💚.. The ocean is 70 percent of our planet, and the earth’s most valuable natural resources. They govern the weather, clean the air, help feed the world, and provide a living for millions. They also are home to most of the life on earth, from microscopic algae to the blue whale, the largest animal on the planet. Yet we’re bombarding them with pollution.
💚Trash in the Ocean
The majority of the garbage that enters the ocean each year is plastic—and here to stay.By their very nature—with all streams flowing to rivers, all rivers leading to the sea—the oceans are the end point for so much of the pollution we produce on land, however far from the coasts we may be. 💚Ocean Acidification
When we burn fossil fuels, we don’t pollute just the air but the oceans, too. Indeed, today’s seas absorb as much as a quarter of all man-made carbon emissions, which changes the pH of surface waters and leads to acidification. 💚Ocean Noise
The ocean is far from a “silent world.” Sound waves travel farther and faster in the sea’s dark depths than they do in the air, and many marine mammals like whales and dolphins, in addition to fish and other sea creatures, rely on communication by sound to find food, mate, and navigate. But an increasing barrage of human-generated ocean noise pollution is altering the underwater acoustic landscape, harming—and even killing—marine species worldwide. 💚Offshore Drilling
In addition to noise pollution, the oil and gas industry’s routine operations emit toxic by-products, release high levels of greenhouse gases, and lead to thousands of spills in U.S. waters annually. That oil can linger for decades and do irreversible damage to delicate marine ecosystems..
Bali, Indonesia, is an alarming wake-up call for us all.

I realized this work in Genk (Belgium) at Heempark for Lavazza 2019 calendar in partneship with United Nation Environment Programme.
Your will can make the difference, always.
During the last century Genk was known for his high concentration of coal mines where thousand of immigrants, especially Italians, went to work.
The living conditions for the workers and the citizens where critical, the level of air, soil and water pollution were at its maximum.
When in the 80s the government decided to close the mines Genk invested little by little in a sustainable development and started to convert the mines space into green places in order to increase the number of bees that were drastically reduced due to the pollution.
Now the city of Genk has 69 gardens where everybody can grow it's own organic food and help bees to spread in the area.
Moreover the entire project supports the Global Goals for Sustainable Dlevelpment.
