Our simple solution for #endplasticwaste going into our oceans and lakes via stormwater drains. The LittaTrap By installing a LittaTrap inside a catch basin, all plastic and pollutants are retained inside the patented basket. A LittaTrap is purposely designed to be lightweight, so once the basket is full, it can simply be lifted out and emptied,and then replaced.
A very powerful image of a #10yearchallenge that actually matters!! #Repost @lessplasticuk ・・・ #10YearChallenge - what are we going to do about this?? 😢 . This is a wake up call! We need to take a step back and truly SEE 👀what our consumer society is doing to our planet. Because when it's broken beyond repair, all the money and material stuff we prize so highly now will be useless 💰🗑 . A good place to start is to spend time and energy on cultivating the feeling of 'being enough' and 'having enough'. We have to break away from feeling like we always need MORE. . I know it's hard because we're bombarded from all sides with media and business interests who want us to switch-off our thinking, zone-out and just work harder so we can afford to buy more things to make us supposedly happier and keep the economy ticking over. But look what it's doing to our world! 🌍💔 . I'm going to try to make 2019 the year of 'enough'. I don't want my actions to contribute to this. I hope you will join me in trying to escape the consumer treadmill - buy less, have less and experience more of real life, by being more connected to the natural world. . If we start off consciously on this path, hopefully it will soon become our new way ✨💚 . . . . . #ClimateChange #ActOnClimate #NoBuy #LowBuy
Easily retrofitted into existing catch basins!
The LittaTrap is easily maintained by hand,reducing expensive maintenance costs. Simply LIFT-TIP-REPLACE
Installing a LittaTrap can reduce the risk of stormwater infrastructure blocking further downstream or act as a pre treatment for other treatment devices!
The LittaTrap is designed to capture all particles lager than 5mm or smaller with optional liner.
Every LittaTrap installation helps reduce the amount of plastic and litter in our waterways!
This is so sad! Way to many creatures are dying as a result of ingesting plastic! We need to invest in solutions to prevent this happening!! #LittaTrap #Repost @oceanplastik ・・・ 💀🐢 This turtle was found dead on the edge of Torres beach, on the north coast of Rio Grande do Sul, on Thursday. The died after ingesting plastic material, It was the fourth turtle that appeared dead on the beach since the end of December. #plastic #plastickills #plasticpollution #plastictrash #cleanup #recycle #preserve #protect #eco #change #changeisyou #oceanplastik #ptagger #rpndex #turtle #beach
OUR SOLUTION If plastic can't make its way into the stormwater, it can't make its way into the oceans. The LittaTrap simply sits inside the catch basin and when it rains, catches plastic, gross pollutants and litter caught up in the runoff before it can reach the rivers, lakes and oceans.
THE PROBLEM An estimated 80% of marine pollution comes from land and STORMWATER runoff is one of the MAJOR ways it gets there. Stormwater runoff from existing piping infrastructure in our cities and towns largely flows untreated into our marine environment. Plastics and other pollutants such as cigarette butts caught up in this runoff are having a drastic effect on water quality and marine life.
Our solution #LittaTrap We STOP plastic and other litter in the stormwater drain BEFORE it can reach our waterways. #Repost @green_matters_ ・・・ Any solution? a) put grids on all drains and then have them routinely emptied in all public places? b) increase number of public ashtrays? c) lobby government and cigarette companies for a filter that biodegrades? d) higher taxes on cigarettes? e) more public education campaigns? f) any other suggestions
This is a tragedy for our oceans and marine life. #Repost @oceanplastik ・・・ The #msczoe, the largest container ship which holds 19,000 containers has lost 270 containers full with #ikea plastic products due to a storm in the Nordsea. This needs to be cleaned up to avoid a disaster #plastic #plastickills #plasticpollution #plastictrash #cleanup #recycle #preserve #protect #eco #change #changeisyou #oceanplastik #ptagger #rpndex #nordsea
