Sailing the world & sciencing the ship out of it ;-) Keeping watch over the science, scientists & crew on the current voyage of #RVInvestigator is Tegan, Voyage Manager from the Marine National Facility. The Voyage Manager works closely with the Chief Scientist & Ship Master to make sure all on board are looked after & squeeze every drop of science from their time at sea. Tegan has been Voyage Manager on numerous research voyages & began her maritime career as an IR on HMB Endeavour (replica, not original!).
If your portable electronic device is beyond repairing (please try to repair it first!) @sparknz has these bins from @sustainablecoastlines to recycle your electronics! 50 million tons of electronics was expected to be dumped in 2017 - majority to landfill due to economics BUT we’re running out of components needed to make things like touch screens (not to mention the atrocious mining conditions). If you can repair, please recycle. And in future, consider whether you truly need a product and try to purchase a long lasting, reliable product.

David Thorpe and his wife Gail decided to use alternative transportation for one month to determine if selling their car was really the best and most cost-effective choice.
Check out their story!
this year I'm doing my best to be more sustainable.
i thought i'd make a post in case anyone is interested in doing something similar ✨
i'm trying to introduce less plastic into my home as much as possible, recycle more, use cruelty free products (vegan where possible) & overall reduce my carbon footprint.
these are some of the products I've swapped over to:
@whogivesacraptp - toilet paper made with recycled materials while also supporting developing countries to have access to clean water & adequate sanitation
@ecostoreau - laundry detergent & dishwashing liquid, bottle made from recycled sugar cane (biodegradable) and no nasty chemicals
@upper_cup eco-friendly reusable coffee cup - i drink take away coffee every day. accumulating that many paper cups was completely unnecessary & now it's completely absent!
@maze_products compost bin - i have a lot of fruit & vegetable scraps that will breakdown and be used as compost/go into our green bin
@biobag biodegradable plastic bags - breaking down in months rather than decades
i've swapped all of my makeup over to @natiobeauty as they use natural ingredients & don't test on animals
@thankyouaus body wash - 100% of the profits from thankyou products go to people in need. they're also cruelty free & vegan!
@gotoskincare - zoe's products are cruelty free, all natural & bloody brilliant. my skin hasn't felt this good in years
bamboo toothbrushes - better than plastic every time i swap toothbrushes
reusable shopping bag - less plastic bags being used & retained
shampoo bar - using all natural ingredients, doesn't include plastic packaging & works just as well! also supports local business
i'm using homemade spray cleaners (@doterra tea tree oil, water & vinegar) to reduce the use of chemicals used in the home and going down the sink into waterways
i've donated a lot of unopened products to @safestepsfv to support women fleeing domestic violence have access to toiletries.
i've also been vegan for about 6 months, reducing my carbon footprint to 6 pounds of CO2 emissions everyday (instead of 16 pounds of CO2 on an omnivorous diet & 8 pounds on a vegetarian diet).

The fires and flash floods have completely destroyed one of my favorite hiking areas, Oro Vista park. The first picture was taken only a few months ago in May and the second picture was taken last week now in Jan. An entire ecosystem was devastated. There are no more trees, stream, or plants. The frogs, insects, and snakes have gone away. All that is left are sticks and ashy mud. #environment#socalfires#socalfloods
Many falsely associate environmental protection with the left, this could not be more untrue. The left uses the environment as nothing more than an excuse to raise taxes on those who benefit society. They have said before there are no nations, no borders, and thus feel whenever a place has been polluted or used up (such as California) they can simply move on to the next place or nation as the never quenched parasites they are. It’s sad that these people feel they have no mother or fatherland, that life is subjective and the world exists only for their pleasure. Thus it falls to the right, as always, to protect and nurture the land that has provided our ancestors and will provide our posterity with life. However we must not follow the mistakes of the left, raising taxes will do nothing, the answer will be found in newer technologies such as tidal, geothermal, and especially nuclear power. In these areas only lies the success of our motherland and a safe and clean future for mankind. #nationalism#environmentallyfriendly#environmentalscience#environment#future#homeland
Look what arrived in the mail today @compostapak. Being very environmentally conscious in both my work and at home I have been on the search for compostable bags made from corn starch. Unlike the other plastic ones on the market that claim to be biodegrade when in fact all they do is break apart . These bags are made from non Gmo corn so perfect for organic composting.
Did I mention they are a small Australian company! Honestly I feel like I hit the jackpot with these guys!
Oh and if your a dog owner they make doggie bags too.
Keep up the great work @compostapak 👍🏻
Hot chocolate filling me up 💗
Best drink to drink on a warm day or even on a cold one. Hot chocolate fills you up and catches your quench. I like making my hot chocolate by heating up milk by bringing milk to a bubble over the stove, and then pouring in your choice of chocolate powder into the pot. If you want to make it extra special go ahead and add a few marshmallows or cinnamon to the lovely drink. If you want it to be extra milky, you can add frothed milk on the top by heating up milk in the microwave or buying a simple milk frother💗
Dirty Water (#3 ): Plastic Bottled Water and Cost. 💰 Please listen with an open mind 😁 Let's grow together 🌱
Upfront, it IS cheaper to buy single-use plastic water bottles vs. to buy a reusable bottle. However, you can only drink out of a single-use plastic bottle one time, so you're pretty much "nickel and dime"ing your water. Very quickly overtime, the 1 dollar you payed for 1 plastic water bottle multiplies as you continue to purchase more single-use bottled water. 💰Whereas with a reusable bottle, you only spend a bit more money upfront...And you can reuse that water bottle over and over again. 😉 You could try out a stainless steel reusable bottle like mine :) or some other alternatives like glass bottles (like the one in the video), Mason jars, empty glass beverage bottles (like Hubert's lemonade bottles or cream soda that came in glass, etc), or nearly any plastic-free beverage container. 💦Not only will you actually SAVE money overtime, but you'll also help protect the planet, its animals, and the health of all living things.♥️ Just something to think about ☺️ We as consumers have so much power with what we buy. With power comes responsibility. So let's use that power for good and not abuse it. 💙#SaveTheOcean#OneOceanGlobal#BeTheChange To watch the other videos I've made in this mini-series, click on the hashtag #dirtywaterkennaaloha Mahalo and Aloha 🌺
