  • WHY SEA ICE IS KEY?
-
Climate control / Sea ice helps keep polar regions and the planet at the right temperature, it's like an air conditioner, but for our planet. The earth depends on the Arctic’s white ice & snow to reflect the sun’s warmth back into the atmosphere, creating a cooling effect. As the ice and snow melts, the darker surface, rock and ocean waters actually start absorbing the sun’s heat, which contributes to melting even more sea ice and to warming the globe.
❄️
Impact on communities / These changes to sea ice mean millions of people must adapt hunting strategies and face travelling over thinner and more dangerous ice. Routes used for generations can be unsafe and patterns of wildlife movement are becoming unpredictable.
❄️
Supporting life / Indigenous peoples rely on sea ice for transportation and hunting, while walrus, polar bears, whales and other mammals and sea birds use it for everything from hunting to birthing. Ice has also shaped how species evolution, wildlife have adapted over thousands of years to the Arctic environment and depend on the sea ice for survival.
❄️
Did you know that the Arctic is warming at a rate of almost twice the global average? Plastic pollution is also increase and mercury is a huge problem in the Arctic. So much beauty to preserve and protect, how come we don't drastically act when we already know the solutions?
❄️
I'm actually working on my second Master's project about the impacts of climate change on the Arctic😃I'll be quite busy until the end of May, I still have 2 projects to do (including this one). What would you like to know about the Arctic & Climate Change? Why do you think we don't act drastically on climate change?😌

  • POWER IS IN OUR HANDS🤲🏽
-
Here is my Wednesday’s confession, I used to be that girl who thought walking around with a disposable Starbucks cup was cool💁🏻‍♀️ Haha it’s a little bit embarrassing… but it’s just to show you that everyone can change😄
☕️
The earth is covered in plastic waste. The to-go coffee culture is a big part of this problem. Take Starbucks, for example. Starbucks uses more than 8,000 paper cups a minute. 1.6 million trees are cut down every year for all of those single-use cups. Most Starbucks paper cups end up in the trash.
☕️
Did you know Starbucks is the biggest coffee company in the world. The impact of its waste on our water, oceans, and health is dramatic. There are around 30,000 Starbucks in the world. The problem is definitely not only this company, it’s a major global issue in many fields. The good news is that we have the power to consume better and choose wisely😃
☕️
Bringing your reusable mug with you does not require effort. It's only a habit to take. Simple gestures like bringing your cup makes a difference. Then you can incorporate other reusable items into your life to increase your positive impact on the environment. Did you know💡
☕️
Around 500 billion disposable cups are used globally each year. 4 billion trees, 35% of the total trees are cut down, are used in paper industries, such as for disposable cups. 99% of these cups are not recycled due to contamination risks.
☕️
Every dollar we spend is a vote for what world we want, either a clean world or a pollute world. Just by using a reusable mug, you reduce your greenhouse gaz emissions, save freshwater and reduce wasted in landfills. So now, what are you waiting for, go get yours today😊 Were you that kind of person who liked to walk proudly with your disposable Starbucks cup? Do you have your own reusable cup? 🙌🏽

  • MARCHING FOR OUR FUTURE🌎
-
I love this picture I took from the last march in Montreal "In solidarity with my planet" & "Vegan for the planet".
✊🏽
Why do students go on strike for the climate? Worried about their future and their planet, young people believe that adults do not do enough to fight climate change. They've decided to get involved and regularly demonstrate on Fridays, to denounce the inaction of governments on this particular subject. According to the mid-term review of the 2013-2020 Action Plan on Climate Change, Quebec and Canada, will completely miss their targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
✊🏽
Why it's so crucial to go out in the streets and ask for change? In order for top leaders to hear our message, it’s crucial to marched in large numbers. Strikes and demonstrations can't be ignored. This is the best way to put pressure on leaders to act on climate change. It’s a march for climate justice, but it’s fundamentally, a march for humanity.
✊🏽
The presence of each person counts. If we want change, we have to act together. Do not leave the responsibility to those who go out in the streets, you and I, must do our part. Actions speak louder than words. More people are in the streets, faster change will come. Children, students, professionals, parents, everyone must come.
✊🏽
Your attendance is essential ‪on Saturday, April 27‬th in Montreal, for the next big march. Please look in your area for the next march and join the global movement😃⚡️Have you ever participated in a march? Do you think it's essential to create change?⚡️

  • I JUST GOT MY DREAM JOB🌎
-
You may be wondering what is my background and what brought me where I am today - caring so much about the ocean and our planet.
🌳
I worked for several years in the biggest sports & music events in Canada. For a long time, I thought it was my passion. I still love sport, music and event very much! Since I completed my BSc in Business Management a year ago, I was confused and didn't exactly know what I wanted. Do I want a job in an office, 5 days a week, in front of a computer, in a stressful environment? I had a huge desire to inspire and inform people. So, I joined an University program in Environment to be able to have a job related to this field. Everything became so clear in my head, the next step was to find a job where I could use my passion.
🌳
I'm extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work for a City, near my home, as an Environmental Patroller. I'm going to have several mandates covering environment issues such as plastic pollution, composting, recycling, water use, and more. My role will be to educate and inform citizens to respect our environment while giving advices. I'm going to patrol the City, walking and biking, visiting businesses, meeting people, giving tips, making sure they follow the laws, attending events, and more. I look forward to start this new challenge, inspiring and informing people everyday. I'll definitely bring you guys with me during this new journey😉
🌳
If you're questioning yourself right now, you don't know what you want to do with your life/career, don't give up. Don't stress too much about it. When you work hard, think positive, take initiatives, you can do anything in life. Your life belongs to you, follow your heart and you'll never be disappointed with your choice✨What are your goals?✨

  • YOU MUST WATCH A PLASTIC OCEAN
-
Plastic Ocean is literally the reason why I decided to stop using single-use plastic in the first place and to reduce as much as possible my consumption of plastic. I had to watched it again recently so I could use it as a reference in my University project about the impacts of plastic✨Are you looking for a movie to watch on your next romantic date? Trust me, this is perfect for romance😉
🌊
Plastic Ocean represents an international team of researchers and environmentalists embarking on an expedition around the globe to investigate the consequences of our disposable lifestyle. The goal of the documentary is to raise awareness about the consequences of plastic pollution in our oceans. Here are some chocking facts about plastic.
🗑
Almost every piece of plastic ever made is still on this planet in some form or other. Half of plastic made is use once and then throw away. Scientists estimate that there are more than 5,000 billion pieces of plastic around the world.
🌊
Did you know plastics find is way into the animals and humans' food chain? Microplastics have been found in commercial table salt. 90% of bottled water & 83% of tap water contains plastic molecules. Plastic are also in our clothing and cosmetics products.
🗑
We are literally transforming our beautiful planet as a opened landfill. It's crazy to think we can consume so much plastic and it wouldn't affect us in any way.
🌊
We can still shape the future that we want. Protect the ocean as if our lives depend on it, because they do. I think governments, companies and consumers need to do their part now. We also need to adapt our current system to a circular economy 🌎Ok..maybe don't watch this movie on your next date to find romance😂 What do you think is the solution to stop the plastic crisis? 🌎

  • 8 WAYS A VEGAN DIET HELPS OUR PLANET
🌎
1.Battling Climate Change - By ditching meat and other animal products, everyone can significantly reduce their carbon footprint. GCE determined that people who eat meat daily produce 2.8 tons of carbon dioxide annually and only 1.1 tons produced annually by vegans.
🐟
2.Saving the oceans - Overfishing kills the ocean. Animal agricultural operations produce massive amounts of waste that pollute rivers and the oceans and lead to ocean dead zones - areas of the ocean with no life. Methane emissions from factory farms contribute significantly to climate change and ocean acidification.
💡
3.Reducing energy consumption - Raising livestock costs a lot of energy. Plant-based proteins can be done with 8 times less energy costs than meat-based proteins.
🥦
4.Combating world hunger - A lot of the food that's grown in the world isn't being eaten by humans. It's estimated that 700 million tons of food that could be consumed by humans goes to livestock each year.
🌱
5.Protecting the air - All the livestock in the world cause more air pollution than all the carsplanes, ships and other modes of transportation in the world combined. Plants clean the air.
🦍
6.Halting Habitat Destruction - Reducing meat consumption is one of the best ways to save endangered species worldwide.
💦
7.Saving Water - Livestock use more fresh water than just about anything else. They're also one of the biggest polluters of fresh water.
🐄
8.Preventing Deforestation - Animal agriculture is culpable for nearly 91% of Amazon destruction. The world loses roughly the size of Panama each year to deforestation, which also accelerates climate change.
🌿
Avoiding meat and dairy is ‘single biggest way’ to reduce your impact on Earth! I definitely think peace start with us, every time we eat. Good documentaries to watch : Cowspiracy, Seaspiracy, What the Health and Dominion. What do you think are the benefits to go vegan? 😊✊🏽

  • ‪In the last 2 days, I watched Mission Blue on Netflix 2 times. Thanks to @apieceofkendi who reminded me how good this documentary is!‬
‪🌊‬
‪Mission Blue is legendary oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle's eye-opening wake-up call to save the ocean. The film follows Dr. Earle on her urge to protect the ocean and the extraordinary marine life. She also talks about urgent threats like pollution, overfishing and climate change.‬
‪🦈‬
‪If we fail taking care of the ocean, nothing else matters. Think about a world without the ocean, we have got a got a planet like Mars. No convenient life supports system. Most of the breath we breathe is generated by the ocean and absorb a lot of carbon dioxide/pollution. In a way we are all sea creatures, every whale, dolphins, coral reef, they obviously need the ocean, but so do we. No ocean, no life. No ocean, no us. Coral reefs need fish, fish need coral reefs.‬
‪🐚‬
‪We are killing trillion of fish and marine animals every year worldwide. Remember - There is no such thing as sustainable sea food & fish in a dying ocean. We don’t have to kill fish to get the omega oils that we need. We can get them from plants that the fish eat, fish don’t make those oils anyway.‬
‪🐟‬
‪We have this idea, we humans, that the ocean is so big and so vast, it doesn’t matter what we do to it. Our ignorance is really the biggest problems that we know face.‬
‪🌊‬
‪If we wait another 50 years opportunities we now have will be gone. This is the moment. Our decisions, our actions, will shape everything that follows.🐢What are your favorite documentaries about our planet, the ocean or about animals? I need some suggestions to add on my list🙂🤙🏽‬

  • Why should we limit the earth's temperature to 1.5°C? Why 1.5°C is safer than 2°C for people and for nature?
🌎
Because the damage associated with a higher temperature, could lead to serious global repercussions. Climate change is already impacting our world, putting wildlife, nature and people’s lives and homes at risk. The difference between 1.5°C and 2°C is huge. It means 3 times as many people exposed to extreme heatwaves at the higher temperature, than at 1.5°C and a massive 170% increase in flood risk compared to today, if a 2°C warming is reached.
🌎
Climate change makes it harder for vulnerable ecosystems and the species which rely on them to adapt at any temperature. But loss of species even to the point of extinction is much higher at 2°C than it is at 1.5°C. It will also affect on the food chain and biodiversity.
🌎
Our coral reefs are already under enormous stress, with bleaching in recent years. If there is no coral reef left in the ocean that means fish and marine species will die.
🌎
Warming in the Arctic is more than twice the global average, resulting in more visible and severe impacts than in most of the rest of the world. If you remove the snow, it will result to major floods, extinction of species and more.
🌎
Scientifically, it is possible to keep the earth’s temperature at 1,5°C. Concretely, it takes drastic changes to get there. The half-degree makes big differences. We know that cutting greenhouse gas emissions are crucial. The IPCC report highlights the need for urgent reduction of global carbon dioxide emissions by about 45% from 2010 to 2030 and they need to reach net zero by around 2050.
🌎
We need to switch rapidely to renewable energy sources. Choose a sustainable lifestyle, such as eating a plant-based diet. Use your voice. Talk about climate change with your friends&family. Vote for leaders who believe in climate change. Unless we act now, a climate catastrophe is inevitable. What you think everyone should do to fight against climate change?😌✊🏽

Concretely, it takes drastic changes to get there. The half-degree makes big differences. We know that cutting greenhouse gas emissions are crucial. The IPCC report highlights the need for urgent reduction of global carbon dioxide emissions by about 45% from 2010 to 2030 and they need to reach net zero by around 2050. 🌎 We need to switch rapidely to renewable energy sources. Choose a sustainable lifestyle, such as eating a plant-based diet. Use your voice. Talk about climate change with your friends&family. Vote for leaders who believe in climate change. Unless we act now, a climate catastrophe is inevitable. What you think everyone should do to fight against climate change?😌✊🏽 . #noplanetb #climatechangeisreal #climatestrike #strikeforthefuture #strikeforclimate #animalagriculture #sustainablity #greenenergy #plantbasediet #veganfortheplanet #extinction #saveourplanet

  • I found these pictures when I was a kid...I remember it was my birthday, I went to the Zoo Granby, a zoo close to my home. I was excited to go because I loved animals. The only thing I remember from this day, is the face of this beautiful gorilla, Mumba. I remember a sad, lonely and depressed animal in a small dark room. My mom and I were so touched by him, we still remember from this day, his face, his eyes, his sadness. We never went back.
🦍
This is me, at 12 years old, at Marineland, Ontario. I remember back then it was the coolest place when we were kids. I went there with my family only one time. I was so sad because there was no killer whale' show that day, so I fed belugas instead. The atmosphere of sadness, loneliness from all the exploited animals at Marineland was indescribable. I never went back.
🐋
I share my story because there is no reason why these kind of places still exist in 2019. We have access to information with our smartphones, why can't people use it correctly? Zoos, Marineland, SeaWorld and others, are prisons for animals. Captivity drives animals insane, they are far from their home and family and employees must drug those animals. It's exploitation, no education.
🐬
Today is the birthday of someone special @walrus_whisperer - Phil Demers. He was an animal trainer at Marineland, Ontario, but he decided, many years ago, to speak up against severe animal abuses that were happening at Marineland. The organization decided to sue him, trying to stop Phil from telling the truth to the world. He also developed a unique bond and relationship with Smooshi the walrus while he was working there. For the last 7 years, Phil has not stopped fighting to save Smooshi with everything he has, which has amounted to huge expenditures of money for legal fees. So please, if you are against animal exploitation and want to help Phil, go on his page, listen to his video (in his bio) and give money to help him and the animals! 🙂 What do you think of zoos and aquariums?

  • 7 FACTS ABOUT PLASTIC BAGS
-
Every second, 160,000 bags are used around the world. All together, it adds up to trillion plastic bags being used every year. In China, 3 billion single-use plastic bags are used every minute!
💧
A plastic bag is used for an average of 12 minutes.
💧
Plastic bags are made from petroleum. The amount of petroleum it takes to produce one plastic bag could drive a car 11 meters.
💧
Only 1 to 3% of plastic bags are recycled worldwide.
💧
Most plastic bags are non-biodegradable. It takes more than 700-1000 years for a plastic bag to fully degrade in a landfill. They are degradable which means that they will break down into smaller and smaller pieces until they form micro plastics but they will never disappear from the environment.
💧
100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags annually.  90% of marine debris is one kind of plastic or another.
💧
If just one person used reusable bags over their lifetime, they would be removing 22,000 plastic bags from the environment!
💧
What can we do?
-Use reusable bags when you are shopping & buying food and encourage others to do the same
-Give reusable shopping bags or cute tote bags as a gift (go check the link in my bio to find super cute bags with my discount)
-Ask your local grocery store to stop giving plastic bags
-Reuse as much as you can plastic bags you already have in your fridge from veggies like carrots bag, celery bag, etc.
-Buy in bulk, reduce plastic packaging and choose the fresh products over packaging options
-Boycott single-use plastic
-Sign petition to ban plastic
-Spread awareness & lead by example😉🙌🏽

  • WHAT IS CLIMATE CHANGE?
-
Climate change is the process of our planet heating up. The Earth has warmed by an average of 1°C in the last 100 years, and although that might not sound like much, it means big things for people and wildlife around the world. The changing climate will actually make our weather more extreme and unpredictable.
❄️
Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than all transport. Believe it or not, cows eating habits contribute towards greenhouse gases. Just like us, when cows eat, methane gas builds up in their digestive system and is released in the form of a fart! There are almost 1.5 billion cows releasing all that gas into the atmosphere. Of course, we can't forget the extreme amount of water and land used to feed those animals. And lastly, animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction.
❄️
Over the past 150 years, industrialized countries have been burning large amounts of fossil fuels such as oil and gas. The gases released into the atmosphere during this process, trapping heat from the sun and warming the Earth. Fossil fuels are dirty energies that harmed the environment and our health. Definitely a big big player in global warming. Many other human activities directly affect the climate.
❄️
A warmer climate could affect our planet in a number of ways:
-Temperatures will continue to rise
-Changes in precipitation patterns
-More droughts and heat waves
-Hurricanes will become stronger and more intense
-Sea level will rise 1-4 feet by 2100
-Arctic likely to become ice-free
-More diseases worldwide
-Mass wildlife extinction
❄️
How can we help prevent climate change? Small changes in your own home can make a difference, too. Eat a plant-based diet, walk instead of using the car, consume less and choose eco-friendly products, boycott plastic, compost, reduce your food waste. You can make a difference🙌🏽

  • ‪Yesterday was INCREDIBLE! We were 150,000 people asking for climate action in Montreal! It was the biggest march that took place! Over 1,4 million young people in 125 countries skipped school, inspired by Greta Thunberg, to demand stronger climate policies in what may be one of the largest environmental protest in history. From Australia and New Zealand, to Asia, Europe, Africa, North America and South America, students from all over the world took the streets to demand change now.‬ "Biggest day of global climate action ever”says 350.org
🌎
‪"This movement had to happen, we didn't have a choice" ‬"I don't want you to be hopeful, I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And I want you to act." - said the Swedish activist, 16 years old, and strike leader @gretathunberg
🌎
Many students expressed anger, fear and disappointment that adults have not acted. Many also expressed hope for a green economy at the United Nations believe is necessary to forestall catastrophic climate change.
🌎
We need to do way more, as individual, to put more pression. You vote every time you buy something, you vote every time you eat something, you vote every time you do something. Please choose wisely. And please join the next march, we need everybody to be apart of the movement, actions speak louder than words.  And this is not even the beginning. Because we have done our homework✊🏽

  • Here is my story! Why do I care so much about animals and our planet?
🌱
In December 2017, I went vegan right after watching Gary Yourofsky's speech on YouTube. Becoming vegan has made me realize a lot of things. I became so curious: I watched every documentary I could find about animals, the ocean, the environment, and climate change. I realized everything was connected. I wanted to know the truth, to learn about the impact we have had on our planet. The fact that we are intentionally participating to the earth’s sixth mass extinction made me become an activist. The majority of the population doesn’t talk about climate change and doesn’t understand it.
🌱
Why are vegans so passionate about animal rights and the environment? We have a duty to share the truth. Industries hide information to make sure we consume their products without knowing the real cost of it.
🌱
We are killing billions of animals, destroying the rainforest and the ocean, polluting the environment and buying products that are killing us. 1 year later, I'm so happy I made the connection. Being vegan/an environmentalist is a gift to share with others.
🌱
If you have crucial information, share it. Talk about these major issues. Get active. Participate to marches & sign petitions. Spread awareness every day.
🌱
It’s cool to care about other things than your friends, your family, yourself, your job, your love life... You become a better person when you start caring about all animals, our planet, and humanity. Veganism truly changed me for the best. What is your story? How do you help our planet?

  • While I was in NYC few months ago I was sad and shocked to see every single trash around Manhattan filled like this one - mostly busy areas. But the problem is in every city - worldwide. How many coffee do you need in a day? How many single-use plastic do you need? Majority of people go to @starbucks @mcdonalds @timhortons everyday when they work and use new cup every time. Why don't you just bring your own reusable cup? What is it that you find so difficult to think about it?
🌎
We can't continue to live like this. 91% of plastic is not recycle, there is too much plastic to recycled. There is plastic everywhere, animals eat plastic, we eat plastic. In the process of breaking down, it releases toxic chemicals which make their way into our food and water supply.
🌍
Ever feel like your small actions don't make a difference? Like refusing plastic straws and bringing your own reusable grocery bags isn't enough to save the world?
🌏
Your daily choices DO matter - A LOT. You make countless choices every single day. And if you consistently choose to act with respect for the planet, guess what - you ARE saving the world.⁣ We talk so much about plastic that change is happening!
🌎
Places around the world, like U.K., Taiwan, Seattle, San Francisco, Montreal and Vancouver, are joining the plastic-free movement. That means banning straws, microbeads, plastic bags - many more. But stop waiting for big changes, start with yourself. It's time to care. Stop talking and lead by example💫

  • Here are 7 ways to save our oceans and secure our future. But why should we care about the ocean? The ocean is the life support system for the planet. 50% to 70% of our oxygen comes from the ocean, produced by phytoplankton. The ocean regulates our climate, absorbs carbon dioxide and pollution. 90% of the big fish are gone. More and more dead zones. Over 150 million tones of plastic are in the ocean today. Overfishing destroys ecosystems. So the question is, what can we do to help?
🌊
1. Reduce your fish, seafood, meat and dairy consumption. Going #vegan is better for the environment. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change and greenhouse emissions - directly killing the ocean.
🌊
2. Limit your use of plastics and single-use plastic. Buy things with less packaging and use reusable items. Consume less.
🌊
3. Educate yourself and lead by example. Watch #documentaries like @seaspiracy @cowspiracy and Plastic Ocean. Watch @captainpaulwatson on Youtube. Tell your friends and family about what you have learned. Use social media to raise awareness. Lead by example use #reusable items.
🌊
4. Use environmentally-friendly products. To personal care items, cosmetics to cleaning items. Avoid products with microbeads.
🌊
5. Get active. Participate to #cleanup on a local beach, park or city. Pick up trash during your walk. Join environmental marches. Sign petitions. Vote for leaders that support climate action and conservation. Put pression on your local governments and local businesses.
🌊
6. Support organizations that are helping to save the oceans like @wwf @seashepherd .Vote with your dollar. Follow their work on social media. Share useful information.
🌊
7. Don't visit #aquariums, #seaworld and #marineland. They are jails for marine animals. #Captivity doesn't help conservation. There are plenty of organizations who are raising funds for animal conservation that do not require the suffering of another species.
🌊
Do your best, your best is still better than doing nothing at all😊
