BEACH BIN & BAG

VRIPAK

Annually, there are over seven billion tons of debris deposited on beaches around the world. The pollution of beaches negatively impacts the natural balance of costal ecosystems and the health of our oceans.

Plastic contributes to the bulk of the tons of discarded rubbish and washed-up debris. Reducing this pollution through beach clean-ups significantly helps allow our important coastal ecosystems to exist and thrive.

Inspired and actively engaged, Ocean Family Foundation has partnered with North Sails, the global leader in sailmaking, and Vripack, the innovative yacht design studio, to develop waste bins and bags from reclaimed sails specifically for beach cleanups.

Ocean Family Foundation, North Sails and Vripack actively promote beach cleanups among yacht owners and crew and with the Beach Bin And Bag initiative we heighten awareness of the amount of plastic waste on our shores that we can easily pick up and remove before it enters the ocean and our marine systems.

With this simple approach take the pledge here https://vripack.com/new-wave/beach-bin-and-bag to receive the bags and be part of the solution!

GLOBAL CORAL BLEACHING 🪸 

The fourth Global Coral Bleaching Event has been confirmed.

The 4th global mass bleaching event has been declared and confirmed in 53 countries within all three major ocean basins - Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans by NOAA and ICRI. 

https://icriforum.org/4gbe/

The leading cause of coral bleaching is climate change.
A warming planet means a warming ocean and when temperatures are too hot, coral bleaching occurs.

While bleached coral does not always result in dead corals, past bleaching events have resulted in significant loss of coral in many parts of the world, causing economic loss and biodiversity decline.
Immediate action to increase bleaching awareness and reduce climate change is needed to prevent bleaching events becoming more frequent and more severe in the future.

The @oceanswithoutborders and Conservation Ranger teams are currently doing monitoring around the Bazaruto and Mnemba seascapes to assess the extent of bleaching.

OCEANS WITHOUT BORDERS 🆘 

This April, the @oceanswithoutborders Benguerra Island team came to the rescue of the local house reef. 

In mid-March, tropical cyclone Filipo made landfall in Mozambique, bringing torrential rainfall, sustained winds of up to 116 km/h and heavy storm-surge. As a result, substantial amounts of debris, including 🌴 trunks, branches and roots, were washed onto the Benguerra Island House Reef, smothering and damaging the 🪸 .

Their team spent a week diving and clearing these multiple deposits from the reef, before moving all this flotsam out of the water to a beach collection point for removal. 👏🏼

PLASTIC PRODUCTION 💨 

@trashheroworld have recently highlighted that new, peer-reviewed research shows a direct 1:1 correlation between increasing plastic production from FMCG companies and plastic pollution in the environment.

Further, only 56 companies are responsible for more than half of pollution globally - with @cocacola alone taking 11% of the share.

These companies, along with other plastics industry lobbyists are at #INC4 in Canada right now, trying to influence the outcome of the global #plasticstreaty They need to be stopped!

We are calling for a strong conflict of interest policy to be adopted at the negotiations - and you can too. Head to @greenpeace https://action.greenpeace.org.uk/global-plastic-treaty 🗳️.

EASTER WEEKEND 🐣 

Before we head off to celebrate Easter, we wanted to draw your attention to ways you can still enjoy this time of joy without contributing to unnecessary waste.

In the UK, it is estimated than 80 million Easter 🪺 are sold each year, generating around 3,000 tonnes of packaging waste.

An investigation by Which? found that, on average, packaging makes up 25% of the total weight of an Easter egg.

Ways you can celebrate sustainably:

✔️Avoid flimsy single-use plastic decorations, opt for flowers, plants and branches instead.

✔️Get the family involved and make homemade Easter eggs instead. See a 5-ingredient wholesome recipe HERE: https://www.healthymummy.com/recipe/homemade-easter-eggs/

✔️Reduce food waste by meal-planning, getting creative with leftovers and avoid over shopping in advance!

✔️Inevitably there will be extra waste. Just ensure this is recycled.
