Se há coisa que me parece importante dizer é que não podem morrer sem visitar glaciares. Eu sabia que queria vir mas não sabia que não podia não vir. Não sabia que vou ter de voltar e trazer as minhas filhas.. a minha mãe... pôr um sinal sonoro para avisar os meus irmãos. Mal vi o primeiro glaciar à minha frente só tive pena de nunca ter trazido a minha avó. Já não vou a tempo...:(
Ponham na vossa bucket list... comecem a fazer uma ... se nunca fizeram. Temos de sonhar alto para que as coisas aconteçam. Depois de um dia demolidor. De uma magia incrível... parece-me importante dizer que me parece inaceitável que as empresas que levam centenas de clientes, por dia, ao parque natural dos glaciares, utilizem, nas refeições que servem, aos clientes... copos de plástico, colheres de plástico, copos de café de plástico ... enfim... são cerca de 250 pessoas por barco... conseguem imaginar? Contei 5 sacos do lixo enormes a sair do barco. Fomos ver glaciares num parque natural património da humanidade. Que as pessoas não o façam em casa... enfim... cada um sabe da casa que quer deixar aos filhos e netos. Que estas entidades não sejam responsáveis e não dêem o exemplo... ?

This mainly applies to the drink bottles you buy, but in short - you should never reuse single-use plastic drinking bottles. Why?
Most single use plastic bottles will have a triangle with number 1 inside it and usually the letters PET or PETE under. This stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. PET for single use is generally safe and is recyclable. However, reusing them causes the PET to leach into the water to enter your bloodstream and mimic estrogen. It’s also unnecessary because of its carbon footprint. So do yourself a favour and opt for reusable options instead.
Beautiful day of sun and surf on the north shore of O’ahu. But you know what wasn’t beautiful? MICROPLASTICS. Here is 2 minutes of combing (image). We need to do more, end our #plastic addiction. Support groups looking for solutions, volunteer, and reduce plastic in your life. Love to @sustainablecoastlineshawaii@surfrideroahu and others for all they do

Those if you that have been wondering and asking why paper clay . . . .
#1 longer plasticity life
#2 ability to get super thin
#3 paper like texture
#4 attaching plastic handles to bone dry cups
Here is one of the mugs from a live cast I did a while back where I did in fact attach a plastic condition handle to the body of a bone dry mug. This sat and dried I sanded the handle and put it in the kiln tonight.
I jokingly call it cheater clay but it is somewhat magical. It can do just about anything I have ever asked it to do. .

Plastics vs. Glass ⚡️ Which side are you?
Hormones are important. They’re the long-range chemical messengers that effect every single organ in your body. They affect immune function, libido, hunger, your predilection for weight gain or weight loss... EVERYTHING!
This is why I've become interested in the hormone-disrupting potential of compounds like bisphenol-A or phthalates. These compounds are different but similar in the sense that they are plasticizers. BPA is often found in HARD plastic such as hard water bottles, or the linings of cans, whereas phthalates are found in SOFT plastics such as single-use cups and bottles (and fragrances).
These compounds are able to leach into our food, which is accelerated with higher temperatures (hot liquids or foods, or when we cook in these plastics which is a very bad idea). They are also fat-soluble, and fatty foods can leach more, as can acidic foods.
The potential dangers of these compounds are substantial, as they have been shown to have biologic hormone-disrupting activity far below the levels deemed "safe." I highly recommend watching this lecture by Dr. Carol Kwiatkowski of the Endocrine Disruption Exchange on the health dangers of phthalate and bisphenol exposure (chemicals commonly found in bottles, cans, furniture, cars, fragrances, etc.). Link:
She notes that though many companies will remove BPA due to consumer demand, they replace it with bisphenol-S (BPS) which may be at least as harmful. For this reason, I recommend never microwaving in plastic even if it says "BPA-free."

When will it end? The endless stream of greed and consumerism has flooded our minds so bad that we are destroying everything in our path. The earth doesn’t deserve to look like this and we don’t deserve to live like this. Work everyday to make conscious decisions about where you put your money and if it’s ethical or not. We can do better. We need to do better.
With the internet going crazy for #fijiwatergirl, we shouldn’t forget the evils of bottled water and of Fiji Water 💦 🚫
Firstly, let’s talk how stupid promoting single use plastic is at a time when the planet and its oceans are suffering heavily from plastic pollution 🌏😪
Secondly, let’s talk about how superfluous bottled water can be. It is completely unnecessary for anyone who has access to clean and safe drinking water 💦
And do you know what’s inside those water bottles? The World Health Organization found that 90% of the most popular bottled water brands were contaminated with microplastics - minuscule particles of plastic whose effect on human health is under-researched 😰
Microplastics exist in tap water too, but bottled water has twice as much (The Guardian) and only perpetuates the cycle and makes it worse with every bottle purchased.
Add in the fact that Fiji Water is transported from Fiji to the whole world. There is nothing particularly special about bottled water from Fiji. The only unique thing about Fiji is its distance 😫 Fiji Water has one of the largest carbon footprints among water bottle companies!
In a world where 1,000,000 plastic bottles are bought every minute, make sure you invest in a durable, long lasting alternative and don’t contribute to #plasticpollution. We sell food grade stainless steel bottles designed to last decades, and would implore anyone who uses bottled water to invest in one 🌏

These are the results of the cargo ship that lost 270 containers into the North Sea on January 1st.
In the night of 1 and 2 January a cargo ship lost 270 containers into the North Sea. Some of the containers and or their contents were washed ashore on the "Wadden eilanden”. As a result, the beaches were flooded with plastic, packaging materials and other goods.
Various cleanup operations by locals led to the beaches being completely cleared from plastic that had washed up, although the amount of plastic that didn’t come up and is now swirling around the ocean is anyone’s guess. Beachside restaurants joined in the cleanup efforts and local ferry services offered crossing tickets at a reduced rate to cleanup volunteers.
