MIKROPLASTIK Hai Insight Seekers, Ancaman kerusakan ekosistem laut sudah makin akut. Kini, di hampir segala penjuru perairan di dunia, kita bisa menemukan sampah plastik. Tidak hanya sampah plastik berukuran besar yang mengancam ekosistem. Sampah berukuran kecil atau mikroplastik pun mengancam kehidupan. Diperkirakan, saat ini mikroplastik yang ada di laut-laut Indonesia jumlahnya antara 30 hingga 960 partikel/liter. Fakta tersebut diuraikan Peneliti Pusat Penelitian Oseanografi (P2O) Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia (LIPI), Reza Cordova. Mark Browne dari Universitas New South Wales menyebut serpihan-serpihan plastik berukuran antara satu mikrometer s/d 1.000 mikrometer (1.000 mikrometer = 1 milimeter) sebagai mikroplastik. Menurut Browne, sampah-sampah plastik berukuran lebih besar, di masa depan akan menjadi mikroplastik. Jadi, meskipun kelihatan sudah hancur, sebenarnya sampah berubah menjadi partikel-partikel kecil, menjadi mikroplastik. Mikroplastik ini kemudian menyebar di seantero perairan, meracuni hewan-hewan air. Banyak hewan-hewan laut kemudian mati karena memakan sampah-sampah ini. Tak hanya itu, bahaya ini juga diprediksi akan melanda manusia. Mikroplastik yang tertelan oleh ikan/hewan laut dapat berpengaruh terhadap metabolisme hewan tersebut. Bisa jadi manusia yang memakan hewan laut yg menelan mikroplastik pun juga terkena dampaknya. Insight Seekers, pola konsumsi yang tidak ramah lingkungan membahayakan kehidupan kita sendiri. Perlu ada usaha mengurangi penggunaan plastik. Hal konkret apa sih yang bisa kita lakukan untuk mengurangi plastik dan menekan jumlah sampah plastik? 📝: @yulius_suroso & @martinus_dam_febrianto 📸: https://plasticchange.dk/knowledge-view/hvad-er-mikroplastik/ dan @wyllysuhendra #jesuitinsight #katolikvidgram #katolikmedia #sahabatkatolik #berandakatolik #omkindonesia #omk #instakatolik #katolikmuda #prompangsj #hitsomk #magisindonesia #youcatid #orangmudakatolik #hidupmembiara #amdg #jesuit #katolik #serikatyesus #letsinspire #beranijadijesuit #microplastic #waterpollution #plastic

Repost from @afsana.arts using @RepostRegramApp - Factory pollution 🏭is often thought of as those mostly visible and smelly smokestack emissions. Industry pollutes the water and land around you as well. While you can't visibly see all pollutants, once they enter the atmosphere or the water system; they can spread far and wide beyond the factory. The most common factory air pollutants are greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels. Factories contribute to water and land pollution by acidifying rain, chemical spills and disposal of toxic waste♨ . . 1.We can reduce air pollution by conserving energy by turning off lights, computers, air conditioners and other appliances when not in use. 2.Encourage your employees to use public transport or you can arrange a bus from a common point for your employees. 3.When purchasing a vehicle 🚗for your company consider buying most efficient, lowest polluting or if possible zero emission electric vehicle. 4.Encourage employees to use bicycle for daily commute. 5.Ensure drivers in your company obeying traffic laws, speed limits, maintaining vehicles properly and keeping optimum air pressure in tyres. 6.Replace lights in your factory to energy efficient bulbsGO green by limiting the use of paper as it may save some treesChoose materials which are made from recycled materials.7.Encourage teleconference than physical meeting.8.Encourage activities like planting trees once a year among employees 9.Give awards to employees who reduced emissions in their shiftsImprove machineries or manufacturing processes to reduce emissions from factories 10.Boosting performance of boilers can sharply reduce air pollution from industry. .

Gri su, siyah su (tuvalet suyu) haricindeki bir evden boşaltılan atık suların genel adıdır, yani duştan, küvetten, lavabodan, mutfaktan, bulaşık ve çamaşır makinesinden gelen sulardır. Gri su sabun, şampuan, diş macunu, yiyecek parçaları, pişirme yağı, deterjan ve saç gibi maddeleri içerir. Gri su evsel atık sular içinde en büyük orana sahiptir.  Genellikle evsel atık suyun yüzde 50-80'i gri sudur.  Gri su evsel aktivitelerin bir yansımasıdır ve nitelikleri yaşam standardına, sosyal ve kültürel alışkanlıklara, evde yaşayan insan sayısına ve evde kullanılan kimyasallara bağlıdır. Banyodaki lavabo, duş ve küvetten gelen gri su en az kirlenmiş gri su kaynağıdır. Ortalama bir gri suyun toplam organik yüke (BOİ) yüzde40-50 gibi bir katkısı vardır. Ayrıca gri su evsel atık suda bulunan toplam askıda katı maddelerin (AKM) dörtte biri ve toplam fosforun üçte ikisinden fazlasını içerir. Bulaşık ve çamaşır deterjanları gri sudaki fosforun ana kaynağıdır. Mutfak lavabosundan gelen, yiyecek parçaları içeren su ile çamaşır yıkamadan gelen su duştan ve lavabodan gelen gri suya göre çok daha kirlidir. Bu yüzden dolayı bütün gri sular tam olarak gri su statüsünde değildir ve gri suyun özelliğine göre farklı temizleme metodu kullanmak gerekmektedir. Su kullanılan mekânların kendilerine özgü kalite gereksinimleri bulunmaktadır. Bu yüzden dolayı gri su geri kazanım sisteminden elde edilen suyun kullanılacağı yerin standartlarına uygun olması gerekmektedir. Genel olarak işlemden geçmiş gri sudan elde edilmiş kullanım suyu, hijyenik ve mikrobiyolojik olarak güvenilir, renksiz ve bütünüyle katı atıklardan arındırılmış olmalıdır. Arıtılan gri su saklanmaya başladıktan birkaç gün sonra dahi koku oluşturmayacak kalitede olması lazımdır. Mevcut bilimsel araştırmalara göre, bu suların tuvalet rezervuarları, çamaşır yıkama, bahçe sulama, süs havuzlarında kullanımı ve yüzey sularına doğrudan deşarj etmenin uygun olduğu kanıtlanmıştır. #iklimdeğişikliği #sukirliliği #waterpollution #climatechange #greywater

Inspire and Empower Center HRH the Duke of York, Prince Andrew's Inspire and Empower Enterprise Training center in Africa. This very brief proposal demonstrates Dr. Askwar Hilonga’s passion to take the Inspirations and Empowerment he got from HRH The Duke of York, Prince Andrew – an inspiration that began with Hilonga winning the first Pitch@Palace Africa in London on 2nd Dec 2015 and Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation (APEI) sponsored by The Royal Academy of Engineering. During his second visit in London (8th Sept 2016), The Duke of York challenged Hilonga to specify what young Africans actually need! The conversation landed on a new horizon – The Duke of York proposed the establishment of Inspire & Empower Centres across Africa – far beyond Hilonga’s imagination! The concept is highly supported by Hilonga’s partners and sponsors, particularly the APEI Head Judge Mr. Malcom Brinded.

Solar latern 44% of Tanzanian’s 60 million population is under 14 years old. The majority of these are school children, mostly in rural areas where 94% of households still depend on firewood for domestic energy and kerosene for lighting. This project will enable 1,000 poor/marginalized Tanzanian school children in rural areas to purchase solar lanterns at a QUARTER OF MARKET PRICE. It will save 9,000 Lts of kerosene/year, equal to $12,857 and 25,000 Kg of CO2 emission and increase their school performance. Check out our Website to find more informations about the challenges, the solution and the long-term impact. https://gongalimodel.com/?page_id=180 https://gongali.wordpress.com/the-solar-lantern/ #GongaliModel #TAHUDE #Nanofilter #cleanwater #safewater #drinkingwater #biogas #SolarLatern #InspireandEmpowerCenter #waterislife #waterpollution #botteldwater #waterstation #environmental #cleanenergy #greenenergy #solarenergy #reneableenergy #zeroemissions #SDGs #pollutionfree #noplastic #tanzania #arusha

Biogas This is a project run by our NGO – Tanzania Human Development Foundation (TAHUDE Foundation). This project will enable households in rural Tanzania build the biogas systems for cooking, lighting, and organic fertilizer to increase crop production/agriculture. Households will no longer depend on trees/firewood for cooking. Women and girls avoid diseases caused by smoke, save time for collecting firewood, and there are global benefit for climate change mitigation. We give loans to people in rural Tanzania to build their biogas systems. The repayments/revolving fund is re-invested back.

Do you really boil all your water? Do you really boil it long enough? To boil water can´t and doesn’t remove chemicals! It even raise the concentration of the chemicals. Some chemicals even react when heated and can get more dangerous. Flouride also can´t be removed by boiling. Boiling need a lot of energy. This means a high cost over a longer time period and high CO2 emissions. Also boiled water often tastes bad. #noboilwater #boli #chemicals #heated #dangerous #GongaliModel #TAHUDE #Nanofilter #cleanwater #safewater #drinkingwater #biogas #SolarLatern #InspireandEmpowerCenter #waterislife #waterpollution #botteldwater #waterstation #environmental #cleanenergy #greenenergy #solarenergy #reneableenergy #zeroemissions #SDGs #pollutionfree #noplastic #tanzania #arusha

70% of Tanzanians are struggling with the lack of clean and safe drinking water (WHO 2012 Report). Water often contains bacteria, heavy metals, pesticides and various pollutants from mining, industrial effluent. Especially in region around Arusha, the water is very heavily contaminated with fluoride, which in the worst case can cause fluorosis. Due to the insufficient water quality, water-borne diseases are a large problem in many parts of Tanzania. In addition the water is also polluted by a rather poor sewage system.  Water-borne diseases lead to poor health, unhappy families, and untimely deaths, particularly for children under 5 years. People are uneducated about these problems! #waterproblems #waterpollutants #pollutants #struggle #bacteria #heavymetals #pesticides #fluoride #waterborneiseases #poorhealth #poorseweagesystem #problems #uneducated #GongaliModel #TAHUDE #Nanofilter #cleanwater #safewater #drinkingwater #waterislife #waterpollution #botteldwater #waterstation #environmental #cleanenergy #greenenergy #solarenergy #SDGs #pollutionfree #tanzania

Askwar Hilonga is coming from a poor economic Background, the Gongali Village Karatu Arusha. As a child he had to suffer from deseases caused by the dirty water. Hilonga decided to take matters into my own hands! Everyone should have access to safe and clean drinking water! But many can‘t afford filters for their homes. And because of that we want to turn community centres into water hubs with safe water at cheap prices. We offer safe drinking water at water stations, 5 times as cheap as sold bottles. Also there is the option to refill bottles, which is even cheaper and includes less plastic waste. “My goal is to develop an entire independent system, from filter case to water bottles.” #GongaliVillage #Karatu #dirtywater #cheapprices #goal #GongaliModel #TAHUDE #Nanofilter #cleanwater #safewater #drinkingwater #biogas #SolarLatern #InspireandEmpowerCenter #waterislife #waterpollution #botteldwater #waterstation #environmental #cleanenergy #greenenergy #solarenergy #reneableenergy #zeroemissions #SDGs #pollutionfree #noplastic #tanzania #arusha

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.

𝗗𝗲𝘃𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗿 𝗗𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 Let's get straight to the point. Our country's most revered river - Ganga - is also its most polluted (and the 6th most in the world), tainted by wastes of both human and industrial settlements built along its banks. Countless chemical plants in industrial cities like Prayagraj and Kanpur, contribute to the pollution of the river by dumping the harmful industrial effluents into it, inspite of court rulings against it. Regular household activities like bathing and washing of clothes and utensils may sound harmless, but not when they are carried out right in the river's water. Nor are the ritualistic dips taken by the devotees who believe the (already polluted) river would cleanse them of their past sins. But this exploitation takes a whole new level in Varanasi, Banaras or Kashi, as it was called in the days of yore. The Hindu belief that atonement and moksha - breaking the cycle of rebirth - can be achieved if cremated on the banks of Ganga in Varanasi and if the ashes are scattered in this 'sacred' river, only adds fuel to this burning issue (no pun intended). On Manikarnika ghat (swipe left), it is said that pyres burn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Along with the ashes and bone fragments, what is also discarded in the Ganges are half-burned corpses belonging to deceased from poor families who cannot afford enough firewood for the cremation. Some types of corpses like that of pregnant women and children that are not supposed to be cremated are rather weighed down with stones to the depths of the river. Thousands of bodies and parts of bodies are recovered from the Ganges every year, as these putrid corpses often resurface further downstream. Even if you are not bothered by the thought of coming across such a sight, can you imagine the health risks all of these uncontrolled practices pose? Religion and devotion are integral part of being Indian, but not at the cost of a river that serves over 500 million people; that is 40% of India's population! . . . . #varanasi #varanasighats #environmentalist #waterpollution #manikarnikaghat #ganga #riverganges #instagramstories #storiesofindia #incredibleindia

China moves to phase out single-use plastics — Plastic bags to be banned in all major cities by end of 2020, says state planner — “China is stepping up restrictions on the production, sale and use of single-use plastic products, according to the state planner, as it seeks to tackle one of the country’s biggest environmental problems. Vast amounts of untreated plastic waste are buried in landfills or dumped in rivers. The United Nations has identified single-use plastics as one of the world’s biggest environmental challenges. The national development and reform commission and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, which issued the policy, said plastic bags would be banned in all of China’s major cities by the end of 2020 and banned in all cities and towns in 2022. Markets selling fresh produce will be exempt from the ban until 2025. Other items such as plastic utensils from takeaway food outlets and plastic courier packages will also be phased out. By end of this year, the restaurant industry will be banned from using single-use straws. By 2025, towns and cities across China must reduce the consumption of single-use plastic items in the restaurant industry by 30%. Some regions and sectors will also face restrictions on the production and sale of plastic products, although it is not yet clear which geographical areas. China also banned the import of all plastic waste, and the use of medical plastic waste in the production of plastic. The production and sale of plastic bags less than 0.025mm thick will be banned, as will plastic film less than 0.01mm thick for agricultural use. China is already boosting recycling rates and is building dozens of “comprehensive resource utilisation” bases to ensure more products are reused as part of its war on waste...” @guardian #china #recycling #singleuseplastic #sustainability #environment #waterpollution #leadership #cities #sustainablecities @unitednations #progress #biodiversity #chimerica

Today we met at the contaminated site in Madison Heights that was once Electroplating Services and the origin of the now infamous "green ooze." This green ooze is hexavalent chromium, the same carcinogenic chemical that Erin Brockovich is famous for exposing. Inside the site there was also numerous other chemical and acid spills such as copper cyanide among many others. We need a change, people. We need to hold these companies who ruin our environment accountable and the government that lets it continue accountable, as well. This should make you sick. This should make you angry. So let's get together and put a stop to this inexcusable environmental degradation. #ecoanarchist #ecological #ecology #environmentalism #environmentalist #environmentaljustice #green #greenanarchist #greenanarchism #anarchism #anarchist #deepecology #pollution #waterpollution #groundwater #greatlakes #michigan #MI #Detroit

¿How much garbage? 😥⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the World Bank in 2016, nations generated 1.3 billion tons of waste every year. That’s predicted to rise to 4 billion tons by 2100. 46% of waste is organic, so hopefully somewhere in the world there’s an enormous compost pile – there’s not, only 1% of waste goes to compost. 27% of waste is plastic and paper.⠀ .⠀ More than half the world’s population does not have access to regular trash collection. So most rubbish gets dumped on the street, buried or burned. Even in those nations that do have trash collection, 60% ends up in landfill – which is pretty much the same thing, just with men in hi-viz jackets and trucks. ⠀ .⠀ According to a study by Marcus Eriksen from Five Gyres Institute which was published in 2014 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, there are 269,000 tons of plastic in our oceans.⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ Photo: @aishwaryasharmaa_⠀ Post: @backpackerthoughts⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ .⠀ #savetheocean #savetheoceans #protecttheocean #protectouroceans #saveourseas #plasticpollution #plasticwaste #plasticocean #plastickills #plasticsucks #plasticpollutes #singleuseplastic #waterpollution #plastickills #refusesingleuse #reduceplasticwaste #reducewaste #wastefree #plastic #plastico

Water cycle in action! The last time we visited this waterfall there was barely a trickle, then a big storm blew through and it started rushing. Stormwater is such a powerful reminder of how everything is connected . . . #water #stormwater #runoff #tech #software #sustainability #nature #climate #climatechange #iot #bigdata #greeninfrastructure #bmp #stormdrain #ai #cleanwater #drainstoocean #waterquality #waterpollution #startup #pollution #npdes #ms4 #sewage #cso #greentech #flood

My first instagram poem: Shore I walked the shore today In Fanore today Beauties home today Glorious today I had to walk away My mind was going astray The plastics on display Put me in disarray I journeyed to this place to play Or maybe in my very own way To stumble on a time to pray The skies were blue inside was grey I tried to dissociate And cognitively dissonate But evidence in solid state This fact made sure I did relate Disturbing and confusing All of our overusing Me too I was accusing Part of this plain abusing If I go back I know I'll find Loads more plastics of this kind So out of site is out of mind I'll have to leave the shore behind Guilty shamed embarrassed too A full paid up member of this crew Consuming way beyond my due Pretending I don't have a clew I feel destruction in my chest Trying to tell me what is best Thought and habit does the rest As all of my best plans go west Diffused contagion rules the day As I go on to work and play I tell myself that come what may I'll will live on and rue the day #plasticpollution #saveourseas #sealife #waterpollution #irishpoetry #irishpoet
