Take a look around, odds are you're surrounded by plastic.
It's in our kitchens and in our bedrooms, it keeps our food fresh and our medicine safe.
It is, in many ways, a miracle product. Cheap to produce and virtually indestructible.
Yet plastic's blessings are also a curse. That water bottle we use once and throw away will be with us for generations.
There are campaigns to limit this plastic plague, with bans on bags and straws, and yet around the world, it continues to pile up, seeping into our rivers and streams and turning our oceans into a vast garbage dump.
But as we first reported in December, one mop-haired young Dutchman has come up with a plan which he claims will save our seas.
His name is Boyan Slat, he has no formal training, but his much-hyped, multi-million dollar device has made him something of a sensation.
So we decided to see what all the fuss was about.

The amazon rainforest has been on fire for about 3 weeks.
10% of all biodiversity on the planet live in the Amazon rainforest, and 20% of all oxygen is produced by the rainforest.
This beautiful biome is the lungs of earth. A large amount of the carbon dioxide put out is absorbed by the Amazon rainforest. It is one of the most important ecosystems on the planet.
The smoke is so intense that you can see the fire from space, and it’s caused a daytime blackout in São Paulo. people are unsure whether it was caused by agricultural activity or deforestation, but either way, it’s devastating. this fire has caused a smoke layer that covers 1.2 million square miles (over a third of the united states in comparison), forcing amazonas to declare a state of emergency. this type of loss of biodiversity is catastrophic to the planet’s ecosystem and it’s only going to get worse if something isn’t done about this.
Most fires started in the amazon rainforest has been caused by people. by greed. by disregard for all life aside from their own. every single one. there are no natural processes that cause fires in the amazon due to the humidity, but because of climate change, there has been an increase in the frequency and intensity of droughts, making it easier for ranchers to set the forest on fire. forest fires in the amazon rainforest are up 82% from last year. scientists have been warning that if the rainforest continues burning at this rate, it’ll pass a “tipping point” in which it won’t be able to recover.
the map shows the extension of the fires currently happening in the state of rondônia and in bolivia. people are dying. animals are dying. and the brazilian government is doing absolutely nothing to save this ecosystem.

"KALIAMONG" (dalam bahasa Bajau Maratua) Ketam kenari atau Birgus latro, atau disebut kepiting kelapa, merupakan artropoda darat terbesar di dunia. Ketam ini merupakan jenis umang-umang yang sangat maju dalam hal evolusi. Kesukaannya adalah buah kelapa.
Ketam ini mampu mengupas buah kelapa dengan capitnya yang sangat kuat untuk memakan isinya. Ia juga disebut dalam bahasa Inggris terrestrial hermit crab atau kelomang darat .
Ukuran si raksasa ini cukup beragam, namun menurut banyak referensi beratnya bisa mencapai 4 kg, dengan panjang tubuh hingga 40 cm, dan bentangan kaki sekitar 200 cm. Hewan jantan umumnya lebih besar daripada betina. Umurnya dapat mencapai 30-60, ketam kenari mampu memanjat pohon (seringkali kelapa) secara vertikal hingga setinggi 6 m.
Di Indonesia penyebarannya terpisah-pisah, contohnya disekitar pulau Kalimantan (pulau maratua berau kaltim).
Menurut kriteria IUCN Red List, sekarang tidak terdapat cukup data untuk memutuskan ketam kenari sebagai "spesies terancam", oleh karena itu ia sementara terdaftar sebagai DD (data deficient/data kurang), menandakan bahwa hal ini perlu diperbarui. Namun Pembangunan daerah pantai pada banyak pulau mengurangi habitat ketam ini. Di beberapa daerah populasinya dilaporkan menurun karena penangkapan berlebih. Ketam kenari dilindungi dibeberapa areal, dengan ukuran minimum untuk ditangkap serta periode perkembangbiakan yang dilindungi.

My daughter is starting preschool in a couple of weeks and their list of what she needs makes my blood boil. Plastic bags, ziploc bags, kleenex etc etc etc - well of course nothing disposable was EVER going to make it into her back pack so I came up with more eco friendly options. Here is our first one! Instead of ziploc bags for accidents I found these @bumkinsbaby wet bags. They are washable, stain resistant and cute! Really hoping when I inform her teachers that we are zero waste which is why we have these instead they don’t look at me like I have a third head 🤦🏼♀️

【Research on Sunday Rio】
I did research of tourists' garbage from downstream of Akigawa riv. = the confluence with the Tama riv. on Sinday.
As expected, there was a lot of garbage, and there were many places that were quite dirty.
And there was also a surprisingly beautiful place.
Interestingly, there were many supermarket shopping bags that were different from the usual places (upstream).
Not sure, but it may be from a nearby store.
There was a lot of awareness this time, too.
Unfortunately, I didn't have time to collect the trash.
At last, the phantom waterfall appeared, so the survey was stopped.
Vacances d'été tous les jours. 毎日が夏休み
I wish the beauty of the river forever.(^_^)v

“Creating a community of like-minded enthusiasts around us offers many important advantages, and the benefits of building a network of excited, experienced and active divers are many and valuable. Because whether it’s one buddy or 12, we’re in it together. And most times, more truly is merrier.” Source: https://www.scubadiving.com/how-to-build-community-dive-buddies
At Blue Endeavors, the most impactful aspect of our mission is to build a community of local divers and ocean advocates. Blue Endeavors members join our organization because they want to learn about scuba diving and through scuba diving, they gain more knowledge about our oceans and the critters that live in our oceans. They then get a better understanding of what they can do to help preserve and save our oceans. So join Blue Endeavors TODAY if you are interested in learning more about what you can do to save our oceans. (www.blue-Endeavors.org)

I’m going to be starting a little docu - series of some sort. Kind of, it’s either going to be in my story’s, live videos or instagram videos. Each section will have a couple or more mini series on each of the topics. At the moment im in the process of putting all the information and bundling it together into the series and their own individual categories but they all I’ll be referring to one thing, what the hell happened to the planet and how can we all improve our day to day lives, providing a safe and hopefully more sustainable and environmentally positive impact for future growth. This will entail subjects such as currency, the cycle and the food ladder. I really really need to get the message out that we, humans, are not the most powerful, smartest, creatures on this earth and the earth wasn’t made for us we were made for it, we aren’t supposed to be on top. Yes we have the advantages of communication in language and talking form, we are able to move in ways most other animals aren’t, and we’re highly intelligent (as we believe) but we don’t even know how animals process thoughts. We just over time gradually took over and used all means of force to take our “rightful” territory (wars, land, countries, claiming things etc) when we were supposed to just inhabit the earth along with the animals, making working together in a way to better the earth, just like most other living creature do - bees, spiders, plants etc. as humans we’ve let ourselves down, we could’ve had a beautiful world and a beautiful life. These days some people wouldn’t even know wha it’s like for the power to go out. #earthchild #gogreen #slutforsustainability #savetheearth #zerowaste #earthregeneration #environmentalist #fortheloveofnature #gogreensavegreen #saveourocean #climatechange #pixie #elf

What gets me everyday is I’m going through life knowing that my future isn’t really too bright. No matter what I achieve or what I do. Because the planet is going to crumble, it’s happening right now, but soon it’s going to be so bad that we probably have made every species of life on this earth become extinct. I’m so pissed that every person in my family, generations and generations, all the people who loved poorly or who “struggled” in life because they weren’t up to societies standards and they didn’t amount to anything because they didn’t accumulate a large amount of money, or work their whole lives, or maybe they did but never had nice things, the people who just felt like shit their whole lives because they didn’t know what they wanted to do. At the moment I’m about to graduate and I’m supposed to be selecting 1 single university course that will later on in life cost be above $60,000, atleast. But that’s okay because when I pursue that, for 4 years I’ll be sitting around while people who are out side making money and destroying our home while doing it. Greed has taken over and it’s a shame because it’s a horrible thing, we have caused the extinction of ourselves, and everything else. But it wasn’t our right to do that. We are greedy and stole the chance and opportunity for a truely rich, life. Money doesn’t count.

This was going to be an "Instagram vs reality" post where you had to swipe to this pic as the reality of what Lombok is like... BUT on second thought I felt this picture needed to be front and centre even if it disrupted my beachy looking profile theme!
Also, the beautiful beach pics I've been posting ARE the reality of Lombok!
That's the thing, you see, Lombok is beautiful with a touch of ugly. Here's the ugly. ☝️ This is in Kuta village. Just around the corner and up the road you can sit inside a beautifully decorated cafe over looking a pool sipping on your beetroot latte while you nosh an organic smoothie bowl. Both of these realities exist side by side on this island.
The beaches we spent our days on were clean and there wasn't any rubbish in the water (something which you can expect to find over on the other side of Lombok Strait, in Bali). But in town and amongst the warungs on some of the quieter beaches, it's dirty! (And a little dusty, especially at the end of the dry season).
The main tourist strip part of town has been kept pretty clean but 100m away, its a little less pretty! 😔 This was the worst we saw on our trip. .
This is the reality of an island with little environmental awareness amongst the local people. They just don't know any better! As an island that relies on tourism so heavily, and with so much undeveloped land and so many beautiful beaches, I really hope that the Indonesian government starts to do more to look after this beautiful land and ocean which has so much potential!
We as tourists need to to do our bit by refilling our water bottles where we can, bringing our own non plastic straw alternatives and not accepting single use plastic if you can go without. Also #take3forthesea as often as you can! Take more if you can! ❤️
Don't let this put you off from visiting this beautiful island. Just go there as an informed traveller ready to contribute, even if it's only in a small way. ✌️

Went to White Sand Beach today, and happy to see that there was not so much plastic trash on the sand.
And one of the plastic bottles that was there at least served a purpose.
I was able to use it to make this video of a couple of beautiful Blue Bottles.
They are funny creatures, not jellyfish even though they look like it.
They are actually a colony of four different polyps!
One that enables it to float, one that catches food, one that digests the food, and one that is in charge of reproduction.
Isn’t nature incredible!
Oh, and I disposed of the plastic bottle in the right way of course.
Melali ke Pantai Pasir Putih hari ini, dan saya senang melihat bahwa tidak ada begitu banyak sampah plastik di atas pasir.
Dan salah satu botol plastik yang ada di sana setidaknya memiliki tujuan. Saya dapat menggunakannya untuk membuat video dari si cantik Blue Bottles Jellyfish.
Mereka adalah makhluk yang lucu, yang ternyata bukan ubur-ubur meskipun mereka terlihat seperti itu.
Mereka sebenarnya adalah koloni dari empat polip berbeda!
Satu yang memungkinkannya mengapung, yang menangkap makanan, yang mencerna makanan, dan yang terakhir bertugas untuk reproduksi.
Alam ini luar biasa, bukan?! Nah oh, tentu saja saya membuang botol plastik ini dengan cara yang benar.. #mudfishproject #bluebottlejellyfish #ocean #bali #indonesia #candidasa #saveourocean #trivia #video #beauty #beach #noplastic
