Planet or Plastic?
#planetorplastic

Today, for me, was a great day!
🌸
It all started off at Carter Road where I, along with so many others participated in a beach clean-up activity. We collected plastic waste in biodegradable bags, and tried hard to make a difference to the society that we live in. And in the process, I got to meet so many other great people and interact with them!
🌸
The one thing that everyone agreed on, was the need to educate and make people aware of the impact of environmental pollution.
🌸
We are all a part of nature - threads in the web of life, where everything and everyone is connected. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Every time we thoughtlessly do something to damage the environment, we end up harming ourselves. But we CAN make a difference. And it is for us to decide what kind of difference do we want to make. So why not take small steps to help save our Mother Earth!
🌸
-  Turn off lights and fans when not in use
-  Dispose of your waste properly – try composting if possible
-  Use water judiciously – fix leaking taps
-  Go for a car pool wherever possible
-  Recycle
-  Carry your own shopping bag – say no to plastic bags
-  Plant a tree
-  And educate…
🌸
Our Earth is one of its kind – a truly magical place to live in. Do we really want to destroy our home?

What a great start to the Sunday morning. Cleaning up the beach area at carter road and contributing minimally to reduce the plastic waste.
The time to blame one another is gone and now is the time to act. Let’s stop the use of plastic and help clean anything and everything you can to make this world a better place. After all, small steps lead to a bigger result.
Thank you @wanderingkamya and @manas.karnik for organising this wonderful drive and looking forward for more such drives.
Thank you to @haram_khor_ for giving a shot to speak up in front of the camera. Also, it was your story through which I came to know about this event.
Thank you to @the_canon_eye for some good tips and motivation towards developing my social presence.
Thank you to one and all who got up early in the morning to make an effort to clean up this city. Your efforts helped Mumbai get rid of at least a 100 bags worth of plastic waste. Not a bad start towards a bigger number.
Special shout out to all those who gave in their interviews. Please tag in the people I missed.

Nepal is home to some of the friendliest people on the planet- and the most toxic air.

The country was just ranked last for air-quality in the 2018 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) by Yale + Columbia.

The government has been under fire for not doing much- but now in Kathmandu, vehicles over 20 years old are banned.

I really struggle visiting places with bad air quality- I am literally distraught to think of people facing this everyday in their life (+ they are still SO kind + humble).

Are you sensitive to bad air pollution? I need some tips!

Photo and words by @JustinHofman (Justin Hofman) | This is a photo that I wish didn’t exist, but now that it does, I want everyone to see it. What started as an opportunity to photograph a cute little sea horse turned into one of frustration and sadness as the incoming tide brought with it countless pieces of trash and sewage. This sea horse drifts with the trash day in and day out as it rides the currents that flow along the Indonesian archipelago. This photo serves as an allegory for the current and future state of our oceans. What sort of future are we creating? How can your actions shape our planet?

This plastic was wrapped around my spinach from the fruit market. Quite ironic to have a label of 'Bare Essentials' on single use plastic. #planetorplastic #singleuseplastic #plasticoceans

@Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by @randyolson. Yes, I’m still polluting @natgeo’s feed with pictures to draw attention to the global plastic waste crisis. Manila’s Pasig River dumps into Manila Bay, and beach goers enjoy a solid floor of plastic waste to lounge upon. I live in a U.S. town with an ocean beach, and I wonder if and when I will begin to encounter this much plastic on my own beach walks. We all share the same oceans. Mussels and other shellfish increasingly eat microplastics, and these mussels share the oceans with all of us as well. The final photo in this gallery is from Dhaka where people are living in similar conditions on their waterways. Beach cleanups in these areas don’t work… the trash is back the next week. #PlanetorPlastic

@Regrann from @natgeo - By @randyolson | Life on layers of single-use plastic in the Chinatown slum in Manila is exacerbated by the sachets of shampoo and other toiletries containing a single dose. The sachets are not recyclable. The right side of the first photo is actually a stream, but you can’t see the water because it’s covered in plastic and other trash. The second photo gives a better view of the same stream. The third and fourth photographs are from the plastic recycling area of the Baseco slums in Manila. All of these photos are on the Pasig River watershed that feeds into Manila Bay. This mismanaged waste, cited in many reports, is why the Pasig is one of the top three rivers on the planet moving plastic into the ocean. #PlanetorPlastic

Hand soap in a plastic pump?
Nope.
Shampoo & Conditioner in two plastic bottles?
Nope
Facial wash in a plastic squeeze bottle?
Nope.
Body wash in a plastic bottle?
Nope.
5 large plastic bottles replaced every 2 months are now replaced with my beautiful bars. No waste. All natural. Smell amazing. Can I also say that my hair and skin have never (never) felt so clean and healthy!
Feeling good inside and out about making better choices when it comes to plastic pollution.
Next steps are to replace plastics in my makeup routine!

Today I was disgusted by what I saw. I was in Starbucks waiting to get my Shake and then I see the Barista making a drink for a lady . I observe him and I see that he accidentally dropped some milk ( literally a drop) on a lid he was putting on the lady’s coffee and then he just threw it away and put another one, he literally threw away a perfectly CLEAN lid all because a drop of milk fell on it. I’m mad because I bet his ignorant self doesn’t know what’s going on in the world regarding extreme plastic usage, so as you can imagine, I WAS SHOOK/TRIGGERED. And No I didn’t use a lid or straw for my drink, straight from the cup :). #science #geology #astronomy #seismology #physics #sciences #milkyway #stars #love #equality #peace #happiness #star #planet #astrophysics #scientist #flatearth #earth #saturn #exoplanets #mars #venus #ecology #naturalsciences #earth #saveearth #environment #climatechange #planetorplastic #loveearth

Here is my favorite DIY ‘EYE-SERUM’ recipe:
.
After some trial and error, this is the one I like the best and it’s very simple with only 3 organic ingredients! 🌿🍃
.
• 1/2 sweet almond oil
.
• 1/4 rosehip seed oil
.
• 1/4 vitamin E oil
.
It’s great for:
.
- dark circles
- dry skin under the eyes, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles
I gently massage it under and around my eyes at night 💛
.
If you are feeling adventurous, mix in some carrot seed oil and use it on your lips as well - morning and night.💕

Cleaning up the plastic waste in your area can have a positive effect on our environment.

Today at 6a.m at Carter Road, Bandra one such event was organized by @wanderingkamya
The initiative called for volunteers to come pick-up plastic waste at the sea-side. They even provided biodegradeable plastic bags to each volunteer. Around 30+ volunterrs arrived, pumped and excited to do something for the planet. It's only once you pick up the plastic bag that you realize the extent of the pollution. The entire place was filled with broken glass, plastic baggies, torn plastic bags, bottles, statues, and so much more. With all of this jumble and mess, who can see the beauty of the place? Only after cleaning up an area was I able to find this perfect stone, which I'd have never come across with all the waste piled up.

We need volunteers, we need help, and we need enthusiasm to make a difference. You can do something too! Come for such events whenever possible, and make a difference to your planet.
You can take a stand as well and organize something small. By picking up after yourself, recycling, throwing your plastic in the dustbin, you'll ensure that the waste doesn't end up on our beaches. Protect our planet.

Solemos excluirnos de los problemas cuando no son cercanos a nuestro contexto o nuestra realidad. Lo anterior nos hace pensar que los efectos y las consecuencias no nos van a afectar y así evadimos nuestra responsabilidad. En parte, esto nos brinda una falsa sensación de seguridad porque creemos que otros los resolverán; y esto tranquiliza nuestra conciencia.

Es hora de abrir los ojos. El planeta se encuentra bajo una crisis que amenaza nuestra existencia y la del resto de seres vivos. El inadecuado manejo de los residuos es un problema global que no se va a resolver solo y nadie más que nosotros mismos lo puede solucionar. No esperemos para hacer un cambio, hagamos el cambio el momento es ahora. .

Sun Xueli is wearing a blouse involuntarily assorted with the mountain of plastic bottles that surround her. Her work is to detach the paper strips and sort the plastic bottles by color. When the bottles arrive to her, at the colleting point in Hua Jü Yuan in the south of Beijing, they have already passed trough three stages: the migrant worker that collects them in the road, the intermediary that has bought them and then sold them in bulk to the contractor that rents this space from the state owned company China Recycling Development Corporation. CRDC will then sell the sorted bottles to a factory in the south of China that will eventually recycle them. / Photo by @paolowoods #china #planetorplastic #plastic

I’m not perfect and vanity & shameless self promotion may be evident in my account (I wear bikini when I pick up trash because I want to), but I met our city mayor last month (probably wearing a bikini too 😂), and after that meeting he/they revised the 2012 ordinance prohibiting the use of plastic bags and styrofoam in the city. Starting June 2, Saturdays in the city will already be plastic bag free. And according to the city mayor, it will be everyday before this year ends. I’m also going to meet him again with the mall owners regarding the plastic packagings of fruits and vegetables at supermarkets.
So residents of Bohol, please bring your own reusable bags when you shop in the city not only on Saturdays but everyday! 😊 @plasticfree_bohol

This stat makes me incredibly sad: by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. One contributing factor is the use of plastic straws. 🌎
.
💚 A plastic straw ban is being considered for NYC, and I hope it will become a reality. But there are simple shifts we can all make everywhere that can have a huge impact on our planet.
.
😞 Americans use 500 million plastic straws - every - single - day.
.
Here are 3 alternatives to consider:
✔️ Paper straws. I just ordered the @aardvarkstraws pictured here on amazon.com. They’re biodegradable, decompose in 45-90 days, and are FDA food-grade approved.
✔️ Reusable washable straws, made from glass or steel. Also available on amazon.
✔️Going straw free. Straw use can contribute to belly bloat (from sucking in air), and wrinkles (from frequent lip pursing). Two bonus reasons to give them up, at least most of the time!
.
✋ One super simple starting place is to request no straw when dining out.
.
🙌 For more info and action check out the hashtag #stopsucking and head to @natgeo to take the plastic pledge.
.
👉 How do you feel about this topic? Do you believe our small actions can collectively snowball into big environmental outcomes? Is plastic use a concern in your everyday life? Please share your thoughts! .

What is paradise? When we left Playa Del Carmen somebody said: oh your sure you wanna leave paradise(I guess he meant summer, heat, ocean, beach)? And I thought: what is paradise? I personally think every place has something beautiful! But I haven't found a real paradise yet. I like to be in cities/areas where I feel safe (during the day and at night). A city that's clean. A place where people respect nature. (Where they dont serve disposables;) Where people can live in peace. I like spring, summer, autumn and winter... I like fresh air, I don't like places where there's aircon everywhere. I love flowers and beautiful parks. I love the beach but an uncrowded one. I like countries with drinking water from tap. And areas where you can walk safely or hike on nice trails. I found beauty everywhere I've been too. But I haven't found paradise yet. What about you? Have you found "paradise" yet? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have a lot of respect and appreciation for those who are willing to be transparent (and human) in their journeys of reducing waste. Since waking up to the reality of my own wastfulness and plastic consumption, I've been taking many steps, often small, to change my habits. Here is my collection of zip lock baggies. I can't remember when I last bought sandwich bags, but it was likely a year ago. Since then, I've used and reused every zip lock bag I still owned ( and those that found their way to me as gifts or packaging). I'm determined to extract as long a life as I can from them (plus, fewer than 5% of plastic bags are recycled). .
.
.
I also still purchase certain items on Amazon, but not without deeply unsettling me. The inefficient, wasteful packaging that I barely noticed before bothers me. But I can't always find what I need elsewhere (or affordably). This is my reality. But for the first time, I'm also noticing the printed message with recycling instructions on Amazon's plastic package. And at least here, there's something I can do that will be better than nothing. .
.
.
Maybe you need that reminder, too? It's not about perfection. .

The Last Straw. We vow to never serve another plastic straw ever again ~ Part 1 of our True Green Project. Serendipitously this morning we discovered @natgeo June issue and their new campaign “Planet or Plastic” which is another stark reminder of the extent of the issue. It’s time for a change dear friends - beginning with one straw at a time... The straws we are now offering (upon request only) are made of recycled paper and break down naturally in less than 2 months leaving no toxic residue (while still being more durable than typical paper straws). We also have reusable stainless steel straws for sale for only $2 #planetorplastic #truegreenproject Photo credit: @yougogreens Featuring our NEW Matcha Mama Smoothie in honor of Patcha Mama #gogreen #organic

“P L A N E T OR P L A S T I C”
Haven’t we come too far with plastic?
There’s more plastic on earth than we humans. Many countries are banning the use of it and it’s one of the super bold moves towards saving this planet. But, what about the plastic that’s already been made and used and thrown. What about the plastic waste? Let’s encourage the plastic recycling industries and help save the planet.
I came people who had to say that plastic recycling is a business and why should I help someone for free to earn his share of money? Why should the laws and taxes be in favour of his business and not all?
Well, they’re helping to reduce the effect of plastic on environment. If a good deed can be promoted, I’d make the business tax free just to get rid off the plastic waste. Everyone would want to recycle plastic. In a years time, majority of the plastic waste shall be gone. What cannot be recycled should be banned from production at the grass root level.
Imagine an almost plastic free world within a years time. What’s better than that? Let’s help these people recycle and play our part in helping save the planet.

"PLASTIC PARADISE"
Plastic is woven into the fabric of our lives.

No-one in their daily life within a period of 10 minutes isn't touching something that is made of plastic. . Only 14% of plastic packaging is recycled, and it's the biggest source of plastic pollution in the oceans, according to the report.
If we reused more plastic packaging, and turned it back into other plastic products, the report concludes, we could significantly decrease the amount that goes into the oceans.
