Every bit of effort helps ! 🌈 #microplastics #doyourpart #oceanconservation Follow @0cean_conservation for more !!
#HappyEaster ! Instead of hunting eggs, hunt nurdles & microplastics! #Microplastics are any plastic less than 5 millimeters; fragments from larger plastic debris or #nurdles , raw resin pellets known as “mermaid tears." #WetTribe #tidetotheocean Share your #NurdleHunt

On dit toujours que c’est le gouvernement qui doit investir dans de nouvelles sources d’énergie, de transports etc... mais réellement , si tout le monde commençait à utiliser des brosses à dents en bambou, les compagnies comme @colgate verrait la tendance et commencerait à en produire. NOUS, les consommateurs, sont ceux qui font à la base, l’impact! @plastinc.app #plastic #earth #planet #planetearth #zerowaste #zerodechets #changementsclimatiques #climatechange #planeteterre #sauvonslesoceans #ocean #fish #animals #marinelife #microplastics #terre #planete #vegan #vegane #climatechangeisreal #youarethechange #change #changements #youarechange #plasticsucks #pollution #environment #climatestrike #you
Mengurangi sampah plastik memang gak gampang karna kebiasaan yang sudah lama terbentuk. Siapa yang seringkali sudah bawa sedotan sendiri dan minta jangan pake sedotan plastik eh tiba-tiba pas pesen minuman masih dikasih sedotan? :( Ada yang punya tips ampuh supaya kita tidak diberikan sedotan plastik? Coba sharing di seksi komentar di bawah! . #Earthday #ElloJelloEarthDayPromo
#microplastics #microplásticos . el microplastico es casi invisible y entra en la cadena alimenticia mucho más rápido por su tamaño. Rechaza y reduce lo que más puedas el uso de plástico.

Hundreds of marine species are known to eat plastic! But why? It now seems that ocean-borne plastic has a smell that marine animals find appealing. . Studies have found that drifting plastic waste accumulates algae and gives off a smell very similar to the krill that many marine birds and animals feed on. The findings could explain why certain birds - including albatrosses and shearwaters - which rely on their sense of smell for hunting, are particularly vulnerable to swallowing plastic and microplastic. . Algae is eaten by krill, a small crustacean that is the primary food source for many sea birds. As algae breaks down naturally in the ocean, they let off a stinky sulfur odor known as dimethyl sulfide (DMS). Sea birds hunting for krill have learned that the sulfur odor will lead them to their feeding grounds. It turns out that floating plastic debris provides the perfect platform on which algae thrives. As the algae breaks down, emitting the DMS odor, sea birds, following their noses in search of krill, and are led to algae covered plastic pieces. So sadly, instead of feeding on krill, they feed on plastic. #microplastic #microplastics #microplasticpollution #plastic #plasticfree #oceanpollution #oceanpollutionawareness #plasticfreejuly @parley.tv #litter #plasticfreeforthesea #savetheocean #beachcleanup #beachlife #refuseplastic #refusethestraw #choosetorefuse #refusesingleuse #recycle #reuse #refusereuserecycle #reducereuserecycle #reduceplasticwaste
