  • With increasing temperatures our environment is changing.

Declining ice levels have pushed animals into different territories, creating greater competition for resources.

Numbers of arctic foxes are declining for this very reason.

We can all chip in to do our part to help reduce global warming. 
Here are a few tips we think are worth trying out: 
1) Reduce, reuse, recycle
2) Take public transportation or walk
3) Buy local 
Do you have other ideas to share?

  • Gorgeous views and crystal clear water are only possible if we help to keep them that way. Currently we’re dumping 8 million tons of plastic into our oceans each year. We have the opportunity to stop ocean pollution by taking simple steps everyday to reduce our use of single use plastic. 
Have you tried stopping your use of plastic?

  • Did you know we can all help save polar bears by planting trees?

This is known as "aforestation." As trees absorb carbon dioxide they help reduce global warming.

The greener our planet is, the safer polar bears' habitats are. 
Can you think of other ways we can help to reduce our carbon footprint?

  • Do you have a sustainability mind-set?
Having sustainable habits is becoming more common. Back in the day, people were sometimes embarrassed  to admit they bought something used or wore something second hand. 
Today, attitudes are shifting; these habits are celebrated. Not just from a sustainability perspective – but because it shows personal taste and a move away from the “mainstream. “

  • Climate change is a serious concern for all living species. Solutions are needed to develop a more sustainable life. One solution crucial to the achievement of global sustainability is technology. Green tech solutions vary in shape and size but have the same goal – to integrate the impact of climate change to future generations. These solutions support and enhance the sustainability initiatives that many organizations and cities have already implemented. Here are some cities that have adapted and promote green tech. The good news? The list is growing! New Delhi's Smart City, Portland's Water Power, San Diego's Car-Power Grid, Perth's Wave Project, Johannesburg's Kinetic Walkway

  • "Convenience is absolutely key. If it's not convenient it's very difficult to get people to do something." We couldn't agree more and it proves that even if we've come a long way towards a more sustainable future – we need to tackle the challenge head on, by making sustainability mainstream.

Building our future together is the only way we'll manage to slow down the effects of human behavior on the planet.

  • Vitamin Sea. Our generation loves to capture moments and gorgeous views around the globe. That’s why we have to fight to keep our environment (especially our oceans) clean and healthy. We can all take steps to help, like reducing your carbon footprint (think: saving energy, riding your bike, and reducing your use of single use plastic). #noplastic #vitaminsea #oceans #vacaymode #beachlife #shareubs
