The 24-meter-long (78 feet) vessel resembles a large houseboat and uses a curved barrier to catch waste floating downstream. The trash, much of it plastic, is directed to the “mouth” of the barge — which operates autonomously and silently — from where it rolls up a conveyor belt and is dropped into dumpsters. Apparently, the Interceptor is capable of collecting up to 50 tons of waste a day.⁣ ⁣ 80 percent of plastic waste that ends up in the sea floats down just 1,000 rivers worldwide.⁣ ⁣ 💭 What do you think about this?⁣ ⁣ ♻️ Follow @makeplastichistory ⁣⁣⁣♻️ Follow @makeplastichistory ♻️ Follow @makeplastichistory #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #PlasticfreeJuly #plasticfreecoastlines #plasticfreeforthesea #plasticfreelife #plasticfreefoodie #plasticfreefood #plasticfreeseas #plasticfreeocean #plasticfreeoceans #plasticfreecayman #PlasticFreeProduce #plasticfreetuesday #plasticfreesea #plasticfreehawaii #plasticfreeAugust #plasticfreeseptember #plasticfreeshipping #plasticfreebrisbane #plasticfreestyling #plasticfreetuesdayinaction #plasticfreeUAE #plasticfreerevolution #plasticfreepledge #plasticfreepets #plasticfreeworld #plasticfreeyyc #plasticfreeperiods #plasticfreeparadise

🌿 A plastic cup can take 50-80 years to decompose. . . 🌿Since 1950s, around 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide. And only 9% of it has been recycled. . . 🌿73% of beach litter worldwide is plastic. . . 🌿Plastic is killing more than 1.1 seabirds and animals every year. . . 🌿Over the past 50 years, world plastic production has doubled. Now is the time to make the switch, say no to plastic products. Switch to sustainable choices. Sure, plastic straws are cheap, but the cost to the environment, you can’t put a price on that. #sustainableliving #noplasticwaste #gogreen #plasticstrawfree #environment #eortheindia #saynotoplastic #plasticfreepledge #eortheforearth #maketheswitch #motherearth #biodegradable #sustainabledevelopment

How can the tourism sector reduce plastic in Cyprus? 'Closing the Circle: Opportunities and Challenges in the Tourism Industry' was a MedBlue event that took place last week in Paralimni, bringing together tourism businesses and the Department of Environment to look at ways of reducing plastic.

Buying plastic-wrapped or packaged fruits and vegetables can be convenient, but unfortunately it creates plastic waste. Instead, look out for loose fruit and vegetables in your local grocery store, or head to a farmers market or organic store where plastic packaging is less often used.⠀ #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving #PlasticfreeJuly #plasticfreecoastlines #plasticfreeforthesea #plasticfreelife #plasticfreefoodie #plasticfreefood #plasticfreeseas #plasticfreeocean #plasticfreeoceans #PlasticFreeProduce #plasticfreetuesday #plasticfreesea #plasticfreeseptember #plasticfreeshipping #plasticfreestyling #plasticfreetuesdayinaction #plasticfreerevolution #plasticfreepledge #plasticfreepets #plasticfreeworld #plasticfreeyyc #plasticfreeperiods #plasticfreeparadise #zerowastephilippines #ecocareph

There are perhaps as many different ways to wash up as people on the planet. My low plastic collection of washing up tools is THIS 🙌 It began in 2013, with an order of this wooden scrubbing brush with replacement heads from @steenbergsltd I'd been trying to reduce my plastic footprint for some time but was disturbed that when I used a scouring sponge (standard supermarket-style sponge with a green scourer layer on top) I could see tiny green particles being washed down the drain- MICROPLASTICS 😱 👋👎 I gradually started to replace my cleaning tools with plastic free alternatives. . The original scrubbing brush (pic 1) is still going 7 years on & I have replaced the head about once per year. I ❤️ this brush & have never looked back. Like many plastic free solutions it's more expensive than a plastic brush but lasts so much longer that I've definitely saved £ as well as plastic! . Pic 2  For my husband who prefers a hand held sponge 💁🏻‍♂️ A loofah (cucumber family & can be grown almost anywhere) so a good renewable material. The a 100% cotton srcubby cloth which is surprisingly effective for scouring. . Next up (pic 3) a more heavy duty selection. A vegetable brush which is pretty handy for scrubbing muddy veg. I almost never peel things as so much goodness in the skin, less waste & saves time! The other 2 are pot scrubbers for baked on food. I use for dislodging debris from cast iron skillets before wiping down with oil. . Pic 4- copper scourer which will get rid of ANY baked on food, burnt pots, no matter how stubborn. Not for non-stick or scratchables 🙅🏼‍♀️ The other is my mum's tip- net fruit bags (avoid normally but sometimes get brought to my home) bunched up & use for scouring non-stick & worktops. . Last- my possibly excessive collection of bottle brushes… If I had to pick I'd stick with: 1. The straw brush (not just for straws but can be used to clean any tiny books & crannies.) 2. The very long thin bottle brush as it's the only one that fits into my kombucha, oat milk, oil, wine, refill bottles with very thin necks 🍾🍼 3. The wooden bottle brush. Is the most satisfying to use on more opnecked containers 🍶

You know the phrase Reduce, Reuse, Recycle ♻️ - They are ordered in this way for a reason! - 1. Reducing the number of things you buy is the best way to help the environment, save money, and eliminate waste. 2. Reusing things you already have for another purpose is the next best thing! For example, what I did with an old pair of jeans—I had reused them in a different way, repurposing them into a skirt! 3. Recycle is the last in the list, but still very important! A recent study quoted by National Geographic shows that of all plastics produced globally, only nine percent gets recycled. The vast majority—79 percent—is accumulating in landfills or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter. - Imagine how much less plastic trash we’d accumulate if we followed the above! - Do you have easy access to recycling? Do you reduce the amount of stuff you buy to produce less trash?

⁣The whole world is talking about climate change (FINALLY)!⠀ ⠀ Check out this quick and easy jargon buster to try and make sense of it all.⠀ ⠀ 🌿Climate Change⠀ A long-term shift in global weather patterns or average temperatures. Rising temperatures (global warming) can lead to extreme weather such as droughts, sea level rises and retreating glaciers. Caused by the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.⠀ ⠀ 🌿Greenhouse gases⠀ Gases such as carbon dioxide and methane absorb solar energy and keep heat close to Earth's surface, rather than letting it escape into space. Greenhouse gas emissions have risen due to direct and indirect human activities, primarily the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.⠀ ⠀ 🌿Carbon footprint⠀ The amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere that is produced by human activity. It is generally calculated to measure the emissions produced by products, services, individuals, companies or nations.⠀ ⠀ 🌿Circular economy⠀ A circular economy is based on the philosophies of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. ⠀ 👉‘make, use, reuse, remake, recycle’👈⠀ ⠀ It encourages zero waste and replaces the linear model.⠀ 👉‘take, make, use, dispose and pollute’👈⠀ ⠀ 🌿Greenwashing⠀ The practice of making an unproven or ambiguous claim about the environmental benefits of a product, service, technology or company practice. Greenwashing can make a company appear to be more environmentally friendly than it really is. ⠀ ⠀ 🌿Biodegradeable v Compostable⠀ Biodegradable items refer to any material which breaks down and decomposes naturally in the environment, such as cardboard and even some plastics. There is no set time limit for degradation assigned to this term unfortunately.⠀ ⠀ Compostable goods are derived from organic matter which breaks down and doesn’t leave toxic residue behind because it’s already organic. The end product has many beneficial uses including fertilising and improving soil.⠀ 🍐⠀ #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteaustralia #plasticfreelife #plasticfreeseas #plasticfreepledge #plasticfreeworld

Closed. . Help the seas and help the bees! This week's giveaway is all about reducing plastic pollution and increasing the number of bee-friendly plants in our gardens. By doing both these things, we can create a better environment for everyone and everything. 🌎 Food packaging is a worrying source of plastic for many of us. Even when you make efforts to buy food with no plastic packaging, storing it when you get home and protecting leftovers can mean turning to plastic options like the dreaded clingfilm. 🌎 This week, The Plastic Free Shop have sent us some gorgeous zero waste bowl covers and produce bags – plastic waste and food waste tackled in one. They've also thrown in some seedballs with different mixes to create better habitats not just for the bees, but for bats, beetles and birds, too. 🌎 For a chance to win, follow us, follow @theplasticfreeshop and share your #plasticfreepledge with us in the comments below. We just want to know one way you plan to reduce your plastic waste! 🌎 We'll announce the winner on Friday 7th Feb before starting the next giveway

Fruits and veggies give me the feelings 🍎🥕🍌🥦 #eatplants . Please notice this produce is free of plastic. That’s right...because whenever I use plastic, I feel like an asshole. . It’s been nearly four weeks. Only four, little itty bitty teeny tiny weeks since I left the eco-community that I lived in this past year. And I’m sad to say, in this teensy blimp of a time, I have consumed more plastic than I have in the past several months (@pachamama_eco_community ...you the real MVP in recycling and waste reduction). . The concrete jungle, is also the portal to plastic. . Plastic: A human marvel created in 1856 that is so durable it can take hundreds of years to break down. . In the wake of the plastic tsunami that hit the world in the 19th century, our waterways and landscapes lay pillaged with pollution. . Our waterways, Our landscapes. Our precious fundamentals of life. . Sooo, in order to do my best for this planet that I love oh soo dearly 🌎💚 — I’m committing to commencing a plastic free journey!! 🎉 I will do my very, verrrry best to refuse plastic wheneverr possible. I’m bound to encounter unforeseen difficulties in this endeavor, but the earth is my home, mother, and lover and I want to treat her riiight 😘 . ...stay tuned for more updates on my #plasticfreepledge #wastefree #zerowastelifestyle

We thought we'd share some more information about how @cityofyarra's Proudly Plastic Free Yarra Campaign we shared yesterday works. . Firstly, and importantly, it came about after a local community group YCAN delivered a petition to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used in Yarra’s takeaway food outlets to council and asked it to implement a plastic free campaign. . Businesses in the area pledge to go Proudly Plastic Free and council helps them switch their packaging away from single use to reusable products by encouraging their customers to bring their own takeaway containers and coffee cups. . After assessing what they are already doing to reduce single use plastic, council helps each business come up with and implement further actions that make the most sense for that business. . Businesses benefit through: 🔸 free promotion by the council 🔸 decreased packaging costs over time as more customers bring their own containers 🔸 attracting new customers who want to support a business making a difference 🔸 reducing their carbon footprint and contribution to landfill 🔸 helping to keep local spaces clean from litter. . There are so many ways businesses can replace, implement, and encourage reusables! Often it just takes the will to do it. . #reusables #plasticfree #zerowaste #proudlyplasticfree #plasticfreepledge #zerowastebusiness #reusablenation #zerowastevictoria #cityofyarra #zerowasteaustralia

Tried and tested. It's the bee's knees!! Glass bottle, and refills sent in recyclable, eco-friendly packaging. You bite it and with a wet toothbrush, go to town! It slightly foams and leaves teeth smooth and sparkling clean. I only wish I'd tried it sooner!

Some of you may know we are from a big family and all of us love the coast, the sea and all the goodness it brings. We are also well aware of our vital need to protect the sea for all its wondrous effects on our planet but also so we can enjoy it for years to come 🛶 🏊 🏄 . . Trips to the coast often go hand in hand with beach cleans. In my brothers @samjoney5 Post, see pictures, he is reminded of times when he has snorkeled along side plastic 'fish'. The 2nd pic is just an example of one the beach cleans they have completed. . . Make this a habit, make a pledge...take plastic from the beach everytime you go, fill a bucket, a bag, anything to take it away with you. I promise it feels good 💚. Our 4 little'uns now do this as a habit, no questions asked, no encouragement needed, they just discuss what they have found and usually ask questions why. This is setting a foundation for them to understand their impact on their world. . Go do it, save our seas 💚🌱🌍🦀🌊🌟 . . #saveourplanet #saveouroceans #saveourseas #plasticfree #2minbeachclean #surfersagainstsewage #plasticfreepledge #plasticfreechampions #2minutesbeachclean #2minbeachcleanup #2minsbeachcleanups #beachcleanup #beachlife #surfing

🐠Newborn fish are mistaking tiny bits of trash for food. The ocean is full of plastic. The problem is, once plastic is in the ocean, there is no easy way to remove them. 🍬Want to stop plastic polluting the oceans? You can start with a small change and always carry a reusable bag with you to the shop or buy products without a plastic package. ___________________________ Here at @benublue we're creating value from waste and turning plastic pollution into new sustainable petrochemicals 🏝

I was proud to represent @zero.waste.london and @zero.waste.mindset yesterday as one of the speakers at a Plastic Free City breakfast event hosted by Rothschild and the City of London Corporation, alongside the wonderful @hellothisiscarl and Mel Fisher. It was really inspiring to learn about the efforts of the City of London are making with their Plastic Free Pledge project for businesses and hear more about the awesome work that @futureplanetrocks are doing with their events and @zerowastegoods are doing with their Christmas markets. It was also great to have the opportunity to share the zero waste message and highlight the work of the amazing zero waste community here in London. #zerowastebusinesses #zerowastecities #plasticfree #plasticfreepledge #getangry

Did you know that you CAN’T recycle a disposable coffee cup that you get from a coffee shop? - I didn’t realize this until a year ago, but those paper cups have a plastic liner that prevents them from becoming recyclable. - If you can get coffee at work, I encourage you to do that! Unless all they have are k-cups….then make your own coffee from home 😊 K-cups aren’t recyclable either! Another fun fact, the inventor of the Keurig later regretted his invention due to the very fact they aren’t recyclable! - How do you make or drink your coffee?

Sunshine, home made kombucha, DIY beeswax wraps, Kundalini Yoga & clothes swaps... that to me is a ‘mums group’ done right! 🙏🏻💛 #ourvillage #thegoodlife I’ve added the instructions that @jennaduxbury_ hunted down for beeswax wraps in case you want to give them a go. 🐝 For our first attempt we weren’t too shabby! 🙊
