Hive Stock Images: Pollution - Plastic in the Ocean

avatar

This topic always breaks my heart.
Plastic in the ocean and everywhere around us..
The numbers themselves are devastating..

Over 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year for use in a wide variety of applications.
At least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, and make up 80% of all marine debris from surface waters to deep-sea sediments.
And you can read more here

I pick up the garbage from the beach almost every time I find it, and I try to set an example for my friends/family and people around me. I try to do many things, starting from removing plastic from our lives i.e. not using plastic bottles, straws, plates etc .. but that is something that will take time to become simply a way of living.


Today's post is about providing access to the hive users to some of my images that depict plastic on the sand..

All these images are taken with my iPhone, last winter when I was walking a lot (we had a lock down at the moment, and we were only allowed to walk)

All the pieces of plastic/garbage were thrown away after the photograph.

Please use them only for hive (in any front-end dApp of Hive blockchain) and please mention my name if you do.

Thank you in advance, I hope they will be put to good use.

Thank you for sharing with us and help raise awareness about plastic pollution. It's hurt so much to see we as human are damaging the earth every day. In New Zealand, it took several years for them to ban the single use plastic but there are more to be done and it needs to be done faster.

Thanks so much for coming over! Yes, in Greece plastic is also banned but I keep seeing it being sold in supermarkets (ie. plastic straws etc)
I am getting crazy sometimes, I just hope that more and more people will understand and ... act.
Be well my friend!

It is very sad seeing all the waste and trash on the ground and on beautiful beaches. That’s great you are an example to your children about keeping our earth clean.

I love the photos of how the beach should look, just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing these ~
