If you like food, it's time you made friends with bees and went organic! ⠀
the use of chemicals and pesticides in our food is killing our bees in numbers that haven't been seen before. ⠀
it's pollinator week and last night i saw the pollinators movie by demand films https://au.demand.film/the-pollinators/ ⠀
whilst it did have some inspiring parts and was hugely informative and well done, it was also sad and confronting.⠀
the movie, set in the us, shows bees and hives being put on the back of trucks and carted all around the country to pollinate crops and orchards as there aren't enough native bees in the area to do the job. they are literally moved from one crop to another, being put to work. this practice does happen in australia too - just not on the same scale. ⠀
the really sad side is the number of bees dying and under stress. bees are dying in clumps that could literally be shoveled up due to the use of pesticides. the worst offender being neonicotinoids which are banned in the eu but definitely used here.⠀
other factors putting our poor bees under stress include the veroa mite and disease. ⠀
if you want to bee friendly:⠀
⠀ # go organic - have i mentioned that? ⠀
⠀ # keep a bee garden and planet bee friendly plants in your garden - head over to the link in our bio for some of these (especially the beneficial bug kit)⠀
⠀ # don't use weedkillers⠀
⠀ # in you buy honey, make it organic, local and raw⠀
⠀ # if you have a lawn, take the weekend off and let the dandelions grow⠀
⠀ # leave some water out for our bees to drink during warm days. a little basin with some rocks or a floating cork so the bees won't drown is perfect⠀
⠀ # join a local beekeeper group and maybe think about keeping an urban hive.⠀

when i decided to not looking a study just from school, that's when i started meeting lots of people with all the characters. some are just for exclamation, too serious, too demanding and bla bla blllaaaaaaa......

i love whatever has happened to this day
first project from our team

let’s #saveouroceans friends. more than 8 million pounds of plastic ends up in the ocean each year. if things done change, there will be more plastic than fish by 2050. 😭 want to help? here are a few ways: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
① pick up trash! whether you’re inland or on the coast, pick up any trash/plastic you see. chances are, it’ll end up in the ocean if you don’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
② reduce your plastic usage. switch to re-usable products. it makes a huge difference! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
③ raise awareness! tell your friends and family that you’re passionate about ocean conservation. share your love for the fishies 🐠
④ support companies that are dedicated to raising awareness and cleaning the oceans! my personal favorite is @4ocean. their bracelets not only support ocean clean up, but they are also adorable and made from recycled products! 😍

Suuposed to be spring walk
looks like a nice sunny spring walk. feels like winter. melbourne weather has been more crazy than usual.
we are still in winter weather 7 degrees to 14 degrees with the odd day or 2 of 30+ degrees! not the usual cycles.
didn't think that global warming would make melbourne colder!
how has global warming affected your city?
our earth our home where else are we going to live? 💚🌎💚
Love what you do and inspire others around you 💚🌊🌈

How amazing is nature? 🌊💦🐬⛰ as part of our camp we try to snorkel, swim and free dive freely with dolphins in the open ocean. we keep our safe distance and respect their space in their own environment, their home. it breaks our heart to witness large boats that allow 20+ people to jump into the water splashing and screaming trying to see dolphins, scaring and harassing them, while the boats trap them in so that they cannot escape. #respectsealife #protectouroceans⠀
our other big concern is plastic! help us support bill40 to ban single-use, petroleum-based plastics from oahu! the more people know about the process the better! and of course the more people ‘show up’ in support and submit their testimony the better the chances are! spread the word, invite your friends and family to do the same.⠀

“as we started on the precipice of irreversible climate change, i want to feel confident that i am doing everything i can as an individual and as a brand to minimise the impact humans have on the environment, says kevin murphy @kevinmurphyhair#owp#saveouroceans#choiceswemake#lovekm
Posted @withrepost • @oceanic.elizabeth eating a credit card a week?
we know that plastic is devastating wildlife and is invading our oceans, but until now we have known very little about the impact the broken plastic system is having on people. in this first-ever global study, we’ve discovered that on average, people could actually be ingesting approximately 5 grams of microplastics every week - that’s the equivalent of a credit card per week.
the university of newcastle, australia finds we’re consuming about 2000 tiny pieces of plastic every week. that’s approximately 100,000 tiny pieces of plastic every year. findings reveal that microplastics are contaminating the air, food and water consumed by humans. the single largest source of plastic ingestion globally is through water, both bottled and tap all over the world. of the consumables studied, the highest recorded plastic levels were found in shellfish, beer and salt.
the long-term effects of plastic ingestion on the human body are not yetwell documented. some types of plastic carry chemicals and additives with potential effects on human health. studies are underway to better understand the effects of plastic on our health.
did you know? 👀plastic and microplastics are everywhere now. they unfortunately don't disappear. because plastic lasts for so long, every single piece of plastic ever made still exists, and will continue existing for at least 500 years. share your thoughts by leaving a comment and share with your friends🤓click the link in my bio to learn more about the study and sign the petition✊🏽 #signofchange#itscooltocare@wwf

if the loss of marine species from overfishing and climate change continues at the current rate, all commercial fish and seafood species could 𝒄𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒂𝒑𝒔𝒆 by 2048, scientists said. 𝐔𝐍𝐋𝐄𝐒𝐒 𝐇𝐔𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐒 𝐀𝐂𝐓 now, seafood may disappear quicker then we think. now your probably thinking, “but how is it that our oceans could be fishless?” overfishing is the leading cause, but the one following right after is pollution, as well as acidification and global warming caused by climate change are killing the ocean. ༄🐢༄
✯ 2.7 trillion animals are dragged out of the ocean every year
✯ 75% of the world’s fisheries have been exploited or depleted
✯ as many as 40% of fish caught globally are discarded (dead)
✯ animal agriculture is the leading cause of ocean dead zones and water pollution
✯ up to 50 million sharks are killed in fishing lines and nets every year
✯ global bycatch may amount 40% of the world’s catching totaling 63 billion pounds each year, injuring and killing millions of whales, dolphins, seals, sea turtles and sharks every year ☹
1) make the switch to plant-based fish/seafood products not only will this be the best option for our oceans, but you can also avoid the many heavy metals in fish and seafood such as, mercury, nano plastics, and more.
2) choose vegan skincare and makeup products to make sure you don’t have ingredients from marine animals like squalene - a substance extracted from the lovers of sharks, which is then added to eye makeup and lipsticks.
3) stop taking fish oil and omega-3 and 6 and choose plant-based alternatives like chia seeds, flaxseed, flaxseed oil, and canola oil. additional sources include, h**p seed oil, walnuts, soybeans, and leafy green vegetables.
we can’t take as much as we like, we are overfishing our oceans! we are causing a decline in marine life. we have to do something now! what actions will you take to help the ocean?
Malaysia we are blessed to have beautiful islands. stunning underwater marine life. impressive jungle mountains and v****n rainforests. natural flora and fauna. we would love to be able to snorkel and dive in clear blue waters, and walk along pristine white sandy beaches, like we did here in redang. but what hides beneath is we still managed to clean up at ricd 2019 (redang island conservation day) a huge amount of plastic trash.
total debris: 524.86kg*
total plastic: 246.39kg
plastic bottles: 4,645
Exploring what the islands have to offer these last few days has been all time 🤙🏼🌴

¿cómo vamos a proteger aquello que no conocemos?
aproximadamente 6.4 millones de toneladas de basura son depositadas en océanos cada año. el 60% de la basura en playas es plástico. el 90% de la basura flotando en el océano es plástico.
la basura marina mata anualmente cerca de 1 millón de aves marinas y 100 mil animales marinos. mundialmente, al menos 267 especies son afectadas por la basura en el océano.
tan pronto como una tortuga marina ingiere un pedazo de plástico, su probabilidad de morir aumenta en un 20%. cada pieza adicional de plástico ingerido aumenta la probabilidad de muerte, tanto que después de que ingiere la decimocuarta pieza de plástico, una tortuga tiene un 52% de probabilidades de morir. “todo lo que termina en el océano estuvo en las manos de alguna persona en algún momento”
Let's address the elephant in the room, shall we? did we reach our goal of removing one million pounds of garbage in one year? well, no. but we did remove nearly 520,000 pounds of garbage in one year. that's 520,000 pounds of debris that was trying to make its way to the ocean. but our crew along with 2,686 badass volunteers stopped it in its tracks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
now, this is also just an update. the year's not over! we cannot thank you enough for sticking with us, cheering us on, working alongside us, or recently following us! your support is everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you dig it, share it! let's let others know we're out here doing the darn thing. #keepitclean#comingtoarivernearyou
En alguno de esos spots hermosos de las islas #galapagos 🐢
. ¿nos creerían si les decimos que incluso en lugares así de remotos, a los que solo llegas por agua⛵️y en horarios específicos ⏱, también encontramos micro plasticos 😫? .
es tan simple como decirles, “todo termina en el océano”.
los plásticos no solo aparecen en la costa o en el mar, cuando botas la basura en la playa.
es más, la mayoría de la basura que encontramos viene de “arriba” 🏙⛰.
es decir que si no vives cerca de la costa y consumes objetos de plástico, cuando lo botas a la calle o incluso en un basurero, luego por el viento 🌬 o por las lluvias🌧 llega a un río que desemboca en el oceano, y después esa basura es arrastrada por corrientes a lugares donde lo primero que ves antes de una pisada humana son micro plásticos camuflados en la arena.
por lo tanto sea donde sea que estés, no se trata solo de si botas o no dentro del tacho de basura, se trata de reducir tu consumo. de ser más responsable con las cosas que compras, saber de que están hechas, de donde vienen, y donde terminarían. 🌊
