According to earth.org plastic pollution is leaving behind impacts for generations to come. If our current rate of pollution continues, experts predict that there will be MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH IN THE OCEAN BY 2050. We need solutions, and there is ongoing research and many promising innovations on the horizon, as well as new discoveries which are happening daily to help reduce plastic pollution. There are scientists working on solutions from NASA Satellite Technology which finds micro-plastics in the ocean, and the mighty fungi has yet another important function, eating plastic, hail to the mushroom! Japanese Scientist and Inventor Akinori Ito invented a machine to recycle plastic bags into usable fuel oil. We simultaneously need to tackle the problem of plastic which is already in the water, as well as what to do with the plastic that is recycled and what needs to be done to reduce manufacturing of single use plastic. Corporations must do better in producing containers made with more sustainable materials at the point of production, that will not leave plastics in the earth for centuries.
On this episode, the shade of green is phthalo (a mixture of yellow ochre and a little cool green viridian), and we get some insight about what work is being done within the scientific community to help reduce plastic pollution and waste, with our resident eco-activist, artist and Sexy Astrologist Charlotte Ghiorse. We also intertwine astrology connections to the environment within the discussion (Mars in Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn).
