kitchencounterculture Came with takeaway #sushi as the soy sauce. In the past I might have enjoyed the convenience and whimsical package design. Depressing and infuriating when you think about it. What disrespect to fish, not just the kitsch reference to the living material of the sushi itself, but the way that plastics are dominating oceans, filling the bellies of birds, spiralling in “widening gyres.” I am inspired by people who completely reject disposable plastic, and I want to figure out how to do this more and more and more. I always like when #reject is added to the #reduce #reuse #recycle trilogy. 14h

bolo.de.blueberry Don't trash 'n travel! Just don't trash. This is an example what you'll find when cleaning the shores. Yes, in Finland too. #jussarö #trash #tammisaari #ekenäs #shores #archipelago #sea #balticsea #wheninfinland #cleanocean #nowaste #plasticwaste #humantraffic #instatravel 2d

pam_spanglez1983 My good deed for the day done... There was loads of plastic washed up on the shoreline today, including this netting! It's all been picked up and put in the bin.

ikeasverige Mandy Barker är en fotograf med ett kall. Med en vacker komposition av färg och form lockar hon fram betraktaren till verket, men väl framme förstår man att det handlar om miljöförstöring. Barkers färgglada planet består nämligen av plastskräp som hon fiskat upp ur havet.
Just nu finns de 11 verken i #IKEAArtEvent2016 på IKEA.se och i varuhusen, passa på att investera i fin fotokonst till ett lika fint pris! 
Bilden är beskuren.

sea_yogi There is trash everywhere out here.  The problem is this,  you guys:  there is nowhere for it to go.
Every weekend I go to a different beach on a different island.  And every weekend it's the same.  Bottles. Spoons. Shoes. Lighters. Lids. Rope. Bags. Purses. And on and on and on.
And what to do? Pick it all up? Sure. Then what? Can't put it in the bin on the way to the car.  Can't drop it at the recycling center on the way home. I'm on an island in the middle of the sea.
I visit the local villages here and their beaches are strewn with everything from broken plates and discarded clothes to plastic bags and aqua bottles. I could rally the people together.  Let's clean the beach! Plastic bags in this pile,  bottles over there! But then what? Burn it? Bury it? The nearest plastic bank is half a day away by boat.
And around and around my thoughts go until I come back to where I started.  Overwhelm and devastation.  There is so much litter here.  It's fucking ugly. It's killing our oceans. And I have no idea what to do about it.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to stumble across Trash Hero who have been there and done that and are full of suggestions and solutions to help people like me who have zero clue where to start.
Born in Thailand,  the Trash Hero mission is to "create sustainable,  community-based projects that remove existing waste,  and reduce future waste by inspiring long-term behaviour change"
I had the great privelage of meeting the @trashherosanur team on Sunday afternoon.  I cleaned plastic debris and talked eco bricks and left the beach feeling a bit more inspired and a bit more hopeful.. You can read more about the Trash Hero mission,  their story + their chapters by visiting their website trashhero.org  Join a chapter or start your own! #plasticwaste #plasticdebris #oceandebris #saveouroceans #saveourseas #saveourplanet #oceanwarrior #indonesia #bali #sanur #trashhero

forbymikroplast Vi bruker plast i enorme mengder, og mye av dette kommer på avveie i naturen og ender da som oftest i havet. Plast er forurensing, vi må redusere forbruket og finne alternativer til plast. #brukmindreplast #fremtiden #generasjoner #lessplastics #lesswaste #plasticwaste #antropocene 2d
