The leatherback turtle is the largest sea turtle species on earth ranging from 4-8 feet in length and can weigh up to 900kg. They propel through the water using their powerful front flippers that can span up to 3m, while their rear flippers are used to aid with direction (Lasala, 2018). Leatherbacks have delicate jaws meaning they can only eat soft bodied animals such as jellyfish which are composed of mainly water with poor nutrients. Similarly to other species of turtle, leatherbacks migrate extreme distances for breeding and feeding purposes, travelling as far as 10,000 miles across the pacific (Eckert, 2002). Despite this species persisting for over 100 million years, the pacific population of leatherback sea turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) has dramatically declined in the last 25 years which has been linked to fisheries, meat harvesting and in more recent years climate variability (Jones, 2012). Recent studies of climate change projections show that with increased ocean temperatures many sea turtle behaviours have been altered such as nesting times which may lead to altered incubation conditions, breeding success, hatchling dispersal and even sex ratio (Tomillo, 2015). Wastern Pacific leatherback populations have plummeted more than 80% along with Eastern pacific leatherback declining by more than 97% (NOAA, 2016). Many organisations are working hard on solutions to #climate #change and effects it may have on species including the leatherback turtle. Conservation actions are needed for the survival of this species and many others so get involved and do your part to #ReduceClimateChange.⠀

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the flooding in Sheffield. ⁠
⁠
Emergency services are risking their own safety in Yorkshire -and around the world 🌎 - responding to extreme weather events linked to climate change. 🚨⁠
⁠
This climate crisis affects us all. We can't keep ignoring the causes because these disasters will just keep getting *worse.* ⁠
⁠
Tell the government to take action on the Climate Emergency: https://act.gp/34LuOuj⁠

Zara Barcelona

It takes 1,350 gallons of water to make a single cotton shirt. Instead of throwing away your old shirts you can just plant this one!

Vollebak is innovating to combat a global waste problem caused by the clothing industry. It's made from responsibly sourced wood pulp and ink made from algae! Worn like regular t-shirts, but with normal wear and tear like any shirt, instead of throwing it away, plant it in the garden or compost bin and watch it decompose in 12 weeks. 
Would you add this shirt to your closet if you knew it would have a low environmental impact?

The following countries generate more than HALF of the world’s 42 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions each year:

China, 28%
USA, 15%
India, 6%
Russia, 5%
Japan, 4%
(Australia would be at no. 3 If you included exports of fossil fuels)

Despite horrific smog, India has become a world leader in clean-energy development. In some ways, India is a microcosm for our planet. All the clean energy in the world can’t compensate for one billion fossil-fuel vehicles and billions of fossil-fuel machines, and millions of burning fields and trees, etc.

Indeed, Our World Is Like A Terrarium Where A Fragile Balance Supports Life, And That 
Balance Is Out Of Whack 
And 
TAKING US WITH IT. 
Some of us just haven’t figured that out yet.

Now, More Than Ever, 
humanity must become 
A GOOD SHEPHERD FOR OUR WORLD. 
We must learn to 
VALUE THE HEALTH OF EARTH’S ECOSYSTEM 
MORE 
than we value surplus materialism and wealth.

That’s a big mindset change, I know, but only “human change” can preserve the world as we know it today. We must find a way to live as a species and coexist with healthy populations of plants and wildlife all over the world. After all, we live “in” the environment, not apart from it..SAVING NATURE SAVES US.

Certainly, some shred of humanity will survive no matter how bad things become, but I think the world will be a far sorrier place without bees, butterflies, birds, elephants, whales and so on.

Just about everything we love today will pass before our eyes if we don’t change as soon as possible how we live in this world.

This vegan Just Cookie Dough is so delicious we ate the entire jar with a spoon before realizing you’re actually supposed to bake cookies with it. And so we bought another jar and did just that. The results? Amazing! Now we buy two jars at a time…one to eat raw, the other to bake cookies with. #balance
