Day 18 brought to you by my beach friend,   @ittybittyplasticcommittee   . . .   #Repost     @ittybittyplasticcommittee   with   @get  _repost ・・・ ✖️▪️Tips▪️✖️ 〰Plastic cigar tips. I can't remember exactly when I decided to start saving these. Let's say this is from 2 months of beach/forest cleanups. After noticing more and more, I thought it would be a good idea to show others this problem is growing.~ 〰If you must smoke cigars please choose a brand that doesn't have plastic tips. These are now on our planet forever. A moment on your lips, infinity on our Earth.~ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖ ➖   #tipoftheiceberg     #plasticbites     #justthetip     #stopsmoking     #tipoftheday     #refusesingleuse     #plasticpollution     #fridayflatlay     #cigarsofinstagram     #savethewildlife     #litterbugs     #pickitup     #trashfreeearth     #earthdayeveryday     #nofilters     #flatlay     #cigartips     #flatlayfriday     #beachcleaning     #naturegram     #greetingsfromaway     #noplanetb     #plasticfree     #imaketrashpretty     #artivism     #artwithheart     #flatlays

. The devil inside The devil inside...🎵 . My hands and pockets filled up on an impromptu wander so I was grateful to a crab for the   #finditfillit   for some microplastics and a nurdle! . Also found what I thought was a plaster but turns out it's a pain relief patch. (Butec patches contain the active ingredient buprenorphine which belongs to a group of medicines called strong analgesics. Butec patches act through the skin. After application, buprenorphine passes through the skin into the blood. Each patch lasts for seven days.) Hopefully there was no meds left when it went into the water! . .   #singingtogulls     #spidercrab     #2minutebeachclean     #bethechange     #protectwhatyoulove     #plasticpollutes     #cleanoceans     #beachcombing     #beachclean     #nurdles     #ghostgear     #fishinglitter     #marineconservation     #oceanplastic     #plasticpollution     #drowninginplastic     #pembrokeshire     #nothingisordinary     #flotsamandjetsam     #dayattheseaside     #STOPtheplastictide     #take3forthesea     #onthebeach     #SAVETHESEA     #plasticbites     #underwaterworld     #beachplastic     #whereiwander   🎵   #devilinside     @inxs

Let’s talk floss. 🦷 We found these single-use plastic   #flosspicks   evvvvvvverywhere! From the shoreline to the parking lot, and everywhere in between, it seems like people are cleaning their teeth wherever they please. We’re all for oral hygiene, but definitely not about these unnecessary single-use plastic habits. These plastic picks are harmful to wildlife and linger in the environment for hundreds of years. 👉🏼Swipe left to see   #biodegradablefloss   and   #plasticfreefloss   alternatives. 🙌🏼🦷

. Honey I'm sorry, but I've got my sea legs again. If I stand on dry land for a minute, I feel sick and then I have to start moving again...🎵 . Legless + plastered! . A plastic cocktail picked fresh off the strandline this morning just as the tide turned. Not much to leave with but "better out than in" and better in the bin than left for the seabirds and fish to put up with. Also a perfect way to toast earth defender   @kittiekipper   a very Happy Birthday! . 🌊🍹☠ .   #singingtogulls     #cocktailhour     #birthdayqueen     #legless     #finditfillit     #2minutebeachclean     #bethechange     #protectwhatyoulove     #plasticpollutes     #cleanoceans     #beachcombing     #beachclean     #marineconservation     #oceanplastic     #plasticpollution     #drowninginplastic     #pembrokeshire     #nothingisordinary     #flotsamandjetsam     #dayattheseaside     #STOPtheplastictide     #take3forthesea     #onthebeach     #SAVETHESEA     #plasticbites     #underwaterworld     #beachplastic     #whereiwander   🎵   #sealegs     @frankturner

People have asked us whether we used sunscreen during our trek, and if so, what kind. While we usually preferred to wear hats and long-sleeve shirts to cover up, being in the Florida sun everyday for four months meant that we still had to wear sunscreen most of the time. We found a few brands that were   #reefsafe  , which means they they do not contain oxybenzone and octinoxate, UV blocking chemicals that can cause coral bleaching. Some of these reef safe brands include   @stream2sea  ,   @sunbum   and   @surfaceproducts  . However, we favored   @rawelementsusa   as our sunscreen of choice, due to their plastic-free packaging options. These tins were durable and kept us burn-safe and ocean friendly during our trek. 💯👊🏝☀️   #saynotoplastic

Got a light? We hope it’s a reusable one! 🔥 Disposable plastic lighters made their debut in the 1970s to match our disposable lifestyles. Now they are sold by the thousands, and ultimately discarded carelessly because they cannot be refilled once their fuel is used. These   #plasticlighters   end up in our waterways, and are mistaken for food by seabirds and marine mammals, causing them to choke or blocking their digestive tracts. According to the   @oceanconservancy   2016 coastal cleanup, the number of plastic lighters collected worldwide would have stood 10x higher than the Eiffel Tower in Paris (324 meters). Let’s ditch the plastic, and go back to using more earth-friendly alternatives like   @originalzippo   lighters, or matchbooks.   #fortheplanet

Hospitality Around Florida: New blog post up! Link in bio ☝️✨✨ It is so humbling and overwhelming to receive help from complete strangers who believe in making the world a better place. Throughout our   #PlasTrek  , we encountered many people who went out of their way to aid in our mission, whether is was simply offering us sandwiches and water on the beach, offering us a ride, or even welcoming us into their homes for days on end. We honestly cannot thank these amazing souls enough for their generosity. When you’re struggling day after day with where to buy food, where to sleep, and where to shower, every little act of kindness helps. We are also entirely grateful for our supportive friends and family who did so much to help us achieve our goal. We honestly couldn’t have done it without you. 💞   #teamworkmakesthedreamwork

Microplastics. This section of Melbourne Beach contained a higher concentration of   #microplastics   than anywhere else we saw along the Florida coast. While it was overwhelming and disheartening to see tiny shards of plastic by the thousands, we had to concentrate our resources on picking up larger pieces of plastic that we knew would eventually break down into microplastics over time. Plus, these are only the microplastics we can see with our eyes - studies have shown that the ocean is filled with microscopic plastic from clothing fibers, cosmetics, car/truck tires, sewage treatment plants, manufacturing, the fishing industry, packaging and shipping, plastic bags, plastic bottles, etc. Not only are these microplastics found in our waterways, but they have been found in our drinking water, on top of Everest, and in raindrops. Recycling doesn’t work. Plastic never “goes away”. We need to stop it at the source. 🚫  #saynotoplastic
