Morning everyone . Just wanted to share with you guys my new reusable cup that I got last week as part of my #zerowaste and #sustainableliving goals I brought it to Dublin vegfest yesterday and was chatting away with a friend while waiting for my Starbucks coffee when I turn around and see a girl with M Y americano in M Y bamboo cup looking very pleased with herself about to head for the hills
Noooooooo !!!! No one steals my new bamboo cup that I have fallen inlove with So people, let that be a lesson to you all. Don't let your reusable cups out of your sight But fear not, it is rescued now and safe in my hands! #rescuecup Happy Sunday xx
A hermit crab grows too large for its shell, searches for a replacement by simply finding a vacant home with the shells of deceased snails. Without any need of harming others, they find a shell inspect it and even try it on... all of which a great reason to stop collecting 🦀 ..you're buying up the real estate when you take the shells from the sea!🙄
Entanglement, ingestion and habitat disruption all result from plastic ending up in the spaces where animals live. In our oceans alone, plastic debris outweighs zooplankton by a ratio of 36-to-1. #choosetoreuse#saveourseas#water3

While we were in #Samos a #Turtle washed up deceased, we were asked not to put pictures up of the turtle to respect the animal. The turtle was measured and dissected to try and determine the cause of death... It's gastro-intestinal tract was full of plastic, meaning although it was full, it probably starved to death. The rubbish shown here was from a beach clean up we undertook, they go out every day and collect rubbish from the beaches, meaning this stuff had probably washed up during the day. #Plastics are such a huge problem that our oceans face. They break down and form #Microplastics which are able to pass through the food chain, chances are, we contain microplastics too (if you eat fish). Please #Recycle as much plastic as you can and don't get those plastic straws on a night out. #Archipelagos#EssexFieldCourse#SaveOurOceans
Wild Mob Youth Ambassadors auditing marine debris on Brampton Island. They've sorted nearly 1000 plastic items. Plus 30 metres of rope. And 2 light bulbs. And that's just one of FORTY bags!!! Are you ready to change the tide? Watch this space to see what they're doing next!
