If you want some wow, just look for the guy wearing all black.
Honestly, I was expecting a field of tulips in full bloom. But *SIGH* it was just a field of greens instead.
Well, Hyacinths did well so here’s hyacinth of the valley!
HAPPY EARTH DAY!! 🌏 💚 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The plastic crisis is truly a global one and the numbers are staggering: A 2015 study found that between 4.8 and 12.7 million metric tons of plastic makes it into the ocean from land each year. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight.
Since plastic is synthetic, there are few natural processes that break it down, allowing bags, straws, and packaging to linger for decades if not centuries. And we’re not very good at containing it to landfills. About 32% of plastics make it out into nature, where it often ends up in the bellies of fish, birds, and whales. And as it turns out potentially in our stomachs too.
In one investigation, the nonprofit Orb Media found plastic fibers in 83% of drinking water samples all over the world, with some of the highest levels in drinking fountains at the US Capitol. In a separate investigation published this year, they found microplastic particles in 93% of the bottled water samples it tested. This included 250 bottles from 11 leading brands including Dasani and Aquafina.
Always bring a bag with you on your hikes for trash and use reusable bags on your shopping trips. We only have one planet, let’s make it last.
Magnifique journée au coeur de la Patrouille des Glaciers ❤. A défaut d'y participé, nous sommes montés à la Rosablanche pour encourager les Patrouilleurs, avec le Cervin en toile de fond. Un soleil radieux 🌞, des milliers de spectateurs le long du parcours et une ambiance de folie 🎉! Je suis admirative tant l'épreuve est coriace! Zermatt, Tête Blanche, Arolla, Col de Riedmatten, Rosablanche, Verbier... 53km pour 4300m de dénivelé positif. Rien qu'à l'évocation de ces distances à ski, j'en ai la chaire de poule 🐓... Qui sait, dans deux ans peut-etre 😸...
