October is UNBLOCKTOBER – a month to save our sewers and seas! Everyone can easily get involved by committing to putting none of the following down the drain/ loo this October. Some of these we cannot quite believe need listing! 1. Cooking oil 2. Food – even crumbs 3. Butter 4. Margarine 5. Lard 6. Cooking sauce 7. Wet wipes 8. Period products – tampons, applicators, wrappers 9. Period products – pads & towels 10. Nappies 11. Condoms 12. Cotton buds 13. Contact lenses 14. Bandages & plasters 15. Dental floss 16. Razor blades They say it takes 21 days to form a habit so let’s hope that by the end of the month everyone taking part picks up this healthy habit. Then we just need to work on everyone else 😊 For more info visit: https://www.unblocktober.org/ @unblocktober

The tide is turning on the plastic industry! .. From today, it is illegal for businesses in England to give out plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds to customers. There are exemptions in place for disabled people and those with medical conditions who require plastic straws. .. We will be picking up these plastic items from our beaches for decades to come, but this ruling should provide some respite for marine life. .. A small step in the right direction to protect the planet from plastic pollution! . . . . . . . #PlasticFree #turnthetide #plasticpollution #beachclean #take3forthesea #5minutebeachclean #StopThePlasticTide #SaveOurSeas #ecoblogger #plogger #betterfuture #plasticstraw #plastic #plasticstirrer #plasticsucks #cottonbud #plasticfreeliving

In a beautiful unbleached cotton bag you get 1 metal splade (knife, fork and spoon all in one ) bamboo chopsticks, bamboo smoothie straw and straw cleaner. Fantastic for keeping in your bag for takeaway, lunch at work and traveling. Now you will always have your reusable cutlery with you. $13.95 for 1 set $27 for 2 sets $39 for 3 sets We are so happy to hear that plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds in England are now BANNED!

A recent study conducted along the coast of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile found that every single cormorant nest contained some plastic.⁠ 😔⁠ “Other studies have found maybe 80 percent of nests in a colony had some plastic content, but all 100 percent of the 151 nests we counted contained plastic," García-Cegarra said.⁠ 💔⁠ "The study — and photos — offer a striking look at how plastic pollution has hammered ocean and coastal ecosystems. Though plastics have been widely used by humans for 70 years, their devastating environmental impacts are only just starting to be understood."⁠ ⁠ Read the full study via the link in our bio.⁠ ⁠ #plasticpollutes #plasticpollution #cormorant #cormorants #seabirds #savetheseabirds #saveourseas #plasticfree #plasticfreeseas #saynotoplastic #refuseplastic #refusesingleuse #refusesingleuseplastic #breakfreefromplastic

We’ve still been doing our beach clean-ups. This morning we sorted through all of it and we’re heading to @norfolkbotanicalgarden to drop it off. The Blonde likes to collect all of the little soft fishing baits but he knows it’s not fair that they’re even washing up on shore in the first place. I’ll be honest. This hasn’t been an easy project. Not only is it time consuming, but it’s also emotionally exhausting. There’s a reason so many people choose to pretend this problem doesn’t exist- because it’s easier. It’s easier to ignore it. It takes less physical and emotional effort. It takes zero time out of your day to just walk on past all of garbage on the ground. When you ignore it, you get to continue living your life exactly as you were and just pretend everything is okay. I get it. I do. But that’s not how we fix this problem for future generations. That’s not how we ensure our time on this planet AS ANIMALS doesn’t ruin the time on this planet for all the other animals who call Earth home. We are all creatures that evolved from the same tiny bacteria that first appeared in water millions of years ago. We just happened to be the species that evolved the most so we get to rule the planet. Let’s not take that privilege for granted. We have a job to do here. We have a responsibility to take that privilege seriously and make sure Earth can sustain life for millions of years more. We have to stop ruining our home.

The @stopfinningeu campaign: how does it work? 1 million signatures are required to get the “Fins Naturally Attached” policy in the EU extended to the import, export, and transit of sharks and rays. This would make their trade financial unviable and stunt a barbaric industry. Just 7 of the 27 EU countries are required to make significant contributions to the signature total. Considering there are 446 million residents in the EU this is totally achievable!

The costume half of Mandi, which is worn from the shoulder down, is also referred to as the Ocean. It features an underwater scene of sea life created from recycled plastic wrappers, which were then ironed together between clear plastic carrier bags to form a fabric. This section of the Ocean was the most time-consuming part of the Making of Mandi, as it features hundreds of individually hand cut elements. Head over to our blog (link in bio ) to read all about the making of Mandi: https://ceceluna.co.uk/2020/10/01/the-making-of-mandi/ And check out our behind-the-scenes video of Making of Mandi over on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/V0fkkdEq7lQ Mandi concept & design by @cecelunacostumes Costume created by @cecelunacostumes Photo by @emily .m.adventures #ceceluna #costume #costumes #costumedesign #costumier #costumedesigner #costumemaker #recycledcostume #wearableart #wearableartwork #climatechange #globalwarming #plasticpollution #plasticcostume #fusedplastic #fusedplasticbags #fusedplasticart #saynotosingleuse #saveourseas #saveourplanet #worldcleanupday #greatbritishbeachclean #reducereuserecycle #recyle #fightingfortrashfreeseas #greatbritishseptemberclean #keepbritaintidy #gbseptemberclean #lovenature #englandsbigpicture

Mandi is a costume and puppet designed and created by @cecelunacostumes It all started way back in January 2020, when as a household, we decided to collect all of the plastic wrappers that couldn’t be recycled locally in the household waste collections, with the aim that we would then transform them into a costume as a comment on the waste we had produced. Further on down the line in July 2020, we were approached by Thurrock Festival and T100 to create a large-scale costume to welcome the T100 walkers into the Thurrock Festival and Grays Mandala activities. The inspiration for Mandi came from documentaries about plastic pollution in the oceans and waterways, including the BBC’s ‘War on Plastic’ and Channel 5’s ‘The Secret World of Your Rubbish’. We were shocked by the heart-breaking images of plastics in the ocean, the sea life entrapped and entangled within it, as well as mistaking the plastics for food. Mandi was created as a comment on the plastic pollution in the ocean, which is still continuing to grow due to the increased use of single-use products because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic such as disposable facemasks and gloves. We are really grateful to have had the opportunity to film Mandi with the puppeteer on the day of the Thurrock Festival at a secret location, as it had to be cancelled from the live event due to the increased Covid-19 restrictions in the UK.

I get asked this all the time " isn't diving with sharks scary?" My usual response is "driving on the 405 in rush hour traffic is the most terrifying thing I've done." We are taught to fear sharks, no matter where we are from. People are terrified and they've never been in the ocean or seen a shark. We have to change the conversation. This is why I'm so passionate about teaching kids. We can give them facts NOT fear and empower them to be advocates for change. They can be a voice. #savesharks #sharks4kids #lemonshark #underwaterphotography #uwphoto #sharkweek #bimini #sharks #lemonsharks #sharklover #liveyourpassion #beavoice #padiambassadiver #itsbetterinthebahamas #bethechange #saveourseas #saveoursharks #sharkeducation #sharksforkids

. In 2019, it was revealed Coca-Cola produces three million tonnes of plastic packaging a year – equivalent to 200,000 bottles a minute❗❗❗ 😱 . The same year, the drinks company was found to be the most polluting brand in a global audit of plastic waste by the charity Break Free from Plastic. 🥺😢 . Coca-Cola will not ditch single-use plastic bottles because ‘customers still want them’, the company’s head of sustainability Bea Perez has said. . The firm – which is one of the world’s biggest plastic waste polluters – believes if it stopped using plastic outright, it would have an adverse effect on sales. 😠 . Ever hear of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch❓❗ The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world and is located between Hawaii and California. . It is estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean each year from rivers❗❗❗ 😢 . #linovitgreen #eco #ecofriendly #ecofriendlyliving #saveearth #savetheplanet #gogreen #plastic #savetheturtles #savetheocean #saveourseas #pacificgarbagepatch #savethereef #saveocean #ecomonday #ecolife #environmentallyfriendly #saveourplanet #liveclean #recycle #green #environment #organic #sustainable #zerowaste #motherearth #globalwarming #bethechange #cleantech #sustainability

🌟Examples of environmental threats and how they’re directly tied to social justice🌟⠀ ⠀ FOSSIL FUELS — Neighborhoods closest to fossil fuel plants consist heavily of low-income Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC ). These plants release toxic chemicals like sulfur dioxide, benzene, mercury, and particulate matter into the air. This air pollution can have devastating consequences on human health such as birth defects, heart issues, and asthma. ⠀ ⠀ DEFORESTATION — In the Amazon Rainforest, losing trees and vegetation not only furthers climate change, but enables flooding and soil erosion, threatening the lives of indigenous people. Not to mention, before the clear-cutting of trees, indigenous tribes are often forced out of their land by the government. Forest loss in Borneo has also been linked to a spike in human malaria cases.⠀ ⠀ ANIMAL AGRICULTURE — Workers of factory farms who slaughter and process the bodies of farmed animals face hazardous and excruciating working conditions. Immigrants are a growing percentage of the industry’s workers, according to the Human Rights Watch, and many of which are undocumented, unable to bargain for improved working conditions in fear of being deported. Low-income BIPOC communities are typically closest to factory farms, where animal waste washes into the water and land. ⠀ ⠀ PLASTIC POLLUTION — Our discarded plastic is often found washed up on the shores or shipped to other countries that lack safe and adequate waste management, polluting their water, soil, and air. Without proper waste management, communities often have no choice but to burn the plastic, which has horrible health impacts.⠀ ⠀ ——————————————————⠀ ⠀ As evironmentalists and conservationists, when we ignore social justice issues we are neglecting to acknowledge one of the core roots of environmental destruction. Let’s all continue educating ourselves & amplifying those who are the most impacted 💙🌎⠀ ⠀ 🎨 @kennaaloha

Open wide! Computer models suggest that the maximum bite force for a large white shark would be 18,000 newtons (1,800kgm/s2 ), but this hasn’t been measured on a living shark. White sharks have very sharp teeth and rely on slicing and head-shaking to rip off chunks of flesh, so they don’t need to bite down with their full force. The bite force quotient (BFQ ), which compares bite force to body mass, is about 164 for a great white, compared with 181 for a Tasmanian devil and 440 for the Nile crocodile. #sharks #shark #greatwhite #whiteshark #greatwhiteshark #sharkphoto #earthcapture #carcharadoncarcharias #conservation #finfree #southafrica #ocean #marinelife #sharkaware #whitepointer #savesharks #saveoursharks #saveourseas #wildlife #gansbaai #sharkalley @discoversharks @oceanskeepers @sharks_are_awesome1 @simplysharks @whitesharkdaily @sharksdaily @bbcearth @sharkoftheweek #sharklover @shark .passion @gansbaai_tourism
