Did you know @Tortugamusicfestival fans and artists have planted more than 40,000 Sea Oats on Fort Lauderdale Beach, improving the natural habitat for sea turtles? Ready to do it again in 2020! @seaturtleop #tbt
Happy #SustainabilityDay! This special holiday was created to remind the community of the importance of caring for the environment and what you can do to prove it! Schools, companies and organizations of all kinds have dedicated the day to sustainable living all around the globe!
We see it in the headlines all the time. “So and so company plans to reduce single use plastic by (insert year).” Do you buy it? . . . @McDonalds - By 2025, they’ll have straws that are made from renewable, recycled, or certified sustainable sources. @Sodexho - Plan to get rid of polystyrene foam items such as cups, lids, and food containers. @Nestle - Pledged to make 100 percent of ALL its product’s packaging recyclable or reusable. . . . It’s always refreshing to see those headlines, but we need to see it HAPPEN. Don’t want to see them sweat, we need CHANGE!
This was a baby.. if this doesn’t just break your heart! Be aware of where your single use plastics go, neglecting to monitor it can clearly end tragically 😭 . . . #Repost @wildlifefirst · · · This baby loggerhead was found with 104 pieces of plastic in its stomach in Boca Raton, Florida. It’s a stark reminder that we must protect our oceans and all do our part to reduce plastic use. Emily Mirowski, a sea turtle rehabilitation assistant at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, examined the turtle that washed ashore before it died. Mirowski told CNN that the turtle “was weak and emaciated”. After its death, the Center performed a necropsy on the turtle, which was small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and found its stomach full of plastic. “It was really heartbreaking,” Mirowski said. “But it’s something we’ve seen for several years and we’re just glad people are finally seeing this image and hopefully it’s raising awareness.”
The impact of plastic is bigger than us! There are so many ways to make a difference: - Participate in a beach cleanup. - Utilize reusable grocery bags at the store. - Take a reusable cup to the coffee shop. - Reuse plastic you get from online shopping. You can help prevent horrible situations like the one in this post, you just have to try! // Via @ecobased
