The Amazon has been burning at record rates. The man-made devastation was not recorded by mainstream media until the public outcry over social media. Ask yourself, why? What can you do? 1) Address the amount you consume. Our addiction to consumption is devastating the ecosystems that sustain us 2) Lobby governments that want to enter trade agreements with Brazil, reject the companies that are profiting off the destruction, and support the indigenous and ally organizations that are resisting every day. 3) Reduce your paper and wood consumption. 4) Reduce your oil consumption. 5) Reduce your BEEF & DAIRY consumption. 6) Hold businesses accountable. 7) Invest in rainforest communities. 8) Support the grassroots. 9) Support @rainforestalliance @rainforestactionnetwork @amazonwatch 10) Donate via https://doe.sosamazonia.org.br/en and @amazonwatch 11) Refrain from cocaine! The cocaine trade is having a devastating impact destroying swathes of Central and South American rainforest, not to mention the violence, death and destruction it leaves in its wake. #actforamazonia #action #brazil #rainforest #wildfire #prayforamazonia

Even in the furthest reaches of our planet the effects of our actions are creating waves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We decide what effect we can have on our planet. We do not consent to our environments being destroyed and life being degraded. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myecoresolution #ourchoicesmatter #bepartofthesolution #plasticpollution #plasticfree #zerowaste #plastic #savetheplanet #environment #recycle #climatechange #pollution #ocean #beachcleanup #gogreen #sustainability #ecofriendly #plasticfreeoceans #reuse #recycling #earthday #oceanconservation #saynotoplastic

Approximately 1 million sea birds die from plastic every year. This very sad image is a reminder of the effects of our actions. Together we can become part of the solution but not consuming plastics and boycotting the business! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myecoresolution #ourchoicesmatter #bepartofthesolution #plasticpollution #plasticfree #zerowaste #plastic #savetheplanet #environment #birds #ocean #beachcleanup #sustainability #ecofriendly #plasticfreeoceans #reuse #earthday #oceanconservation #saynotoplastic #noexcuseforsingleuse

Happy birthday to our brilliant and inspiring co-creator @caradelevingne ✨🌸🌿 Cara kicked off the #MyEcoResolution campaign with the knowledge that if we care about human rights, we have to start acting to limit climate change and environmental degradation. We need to empower ourselves and empower each other. The fear of not being perfect stunts the potential of real change within ourselves and society. Through positive daily actions, education and changing behaviour and consumer habits we can all become part of the solution. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We love you Cara! Thank you for your continued support ✨💚✨💙✨

There are powerful reasons to switch to a menstrual cup! An individual goes through approximately 11,000 disposable pads and/or tampons in a lifetime. Multiply that number by everyone on this planet that gets his or her period and that equals a substantial amount of waste. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While the actual products contribute largely to the problem, we should also take the life-cycle of the products into consideration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First of all, we have the raw material extraction, which involves the production of cotton (a very water intensive process; cotton is considered the world’s “thirstiest crop,” requiring six pints of water to grow just one little bud) and most use non-organic cotton, which has been saturated in pesticides and insecticides. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Secondly, most pads contain polyethylene plastic (the adhesive that’s used to make the pad stick to your underwear), which is an environmentally harmful pollutant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most tampons contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. While the products sit in landfills, these chemicals get soaked up by the earth and are released as pollution into groundwater and air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ None of these above substances should get anywhere near the most sensitive area on our body and neither should they be polluting our fragile earth! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Switching to menstrual cups is amazing!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unlike disposable period products, the menstrual cup such as the @Organicup is reusable for years and it has a minimal impact on the environment compared to tampons and pads. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The lifespan of the cup means potentially saving the environment for the packaging and material waste of more than 2400 pads or tampons per user. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To put that into context, one menstrual cup will save the environment for one truckload of waste in 10 years for every single person who switches to a cup. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ FACTS AND TEXT FROM THE @organicup WEBSITE :) Photo source: @oceanic.global 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #zerowaste #plasticfree #beachcleanup #oceanwarrior #plasticfreeperiods #toxicfree #wellbeing #periods #magic #cycles

• The average lifespan of a plastic bag is 12 minutes. • Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. • That comes out to over one million per minute. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We must make positive changes in our daily lives, inspire others to do the same and demand top-down change from our governments. While improvements are being made, things are not changing fast enough. Together we create a sea of change.

"... Or, to put it another way, the problem is pursuing, on the one planet known to harbour life, a four-planet lifestyle. Regardless of what we consume, the sheer volume of consumption is overwhelming the Earth’s living systems." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - brilliant words from journalist and author George Monbiot ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The #MyEcoResolution campaign is not about swapping one overused resource for another, but about reducing the amount we consume, deepening our awareness of the effects of our actions and empowering one another to make positive changes to our daily lives whilst also taking direct action against the corporations and governments that are perpetuating the environmental crisis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myecoresolution #georgemonbiot #guardian #advayainitiative #savetheplanet #sustainableliving #plasticfree #climateaction #climatechange #bethechange #positivechange #takeaction #zerowaste #extinctionrebellion #fridaysforfuture

Cigarette filters are the largest source of beach pollution! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @magalibellego for spreading awareness about the damaging effects of cigarette butts as well as the environmental impact caused by sanitary products! There are amazing alternatives that are not only sustainable but better for womens' health too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Magali tells us: " #myecoresolution is to: 1. Use my reusable bottle/cup/bag- avoid single-use plastic 2. Zero waste periods (an average woman will use 15000 sanitary products) 3. Get involved with community campaigns and projects 4. Use cardboard filters for rolling cigarettes. Next step: quit (cig butts are the largest source of beach pollution)" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

New evidence is emerging that shows that the human population’s obsession with all things plastic is poisoning one of the world’s natural wonders: coral reefs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Much more than simply an object of beauty, coral reefs are living, breathing ecosystems, teeming with life. Although they occupy less than 0.1 per cent of the world's ocean surface, they provide an essential home for 25 per cent of all marine life; they are also vital for protecting coastal communities, acting as natural barriers from cyclones and rising seas; and 275 million people depend directly on them for their food and livelihoods. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yet coral reefs are under attack on a number of fronts. In the past 30 years, we have lost up to 50 per cent of the world’s corals from the effects of warming sea temperatures due to climate change, overfishing, and a range of land-based activities. However, a major new study has revealed they are also under siege from plastic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a survey of 159 coral reefs in the Asia–Pacific region, published in Science this year, researchers estimate there to be a staggering 11.1 billion plastic items entangled in the corals. This number is projected to increase by a further 40 per cent in just the next seven years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of the 124,000 individual reef-building corals that were assessed, 89 per cent of those smothered in plastic were facing the threat of disease compared with only 4 per cent in corals free from plastic. The plastic debris starves corals of vital oxygen and light, and releases toxins enabling bacteria and viruses to invade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Source: @unenvironment #plasticfreejuly #myecoresolution #ourchoicesmatter #bepartofthesolution #plasticpollution #plasticfree #zerowaste #plastic #savetheplanet #environment #recycle #climatechange #pollution #ocean #beachcleanup #gogreen #sustainability #ecofriendly #plasticfreeoceans #reuse #recycling #earthday #oceanconservation #saynotoplastic #coral #coralreefs
