” @we_saveplanetearth While we promote veganism as the most sustainable and ethical lifestyle, we know that many people still eat fish and other animals. But did you know that 90% of fish and seabirds have plastic pieces in their stomach? Feeling like they have a full stomach (full of plastic!), they starve and die a terrible death. We need to seriously change the way we consume plastic!
A good rule of thumb are the four R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Repair, and Recycle ♻️💚
Refuse single-use plastic such as bottles, shopping bags, straws, cups, cutlery, etc. and get reusable alternatives, such as steel or glass bottles, cotton bags, etc.
Small steps can go a long way 💪🏽🌎💚

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives
valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high
achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt
