Mission Blue

Coming to a Netflix near you is a story that has been more than four years in the making. The Directors of the 'The Cove' (Fisher Stevens) and 'Gorillas in the Mist' (Robert Nixon) take you on the journey of oceanographer, Dr. Sylvia Earle as she travels the globe in order to protect our oceans.

The documentary, Mission Blue, weaves together Earle's personal story; from the moment when she first fell in love with the ocean to her daring underwater adventures; as well as the impacts that humans have had on our life source, the ocean; from over fishing, to pollution and man-made climate change. Of course, we're also set to see the amazing inner life of our oceans and all the beautiful creatures which call her home.

For a sneak peak of the upcoming documentary, Mission Blue, which is sure to inspire, watch the trailer below.

Mission Blue will be exclusively aired on Netflix on August 15th.

Idling Your Engine: It isn't good after all

Recently, my boyfriend and I were discussing whether idling your car engine these days was good for the environment or if it was better to simply restart the engine. Whilst we have been traveling throughout South America, we've both noticed that A LOT of drivers leave their vehicles running whilst stationary. Sometimes the engines of car and buses are left idling for up to thirty minutes!

To dispel the myth of the idling engine, here is an infographic shared on Upworthy, which sums it all up perfectly! Simply click the image below.

In a Sea of Garbage

Slate

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American produces 2kg of garbage per day. That's 13 kg per week and 726 kg of waste per year. But could you ever imagine laying in your very own waste?

Well, that's exactly what photographer, Gregg Segal asked his friends, neighbours and some relative strangers to do! In his project, '7 Days of Garbage', Segal aimed to include a range of people from different socioeconomic backgrounds and  asked to compile their garbage for a week.
