Recycle your dead Batteries ⚡⚡
Did you know only 3% of batteries are recycled in Australia? Compare that to 72% in Switzerland 🇨🇭 Most components of batteries are recyclable which is great news because that means less mining for finite resources and less toxic waste in landfill.
Most items in my house are rechargeable but I have two tv remotes that only take batteries. I was not going to let them defeat me though. Last week I was in a secondhand shop and I found reusable batteries that weren't even opened! These were also on the list of things to find secondhand so I am feeling pretty happy with myself lately 🤩
Before I found the rechargeable batteries I collected my dead batteries in an old dried cranberry container and recycled them at @aldiaustralia. Once the current batteries in my tv remotes die, I will replace them with the reusable ones and go on (hopefully) the last battery recycling trip for a very long time 🔋
In case you were wondering, the reusable batteries are also recyclable at the end of their life 😊
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever had.
After feeling incredibly disheartened and deactivated yesterday when reaching out to is guess all of you out there to make a small temporary change for the greater good. Well out of the hundreds that viewed said change request story barely anyone could even be bothered to click a button an commit to either remaining the same or committing to making the small temporary change.
I literally spent the entire day yesterday trying to not slump into an existential depression (as I often can do as a result of feeling so hopeless and useless and small in the fight to save this planet). People's sheer ability to simply turn the other cheek baffles me especially because of the average intelligence of all of you I speak of. .
You literally KNOW better about the sheer level of urgency of this situation, this crisis, yet can so nonchalantly ignore any attempt at personal accountability, responsibility and attempted change towards a more sustainable future.
Sustainability is not even enough anymore we need to work on regenerative systems now!
This image was chosen for the 'turned cheek' as well as because I am wearing a bodysuit bought by my mother over 30 years ago. As Vivienne Westwood says - Buy Less, choose well, make it last.
We all have so much power in so many ways to make so many small seemingly insignificant changes to the way we live and engage with our environment. I hope we all, you all can realize that more and more as each day passes and that you too can feel more empowered with a drive to make change than what you feel dispondently complacent.
HAPPY #BISONDAY “Gone Too Soon”

I’ve been trying to cope with the news of your passing all week... It wasn’t easy, but I found a bit of closure in writing a song for you! I even performed the words @ your service bro!! It’s the way you would have wanted!!! 🤘🤘
Your family really loved it, and they wanted me to make it tangible for them...I put it on wax and our brother Walter(@cruelhart) even chopped the beat! You were a firm believer in the power of music.. You were one of my FIRST, and truest supporters, so its the least I could do for you big bro... I bet you would have never guessed you would have your own song!!! Lol It’s a beautiful record bro... I really hope you like it...
I’ll miss you everyday... I’ll never forget all the beautiful times we’ve shared...All the jokes, all the laughs, and all the countless hours pushing wood... I’ll never forget the pure LOVE, and kindness that you’ve shown me.. You had my back since we were just 8 years old...I was blessed to have known you, and even more blessed to have called you a friend... You are no longer with us in the physical, but your energy will radiate through every kind word or action I will EVER do on this planet... I would give anything to see you one more time; To feel your hand hit me with BISON... But now every time I throw up BISON, you are in it ♥️♥️♥️... Cherish those you love, and tell them just how much you LOVE them... & no matter what, don’t never, ever, let them go... We miss you Chiko... Long live my brother,

What will humanity be in another 150 years, or 50, or even 5 for that matter? What wrongs do we currently condone that will make us shudder when we look back on them from a more enlightened future? Legally sanctioned violence against the innocent… Living beings bought and sold like inanimate objects… The fundamental rights of some sacrificed for the gratification of others… Whoever the victims are, these actions remain the marks of a yet-to-be civilized society, and they taint ours today just as they did every era of the past.We must be willing to examine the biases and bigotries of the present, and see them with the same critical eyes we use to view humanity’s heinous crimes of the past.
Until we do, we will remain trapped by our ignorance and prejudice, locked in an age that is much darker than the one we just may be on the brink of stepping into.
Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet, according to the scientists behind the most comprehensive analysis to date of the damage farming does to the planet.
The new research shows that without meat and dairy consumption, global farmland use could be reduced by more than 75% – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined – and still feed the world. Loss of wild areas to agriculture is the leading cause of the current mass extinction of wildlife.
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Snowmobilers saw a #baldeagle with a visible broken wing (2nd photo) in the town of Deerfield, Oneida County and called DEC.
ECO Jeff Hull (1st photo) arrived and climbed 70-feet down to 9-Mile Creek, alongside (snowmobiler) Bill Hajdasz. Together they were able to corner it, rescuing the immature Bald Eagle.
The Eagle was taken to a wildlife rehabilitator in Utica. 🦅

⏰ #TickTock Update: 100% of Britain's seals, dolphins and whales are polluted with #microplastics.⠀
Researchers from the University of Exeter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory examined 50 animals - 10 species of 🐬dolphins, seals and 🐋 whales - and found microplastics in them all. 86% of the #plastic was from synthetic fibres, from sources such as clothes, fishing nets and toothbrushes.⠀

More than 650,000 marine animals, including dolphins, whales, seals and turtles, are killed or injured in fishing nets each year 😭
In many cases, animals get caught and die in nets that are being actively used by fishermen.
Yet lost, discarded and abandoned fishing nets referred to as “ghost nets” cause just as much damage, killing hundreds upon thousands of marine animals.
Approximately 640,000 tons of fishing gear are left in our oceans every year.
Left in the ocean, ghostnets become death traps for almost any animal they come into contact with.
The nets may wrap themselves around the animal’s body, and, in the case of a mammal prevent the animal from returning to the surface to get air, causing them to slowly drown.
That net is cutting into flesh and muscles, and it can sever an artery, And if we’re talking about it wrapping around a tail or a flipper, the tissue can become necrotic, and they’ll lose the limb, which can then lead to a slow death... -

PORTLAND HAS MY HEART
I left my parents house at the age of 16 to go study abroad as an exchange student. Since then, I have had several places that I call home now. Moving had always been exciting for me
Having said that leaving my last home Madison was definitely a bittersweet for me. Not only was I sad to leave the Midwest but I was nervous (which is very unlike me). I knew nothing about PNW and knew one person in the entire city of Portland
30 hours drive, crazy move, and two semesters later. I can finally say, I have another place that I call home now. Portland is not just any city, it’s an experience. Being here feels cozy especially when you look at the city from above and see how it’s beautifully hugged by all things mountains and dense forests
I will share more details about the specific things I love about Portland. Also have you ever wanted to move somewhere but you are scared/indecisive about it and why? Share your thoughts!!
