Real shame. was really disappointed to find this discarded 6ft net on the beach. only to find it had killed 4 dogfish. 1 male and 3 females. really sad as sharks aren't doing well in general. that warning from blue plant 2 really hit home. #southwold#dogfish#sharks#blueplanet2#oceancleanup
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a cameraman for #blueplanet2 ? gavin thurston circled the globe many times for the series, often to climb in alucia’s submarines, where he logged more than 500 hours filming in the deep ocean. find out what that was like in our latest #ourblueplanet digital collaboration with @bbcearth profiling the scientists and artists that made the series possible. did i mention he is also a really wonderful guy? because he’s that, too. and can you spot my brief cameo! i’m looking very serious and understated, as usual 🐋🌊💙 bit.ly/gavin-thurston @thegavinthurston@oceanx@bbcamerica
Come down to the tate britain @queerfayre on saturday 1-6pm and pick up some reusable produce bags! you'll never need to put your fruit, veg and unpackaged food in single-use plastic bags ever again!
these bags are handmade from unwanted net curtains. they are lightweight, double-seamed for extra strength and machine washable. 🥐
the curtains are made of synthetic material so they will release some microfibers when you wash them, but unlike cotton bags, no resources such as water have been used up to grow the material and no carbon has been emitted to transfer it across the world. so pros and cons! 🤷
the drawstring is ribbon because the smoothness stops the bags fraying, and these come from left-over craft supplies.
1 bag for £4, 2 for £7 or pay what you can afford.

Sparked by the ‘blue planet effect’ and a huge community drive by the #sumofus petition, mcdonald’s in the uk has announced that they will switch to biodegradable paper straws by next year, with chains of other countries committed to phasing out the plastic straw. mcdonald’s uses 1.8m straws a day in the uk and though there are many other things to switch out (the paper cups are non biodegradable and lids still plastic), this is a first step where consumer demands have influenced a large corporation to rethink their operations and phase out their plastic consumption.
as paper straws are more expensive, one would imagine that chains will only hand out straws when requested to reduce the amount of paper produced too, but that is to be seen next year. . . . #beatplasticpollution#refusesingleuse#blueplanet#blueplanet2#plasticpollution#singleuseplastic#mcdonalds#mcdonaldsuk#refusethestraw#paperstraw#dontsuck#strawssuck
When you're at a #seascot2018 conference, excited that sarah conner from #blueplanet2 is giving a talk, then realise you know her from releasing a pilot whale at a mass stranding together in 2015..... pretty cool. :)
