Starting An Environmental Conversation

Over the last few months, it has become increasingly important to begin an environmental conversation. I always touch on this because the environment is a topic that a lot of people don’t realize is a priority. With politics finally shedding some light on how important it is, from local communities to internationally, I find myself wanting to educate people on the basics of why the environment deserves our attention.

We are witnessing environmental issues within our lives that’s a direct result of the industrial impact on earth.

We are further compromising the state of our environment by making long-term decisions for short-term profit.

How & what we’re doing to confront & deal with issues depends on the issue itself — meaning there will never one fits all kind of solution.

Our success in creating current sustainability may be able to promise future sustainability. 

The most important thing to remember is that environmental problems are multi-faceted issues. There are so many different aspects to consider and majority of them are ever-changing in nature. So solutions & predictions are harder to determine since there are many moving parts.

To start an environmental conversation, we really need to begin to build our understanding of what the environment does for us. That foundational insight can help us realize the powerful relationship between earth and man. We need to learn more about our surroundings, how much it immediately gives to us, and how our behaviors today affect what it will give us in the future. From romantic relationships to friendships and family bonds, all relationships require a specialized attention to the beloved.

So why not the relationship we have with our only home? 💭

Seabin Project “Vacuum” Cleans the Ocean

Happy World Oceans Day! With less than 2 weeks til we enter the summer season it’s crunch time to spread awareness about the ocean and its livelihood. Earlier this week I mentioned the polluted state of the deepest part of the ocean and also introduced one woman who’s inviting people to help their local communities. Today, however, I wanted to share a commercial way to help clean any coastline called the Seabin Project.

This revolutionary floating bin (shown below) acts as a vacuum for the ocean by sucking in the surface of seawater using a pump. The litter/pollution is kept and the seawater is returned back into the ocean via its mesh innards. Sounds simple right? Thanks to the Seabin Project, it really is that simple. People often think answers to environmental issues have to be as complicated as the problems they cause but that’s not entirely true.

The only down sides are that the Seabin requires daily maintenance and can only be placed in close quarters to docks, marinas, and typically calm waters. The good news in that is that floating trash makes its way everywhere along coastlines. With ever-changing technology, we can expect to see bigger and better coming out of this idea.

Summer 2017 will be the first season they are for sale. Please click here to visit their page, learn specific details about the Seabin, and the entire project.
