helpearthsurvive Save marine life by disposing trash / litter appropriately and not into the sea.
Avoid the use of take away containers. Plastic materials don't biodegrade as efficiently as food waste.

trashworksdesign 'Whale' made of plastic I found at the seashore. Sometimes I find large pieces of plastic, but mostly it's these kind of tiny stuff. I love them the most. Making art of these small pieces is like making a puzzle without a template (www.trashworks.nl) #upcycled #upcycling #upcycleart #reUse #recycling #plastic #plasticsoup #plasticwaste #marinedebris #seashore #beach #beachtrash #beachcombing #art #abstract #primarycolours #ocean #fromtrashtoart #trashart #design #2minutebeachclean #creative #handmade #whale #animal #trashworks #plasticsoep #walvis 4d

ocean_fact Hello everyone. These are not jellyfish but our trash flushed at sea (or everywhere on land. Everything goes to the ocean). If you follow our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/oceanfactofficial?fref=ts), you might have seen an article on microplastic and corals. I want to talk about that today. Thanks @sweetfirebrand

But first, don’t forget our tomorrow’s contest SHARKS under #OFunity4. Continue to post sharks pictures.

Ocean Fact: Microplastics are plastic particles of size 1 to 5 mm. You can’t see them but organisms leaving in their own meal like aquatic animals, filter or have plastic to eat everyday. Those particles are so small they bioaccumulate inside the tissue of organisms and get bioamplify through the food chain (if you want to know more about that, leave a comment). You might think they are harmless but corals are a good example of how harmful they are to marine life. They accumulate in so high quantities that they plug the water circulation inside corals. No circulation, no food, no life. I don’t want to pessimistic neither to scare you but those particles are so small, they are found in planktonic organisms such as copepods. And we are eating plastic everyday eating sea products (fish, crustaceans…) no matter harmful they are. So please, keep the ocean clean! We can’t easily extract so small particles (if we can).

"In​​ future, plastic becomes the most popular snack". "Plastic, plastic, every where,
All the fish are bereft;
Plastic, plastic, every where,
Not a soul is left." This poem, adapted from "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, lays the cornerstone and namesake for the visual installation by Michelle Kuen Suet Fung, who just received The Grotto Award in Studio Arts and Extended Media, at the HKBU Masters of Visual Arts Graduation Exhibition 2015.

Upon arrival, visitors are bathed in a red light alert and captured by the biggest and central piece: a "futuristic" hot dog spanning several meters wide. The hot dog introduces the tone and timeline of the prophetic dystopian story. The toxic menace of plastic consumption towers not only for wildlife but also for children, in a world not so far away.

One scene illustrates a G5 Summit in 2048, where China asks “If animals can learn to eat plastic, why can't children?” The question is met with an array of plastic snacks, such as plastic chocolate, plastic biscuits, gasoline juice and so on.

Today, only 5 percent of all plastic waste is recycled, and the majority of it ends up in nature. The 5 gyres are filled with plastic debris from polar region to the equator (Greenpeace, 2011). Not only are plastic debris practically non-degradable, but they also attract animals to eat. "At least 267 different species are known to have suffered from entanglement or ingestion of marine debris including seabirds, turtles, seals, sea lions, whales and fish”. How are animals surviving a plastic diet right now? The tragic ends are captured in a film by Chris Jordan, MIDWAY, a documentary of plastic debris inside the corpses of juvenile seabirds.

How far would you go and sacrifice for the sake of convenience? "Plastic, plastic, every where." is free to public at the HKBU Academy of Visual Arts Kai Tak Campus. Until 31 July, 11:00-20:00. Room 208, Kai Tak Campus, 51 Kwun Tong Road http://www.mvagradshow.com/2015/

mikki_regina TRAVEL - Backpacker tip: when it comes to putting all your stuff in a #backpacker it is cool to #minimize size and weight of every item. If you take analog pictures you can easyly take the little plastic #Plasticcan e.g. for #soap #shampoo or #rinsingagent. And you don't have to buy any new plastic stuff! #reuse #reduce #plasticwaste #travel #traveltip #luggage #minimize #instagood #love #latergram #pastels #black #fabric #movebeutel #reisen #packen #art #photography #explore #wander #coolerwomen #coolerwoman #itscoolerwhenitscooler #surfgirlmag #drawing #art 1w

trashworksdesign Festival time! I could write about the cool bands, the nice parties and the good food, but as a trash-artist, I'm just going to show you this nice carpet knitted of used plastic bags #wttv #welcometothevillage #upcycling #recycling #reUse #plasticwaste #plasticbags #trashart #fromtrashtoart #festival #knitting #leeuwarden #breienmetagnes 1w
