oceanic pollution


A Tasty Solution 

Saltwater Brewery created an answer to floating plastic six pack rings harming the ocean environment and its creatures. Their rings are edible and made from wheat and barley leftover from the beer making process. It’s a great way for the brewery to cut back on waste product and provides a snack for fish and other sea dwelling animals. If more companies recycled like this maybe we could cut down on the amount of garbage polluting our waters daily.

Kudos, Saltwater Brewery.

curiously, “mente” is the portuguese word for “mind” but also for a form of the verb “lying”. somehow, it does not seem like a coincidence. the human mind creates everything around us but it doesn’t rest until it comes across with consequent destructions. maybe, these destructions are based on the lies our minds plant upon ourselves. this painting is based on those type of thoughts and feelings, as well as some environmental concerns. we gotta stop lying to ourselves and start caring about our common home, earth

Sadly, more often than not, our fun and photography dives turn into clean up dives.

This could’ve been easily recycled. We can all do our part, and we can all educate others to do theirs too!

Buy less, and buy stuff made from stuff that’s not destroying the planet. Please.


Yes yes yes! What a wonderful idea! A 100% biodegradable six-pack ring, plastic-free and made of barley and wheat leftover from the brewing process. 

We need every beer company to support and switch to these edible six pack rings! In the meantime and if you must purchase a six-pack with plastic rings, don’t forget to cut it up before you throw it out, That way, if it accidentally ends up in the water, no animals will get entangled in the rings. 

For every pound of tuna we fish from of the ocean, we are now putting back two pounds of plastic. This is a transfer ratio that we cannot continue to sustain.
