Glorious is the early morning sunrise. As the fog rolls in across the small lake in a small subdivision in Orlando, Fl. You would never think an entire community surround this lake by looking at this photo. All you see is the serenity and peacefulness of clouds as they float above the lake. Find the peace in every part of nature. Lose yourself in the sounds, the blissful quiet and the calmness before everything awakens. https://fighttofreedomandpreservationofthewild.com/2018/11/29/lakeside-serenity/ - . . . . #lakeviews #earlymorning #sunrise #lakeside #lakesideserenity #serenity #naturepost #environmentallaw #environmentalblog #freedom_preservationofthewild #littlethings #simplepleasures #blogpost #newblogpost #newblogger

Exercise your right to vote, Florida. 🗳 we as Florida’s must stand up for the environment. Red tide has devastated our ecosystem and is continuing to cause destruction. It is imperative that you vote this midterm election. The sake of our environmental future lays in the balance. We must protect our oceans. Prevent off shore drilling on the coast of Florida. End grey hound racing because it is cruel and inhumane to all animals involved. Be the change our state needs. #protrectourstate #protectourwildlife #floridanature #vote #midtermelections2018 #floridamidtermelection #getoutandvote #voteyeson13 #voteyeson9 #saveflorida #freedom_preservationofthewild #changeourfuture #endgreyhoundracing #saynotooffshoredrilling
Serenity. Backyard brook in 📍Brattleboro, VT !! The cascading water over the smooth rocks makes for a picturesque photo op. #natureisbeautiful #brook #backyardbrook #vermont #brattleborovt #travelmore #protectourenvironment
Niagara Falls, NY. 📍 I have been to the beautiful Canada 🇨🇦 side, but I got to view the American side. Some people say it’s not as impressive, I beg to differ. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any magnitude of rushing water, flowing is an awe-inspiring moment. Find your wonder. 💕☮️ 🌎. #niagarafalls #niagarafallsny #niagarastatepark #newyork #buffalonewyork #travel #travelforwork #natureisamazing #freedom_preservationofthewild #findyourwonder #loveiseverything #environmentalblogger
Mah new best frawnddd!! I haven’t named him/her yet!! This gator is ‘bout 3-4 feet!! Definitely intrigued by mine and Tolkien’s presence lol. Love watching this gator glide through the water so gracefully. We need to do more to protect our wildlife. This may be a lake, but they belong in larger habitats, such as the Florida Everglades. Their natural home, we need to clean and restore the flow! #natureisbeautiful #allcreaturesarebeautiful #alligator #floridagator #gorgeous #lakeview #floridabeauty #newfrawnd #cueeriemusic #gracefulswimmers #protectwildlife #freedom_preservationofthewild #protectfloridagators #restoretheflow #floridaeverglades

Pollution. The definition according to Webster’s dictionary is : “the action of polluting especially by environmental contamination with man-made waste.”

Ah, there’s the key word – “man-made waste”. Everything humans create is not natural to the planet, i.e. pollution. Majority of the products created throughout mankind’s history are not from natural resources. From the inception of humans we have always formed and created tools from either things in nature or now, in a lab or a factory. Many of the items we have grown to become accustom to in our everyday lives are actually the very products that are leading the epidemic of pollution.

For example, plastic water bottles. These items are created for individual, one sale use. The demand for single use items has grown exponentially over the years. however, the demand is not only by the “industrialized nations”, such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and so on and so forth. There is a plethora of single use water bottles in “third world” countries all around the world! Why? Well, if the “better” nations are doing this and leading by example, then we must follow suit. The issue is simple: these items take 450 years (yes, you read that correctly, that is FOUR centuries!)

What is the other problem with plastic water bottles? The amount of oil used to create them! So, we are using a non-renewable resource to create something that will not decompose in any of our lifetimes. Some have said it is roughly over 1.6 million barrels of oil to make plastic water bottles.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is unable to provide a real number for the amount of crude oil that is used to produce plastic. Then whom is responsible for knowing these specific amounts? ( I will do some real legal research and come back and update this post).

The purpose of this post was to show that we are responsible for pollution. Everything that humankind has created is with a single purpose. Once those items have fulfilled their purpose they are literally thrown away! There is not even a thought to repurpose them, recycle them, or reuse them in another fashion. This is for glass, plastic, cardboard, paper, napkins and the list goes on!

Collectively, we need to find a way to reduce the DEMAND for single use items. Imagine a world where all you saw was trash every step you made. Oh, wait… we already live in that world.

Here are some images from my stroll in Port Canaveral, Florida this past weekend. I was abhorred to see the amount of trash I did in every single turn!

 

I was disgusted and disappointed. I could not fathom that I descended from one of the “most” intelligent species to see such disregard for the environment. For those of you that are not familiar with Florida’s geography. Port Canaveral is of course near NASA, but it is also the major Port for cruise vessels. That means the ocean is right there!

Below is an image of my location.

One of the biggest causes of sea life death, pollution! So, if you are littering all over near the ocean, odds are majority of this trash is going to wind up in the ocean.

What can we do? I will admit, I did not see a lot of recycling or trash receptacles. However, that does not mitigate our duty to do our due diligence and pick up and throw or recycle items!

We only have one planet, please take care of it. If you have any other suggestions or things you have seen work, please feel free to comment!
