Dear ones, we are crafting a workshop for the Autumn about living an eco friendly life. We're planning to do an earth themed yoga flow class followed by an informal chat/workshop on the many ways we can make positive changes in our daily lives to lessen our impact on the environment. There will be a big emphasis on how to ditch plastic in particular and also looking at how our care for the earth is actually part of the 8 limbs of yoga - Ahimsa (non-harmfulness). Whilst we're putting this together is there any requests of what you'd like us to cover in this? The money raised from this workshop will be donated to a eco charity too so it will a yummy Karma yoga event 😊 We'd love to hear your thoughts 😊🙏🌍💜 #ecoyogastudio#eco#sustainable#ecolife#sociallyconscious#ahimsa#karma#yoga#permaculture#savetheearth#saveouroceans
Old picture, new edit... I know I ask this question every 6 months or so, but I've been seeing a lot of new faces starting to follow me recently. If you're from somewhere other than the MD/DE area, let me know 🤘I'm always curious to see where you guys are from

Every year, and estimated 5 to 13 million tons of plastic enter our oceans. Here in the US, about 100 billion plastic bags are used annually. That’s around 360 bags a year for each person in this country, every single day.
Plastic poses a major threat to our marine environment, ecosystems and marine life. It’s now being found in seafood that can eventually land on our plates at dinner time. A major problem with plastic is that it does it biodegrade. It photodegrades and breaks into smaller pieces, meaning that virtually every piece of plastic ever produced still exist today in some form. It’s estimated that there are over 5.2 5 trillion particles of plastic spread throughout the oceans, resulting in a plastic smog.
Each and every one of us can help this cause simply by #BanningTheBag . Get in the habit of keeping your trunk stocked with plenty of reusable bags.
Head to www.click4good.org and pick up your own reusable bag and at the same time, donate to a great cause!
Beautie and trash!
This is the end of the festival and thousand of can and plastic glasses are everywhere... 🥤🍺
For my picture it’s beautiful, but for our planet less... when I travel I always try to do what I can do to have an ecological attitude:
I pick up plastic I find on the beach, I travel with my own iron straw, I have tote bag in tissue always with me to don’t use plastic bag and I just buy a @watertogo to filter my water and don’t buy a lot of bottle of water... I know it’s a small thinks, but if someone do it, that will help... 🤷🏼♀️ I saw so much beautiful beach, desert, place everywhere around the world destroy by plastic... ☹️.
Poubelle de beauté!
A la fin du festival le sol était jonché de canettes, verres en plastique et autres detritus... 🥤🍺
C’est très beau pour ma photo mais beaucoup moins pour la planète...
Quand je voyage j’essaye toujours de faire ce qui est à ma porté pour avoir une attitude écologique:
Je ramasse le plastique que je trouve sur la plage, je voyage avec ma propre paille en métal, j’ai toujours un tote bag en tissu pour ne pas utiliser de sac en plastique, et je viens d’acheter une gourde @watertogo qui filtre l’eau pour ne plus à avoir à acheter de bouteilles en plastiques...
Je sais que ce sont de petites choses, mais si tout le monde déjà faisait ça, ça aiderait un peu... 🤷🏼♀️
J’ai vu tellement de plage, désert, paysage à travers le monde gâché par des déchets plastiques... ☹️
How did Harry, the sea urchin receive his name? Harry’s name inspiration came from none other than Harry Styles and his hair clip fashion sense. Swipe left to see the uncanny resemblance & remember the important lesson that Harry’s story serves in keeping our oceans clean and plastic-free!
@thedivacup is what I started using in 2011 and I haven't gone back to regular tampons or pads. This is my second one, the first one lasted 4 years!! It's a much healthier alternative for your body, and the environment. It's also super easy to use and you don't have to worry about toxic shock syndrome or leaving it in overnight 🤗
The one thing I've been wondering about is how to recycle them. I remember tossing my old one in the recycling bin but honestly, it probably ended up in a landfill because it's medical grade silicone and not recyclable at traditional recycling plants.
That being said, does anyone have any insight on how to recycle these? I've seen some people suggest turning it into a key chain or ornament or putting it next to smaller plants as a reminder to water them, but these suggestions personally weird me out. So... Thoughts?! #sustainablefor7#savetheplanet#sustainability#saveouroceans#saynotoplastic#awareness#buyless#buybetter#environment#earth#ecofriendly#ecobeauty#environmentalawareness#divacup
We don’t like sharing awful pictures but we need to learn how to look after our friends. An adult female Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, which is the rarest species of sea turtles. washed up dead on a beach in Alabama. This sea turtle was found with a beach chair tangled around its neck. 😞.

It was a Sunday BBQ at my moms house, my family and I had been in a bad accident earlier that summer. I’d usually be living in the water but I had this ungodly cast on my leg weighing me down. I was ten, I was crying, I wanted to be swimming. My mom couldn’t take it, that same week she convinced the doc to give me a removable boot instead. I couldn’t really walk for the next year or so that followed but hell, I was able to swim. #remindmetothankmom 📷: @guru_slim
Yep ... disgusting isn’t it ... this is a result of single use plastic bottles, straws, plastic bags, disposable coffee cups ... you name it ... but we CAN make a difference and stop this ... take your mug/keep cup with you instead of asking for a takeaway cup when you grab your coffee, do you really need that plastic straw? ... and bottled water ... well we recycle and reuse our 15L bottles so come to us and fill up your own water bottle instead of buying one every time you’re thirsty “it’s only one ... “ said 8 billion people ... lets love our beautiful planet 🌍 she’s so good to us, let’s now look after her! NOW ... thanks @seangenders for the awareness 🙏🏻
When picking your Saturday night outfit, go for something made with organic cotton and you’ll not only look the part but you’ll feel it too, safe in the knowledge that you’re high fashion and low environmental impact.👕🌍👱👌
If you don’t own a reusable straw, it’s time you invested in one. They’re not expensive, and they don’t take up much room in your bag, and the best part is that it’s going to save our oceans.
Some facts for you....
-When plastics, such as straws, do begin to degrade, they release harmful toxins that can pollute aquatic ecosystems and ultimately destroy the environment.
- Each day, humans produce and utilize 500,000,000 straws
- In the last 25 years, over 6 million straws and stirrers were removed from beaches during annual cleaning events
- Straws consist of the petroleum bi-product polypropylene, which is essentially the same stuff that fuels our cars. And we put that in our mouths!! - Turtles have been observed eating twice as much plastic as they did 25 years ago. Plastic items can easily block a marine reptile’s stomach or even puncture their intestinal walls which ultimately leads to starvation as the digestive system is unable to gain proper nutrients. Furthermore, toxins that are released by partially digested plastics can disrupt an animal’s reproductive system. This has been observed in sea turtles, and since most sea turtles are considered to be endangered, this spells bad news for future populations.
These are just a few facts, but there are so many more reasons to say no to plastic straws.
This is everyone’s ocean. Every one of us needs to address this today. We can start by minimising our single-use plastic consumption; it has been established that a large portion of #Australia ’s “recycling” is sent overseas now...
And if you’re drinking “water” out of a plastic bottle you’re doing yourself long term harm so please do us all a favour and upgrade your water source.

If you need any further inspiration to kick the plastic dependency, here it is.
This footage was taken yesterday on a beach in the Dominican Republic, by @sustainablecoastlineshawaii
Every year, humans dump an average of 13 million metric tonnes of plastic waste into our oceans.
While scenes such as the above are devastating to look at, they are a brilliant motivator for behavioural change.
All it takes is a little effort, from all of us.
Let’s start now.✌🏽
