Momentum!! Grateful to all who have been working for years and recently into the late hours to make a ban on single use plastics happen. We started on this path Sept 2017. Still so much more work to do! And it’s all so much more complex than we initially thought reaching to this level would be.
Now our group’s finished sitting in on city council work session (pictured) for a proposed ordinance to ban polystyrene and other single use plastics like straws. Also in the proposal is a way to reduce waste by encouraging businesses to use durables and give discounts to customers who bring in their own reusables. Possibly fees charged for take out containers, straws, utensils and cups. We’re taking notes on city council members comments and questions. They’ll agreed to set a date for another work session and then a public hearing. We will be there for sure!! Our goal was 2020 plastic straw free Eugene but we want this fast tracked to 2019!! Councilor Emily Semple, who is championing the proposal, said she is seeking an even bolder initiative than just banning plastics, polystyrene, and single use utensils and straws. “I think this is a chance to really make a statement and to make some difference both through the behavioral changes and possibly substituting better materials” that can be reused, she said. #ditchthedisposables #planetorplastic #environment #youthadvocate #bethechange #strawlessoregon #protectwhatyoulove #oceanheroes #suckless #stopsucking #noexcuseforsingleuse #oregon #pnw #strawlessocean @plasticpollutes @lonelywhale @greenpeaceusa @oceanheroeshq @pointbreakfoundation

Next time you swig a margarita or do a tequila shot, you might want to thank a bat. Tequila is made from the agave plant which is pollinated by bats. The flowers open at night and smell like rotting fruit to attract the bats. As the bats swoop in for a drink, they get dusted with agave pollen, which they transport from plant to plant as sexual surrogates. 📸 via @ubersci

Back in Auckland and straight to work 😊 Important music meetings and decisions coming up alongside other ventures, makes me think of this signpost. It's at the bottom of the world indicating the directions and distances it takes to desired destinations. My goals are the same, both personally and professionally the road is tough but I will accomplish what I have to do with all my mind, heart and soul ❤ #youngmusicians #inspired #nevergiveup #explore #summer19 #beauty #peace #environment #nofilter #southisland
GERMANS KNOW THE BENEFITS OF GREEN ROOFS! - During the oil crisis of the 1970s, West Germany explored lightweight adaptations of sod roofs for the purpose of energy conservation. Since that time, extensive green roofs have been lauded for their many benefits as cost-effective solutions for urban environmental problems. By 2005, an estimated 13 million m2roof area in Germany was covered with plants.

The Philippines has become a place of industry.
Factories and buildings are on our landscapes growing like weeds. Trees are depleting, rich and thriving fields and deteriorating, our bodies of water are blackening. The sky are choking on smoke from the conveniences of life. I don’t want our son to live in a world that’s nearing its death. That’s why we are slowly doing our best, as a family, to contribute to the zero-waste movement!

We’ve been charming bees a few years now.....still a hard no for us.
The Container Deposit Scheme has been in effect for 42 years in South Australia. We were the first in Australia to introduce the legislation – ahead of the pack by 35 years!
It has been 10 years since the last review of the scheme and we want to hear from you about what’s next.
💰 Should we raise the refund amount?
🍾 Should more containers be included in the scheme?
♻️ Should containers that present challenges for recycling be phased out?
You can help us continue to reduce litter and protect our environment. Head over to yoursay.sa.gov.au/cds to have your say on the scheme.
