⚠️🐾🗑️☣️ A graphic image with a strong and vital message behind it. Over 18 Million Tonnes of plastic enter the Ocean every single day. That's the equivalent of a dump truck emptying its contents into the sea every 16 seconds. And over 80% of this plastic is SINGLE USE. Bags, wrappers, containers, straws, etc. Used once and then thrown away without a second thought. ☠️
👬👭👫 We all have a responsibility to keep our planet safe. Stop using plastic and find safer alternatives. ♻️

God created this earth for us to live a joyous life, allowing nature to recharge and keep our souls connected with our bodies, vibrating with earth's frequency. Yet we continue to destroy all of God's beautiful creations by polluting our landfills, oceans, and air with toxic waste. Continuing to speed up climate change, melting the homes of arctic wildlife, creating massive wild fires that kills millions of trees, while continuing to cut down more trees for single use items and make room for corporate buildings. The society that surrounds us is disconnecting our souls from our bodies from the awakened child we once were. And for what, so humanity can live this picture perfect lifestyle in the eyes of society? I'm sorry, but that just ain't a good enough reason to destroy our earth. It's our responsibility more than ever to do whatever it takes to keep our earth clean, healthy and alive.
Just thought I would post a few of my zero-waste work essentials. I have my reusable bottle/flask from @globalwakecup - it’s been through the wars with clumsy old me but still serves me well! Next is my @keepcup - our college SU got some made with the college logo which I just couldn’t say no to. I have a repurposed glass jar with milk for my tea (I bring tea leaves with me and take them home in a lunchbox to compost, along with my apple cores) and finally, my poor, bruised apple which has been banging about in the bottom of my bag for two days! I always bring any food I’m going to eat at lunch with me instead of buying some and find that a little forward planning helps to reduce waste in the workplace. #ecojourney#sustainability#saynotoplastic#savethebees#cleantheseas#plasticfreejuly
Clean the seas
Plastic pollution affects our oceans and waterways each and every day. There is so much plastic in the oceans that some of it even ends up on our dinner plates without us even knowing. As plastic breaks down into micro plastics, fish are prone to eating them because they think it’s food. These fish are then caught and end up on dinner plates in restaurants all over our world, and then in our own stomachs, increasing the risk of serious diseases. Plastic can also be consumed by turtles and dolphins, which blocks their digestive tracks, eventually killing them. So, if you see any plastic on the beach or in the water, please pick it up and put it in the recycling bin.
my so called friends made cupcakes and brought me some because they knew i had a bad day yesterday , and I’m not sure how i feel about it because like didn’t they not think to invite me to make them ? but it’s whatever ig , college is starting soon and they’ll probably not talk to me when that comes around
All three of these designs are now available as art prints over in my Etsy store! (Link in my bio)
These are square prints, available in 6x6 inch and 8x8 inch options.
As always, there is an option to add a tattoo permission kit to your order at no extra cost if you would like to use these designs for your next tattoo!

All of our trash removal work thus far has been west of the Continental Divide. No mater what creek, wetland, or river we serve, we know that ultimately their watersheds drain into the mighty Pacific.
For the past year, home has been farther from her tranquil waters than ever before in my life. I put my hands and feet in icy streams fed by springs and snow melt and try to imagine the continuous flow of water that connects me to her.
So wonderful to make direct contact again at our favorite beach on the Oregon Coast.

Before posting any cute pictures of my trip to SD, I want to share some interesting facts with you about our Oceans and animal life I saw today! I want everyone to be aware of the dangers that are going on in our oceans. Always remember to clean up after yourself and to pick up trash wherever you see it whether that be on land or by our beaches. Be mindful of the food you eat and where you are putting your trash. I have listed some websites where you can donate or educate yourself more on these issues! #protectourenvironment#cleantheseas#lovewhatgivesuslife 💕🐠🐟🐬🌱
Thousands of sea turtles and other marine life are injured or die due to plastic straws and other plastic materials dumped in the ocean. Skip the straw, reuse bags and recycle! Clean our seas and save sea life! A big thank you and shout out to @shopsavtheturtle for my shirt!

Shout out to our newest Try Diver at @meltemidiversios cleaning up our oceans on his very first dive!
It’s a special moment when you get to witness genuine care for our planet, inspiring in fact. Matt took time out of his Fun Dive to be a real Trash Hero, something some of us full time divers don’t often do. The awareness of our trash problem is spreading far, wide and quickly! Lets hope it continues... here’s to spreading more of that consciousness and love 🤙🏾

Why compostable cups are good and why companies should start using them more:
🌊Less plastic in the ocean
🌊Saves the fishies
🌊They are sustainably made
🌊They can be sustainably recycled
🌊They do not sit in landfills taking 100’s of years to decompose
We must fight against companies that promote single use plastic and instead support those companies that support our planet!🌊🌎
