#litterpick


Сейчас меня опять обвинят в паникерстве и в том, что я пугаю людей, а надо бы помалкивать и молча подавать «хороший пример». Но я как тот попугай «и здесь молчать не буду» Все пластиковые пакеты в мире, сложенные вместе, могут упаковать Землю 4200 раз. Не один раз, не два раза, а четыре тысячи двести раз. Страшно? Мне страшно. И лично я считаю страх двигателем прогресса с доисторических времен. Страшно, что тигр сожрет - стали прятаться в пещерах. Страшно умереть голодной смертью – окультурили растения, одомашнили животных. Страшно, что враг нападет, - научились строить крепости. Страшно умереть от чумы – придумали вакцину. Почему бы не осознать, что сейчас появилась новая угроза для всех нас сразу. Не важно, русский ты, китаец, американец, пластик рядом. Начни уже бояться пластикового пакета. Не надо его покупать и тем более брать бесплатно. Это самый минимум и это под силу каждому. P.S. Я не буду искать источник цифр, я им верю, потому что верю свои глазам. Если кто-то не верит, посчитайте на калькуляторе. Число производимых пакетов в год на площадь пакета

Thank you to everyone that made it to Sundays beach sweep down on Tate Hill. We were worried the weather might jeopardise the turn out but we had 30 people show up in the rain and take part! Brilliant to see some familiar faces as well as new volunteers taking to the beach with litter pickers. Usual finds for Tate Hill, a lot of small pieces of plastic and polystyrene as well as fishing rope and line in amongst the seaweed and rocks. Jo and Elaine headed up to St. Mary's and cleared a lot of rubbish ready to blow over the cliff edge towards the sea. Big thanks to Whitby Soul Seekers for holding a talk and story telling after the sweep; Sally, Brian, Giselle and Sam did an amazing job.   @w  .hamond_tearooms kindly hosted the social event and donated drinks to all volunteers, the perfect setting at the bottom of the 199 steps to talk ghost and ghouls of whitby. Next sweep takes place at Tate Hill beach again on November 6th at 3pm to clear up any debris left over from bonfire night. Here's hoping everyone enjoys the beach but takes their rubbish home with them this year! 🌊♻️ . . .   #whitbybeachsweep     #whitby     #beachclean     #2minutebeachclean     #saveourseas     #plasticocean     #plasticpollution     #pickitup     #litterpick     #marinedebris     #tatehillbeach     #eastwhitby     #whitbybeach     #whitbyabbey     #dontdropit     #coastalliving     #nature     #lovewhereyoulive     #comminity     #ocean     #northsea     #environmentalist     #joinus     #surfersagainstsewage

This beach on the River Forth next to a gas terminal is one not often visited on foot due to the time it takes to get there. Kayaking in to check it out and clean up was the easiest option. Plastics littered all along this small stretch of beach. The fire extinguisher is probably from the gas terminal. It amazes me what people throw away, but stuff like this never goes away!   #letsdothis     #doyourbit     #litterpick     #litter     #pickupyourtrash     #plasticfree     #plasticpollution     #cleanthebeach     @mcs  _uk   #keepscotlandbeautiful     #riverforth     #kayaking

Join an amazing   @surfersagainstsewage   Autumn river bank clean this Saturday. The event is on Facebook but you can also DM   @sustainable  _chill for details. There’ll be an audit, collecting data for the UN’s Decade of Ocean Science. Citizen science is an important tool to influence policy change. We hope to show deposit return schemes are needed, greater producer responsibility and a ban on unnecessary single use plastics.   #cleanup     #autumn     #litterpick     #plasticfreecommunities     #autumncleanup     #sunmittosea     #river     #beachclean     #saynotosingleuse     #wedemandchange     #climatechange     #surfersagainstsewage     #sas     #sascampaigns     #communitycleanup     #communityaction     #citizenscience     #dodisrupt     #oceanscience     #carefortheocean     #inlandclean     #marinelife     #lovetheocean     #noplanetb

One of last week's finds - this bottle has the best preserved applied painted lettering I have found on a 7up bottle. The bottle itself was made by the Irish Glass Bottle Company of Dublin, before being sent off to Kiely's Bottling Company LTD in Tipperary (see 4th photo for a newspaper advert from 1962). Based on the date of the dump, logo and slogans featured, I would date this bottle to between 1953 and 1968. On the whole, amber 7up bottles seem to be fairly scarce, but I assume they were more commonplace in Ireland as I have never found a green one! 7up was introduced to the American market as a caramel coloured soda in 1929, with the rather catchy name of 'Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda'. This became '7 Up Lithiated Lemon Soda', before eventually being shortened to just '7up' by 1936. The significance of the number 7 is the subject of some dispute, with the most logical explanation being that 7 was the original number of ingredients. The 'up' part of the name may refer to the uplifting effects of one of its ingredients, compound lithium citrate, a mood-stabilizing drug. The inclusion of a drug made 7up (as with many soft drinks of the late 19th and early 20th centuries) a medicine, and it was touted specifically as a hangover cure. In 1948 it became illegal to add lithium citrate to drinks in the US, so 7up changed its formula. Over the following decades it was advertised as a drink for the whole family, with mothers being advised to mix it in equal parts with their baby's usual milk!   #beachcomber     #beachcombing     #beachcombingfinds     #beachfinds     #beachtreasures     #bottledump     #bottledigging     #bottledigger     #historyonthebeach     #vintage     #oldbottle     #oldbottles     #oldsodabottles     #vintagebottle     #socialhistory     #foundonthebeach     #foundatthebeach     #2minutebeachclean     #litterpick     #vintage7up     #7up     #sevenup     #jayforjohanna     #LandfillIsNotTheEndOfTheStory

Amazing effort from everyone at the Plastic Patrol X   @heronandhush   Clean Up!⁣ ⁣ Despite the soggy weather, the team took to the water armed with canoes 🛶, kayaks, paddleboards 🏄🏽‍♂️, buckets and litter pickers to clean up any rubbish that they found. ⁣ ⁣ Everything collected was recorded in the   @plastic  _patrol app - including the amounts, types, brands and locations, adding to the global database. With evidence we can begin to develop the solutions so urgently needed. Big thank you to everyone involved!⁣ ⁣   #PLASTICPATROLARMY
