A Christmas scene

First posted in December 2020. The plastic is still out there and getting worse so try and have a less plastic Christmas and more environmentally friendly one.

Some people might say that I’m being very negative about Christmas and I suppose they would be right in a sense. However I’m personally not very happy living in a very heavily polluted world. Is this Christmas scene polluted? Well that depends. We are all living in a soup of microplastic and nanoplastic particles that we are eating and breathing in. How serious is it? We don’t generally know but since pathogens and toxins can hitch a ride on these tiny particles we don’t really want to find out. A recent study found microplastics in the placenta of women so how much damage are we causing to unborn children? So here’s the link to this photo as I like to make connections and join the dots. Young children attending the Christmas events on this scene in a shopping centre are probably already carrying these tiny and potentially harmful particles in their bodies. Now we need to ask how much of this Christmas display is plastic and what’s going to happen to that plastic going forward. Maybe some of it will go on and end up in the future brothers and sisters of the young children who come to see a plastic wrapped Santa. We need to change and we all need to become aware.

The real cost of high street and internet shopping

I first posted this in December 2020. It’s as relevant now as it was then.

The destruction of the environment and the pollution through microplastics is aided and abetted by economic exploitation of third world and usually non white workers. This is the reality of first world shopping all hidden behind the facade created by marketing and advertising. An unsustainable and immoral economic model that staggers from one crisis to the next, https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/dec/22/boohoo-selling-clothes-made-by-pakistani-workers-who-earned-29p-an-hour?CMP=share_btn_fb&fbclid=IwAR3Ja0CnppBxq2GYaKToriFLPEt-4F40qleVihUsCghGUXYKK_4pMarMbo8.

Those that have too much dumping what has been exploited

Blogged almost two years ago in December 2020. Very little, if anything has changed. First world countries need to consume less to tackle climate change.

First world economies work on exploiting third world workers and their environment because otherwise scenes like this would not occur. If workers were paid a similar minimum working wage in value terms to first world workers then world trade would have to slow down. We would have to repair, reuse and recycle what we consume and not just dump it outside a closed charity shop for others to scavenge over. Our first world economies have no values for the destruction of the environment they cause nor of the pollution that they leave behind in far away lands. These places are remote from the bright glossy marketing of these goods in their consumerist palaces of shopping both on the street and on the internet. Time to change our ways and start paying the real price.

Have you enjoyed your plastic meal?

I posted this back in December 2020. It’s as relevant now as it was then as we are still poisoning ourselves.

This is an excellent visual article on how much plastic we are all consuming. What we need to know is what are the long term health effects because of the pathogens and other chemicals that the micro and nano sized particles can carry with them. Where do they end up? Which organs and can they cross the blood brain barrier? This isn’t the way we should be living our lives and it certainly isn’t sustainable yet the fossil fuel corporations want to increase plastic production. We need to stop them. https://www.aljazeera.com/gallery/2020/12/11/in-pictures-how-much-plastic-are-you-eating

Let’s get real

I blogged this a while ago but nothing has really changed. In terms of a sustainable life we have to get rid of the “My car” lifestyle in town and city centres. The “My car” society needs to be replaced by shared resources and public transport along with re-purposing building in these areas and changing parking spaces and driveways into green spaces bringing cleaner and greener habitable places to live.

The original blog

The marketing and advertising industries have been pushing the unsustainable dream life for those with enough money in their pockets and bank accounts for decades. Meanwhile countless numbers of 3rd world workers and their environment have been sacrificed to maintain this neoliberal drug fueled party for those 1st world party goers that are able to get into the club. Thankfully, some are waking up to the fact that the party has gone way too far and on for way too long. Hence some suitable rebellion like this climate change graffiti. Some in polite society may call this vandalism but when big money and fossil fuel corporations have been the neoliberal drug dealers supplying the party goers this is one of the only ways of fighting back.

Christmas starts to haunt us

I blogged this for the last two Christmas seasons and it’s just as relevant. If something doesn’t make us immediately sick or we don’t connect it to an illness that we might have or develop in the future then we tend not to think about what could be causing us problems. The fact is that there are a lot of pollutants associated with Christmas and some of them could be very well accumulating in our bodies. Something we should all consider.

December 31st 2020

Christmas already started to haunt us with the first pack of glitter covered Christmas cards. You’ve probably forgotten about the individual specks of glitter but they are out there somewhere in the environment adding to the countless billions of other micro and nano sized plastic particles that will eventually enter the food chains and the food we eat. Then there’s all the wrapping materials that will end up in landfills or burnt producing toxins or shipped off to a faraway land that doesn’t have proper recycling facilities and no way to deal with the waste. Then there’s all the Christmas trees now decomposing. Maybe they will end up rotting down or maybe they’ll be burnt but what of all the pesticides that they were covered in, what will happen to them? Christmas may have looked pretty but it has been very damaging to the environment.

Rewild and give nature a chance – organic cotton bag

This is the first Scientist and Philosopher Rewild bag. It uses a Teemill base design on an organic cotton bag so hopefully lighter environmental loading than many other materials.

Nature is under attack as the human population shows little sign of stabilising. During the last two centuries or so since the start of what humanity calls progress of the industrial revolution we have grown from 1 billion humans to 7.79 billion in 2020. We have hacked away at forests and ecosystems with no thought to sustainability or the future of ourselves or other species and ecosystems. Controversially, this time is called the Anthropocene, the sixth great extinction in this planet’s long history. We need to learn to live within the bounds of the finite planet and that means moving humans out of places and turning them back into wilderness. Why? Because we are too many and we have taken too much.

Check out how these products are made using organic cotton. We need to live in not just a sustainable way but one that causes the least environmental loading on the planet. You can even send these items back to be made into new things when you have finished with them.

Freedom of the seas design V1B – organic cotton bag

This is the first Scientist and Philosopher bag in the Freedom of the seas – Protect our oceans series. It uses a Teemill base design on an organic cotton bag so hopefully lighter environmental loading than many other materials.

The seas and oceans of the world are suffering in so many ways. There’s plastic pollution and acidification. They have absorbed the majority of the heat caused by burning fossil fuels and are filled with various forms of our industrial waste. Our ships make the world beneath the waves incredibly noisy. They also kill creatures such as whales directly. All the waters are over fished subsidised with fossil fuels and some of the catch fed to herbivore farm animals. We humans have and are continuing to completely mess up this part of our small planet.

Check out how these products are made using organic cotton. We need to live in not just a sustainable way but one that causes the least environmental loading on the planet. You can even send these items back to be made into new things when you have finished with them.

A Christmas scene

I’ve published this for the last two Christmas periods. How much plastic polluting tat is in your Christmas? We need to change.
