This saturday β˜€οΈ join our team for our monthly #secondsaturday beach cleanup at pounders beach (also known as laie beach park) from anytime from 9am to 12pm! πŸ’™ we always appreciate all of your help so much & we love getting to connect with you, too, as we clean up the beach! let’s come work together to #savetheocean! hope to see you there! πŸ€— #repost from one of our cleanup coordinators and one ocean conservation leads, @kennaaloha ・・・
we view ourselves as the most dominant and intelligent species on earth, yet we’re virtually the only species that blindly destroys and exploits our own environment; the one that we so heavily rely on for survival. that considered, we don’t seem that intelligent to me... πŸ€”πŸ˜ we’re supposed to be ✨caretakers✨ of the planet when, in reality, we’re the ones who “take care” the least πŸ’” so until we actually leave the planet alone/take only what we need instead of s*****g it dry of all of its vital resources, we must remain humble and mindful in our position of power. “ruling the world” doesn’t mean we can do whatever we want. it means that we have a much bigger role and responsibility on this planet. we are a part of creation. a part. therefore, we must see beyond our own livelihoods so we can then see the value of others’ livelihoods as well. after all, we’re all connected. 🌎🌍🌏

war on waste // a global issue facing our oceans with current estimates suggesting over 220 million tons of plastic are produced each year (unesco 2018) ultimately finding their way into the environment through leaching, break-down and improper discard. discussions around plastic recycling have lead to cause for concern as countries such as china that previously purchased overseas “mixed plastic” for disposal have recently banned the import of certain foreign wastes resulting in local facilities stock-piling recyclable materials with no where to go (ministry for the environment, nz 2018). at the 2018 our ocean conference being held in bali (29 & 30 oct), areas of action in discussions trend towards solving the issue at production by improving efficiency @ourocean2018. alternative solutions such as compostable plastics or plant-based single use items (whilst significantly better than plastic) continue to contribute to the waste problem and feed into the consumer mentality. it’s important to remember when we buy a product, we also buy any waste associated with the product. what are some ideas you have to reduce our waste at the source? or how do you currently do your part for the planet? 🌏

Have you heard?? the eu passed a ban on single-use plastic!! πŸ’™πŸŽ‰#repost @oneoceandiving ・・・
this is such great news! the european parliament is taking a huge, amazing step towards a more plastic-free world by completely phasing out single-use plastic! πŸŽ‰πŸŒŽ huge thank you to everyone who helped this ban go through ❀️ we’re looking forward to more areas in the world following this example by making more effective steps like these! read more about this great news below! caption and photo by @plasticfreemermaid 🧜🏼‍♀️
・・・
the european parliament has voted for a complete ban on a range of single-use plastics! congrats to the people who worked so h*****n getting this legislation into the conversation & over the line!
the banned items such as cutlery and cotton buds were chosen because there are accessible alternatives.
a ban on the private use of disposable plastic products like straws, plastic plates, plastic utensils, plastic coffee stirrers, cotton swabs with plastic stems and plastic balloon holders from 2021.
producers of certain products will be required to help cover the costs of clean-up and waste treatment, including: tobacco products with filters (such as cigarette butts), plastic bags, candy wrappers, potato chip packages and wet wipes.

the consumption of several other items, for which no alternative exists, will have to be reduced by member states by least 25% by 2025. this includes single-use burger boxes, sandwich boxes or food containers for fruits, vegetables, desserts or ice creams. member states will draft national plans to encourage the use of products suitable for multiple use, as well as re-using and recycling.

each member state will collect 90 % of plastic bottles used in their country by 2025.

cigarette makers will have to reduce the plastic by 50% by 2025 and 80% by 2030. at least 50% of lost or abandoned fishing gear containing plastic is to be collected per year, with a recycling target of at least 15% by 2025. menstrual pads, wet wipes and balloons will be required to add a label indicating how the product should be disposed.

pretty epic policy cracking down on my arch nemesis. hope you had a good day too. πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈ#breakfreefromplastic

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ canadian friends, if you have the chance, go see rob stewart’s newly released documentary, sharkwater extinction! his previous films were incredibly inspiring and paved a path for shark conservation! 🦈 (depending on how well this film does in canada, we in the u.s. and other countries around the world could have the chance to see it, too❀️) rob left behind a beautiful legacy. please send all of your love and support to @teamsharkwater and go watch sharkwater extinction this weekend if you’re in the area! #savesharks #savetheocean say no to #sharkfinning and #sharkfishing #savetheplanet #oceanconservation #sharkwater ・・・
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“stewart’s third film is also his best.” #sharkwaterextinction opens today and is already setting records!!!! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ pack the theaters in honor of rob, our oceans and our own humanity. let’s stand up for all that is beautiful on this planet!
