You can buy them through the link in @chamiltonjames profile. 25% off profits will go to @rainforestflow - a wonderful NGO that puts fresh drinking water and sanitation into remote communities in the Amazon.
This is the HQ of ZERO WASTE FRANCE in Paris. They’ve been leading the Zero Waste movement for 20 years. 23 cities have just agreed to become zero waste. This is from C40.org "Cities around the world are pledging to reduce waste over the next 12 years in an effort to curb global warming and eventually become zero-waste cities. During the Global Climate Action Summit, the C40 announced a new initiative that encourages cities to eliminate waste production and end the practice of waste burning. So far, 23 cities have agreed to become zero-waste and will work toward that goal by “reducing the amount of municipal solid waste disposed to landfill and incineration by at least 50 percent … and increase the diversion rate away from landfill and incineration to at least 70 percent by 2030,” #zerowaste#planetorplastic#plasticwaste@thephotosociety@natgeocreative
Jelijio Tzul is a lobster fisherman in Belize and part of a management committee for the National Fishermen Cooperative. This co-op, supported by @nature_org, promotes using a sustainable noose allowing you to release the lobster undamaged if it is under-size. We’ll be on the road soon with a bunch of workshops (see link under my profile)… check out @cbphotoworkshop in beautiful Dingwall Nova Scotia October 19-21.
Seaweed farmers in Belize shot for @nature_org. The advantage of seaweed aquaculture is that it provides fishermen supplemental and alternative income. This reduces fishing pressure on wild stocks and the seaweed farms provide a nursery for ecologically and commercially important species. Underwater photography is not on the agenda, but we are teaching a number of workshops in the coming months. See the link above for our workshop page. @melissafarlow and I have been lucky enough to teach the Missouri Photo Workshop (MPW) for a very long time (not saying how long... it dates us) MPW is September 23-29. The Cape Breton workshop is October 19-21 @cbphotoworkshop. The Siena workshop associated with the Siena International Photo Awards is October 29-November 2nd @sipacontest. And the BLUOCEAN workshop in association with National Geographic Italy is November 5-9 #bluocean_workshop@thephotosociety@natgeocreative
Not Ocean day anymore, but that doesn’t mean children aren’t still trying to catch plastic laden fish on plastic laden beaches in Manila - Manila’s Pasig River dumps into Manila Bay, and is one of the three main river systems pushing plastic out into the world’s oceans. The Philippines puts 10 million metric tons of plastic waste into the ocean each year. #planetorplastic#plastic#oceans#waste#slums#manila#philippines@thephotosociety@natgeocreative
