Hey @oceanmistfarms of Castroville California, I find your artichokes to be delicious. Sadly, I found one of your plastic produce labels way down here @montanadeoro . Why do you use plastic produce labels? Be the industry leader you proclaim to be and stop using plastic. Since I didn’t know anything about artichoke growing until I found your pollution on my pristine beach, I started reading. I spent time doing farm labor as a kid (loading/unloading hay and cutting tobacco). Harvesting crops is brutal on the body. I was surprised at how low farm workers are paid in California. In fact, farm workers are paid more in the “exploit your labor” state of Indiana. My point @oceanmistfarms: stop underpaying your field labor. Yet another point @oceanmistfarms: why are you growing artichokes in Mexico? Does the lack of labor protections and pesticide enforcement increase your bottom line? @oceanmistfarms I have friends from that region of Mexico, and I assure you that you are absolutely exploiting the hard working people of Guanajuato. I investigated further, and you are not the only exploiters of labor involved in artichoke farming. Your competitors at CaraMia products are currently raping Peru. Large American agribusiness is as well. @oceanmistfarms please stop producing artificially cheap food on the backs of worker and environmental exploitation. @oceanmistfarms please let’s have a conversation #artichokes#farming#globalization#agribusiness#environment#exploitation#peru#mexico#plastic#workers#farmworkers#pacificbeach#california#centralcoast#art#contemplation
Americans are generating more plastic trash than ever, and very little of it gets recycled. Plastics and their byproducts are littering our cities, oceans, and waterways, and contributing to health problems in humans and animals.
Here are 8 simple things that you can do to make a change:
1. Avoid plastic straws. There are other great options such as metal, bamboo or paper straws.
2. Use a reusable produce bag. A single plastic bag can take 1,000 years to degrade.
3. Give up gum. Gum is made of a synthetic rubber. (Yup, you're chewing on plastic)
4. Buy boxes instead of bottles. Often, products like laundry detergent come in paper packages.
5. Purchase groceries from bulk bins. Super easy, still delicious and good for the environment. 6. Buy your own bottle made of stainless steel or glass. It's cheaper than all those plastic bottles and better!
7.Avoid buying frozen foods.The packaging is coated with plastic.
8.Make fresh squeezed juice or eat fruit instead of buying juice in plastic bottles. It's healthier and better for the environment.
9.Make your own cleaning products that will be less toxic and eliminate the need for multiple plastic bottles of cleaner.
10. Pack your lunch in reusable containers and bags.
Stay tuned for more info!🌿 #environment#plastic#singleuseplastic#awareness#earth#pollution
This meme will never be funny...not even on the weekend! We’re producing a million bottles a minute according to latest research. With annual consumption of plastic water bottles to top half a trillion by 2021. Can you kick the 🍼💧habit? 📷: @plasticfreemeorg#memes#zerowastememes

This incredible life-size art installation was made almost entirely out of rubbish shaped into a decaying blue whale. It was constructed by Phillipines Greenpeace and is a grim reminder of what we are doing to this planet..
EVERYBODY has the power to HELP, say no to plastics. Recycle, clean up your beaches, don’t litter.. all rather simple steps that can help shape the future 💙

"Mexican Company Finds A Genius Way To Use #AvocadoSeeds To Create Biodegradable Single-Use Cutlery.
It seems that people are slowly but surely beginning to understand the terrible impact our actions can have on earth. And one of the biggest and most environmentally harmful human marks we have made is with plastic. From plastic bags to straws, single-use plastic is one of the biggest causes of pollution in our oceans and soil. While there are plenty of ways you can reduce plastic in your daily life, there is a need for a bigger change, that involves changing the linear economy to a circular economy, and some companies are finally taking action.
Some trash is recycled, some is thrown away, some ends up where it shouldn't end up. 🥺Carlo Ratti
