This poor swan built their nest out of the garbage at an Amsterdam canal. This is the world we've created for animals. 😡

Coca Cola produces 3 million tonnes of plastic packaging a year – equivalent to 200,000 bottles a minute. Send @CocaCola a message. It's time to end #plasticpollution. #ActOnClimate #Useless #WasteLess #BuyLess #BreakFreeFromPlastic #nature #BuildBackBetter

No. plants or garden justify the use of peat. Ever.
Some gardeners are missing the point: It really doesnt matter how well plants in your garden grow or do not grow, no plants or garden justify the use of peat. Ever. We must therefore adapt- even if that means a loss of quality (which I firmly believe is not the case)

Thrilled to see early July-sown Delikett snap peas in #polytunnel flowering again/producing pods! Mice ate 1/2 of them last month and I was so busy I didn't get round to clearing plants. A useful late #crop to remember for next year! #Gardening #growyourown #organic #HealthyFood

Yes, yes, yes, of course. But the real challenge is how to get this message to the *millions* of folk who have no clue what peat is, zero awareness of why they should choose #peatfree & are still out buying what to them is just a bag of dirt. Far easier to legislate & ban peat.
It’s time for every gardener to play their part and ditch peat.

We don't yet know everything about how #soil life interacts as a community for the benefit of all other life and #climate which depend on it. Soil-less #organic is like feeding humans only #chemicals to keep them alive, but omitting vital still unknown #nutrients!via @LawWoodward
It never occured to us back then that someone would define organic in such a way that you end up with soil-less organic production, like in America with hydroponics and confined feed lots. Working with the soil was a given, we didn't even mention it @LawWoodward #organicmatters21

Overall, #Budget2022 has similar trends to 2021 climate funding, incl. 19% incr. to @Dept_ECC w/ €202m for energy retrofit (22k+ homes) but not enough IMHO to reach scale needed for ~7% annual emissions reductions and, most worryingly, #BiodiversityLoss practically ignored.

The River Wye was running like drinking chocolate last week-in fact they state of it brought me to tears. Please sign this letter
Healthy rivers contain more oxygen, more life, and more carbon - vital in helping to combat the climate emergency. But the River Wye is in bad condition. Chemical runoff from chicken farming is destroying the river. Help us demand action!! 👇 ☠️💧 wtru.st/save-river-wye
