Have you heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?
Beside global warming the Garbage Patch is a huge threat to marine organisms and human beings.
Do you know that Earth‘s largest landfill is not on land but across the North Pacific Ocean?
The huge amount of plastic produced and used by humans often ends up in the ocean.
Thousands of animals as turtles, sea birds and marine mammals are dying due to plastic.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch especially exists of plastic split up in small islands across the ocean, above and under the water.
Cleaning this mess is hard laborous work!!
And that is why we have to blight this global problem by starting to improve our habits concerning garbage.
In the next post, I would like to make a list of how to avoid creating trash and using plastic.
Leave a comment, If you have any ideas. 🌊
WATCH: How are Indigenous people in Nicaragua defending their land, whilst facing the very real threat of violence? And why are people in Bolivia so concerned about the lack of organic seeds?

This weekend @thisishelencole IBT’s Artistic Director/CEO travels to Rio de Janeiro to present her work Breathe @juntafestivalteresina in Teresina and @festivalpanorama in Rio, Brazil.
In Breathe Helen has gathered the sounds of the bodies of 76 people from across the world each dancing a dance of resistance.
These echoes will be joined by the sounds of new people in Brazil. Dancing as hard and as fast as they can as Brazil is poised at a moment of fear and political upheaval.

❥ No picture of a sheep, a dog or an alpaca this time. This time I want to post a picture showing the other part that comes with being an animal lover: the call for justice. Have you ever heard of the Cube of Truth? It's such a simple yet such a strong way of raising awareness for animal rights. All we do is stand there, displaying videos that where taken in vivisection labs, farms, animal transports and slaughterhouses. And we try to answer the questions they raise amongst the public. And my oh my, questions are raised.. No one is forced to watch. No one is forced to engage in conversations. We're not pushing our 'vegan extremism' on anyone. We just want to give everyone the opportunity to base their dietary decisions on true footage, not on the sheisse that companies are selling us. Cause my oh my, they're sure selling us sheisse.. What do you think? Would you dare to watch? ❥ •••••• 📷 Thanks for the picture @san.the.earthling ! ◀️◀️ Check him out, he's trying to drive change too!
