We’ve moved to newcastle! it’s so great to be back home and near the ocean 🌊 . first things first, explore the local beach! and of course, every time we go to the beach we @take3forthesea. this sadly turned into picking up almost 100 pieces of plastic and other human-made rubbish. the most common item we picked up was plastic bottle lids. . every piece removed is a piece that won’t be consumed by wildlife or entangle them! 💕🌊🌏

A perfect example of how to arrange your #take3forthesea so we can collect data from your #microcleanup this is #23pieces collected from #coogee over #100m by @cyncoco now that this photo has the #take3forthesea hashtag we can store it and add 23 to our overall tally. do you think we can log 300,000 pieces in 3 months? with your help we can! head to #pickitupsnapitshareit or link in my bio for more info. #letsdothis #collectiveimpact #teamupcleanup

They come in all shapes, colours and sizes with catchy lettering such as 'p', 'flip off' or 'earplugs' on them. beachcleaners around the world pick up thousands every day and even when you're trying to avoid plastic, most glass bottles are adorned with a lovely plastic lid. pointless, virtually impossible to recycle, plastic lids have become my new pet hate along with bottles, pegs, t****n cases, cutlery, lighters, polystyrene, fishing line........

It's been a while since i've shown you any rubbish...but this one's important. we're pitching in to @take3forthesea's goal to prove that together we have the power to make a worldwide impact. their goal is to showcase the removal of 300,000 pieces of rubbish in 3-months (about 2 months to go now). which will also help them in developing a data system that will aim to log all the rubbish that gets picked up around the world. you can find out more on their page, then submit your next #microcleanup to help further their efforts! it's so easy to participate. all you have to do is #pickitupsnapitshareit. post it on your instagram, send it to them in a dm or upload it to their facebook group, then make sure the rubbish gets to the appropriate bin. tag your photo with the following details: (changing to suit your cleanup..) - location: raglan harbour, nz - number of people involved: 1 - how long did it take: 15 minutes - number of items: 75 total pieces collected, 46 smaller bits are wrapped up in the tied plastic bag...they were going to b**w back into the sea with the wind! remember, no matter where you are, #take3forthesea. you'll be amazed at how great it makes you feel to do something good for papatūānuku. xx

23:365 | sunset picnic this little haul from the same 30m stretch as 3:365. water movement as a result of tidal flow or wind direction deposited this lot just close enough to reach with a long stick.

Today i got so disappointed while walking down to a stunning beach in bali. when i arrived at the bottom i saw all this coconuts with straws and rubbish behind the warung. in front crystall-clear, turquoise water, tourists snorkelling to see colourful fish and taking a sunbath. don’t close your eyes in the holidays. it’s our trash, so let’s find solutions to protect the most important - our magical nature: 1. let’s stop using plastic straws. when i arrived in bali i got a straw out of glas. the taste is so much better! or drink your coconut like the locals. 2. stop eating chips and chocolate at the beach! get a fruitplate! it is anyway more healthy and the packaging is compostable. 3. refill your bottle. use the app @refillmybottle_ or just ask at the restaurant or hotel. save plastic and money. 4. take some rubbish from the beach or forest and believe that you are changing the world. 5. just do as good as you can, be proud of it and inspire others. #indonesia #bali #discovering #oceanlove #saltysoul #surfsoul #outdoorlife #respectnature #lovethesea #timeforrevolution #lovemylife #earthrespect #justgrabbits #pickitupsnapitshareit #beachcleanup #lessthenfiveminutes #wepickupplastic #noplaticstraw #glassstraw #seathingssimple #dothingssimple

This is a styrofoam....mattress? it was about 7 foot tall and 2 foot wide, and was just sitting on the beach when i walked past it. i could see that it had already started to break down into millions of teeny tiny non biodegradable pieces on the sand, so i couldn't leave it lying there. i hauled it up the beach, on top of the sea wall and left it to be collected by the bins (i didn't really know what else to do?). one bloke thanked me, and lots of people watched me, but i didn't see anyone else collecting litter. i like to think they were though, just not at the snapshot of time that i saw them. 😀❤️🌍 #2minutebeachclean #take3forthesea #justgrabbits #pickitupsnapitshareit

As long as cigarettes are made, mindless idiots will throw them. realistically, will this ever stop? will the people who throw butts get the message? #cigarette #cigarettes #earthrespect #justgrabbits #2minutebeachclean #take3forthesea #beachcleanup #eco #litter #pickitupsnapitshareit #beachplastics #plasticpollution #pollution #plasticnevergoesway #microplastics #greatpacificgarbagepatch

2018’s first beach cleanup was met with rain. thank you to those who turned up nonetheless! we returned and this time there were no weather disruptions. once again cigarette b**t is a top find. and what are zip ties/cable ties doing on the beach? thank you to the lady who asked if she could have the toy shovel i picked up, #sharing and #reusing is the way to go! #take3forthesea #5minutebeachcleanup #pickitupsnapitshareit #litterati #letstalktrash #binit #beachlitter #beachcleanup #ecp #keepsgclean
