Un 12 de diciembre de 2015 se firma por 96 países y una parte (la Unión Europea) el histórico Acuerdo de París, el cual busca reforzar la respuesta mundial a las amenazas que conlleva el cambio climático.
Lamentablemente, el 2017, y por decisión del presidente Donald Trump, Estados Unidos se retiró del acuerdo, abogando que éste traería efectos económicos negativos a su nación. Además, los países que más deberían esforzarse por reducir sus emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero son las que menor empeño e interés colocan a la situación, lo que podría llevar, incluso, a que el aumento de la temperatura traspase el grado anual de aumenta hasta llegar a unos peligrosos 3ºC.
Cada uno de nosotros debe poner su grano de arena, empezando desde este segundo, sino, quizá peligre nuestro futuro en la Tierra, y el de otras especies también.
Está en nuestras manos.
On a December 12, 2015 it was signed by 96 countries y one part (the European Union) the historical Paris Agreement, which seeks to reinforce the global response to the threats of the climate change.
Regrettably, in 2017, and because of Mr. President Donald Trump, United States retired from the agreement, explaining that it would have brought negative economics effects to his nation. Also, the countries that should worry the most of the climate change affair and reduce their greenhouse gases emissions drastically are the ones that are doing the least effort and putting to it no interest at all. This could drive, and will drive the temperature increase to not 1ºC a year, but even to 3ºC.
Every one of us should worry about this problematic and put our best effort (not just “our two cents”), starting from this very second. If not, maybe, our future in Earth could be in serious danger, as well as that of other (lots of) species.
It’s in our hands.
Some of the cutest eyes in the animal kingdom can be found in conchs. A type of sea snail, their eyes are on stalks, which they can extend to peer out of their shells to keep a wary watch for predators 👀

Care About Climate joins in on the #10yearchallenge ! We’ve made a lot of progress the start of this year and the last , but there is still so much more we can do! By 2029 we hope to see the rise of renewables such as solar power and hydropower, we hope to see our climate stabilizing and atmospheric recovery instead of decay, we hope to see animal species with restored habitats and resources. Most of all, we hope to see that hope still exists for our planet and our climate. We hope you continue to #CareAboutClimate . Let’s see these goals through! 🌎☀️🌳🌊 -

Plastic is a huge problem we are facing today whether we are discussing pollution in the environment or harmful effects to ourselves and a way to solve this is with the use of hemp. When people hear this they think weed and then they think drugs and it’s like their brains think all it is is bad. Hemp is actually a crop that was cultivated for many years and was actually used to make the sails on the Mayflower and the paper that was used to write the Declaration of Independence. It is an amazing crop that can also be used to make plastic in a process similar to the one used today but with oil. This process is safer to be used and can make different types of hemp plastic too. Some can be strong like the kind used in the interior of a car or a fast biodegradable plastic like for bags. This would create many jobs, save water, save trees, and save animals including people. Just imagine how much more beautiful the beach would be if we would decompose, reuse, and stop polluting.
With the #environment suffering crisis after crisis, it’s always nice to see new design and decor that is satisfying to look at while not having a negative impact on the planet and its resources.
From leftover materials like marble being recomposed in smart ways, solar panel homes, energy-saving appliances, and live plant walls, whatever you bring into your #home from now on can follow suit. Taking less and giving back to the #planet as much as we can is the goal here!

Hola belles. CONTARLES que sí, me tiño el pelo, y que hay alternativas naturales, sanas y orgánicas para la falla en la matrix que es tener que pintarse la cabeza.
Hace más de un año que Seve me introdujo en el mundo de la cosmética responsable.
El pasaje de la tinta y los tratamientos tradicionales al mundo natural de @vegetalement fue todo ganancia.
Mejoró la textura, el brillo, la caída, y el cuerpo. Así cuido mi pelo, mi organismo, el medio ambiente, y sobre todo a Seve.
Los tratamientos químicos exponen a los profesionales a enfermedades, que van desde reuma temprano y alergias, a graves cuadros respiratorios y desórdenes hormonales. El Ministerio de Trabajo de Francia reconoce 5 enfermedades como propias de la profesión.
@severinehonorestyliste es francesa, y luego de un viaje de actualización profesional desembarcó en Uruguay con la visión de convertirse en la primera coiffure 100% vegetal.
En eso anda. Pueden ver lo que hace y sacarse las dudas acá —> @lenaturelde. Yo estoy a las órdenes para preguntas, dudas, impresiones, o que me toquen el pelo. Una vez por persona.
Beses querides! 🌿🐌❤️
Vision: The vision of Environmental League is of a national organization staffed almost entirely and organically by high school level students that:
Trains students to be aware of and appreciate their natural environment
Teaches the students that each one of them can have an impact on the environment but that many of them working together can bring about change to protect the environment
Develops students’ creative thinking so they can develop the solutions we will need in the coming years (to achieve the later half of our mission statement)
Plants the seeds of conservation in the minds of a generation that then grows up to be politicians, businessmen and women, and professionals of all sorts (some of whom will be conservation professionals), all with a greater respect and understanding of what impact we are having on our environment and what is needed to maintain our natural habitat.” #theenvironmentalleague#wildimpactfuladventures

Pelican Duel. Pesticide use nearly wiped out the brown pelican in the late 1950s. The insecticide endrin killed pelicans directly; DDT contamination resulted in thin-shelled eggs that broke under the weight of the parents. Fortunately, their numbers rebounded after these pesticides were banned; however they still face threats from oil spills and habitat degradation. #naturephotography#birds#rawartists#pelican#environment#wildlife
#SeaCreatureSaturday - We're obsessed with @oceanramsey 's account. She's a conservationist and marine biologist who's raising awareness about our oceans and the beautiful animals that live within them.
Did you hear about the #NoStrawStPete campaign in Florida? @wtsp reported that "The city of St. Petersburg revealed a citywide campaign Tuesday to reduce and eventually eliminate plastic straw usage. City officials hope the "No Straw St. Pete" campaign encourages greater discussion about single-use plastics, like utensils and cup lids." Which cities would you like to see a campaign like this roll out in?
Which milks are the best for climate change? 🌱
Via @bbcnews “A scientific study suggests the greenhouse gas emissions used in the production of plant-based milks are lower than for dairy milk.
But which milk has the smallest impact on the planet?
Producing a glass of dairy milk results in almost three times the greenhouse gas emissions of any non-dairy milks, according to a University of Oxford study.
Looking at land use, the difference is starker still.
Producing a glass of dairy milk every day for a year requires 650 sq m (7,000 sq ft) of land, the equivalent of two tennis courts and more than 10 times as much as the same amount of oat milk, according to this study.
Almond milk requires more water to produce than soy or oat milk. A single glass requires 74 litres (130 pints of water) - more than a typical shower. Rice milk is also comparatively thirsty, requiring 54 litres of water per glass.
However, it's worth noting that both almond and rice milk still require less water to produce than the typical glass of dairy milk.” #ditchdairy#goplantbased#cowspiracy#animalagriculture#climate#climatechange#environment#dairy#plantsforthewin#solutions
