[LU] Eng schéi Geschicht.🐢 Zesumme mat zuelräiche Benevollen huet den Afroz Shah iwwert engem Zäitraum vun 2 Joer e vun de weltwäit verschmotzte Stränn an Indien gebotzt. Haut gouf den Dreck duerch honnerte vu Schildkrötebëbeeën ersat. E Beweis, datt all Mënsch eppes bäidroe kann! Schéine Start an d’Woch 💚
[FR] Une belle histoire. 🐢
Accompagné de nombreux volontaires, Afroz Shah a passé 2 ans à nettoyer une plage indienne, l'une des plus polluées au monde. Aujourd’hui, les déchets ont été remplacés par des centaines de bébés tortues. La preuve que chacun peut contribuer ! Bon début de semaine 💚

Kenya introduced one of the worlds toughest laws against plastic bags. If you are caught producing, selling, or even using plastic bags you will risk imprisonment of up to four years. this should be worldwide, who’s agrees?❗️

Well then I’m Barbie 💁🏼♀️
Plastic is literally everywhere. From the depths of our oceans to the peak of Mount Everest to the INSIDE of our bodies, plastic has taken its claim.
A new study from the University of Newcastle in Australia has helped calculate the amount of plastic we are truly consuming. And it’s a sickening amount. All of us are consuming 50,000-70,000 particles of plastic a year and we can’t escape it. It’s in the air; it’s in our food, and it’s in our water.
According to the study, most of the plastic we are ingesting comes from our water — which isn’t surprising to me. And if you’re the type who likes to drink from plastic bottles, not only are you not my friend but you’re also consuming even more plastic.
It’s yet to be determined what the health risks are, but it’s safe to say there are no benefits. What’s needed is a wake up call to corporations worldwide to stop producing plastic…what you can do locally is to refuse to buy it. Refuse plastic and large corporations won’t produce it. Simple economics. No demand…no supply.
Link in the comments of the article published by USA Today on the subject.
Less than a decade ago, most populations of polar bears were considered healthy, even growing. But climate change, oil exploration, toxic pollution and overhunting are impacting the population of this Arctic icon.
Polar bear populations could decline by as much as a third by mid-century and possibly by as much as 50% by 2050.
What happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic, and the world is already feeling the effects. Help us make a change, it’s time to make a difference.

The typical person uses 1.6 straws per day on average. Every 10 straws we supply could prevent 16 straws from being used per day, thats 5,840 straws per year! This is just one small step i have taken on my site @stupidamerican.us to help lessen our impact on the earth because i feel its a #nobrainer thats why my new hemp and organic cotton clothing line on the way ✌️
Please tag someone who uses straws to inform them 🙏

GREEN CLEANING 🌱🍃🌿🌵💚This #sustainablesunday is about household cleaning. Many cleaning products contain toxic chemicals that can legally be labelled as “fragrances” in the ingredients list. A lot of people suffer with reactions to these chemicals as they can be irritable to skin. ☠️ Green cleaning products are more likely to be made using sustainable manufacturing processes and biodegradable materials. Below are some of the cleaning products I use at home.
I recently switched from good old Fairy Liquid to @ecover_uk washing up liquid. 🍽Created in 1979 by “Belgian Hippy scientists” after seeing the damage that cleaning products were doing to the ocean and wildlife. Unlike synthetic washing up liquids it doesn’t foam/froth up as much. 🛁💦I’ve found this with many green cleaning products, which takes a while to get used to. It also feels that I end up using quite a bit more so it doesn’t last as long. On the plus side Ecover uses 100% natural and plant based ingredients, so you don’t need to worry about any harmful chemical residue being left behind. Their packaging is made from polypropylene and polyethylene which are both 100% recyclable. What I love about this brand is that they have partnered with many natural/organic shops (and now supermarket chain Waitrose in Oxford, as they trial a zero-waste scheme) to create “Refill Stations” where you can go to top-up. 🚰🎈
For an all round cleaner I use, @drbronner 18-in-one Castille soap. It is said to have 18 different uses, which is why I love it so! I’ve used it for cleaning the bathroom🧽🚿, scrubbing clothes (it removes stains) 🧺🧦and washing my skin. You can also use it as a shampoo, for washing dishes, brushing your teeth and mopping the floor. It all began with Jewish-German founder, Emanuel Bronner’s “Moral ABC” which is printed on the bottle. Their ethos is all about looking after ourselves, each other and the Planet. Check out more of their story on their website. 📖
For kitchen surfaces in particular I use @method_uk . The company was created in 2001 by friends Adam and Eric who wanted safe cleaning products that people wouldn’t have to “hide under their sinks”. *continued in comments*

What type of person at you?
Have you taken a moment to think about what u can do for a better and cleaner future..tag a friend who needs to switch...
Drinking water is available at most places..all u need to do is carry a bottle along that u can refill while u travel. Fill it at the restaurant , the railway station, or any other place that has drinking water supply.. say no tyo the bottled water at restaurants not only will it save u a lot of money it would reduce that much plastic waste ...AND PLEASE DONT SAY U RECYCLE. ..that no excuse to use the one time use plastic bottle. Try to reduce your waste creation then think about recycling...( recycling is not the beat option especially when the product wasn't required in the first place).
Beach days and island times are officially here! 🏝🏖⛵️🌊 A plastic bottle ruins your cold water, let alone sea waters if not wasted properly for recycling. At #plastikourgeio you can find your own reusable bottle by @chillysbottles in a wide variety of colors and sizes! Keep your water cool for more than 24 hours and have a chilled summer! ☀️

💦 Drink more water! 💦⠀
Our bodies are 60% water. Staying hydrated is so important for our bodies to to thrive. As well as being essential for all our organs to function, drinking water can give your more energy, better brain power and healthy skin. It's recommended we drink 8 glasses a day, roughly 2 litres, and even more if we're in a hot climate or exercising. ⠀
Not drinking enough? Try these tips!⠀
💧Carry a water bottle - always having a water bottle in reach will remind you to take sips of water throughout the day, instead of waiting until you feel thirsty. In fact, scientists say once you feel thirsty, you're already dehydrated! ⠀
💧Track your intake - if you're really struggling to drink enough, keep track using a water bottle with time markings to encourage consistent hydration every hour. ⠀
💧Flavour your water - if you find plain water boring try adding cucumber, lemons, mint leaves, strawberries, limes or whatever you fancy to your water for added flavour and excitement. ⠀
💧Make it a habit - train your brain to reach for water by integrating it into your day e.g a glass before every meal or a sip every time you send an email.⠀
💧Switch to tea - drinking herbal tea is a delicious way to up your water intake.⠀
💧Use a straw - it's been shown that when you drink through a straw you drink faster. Why not try these uber-stylish glass straws from @saveplanetathereisnoplanetb , coming soon to thecleancollective.com! Get yours at the link in our bio 👆 or by tapping on the product tag 🙌⠀
