"The tan lines may fade but the memories will last forever". Honestly spending time at Bubbles Dive Resort was so eye opening in terms of the beautiful wildlife around us but also the damage that humans can do to it...but also how we can help. I gained my PADI Open Water qualification and although I was able to see stunning marine life in a way that I had never seen it before, I could also see evidence of coral bleaching and pollution. I also volunteered with the turtle conservation team and managed to witness the laying and hatching of eggs which was so beautiful to watch, but also learnt first hand about the challenges that the little guys go through just to reach maturity. Human pollution with plastic bags looking like jellyfish and global warming effecting the sex of the turtles that hatch are not helping their odds at all. In the short period of time that I was there, I have honestly learnt so much and it has changed my views of the world in a completely different way!
It really makes you think when you see photos like this! More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day – a total of about 22 billion last year. I am privledged to be apart of a very worthy cause, so worthy infact that in just 5 months we have helped STOP 6 million plastic water bottles ending up in photo's just like these.... to know that I am apart of helping the environment now and for future generations to come fills my heart. I smile ear to ear at the thought of what impact another 5 months..... 5 years.... 50 years will do.... #cleanoceans#landfill#futuregeneration#plastic#future#pollution#greatcause#billions#millions#worthycause#water#drinking

Lets talk air quality.
"A study published in the October 2007 issue of American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine... the researchers identified 3,503 persons who clean their homes and who were free from asthma at the beginning of the survey. The results showed that 42 percent of the participants who use cleaning sprays at least weekly experience asthma symptoms, such as wheezing, or were using asthma medication. The most commonly used products were glass-cleaning, furniture and air- refreshing sprays."
"In cleaning a small, moderately well ventilated bathroom, the team found that a person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off a shower stall could inhale three times the 'acute one- hour exposure limit' for a particular glycol ether, as established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment."
Something else to worry about is children: //
"Children are at a particular risk for health problems from inhailing VOCs, because they breathe in more air with respect to their body mass than adults and thus have greater exposure to indoor environmental pollutants."
This includes our homes and their schools. //
We can't control everything. But we can control what is in our homes. We can control what we allow to be sprayed into the air, what we wash our dishes, counters, clothes, showers, and bedding with. We can control the air quality in our homes. //

But.... since most of Oregon is burning u can't see anything. Next time :/ #mtshasta#california#oregonfire#pollution#fire#mountains

First post in a long time but I think it's safe to say humans can really fuck shit up. Water in Bangalore has been polluted so much with toxic waste, that it's now surrounding a city, trapping residents, and threatening lives of many people around with lethal foam. All because they didn't want to regulate or control their waste. It may seem like we can't change bodies of water that stretch miles apart, but even the lake I live next to is so green, I can't see 4 feet deep because of all the pollution. Stop denying shit people, no one wants to see shit like this, you're just too scared to face the problem. #bangalore#pollutionfree#pollution#climatechange#enviroment#climate#wild#toxic#science#denial#bullshit
Pollution is a huge contributor to skin aging. The best way to fight the effects of pollution? Antioxidants! They protect skin against the damage free radicals inflict on the cells in your body, including your skin. ⠀
Wherever forests have not been mowed down, wherever the animal is recessed in their quiet protection, wherever the earth is not bereft of four-footed life - that to some humans is an 'unbroken wilderness.' But for us there was no wilderness, nature was not dangerous but hospitable, not forbidding but friendly. Our faith sought the harmony of man with his surroundings; the other sought the dominance of surroundings.
For us, the world was full of beauty; for the other, it was a place to be endured until he went to another world.
But we were wise. We knew that man's heart, away from nature, becomes hard.
~ Chief Luther Standing Bear -------------- How can we be so arrogant? The planet is, was, and always will be stronger than us. We can't destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing. Why don't they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?
~ Paulo Coelho, -------------- The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.
~ Pope John Paul II
Regram: @envagency: Just because they flush, doesn't make them flushable! Sewer pipe blockages result in overflows which send sewage and waste into our rivers and seas. #binitforbeaches#pollution @surfersagainstsewage
found this #fishing#pollution on the #river today, and if it was not a regular thing it would still be annoying, but since I see this type of #trash frequently it reinforces a belief that too many people are lazy #@$holes who just suck.
Notice how all the extra line is neatly coiled inside, packed and ready for easy carry out. So why someone would be such a lazy pos and leave it along the river.... I don't know.
Have a good time. Get outside. Party. Smile and laugh. Just also respect the gifts we have and clean up after yourself.
