Great for work or back-to-school, these nifty boxes and bags pack a meal without packing the landfill with plastic.

Does the ocean calm you, fill you with a sense of wellbeing, and make you feel inspired? And does pollution in all its forms spur you on to clean-up our precious environment? If so, you should enter @bodhisurfschool's 4th Annual Ocean Guardian Contest, which aims to reward the environmental leadership taken everyday by individuals. You will be in the running for a surf and yoga camp for two people in Costa Rica, and a number of other great prizes. So what are you waiting for?

The UK Environmental Audit Committee calls for a full legal ban of plastic microbeads in personal care products, preferably at the international level.

US Department of Agriculture researchers have developed a new milk (casein)-based film that appears to be significantly stronger than existing biodgradeable bioplastics. Via TreeHugger

See the following article also, which discusses the limitations of such a film, in particular milk-related allergies:

This is great news, unless you're sensitive to casein, or are vehemently opposed to the dairy industry.

Excellent - but sobering - overview in @Nature​ of the state of plastic pollution in the world's oceans. The keys for positive change: "reducing the use of plastic, improving waste management and recycling the materials to stop them from reaching the water at all."

Scientists know that there is a colossal amount of plastic in the oceans. But they don’t know where it all is, what it looks like or what damage it does.

Bad packaging. Microbeads. Plastic microfibers. Let’s create real solutions. Are you in?

A new Greenpeace report looks into the impact of microplastics on oceans and aquatic organisms.

Just a day after a cross-party group of MPs called on the Government to ban microbeads, a new Greenpeace report lays out the science on the impact of microplastics, including microbeads, on our oceans and our seafood.

This is ‪#‎BacktoSchoolWithoutPlastic‬ Tip no 5: Instead of using a plastic ice pack containing unknown "non-toxic" chemicals, why not fill up a drinking flask with pure, delicious water. Leave room for the water to expand, and freeze overnight. Not only is it ‪#‎plasticfree‬, but it's also a versatile product that can be used for other purposes as well...

Read our blog about it:

This set of eight maps provides an eye-opening global perspective on the extent of the plastic pollution problem in the world's oceans.

The world’s oceans are awash in plastic pollution, and as these maps and charts show, the situation is poised to worsen unless drastic changes take place.
