Consume less

‘We take this situation very seriously, which is why tonight’s oil wrestling event will be followed by a candle light vigil.’

An interesting infographic on the history of oil following the depressing update on DeepWater Horizon. As probably most of you will have seen the photos of the poor birds covered in oil, it’s pointless to rant even more about how badly this situation was managed. And yet, people (at least on this side of the ocean) seem to be more interested in the direct impact on BP and the British economy rather than the disastrous effects on the local economy and environment. Great. Well, as Kitsune Noir phrases it, ‘fuck you if you defend BP. It’s a trillion dollar company that fucked up, not your brother who crashed the family car.’

Keep calm and carry on or keep calm and don’t smoke at beach parties?

Joaquin Phoenix vs. the shoe gods

The video has been sent by PETA to Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin along with a letter that says ‘I think that you will find it hard to continue to sell exotic-animal skins after seeing just how much cruelty goes into making a single alligator or snakeskin shoe or bag. Animal welfare is simply not a consideration at all for those who hunt, poach, factory-farm, and often skin alive animals such as these.’

Yet another horribly wrong aspect of the fashion industry.

what happens to birds when they eat plastic

‘These photographs of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world’s most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.’
