Dear Zero Waste family, as a regular volunteer of the amazing Namma Ooru Foundation in Chennai, I request you to contribute to our fundraiser and share the message with your friends. This is a dedicated volunteer based non profit working hard to increase community action towards proper waste management and a healthier city. I particularly love the efforts to drive the zero waste message through school students and am super excited about one of our ongoing projects.! Your support is most important to us. Feel free to contact me with any queries. Link in bio.

Namma Ooru Foundation has been spreading the THROW DIFFERENTLY mantra towards various Greening efforts at Schools, Communities and Temples. We have been making these transformations with a lean team of dedicated volunteers thus far.

We are at a tipping point now, with a compelling agenda to scale up and replicate our models to reach far and wide, employing best practices acquired and building prototypes.

That calls for additional resources and is the genesis of this TRASH IT RIGHT crowd funding initiative.
http://www.ketto.org/trashitright.

Please do visit our website www.nammaooru.org or our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/nammaoorufoundation to know more about us and our work.

We look forward to your support and patronage as backers for our fund raising movement. Together let's transform Chennai into a cleaner, greener city with the Trash it Right mantra and your generous contributions!
And do spread the word around too, to help us reach our goals.

You are the problem. I am the problem, and everyone is the problem. No one thinks their actions make a difference and that’s why our oceans are being destroyed and living beings are being killed. Make a change today! 🐢

Distressing! 😢 This photo taken by scuba instructor Roger Millán shows how our plastic addiction can be deadly to marine life.

It’s time to #breakfreefromplastic!

Visited Mike Perry's Môr Plastig (Plastic Sea) exhibition in the Arts Centre in Aberystwyth today. It was challenging to look at plastic items found in the sea that were shown as both 'symbols of over-consumption and disregard for the environment' and 'evidence of the beauty and power of nature to sculpt our world, whatever we humans decide to throw at it.' #exhibition #plasticpollution #founditems

Have you done a beach cleanup? It's an easy way to make a couple of hours make a difference. Check your local beaches and parks to see if they one scheduled. If not, why not organize one! It's a great community project.
Founder @ConorZimmerman and #TeamExtraCatch joined the city of Fort Lauderdale for their clean up last Saturday.

The Red Sea is a stunning place to dive. However, the Egyptians have a big plastic problem. On a dive around Abu Dabbab this summer I spotted an odd looking sight on the reef. On closer inspection I found a black plastic bag so thoroughly entangled on a piece of coral it covered the entire branch structure. Worse, I could see clownfish still swimming around inside the coral branches.
Anyone who has dived or snorkelled with me knows - if I see plastic I have to pick it up. Trying to be as gentle as I could, to not break the coral or cause more stress to the clownfish, I unpicked the plastic bag. Not an easy task, the bag was so tangled it took me a long while (away from my dive buddies) to remove it. Finally I stuffed it in my BCD and took it back to the boat.

Marine debris is not only unsightly, it’s dangerous to sea life, hazardous to human health, and costly to our economies. Marine animals become entangled in debris, and even mistake it for food - often with fatal results. Divers, swimmers and beach goers can be directly harmed by encounters with marine debris or its toxins.

Education is vital to change our plastic culture and it all starts with the change we make in ourselves

Low Density Polyethylene
_
Uses commonly for film plastics - grocery bags, bread bags, newspaper bags, garbage bags.
_
This plastic is considered relatively safe - but has shown that it can leach endocrine disruptor - nonylphenol. Especially when exposed to UV light.
_
This plastic is usually recycled into plastic lumbar or bins. And it can be recycled at your grocery store! (Film bags)
_
Bring your own bags to the grocery store with you, and get your bread from bakery in your own bag!
A paper bag works great for your garbage!

PC: @ecofriendlyalternatives Approximately 90% of all trash floating in our oceans is plastic.
46,000 pieces of plastic floating per square mile.

TIME IS UP. We need to act now.🌎 encourage friends and family to reduce, reuse, or recycle plastic use.

Mother nature is counting on us to make a change.

⁣⁣
Fast fashion is becoming a severe issue worldwide and we have all contributed to it.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Fast fashion is “an approach to fashion that emphasizes making fashion trends quickly and cheaply available to consumers”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In other words, stores such as; @primark, @topshop and @newlook cut corners in the process in order to get trends from catwalk to stores as quickly as possible.
So next time you see the budget prices at one of these stores, consider the reasons why they are so cheap.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Alternatives to this (which aren’t always more expensive are:⁣⁣
👕 Charity Shops⁣⁣
👕 Ethical Brands⁣⁣
👕 Wearing Clothing Until It’s Unwearable⁣⁣
👕 Repairing Rips & Holes⁣⁣
👕 Not Following Trends 24/7⁣⁣
👕 Having A Capsule Wardrobe⁣⁣
⁣⁣
*More on all of this to follow*⁣⁣

Meet my new friend, the talented and generous Ali Skanda, and his flip flop dhow. Ali carries forward the craftsmanship of one of the most famous woodcarving families in East Africa. He and his team carve beautiful wooden boats, but they built this beauty from plastic refuse and flip flops they pulled out of the Indian Ocean. Ali wants to raise awareness about the precarious state of our oceans and encourage new ways to clean up our planet. They will be sailing the boat to Zanzibar in a few months and I will be working to help them promote this incredible self-funded project. Anyone else want to get on board with ideas or connections? Let me know!

🇱🇹 žemiau!
I went for a walk by the sea today. 🌊 Such a mind clearing activity until you see... ⁉️ swipe to see what 🧚‍♀️ Moral of the story, don’t leave bad stuff on the beach, buy locally made cheese, and wear your shoes, kids. ☀️

Šiandien ėjau pasivaikščioti prie jūros. 🧘‍♀️ Buvimas prie jūrų ar vandenynų padeda man išvalyti galvą nuo nereikalingų minčių...🧚‍♀️ padeda, iki kol nepradedu matyti.. ⁉️ swip’inikit pamatyti ko 🌻 Istorijos moralas, nepalikit blogų dalykų pliažuose, pirkit vietinį sūrį, ir nepamirškit savo batų, vaikai. 🤷‍♀️

Plastic is becoming a minefield for our aquatic animals. #aquaticlife #plasticpollution
In Los Angeles alone, 10 metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean🌊

who doesn’t like swimming in the ocean?
did you know plastic chemicals such as dioxins can be absorbed by our bodies from swimming in the ocean?🏊🏼‍♀️ 93% of americans 6 & older test positive BPA

It’s time to make a change. #ecofriendy #makeachange #saveourearth #savetheplanet #pollution #facts #oceanlife #environment #nature #ocean #turtles

Sustainable & Ethical underwear now up on the blog! ✨🌿💚
Click the link in our bio to see a list of all our favorite brands, which include men's and kids options !!
.
One of the most common questions we get is where to find sustainable underwear, NOT second hand. You probably could find them second hand but I wouldn't recommend that 😂
.
That's why it's so important to support brands that focus on sustainable and ethical production that have core values. Although, most of these brands are international, so that's something to think about in regards to sustainability and transportation emissions. But if you're in the US like me, we also have some nearby options 💚
.
This bra is from @hara_thelabel and is literally biodegradable. That's why they're my #1 and first on the list in my blog post.
My post guides you through a list of the best sustainable and ethical underwear brands around, and that I like the best ✨ But if you know of others LMK! What brands do you guys like? -Geevie

Amazing footage from @oligwest out paddle boarding in Australia and meeting up with some new Southern Right Whale friends. 🐋🐋 The oceans and their ecosystems are so important to protect and conserve. Things you can do from home include eating only sustainable seafood (see @seafoodwatch), sign petitions that protect marine environments and reduce carbon in our climate, reduce your trash including single-use plastics, and educate yourself about oceans and marine life. For more, see my bio link for more ideas 👀

25/10/2018 - We had a relaxed pick down Church Road and Barton road in Plymstock. Lots of tiny bits and as the tide was out we were able to salvage lots from the dock!!
It was fun and everyone had a great time! We were even joined by a local boy who is 11 and aims to be an environmentalist!!!
Much thanks to Cllr Pamela Buchanan for joining us and encouraging both her family and friends to come along. We look forward to continuing to work together!

Number of volunteers - 9
Bags collected - 3

This is the fur of my camel 🐫 in Jordan. 😂 No, I'm joking.
My collegue gave this to me, it's a jacket, brand new, it didn't do anything for her. I'm só going to upcycle this! I smell pompoms, a string cord, nice lining!
When I was in the desert of Wadi Rum 🏜 in Jordan I was horrified when I saw all the rubbish in the sand at some places. I was expecting pure clean sand and not rusted 7-Up and Coca Cola cans (still with those pull-of thingies I haven't seen in almost twenty years!!). And plastic. And plastic. And plastic. Tourists maybe, locals maybe...I don't know. What I do know is that recycling in three different trash bins, straw-awareness or a government that sends those clean-up-and-brush-cars through the streets is not a common sight in Jordan. So, I think all the #reuse, #recycle, #upcycle hashtags we use on IG doesn't make a difference there if the government doesn't change. How can wé do something??
