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

As reported by the United Nations, at least 800 species worldwide are being affected by marine debris from which 80 percent of that litter is plastic. Scientists estimate that in some places there is more plastic than plankton and that plastic is being eaten by marine life, it is affecting all marine species, from the smallest one, plankton and the biggest ones. Marine animals just like fish, seabirds, sea turtles, and marine mammals can either go through a plastic entanglement or ingest plastic debris, this can cause several effects, suffocation, starvation, and drowning. Following the food chain, it ends up affecting ourselves.   #stopollution    #globalwarming    #globalwarmingisreal    #climatechange    #climatechangeisreal    #amazongire    #contamination    #stoppolluting    #climatesavemovement    #plasticfreecommunities    #notrash    #dontwanttodiein2050

On one hot day in one classroom in one college   @lauragale  , an photographer and teacher from Moseley, collected a selection of the many single use plastic bottles discarded by students in the class bin. She turned them into something beautiful and provocative. Imagine if Laura added the botttles from other classrooms and other schools on other days. The rows and columns would grow exponentially illustrating the sheer quantity of single use bottles we consume in this country and across the world. Thankfully Laura's college now have water fountains and generally more and more businesses are registering as refill stations. So there is little excuse for single use plastic water bottles.

  #SundaySwap   time!⠀ ⠀ If you prefer your drinking water filtered then this unassuming little stick of activated charcoal is all you need. Goodbye to plastic water filter jugs which need to have the cartridge filters replaced regularly (also made of plastic) and hello any old jug or drinking bottle that you have.⠀ ⠀ The charcoal sticks can be refreshed after a few months by boiling in water and should last up to 6 months before needing to be replaced.⠀ ⠀ This one came from   @apothecary27  ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ ⠀   #sustainableswaps   #=  #PlasticFreeProducts     #PlasticFreeLiving     #GoPlasticFree     #ChooseToReuse     #PlasticSucks     #SingleUseSucks     #BeatPlasticPollution     #NoPlastic     #StopPlasticPollution     #NoExcuseForSingleUse     #EveryPieceCounts     #PassOnPlastic     #PlasticFreeCommunities     #LoveHaslemereHateWaste

It’s Shiney Sunday and even though it’s windy and wet - this is a week I will never forget 😊 Purbeck has 3 new Plastic Free Business Champions - making the grand total of almost 20 overall ❤️ This morning was spent proudly heading to Dorchester through the windy, wet weather to deliver Wareham’s newest Plastic Free Certificate to this beautiful team who have worked hard to help our environment since opening this year keeping empty tummies happy whilst touring Dorset’s many fayres and events this summer, serving delicious cheese 🧀 toasties, homemade special ‘slaw and lush plastic free coffee ☕️ 😊. I’m extra proud as I met lovely Jen when I first started living in my campervan to cover our NHS hospital staff shortages over 6 years ago. I’ve never forgotten her kindness ❤️ They serve their coffee in bamboo cups with compostable lids, use recycled napkins, wooden cutlery, wooden stirrers, cardboard containers and cup holders with a beautiful personalised “Happy Stamp” on them and choose to use Full Circle coffee served in paper bags. Truly Good Mood Food all round ❤️ Woo hoo for Wareham as this gives the Community the 5 Business Champions needed to become a Plastic-Free Community - but there’s already more up my Plastic-Free sleeve 💪 So well done Jen and Dan for all your hard work for the environment and thanks for the lovely fresh coffee which I’m looking forward to giving to my nursing colleagues on night shift later ❤️.
