A few youths from Standing Rock started the #NODAPL movement, and now the Dakota Access Pipeline is, well, denied access. The oil corporations might be able to bully our PM with #EconomyTho, but the future evidently has massive trading value when people stand up and make people wake up. With 12% of Millennials self-identifying as vegan, who knows what a #ClimateVegan movement could do? www.mercyforanimals.org/were-winning-6-signs-that-veganism-is-taking over

💙 One Green Planet 💙 ・・・ The amount of trash we produce and use has risen over the past 30 years. 300 million tons of plastic is produced every year and sadly a staggering 85 percent is not recycled. This means the trash will be sent to landfills and then more than likely, will end up polluting our oceans. In fact, it’s estimated that around 8.8 million tons of plastic trash end up in the world’s oceans ever year. Tragically, it is estimated that around 700 marine species are faced with extinction thanks to the threat that plastic poses them in the form of entanglement, ingestion, and pollution. The hermit crab in the photo has resorted to using a discarded bottle as a shell – likely the result of being forced to adjust to life surrounded by our trash. 270,000 tons of plastic are currently estimated to be floating just on the surface of our oceans. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (already estimated to be the size of Texas) in the Pacific Ocean is growing by the year, with truly frightening implications for marine and human life.
While this photo is shocking, it is important to remember the role that we can play in reducing the amount of plastic and trash that enters our oceans. We have a choice to use disposable plastics on a daily basis or choose to use a reusable, sustainable alternative. Together, we can make a difference!
