PLASTIC FREE NEW ZEALAND

Let’s end plastic pollution in Aotearoa

Be part of the movement to end the plastic crisis in New Zealand. From banning our plastic waste being exported out of sight, to pushing the Government to come up with a real plan for this problem – there are heaps of things you can do to get involved in the campaign.

A MUST SEE VIDEO PLEASE CK. IT OUT

Sign on now to get the Government to adopt a national strategy to eliminate plastic pollution in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The world is in a plastic pollution crisis. In New Zealand and globally, our oceans have become choked with single use plastics such as bags, bottles, straws and other packaging. These items – used for just a tiny window of time on land – go on to wreak havoc in the marine environment, putting our precious ocean life at risk.

GREENPEACE — Animal Collective’s “Tangerine Reef”: Myth, Mystery and Subtle Environmentalism — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 84,000 photos and videos. 

GREENPEACE

That environment of the unknown — and protecting it — was the inspiration behind the band Animal Collective’s latest album and video, Tangerine Reef. Created to coincide with the International Year of the Reef, the musicians tell how art can help inspire us to reckon with climate change before its too late.

A must see video, ck. it out.

The video for Tangerine Reef shows corals moving 10 times their natural speed, making them seem otherworldly but humanlike. Slimy appendages wriggle and feed neon, tessellating mouths. At times, they seem to smile. At other times, the images drift into patterns and abstraction.

There is still a lot we don’t know about corals: Scientists weren’t sure how they reproduced until 1981 and researchers are still learning the details about how they live, grow and respond to environmental stresses.

It’s one thing to talk about the plastics pollution crisis, but witnessing it first-hand, standing on it, smelling it, and talking to the communities that have to live next to it, is indescribable.

While corporations talk, heroes like Froilan Grate and Merci Ferrer are working every day to tackle the plastic pollution crisis with real solutions in the Philippines. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside them as partners in the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement.

BAN SYNTHETIC NITROGEN FERTILIZER

The problem:

Synthetic nitrogen fertiliser is added to grass to make it grow faster. More grass means more cows – that means more climate and river pollution.

The solution:

But there is another way. Regenerative agriculture works with nature, not against it. If we banned chemical nitrogen fertiliser, we would set ourselves on the way to a better way to farm. A win for our climate and our rivers!

Indonesia’s forests are a treasure chest of incredible wildlife. The country is home to between 10 and 15 percent of the world’s known plants, mammals, and birds. But in the last half century, more than 74 million hectares of Indonesian rainforest—an area twice the size of Germany—have been logged, burned, or degraded.

Indonesia has already lost 72 percent of its intact forests. This is threatening the habitat of species like Sumatran tigers and orangutans, as well as harming the millions of people who depend on Indonesia’s forests for their food, shelter and livelihoods.

It’s also bad news for global warming. Peatlands—including those that form the wetland-like floor of Indonesia’s rainforests—are one of the world’s largest carbon sinks. Indonesia’s peatlands store about 35 billion tons of carbon.
