⚠WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES⚠ Six out of the thirteen great whale species are classified as endangered, even after decades of protection and while it’s due to several reasons including climate change that affects their feeding grounds and leaves them with less time to forage for food, more and more of these great animals are being killed by plastic pollution, like this young whale that just washed up dead last week on a beach in Sicily. Plastic waste is ingested by these beautiful creatures and they’re also colliding with ships and getting entangled in fishing gear, all with deadly consequences. So, why do whales matter so much — it’s because they’re at the top of the food chain and therefore play an important role in the overall health of the marine ecosystem so we must do a better job in protecting them in order to better protect our seas and other marine life too! Please share this post with your followers and tag people who need to see it in the comments below to help us spread awareness in showing everyone yet another reason why it’s so crucial that we work to #endplasticpollution before even more species, including our own, begin suffering even more deadly consequences! #plasticsucks  #savethewhales #karmagawa #savethereef

We believe we can find ways to overcome our current environmental problems like #plasticpollution and make the world better over time, so we truly appreciate this Dutch design firm’s idea to turn wasted plastic waste into furniture! One of the main causes of our oceans, marine life and environment suffering is that plastic waste continues to fester all over the world and it’s not going away anytime soon so we must consider ALL potential solutions....and this one seems like a solid idea, right? What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know and whether you would use this recycled plastic waste furniture, please share this video with your followers and tag people who need to see it in the comments below because by spreading awareness about this urgent issue, more people will come up with more ideas to help and we can #endplasticpollution once and for all by working TOGETHER! #teamwork #plasticsucks #saveourseas #karmagawa #savethereef

More than 1 million marine animals are killed by plastic each year due to the horrific stat that there are now an estimated 5.25 TRILLION pieces of plastic debris floating in our oceans. We post this video on #worldturtleday to show exactly how plastic is killing our wildlife, like turtles, as it’s a big reason why this ancient group of reptiles is closer to the brink of extinction than they have ever been. Almost every species of sea turtle is endangered so we must act and change our ways now before it’s too late and they are lost forever! Be sure to follow @savethereef and stay tuned for our upcoming documentary premiering in mid-June 2019 for a plan of action to help save our oceans and marine life, but for now please share this video and help us spread awareness about this urgent issue to get everyone thinking about the grave consequences for our planet each time they use a plastic fork, straw, or spoon — we MUST #endplasticpollution before it ends our environment, wildlife and eventually us too.

We love these before and after photos by @haram_khor_ featuring @aishwaryasharmaa_ but people ask us if we want to truly want to SaveTheReef, why even feature plastic pollution at all? Well, for one, we want to save the oceans, marine life and the reef and to do that we need to change our ways and prioritize the environment MUCH MORE…ending plastic pollution is a big part of that process. But more to the point, marine scientists have recently discovered that plastic pollution IS killing coral reefs as a new study based on four years of diving on 159 reefs in the Pacific shows that reefs in four countries — Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and Myanmar — are heavily contaminated with plastic. It clings to the coral, especially branching coral. And where it clings, it sickens or kills. "The likelihood of disease increases from 4 percent to 89 percent when corals are in contact with plastic," researchers report in the journal Science. Coral reefs already are experiencing record amounts of bleaching due to unusually warm water, either from seasonal shifts in water temperature or from human-caused global warming and ”bleached coral is more susceptible to disease since it’s stressed so plastic makes things that much worse." Researchers say they found that corals within yards of each other showed a noticeable difference: Those with plastic were much more likely to be diseased. So, please do pick up plastic and trash whenever you see it and stay tuned for our upcoming documentary that explains all of these issues in much greater detail. And please share posts like this to help us spread awareness about this problem as far too few people know how urgent the situation is becoming! #saveourseas #plasticsucks #karmagawa #savethereef

Roughly 40% of the world’s coral reefs around the world have died and its estimated that 90% of the remaining reefs will die by 2050! Sadly, these 2 pictures in #tahiti were taken just 8 weeks apart by @coralreeffish and you can clearly see the difference as the reef on the right has been bleached which means its dead. Whether or not people want to admit it, sea temperatures ARE rising and #climatechange IS REAL and it’s having deadly effects on our environment! Stay tuned for the official @savethereef documentary that will detail this critical issue and outline what we must do to fix this urgent problem before it’s too late...for now, please share this post so EVERYONE can see what’s happening to our precious #coralreefs all over the world as spreading awareness is the first step in winning this battle! #savetheearth #karmagawa #coralreef #savethereef

We love this new art by @marcel_van_luit and its message that asks “How much longer can we hold our breath?” Because it’s our marine life that produces the majority of the world’s oxygen, so if you like breathing (and living), then you’d better join us to help #saveouroceans before it’s too late; at the current rate there’s going to be more plastic than fish in the ocean in just a few years from now! We can reverse this trend, but we MUST work together to #endplasticpollution ASAP and it starts with all of us spreading awareness about this problem as too few people know about how critical it is to our planet and also our survival! Please share this post, and look through our entire gallery and on @karmagawa too and share as many posts with your followers as possible...the situation is bad, but the fights is most definitely not over yet, it’s just beginning and together we can win! #teamwork #plasticfree #karmagawa #savethereef

We’re big believers in figuring out new ways to solve the world’s greatest environmental problems so we love that these students in Cameroon came up with an idea to turn wasted plastic bottles into boats! One of the biggest reasons our oceans, marine life and environment are suffering so badly is plastic pollution continues to grow at an astonishing rate all over the world and no matter what we do, it’s not going to go away overnight so we must get creative in figuring out potential solutions....and this one seems like a good idea, right? What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know and whether you like it or not, please share this video with your followers and tag people who need to see it in the comments below because by spreading awareness about this urgent issue, more people will come up with new ideas to try to help and we can #endplasticpollution once and for all by working TOGETHER! #teamwork #plasticsucks #saveourseas #karmagawa #savethereef

We love this video and its goal to spread awareness about such an urgent issue: Two synchronized swimmers have performed in a pool full of plastic to highlight the fast-growing problem of plastic pollution. Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe @kate.izzy_official carried out their World Championship routine doing their best to avoid drinking bottles, toiletries, carrier bags and containers as this is the kind of plastic waste being dumped into the world's oceans, causing serious issues for our environment and marine life. The swimmers added, “....thought we should share this, we are proud to be involved in this project & yes, all plastic was reused and recycled” so please share this video with your followers and tag people who need to see it in the comments below because when we work together we have the power to truly influence companies to use less plastic and we MUST act before it’s too late since it’s expected that there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans in just a few years! #plasticsucks #endplasticpollution #karmagawa #saveourseas #savethereef

To anyone who thinks that our environmental problems are too big for any one person to do much good, get inspired by this 9-year-old entrepreneur who has been very busy doing what he can to help reduce plastic waste while also earning money for his college fund! Yes, we do have some very big and urgent problems that we must face head on, but if each one of us does what we can to help in our own way, we will solve this problem together and become more united as a result. So, instead of getting depressed thinking about how big the battle to #endplasticpollution is, think of ways that you can help and we’ll tell you the first step right now: please share this video with your followers and tag people who need to see it in the comments because if one young boy like Ryan can prevent 500,000 cans and bottles from reaching the ocean (so far), imagine what you, your friends and your family are capable of doing to help too! #teamwork #dailyinspiration #plasticrecycling #karmagawa #savethereef

This is a difficult video to watch, but everyone MUST be made aware of how urgent this problem is so please watch and share this important post with your followers. Roughly 50 years ago, only 5% of sea birds had a few pieces of plastic in their stomachs, but the percentage has risen to 90% and by 2050 it will reach 99%! Remember, these birds feed their young whatever they put in their mouths so they are literally feeding their chicks to death due to them consuming all these plastic pieces! From the BBC documentary “Drowning In Plastic” #endplasticpollution #savethebirds #karmagawa #savethereef

We really hate seeing videos like this, but this is the situation we’ve put ourselves in and we MUST not turn a blind eye...instead we must confront this problem head on before it’s too late! Repost from @rebekah_mermaid Just trying to surf here guys...Never before have I actually witnessed so much plastic in the ocean. 💔 With every stroke I took, plastic plastic plastic...PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO OCEAN FRIENDS! This was the worst surf session of my life. Plastic everywhere, with one glass bottle at the end. Never before have I witnessed so much plastic floating around in the ocean. Never before have I felt so disconnected #endplasticpollution #saveourseas #karmagawa #savethereef

This video is absolutely tragic and it’s difficult for us to even watch, let alone share, but people must be made aware of how our plastic debris is killing the environment and marine life like these turtles all over the world. The worst part is none of this plastic will break down anytime soon, so it will impact and kill generations of wildlife, on and on and on...we MUST ACT NOW to #endplasticpollution before we get to point where it’ll too late to fix this (we still have time to fix this right now)!
