Go Green Tip 24: Refuse disposable plastic & reduce your plastic footprint

There is a garbage patch (2200km long, 800 km wide & 10 meters deep) floating in the North Pacific Gyre, which mainly consists of petroleum-based plastic. The North Pacific Gyre is an area of swirling currents moving in a clockwise pattern that the major ocean currents lead into.

80% of the garbage in our oceans comes from land (household & municipal waste) and 20% from ships. All of the plastics and garbage intentionally & accidentally dumped into our oceans has found its way to the North Pacific Gyre and remains there.

The scary thing is that all the plastic ever created still exists. Plastic can’t biodegrade; plastic photodegrades which means it breaks down into smaller pieces, which is still plastic. In the ocean there is 6 times more plastic than plankton. In the Middle of the North Pacific Gyre the ratio increases to 1000-1.

Every year plastic kills 1.5 million marine animals. Fish and other mammals are ingesting plastic particles at such a rate that soon they will no longer be safe to eat. Next time you’re about to take a disposable plastic item, you’ll take a moment to and consider where the plastic ends up as less than 5% of plastic is recycled.

I’m so grateful for my klear kanteen, that way I can always refuse a plastic water bottle when it’s offered.

this wrecks me.

Not only do the balloons kill creatures and pollute, we are running out of helium. Within 40 years, at the rate we are using it up, there will be no helium left to be extracted on this planet. So no more balloons, but also no more lots of other things like MRIs.

PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD. Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!! If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well. Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc. Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc. Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.

Ah fuck

I looked this up and according to snopes it is actually true.

goddamn it i just want a peaceful existence!

Even though this bird’s stomach was full, it starved to death. It was full of plastic waste.

Scientists estimate that between a quarter and a third of marine plastic pollution comes from the drinks industry. The problem is so severe that up to 85% of Australian marine birds are are estimated to be affected by plastics. Many of them die as a result.

This needn’t be the case. By adding a refundable 10c to each bottle we can dramatically increase recycling and reduce plastic waste. South Australia and the Northern Territory already have schemes which work. Over 80% of bottles are recycled in SA, more than twice the rate of other states.

Despite this, beverage and packaging producers led by Coca Cola have stopped effective government action across Australia and have even taken the Northern Territory Government to court over their system which has already seen increased recycling rates. In the coming weeks Environment Ministers will decide whether to make a recycling refund scheme national. Help make this possible.

Sign and spread this petition.

Fuck Coca Cola.

Great article on Mother Jones about “The Origins of Anti-Litter Campaigns”
According to Heather Rogers’ Gone Tomorrow: The Hidden Life of Garbage, the entire anti-litter movement was initiated by a consortium of industry groups who wanted to divert the nation’s attention away from even more radical legislation to control the amount of waste these companies were putting out. It’s a good story worth retelling.

Oldie but a goodie.
