⛔BUYING BOTTLED WATER IS NOT SUSTAINABLE⛔
Share to spread the facts
⚠ In production: Most bottled water is packaged in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles which are derived from crude oil. It can take up to 3L of water to produce 1L of water.🛑
⚠ In transportation: Transportation of bottled water around the world requires burning of fossil fuels. ⛟💨
⚠ In landfill and the litter stream: Although plastic bottles are recyclable, many end up in landfill and take up to 1000 years to break down. When littered they often end up in the sea where they break up in small pieces, killing marine life that mistake them for food.🐢🐋
💸Save money 💱 Instead of purchasing numerous bottles each year, why not get 1 that you can re-use, wash, refill & keep. It'll also reduce your carbon 👣 If you don't have one, #BUYNOW and make a concious change. Purchase an #Ecoceanic reusable bottle 💚🌱
ECOCEANIC SWIMWEAR UPDATE
Due to personal health reasons, Ecoceanics' swimwear line will be delayed. I have had to take some time from designing the swimwear due to life getting in the way and prioritising my health, sadly. I couldn’t thank you enough for your ongoing support, patience and love.
It WILL happen. I guess it’s true when they say "good things take time".
Thank you thank you for supporting a single-lady-run business. xoxo
Ecoceanic advocates against the shark finning industry.
According to a report in marine policy, an estimated 100 million sharks are killed indirectly and directly by humans every year. The paper also found that number could be as high as 273 million.
It can be hard to picture that number – or even to picture 11,417, the number of sharks estimated to be killed every hour.
It’s clear: sharks have more to fear from humans than humans have to fear from them. But right now, the NSW government is under pressure to expand shark nets that indiscriminately kill marine life without making people safe.
We don’t need to kill sharks to protect ourselves at the beach using barbaric nets that have no evidence of protecting humans. An expert review just recommended that the NSW government trials the shark spotter program that has proved effective on South African beaches.
STOP Marine Life being Senselessly Killed in Ineffective Shark Nets
☠Nothing but a false sense of security and a killer to sea life! ⛔ Grey nurse sharks, loggerhead turtles, humpback whales, Indo pacific bottlenose dolphins, rays, green turtles and many more have been victims of shark nets. Only 3% of animals caught we're the "targeted" shark specie and 15% of sharks (zoom into pie chart on 3rd image). This is unacceptable! 😳😠 Please sign this petition, share and spread awareness. Be the voice for them🦈💙
We urge that the New South Wales (NSW) Government in Australia permanently removes ineffective 'shark nets' from the NSW beaches and replaces them with effective non lethal forms of mitigation which are proven to work based on data which has already gathered.
The world is watching!
