Around the world, an estimated 100,000 marine mammals die each year when they become trapped in plastic or eat it, perhaps mistaking it for a tasty treat.
But, considering the sheer size that plastic pollution has now reached, this burning issue influences practically every organism linked to our oceans.

Orcas launching themselves onto the shore with intentions of making a sea lion pup part of their next meal 😮
Fun Fact : In 1976, two male orcas taught the whole population how to successfully catch sea lion pups off the beach. A technique that is now transferred from generation to generation !

🌊✈️This plane belonged to Pablo Escobar and was used to traffic drugs. Crashed near Normans Cay in north Exumas. Amazing views inside and outside of the water.
Weekend #mood. This is a baby harp seal, a true seal that lives in the north Atlantic and Arctic oceans. This species gets its common name from the harp-shaped markings on the back of the otherwise darkly colored adults, but young pups are solid white.

Always look forward to a box of #thorntons#thorntonschocolate but this time not so much. They don't taste as chocolatey or as bitter as dark choc should............ Disappointed and double disappointed to look at the ingredients and find PALM oil?! In chocolate? Almost as bad as finding it in ambrosia custard at weekend 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈 come on @thorntonsuk what is going on? I won't be buying again 🙄🙄🙄🤔😢 #savetheenvironment#palmoil
One of my goals this year is to save money and try and be more environmentally friendly. So I went and got myself a coffee machine. I literally buy coffee every day so this is going to make a huge difference! Plus it’s an amazing pre workout!! 😂😂 #preworkout#savetheenvironment#coffeecoffeecoffee#yummy
This is... this is our sun setting over our beautiful planet 🌎, don’t let this sight disappear by using wasteful items! Use reusable products to help save the environment 🌴🌱🌿🍀

#10YearChallenge: Did you know it takes an average disposable coffee cup up to 20 years to break down? Think of all of the coffee cups we put into the landfills of Tennessee each year.
We can do better. Don't trash our future, use reusable mugs. And most importantly, recycle!

Join #SoFo Friday, January 18 at 7 PM for Celestial Shadows: The January 2019 Lunar Eclipse
Astronomy Lecture & Celestial Observing. On the night of January 20-21, the Full Moon will pass into earth’s shadow and turn from a radiant white to an eerie red. The eclipse will begin at approximately 10:30 PM on January 20, reach totality by about 1:00 AM the morning of January 21, and conclude almost 3 hours later. It’s easy for everyone to see the eclipse but, with simple equipment and little background knowledge, the spectacle gets even better. Join us for an evening dedicated to the Moon: from ancient science to the latest discoveries from the surface. The event is FREE.
I'm sure many of us are guilty of taking away coffee from cafes and coffee shops to work! Why not get yourself a nice or cool looking tumbler that suits your personality, so you can:
1) slowly slip your coffee as the insulation keeps your coffee hot
2) protect the environment by using less take away materials especially plastic and Styrofoam
3) sometimes even save a couple of cents as some shops gives a slight discount when you purchase drinks with your own tumbler!
So get yourself a tumbler this weekend when you're out shopping! It's really another simple step to a sustainable environment, and pocket.
Little steps like this goes a long way.
10 years later, you will make a very big substantial change just with this little change in your everyday life.
Did you know that Wind turbines can reduce carbon dioxide output by 125 million metric tons? EDF is working to fight for policy that will create not only more wind turbines, but less carbon emissions - creating a safer, healthier future.

Some AMAZING pro-environmental protest signs created by students in Ms. Baillargeon’s Spanish class and some students in the Art Department!
These students have done a FABULOUS job in creating awareness of our environment. Let’s all join them and let everyone know to #SaveTheEnvironment and create a better world for everyone 🌎 (c) @johnstonheightsvisualart

We really want to give reusable nappies a go this time round for our little boy. We are lucky enough that a friend has gifted us all these cute The Pop-in dream dri by Close Parent ,ones and has more if we need/want them.Plus this Bambooty wet bag. 😍
Almost all disposable nappies are not biodegradable and have such a devastating effect on the environment. .
We also hope that we can save some pennies by switching to reusable (we certainly have already as they were gifted/preloved, instead of brought new.) Most importantly we hope it will be gentler and and safer for baby due to no chemicals such as dioxins and Sodium Polyacrylate etc. .
So we will certainly be giving these a try and hopefully they work for us.
We are also looking for reusable baby/wet wipes and wet bags. If you have any recommendations can you send them our way please. Tag them in this post as I want to buy some soon thank you xx

I did a blog this week on being a conscious traveler in Bali.
I started it with this quote from Margaret Mead, as it was all about being an eco-friendly traveler, And that we all CAN make a difference.
But this can be true for any just cause. If enough people believe in it and can work TOGETHER anything is possible!

Recent Breakthroughs have deemed the plant based diet as the most sustainable way to feed humans and save our planet.
Here at RJ we do not advocate any diet, we simy ask "How well is your current eating habits working out for you?" The truth is eating plant foods from time to time can be very rejuvenating and cleansing, especially for THE LIVER - Check out Paul Pitchfords Healing With Whole Foods.
