I was used to buy the orangeade EPSA and after drink it to refill the bottle with water and keep it in the fridge. But that meant that i was buying a lot of orangeade to drink and change the bottle i had in the fridge after some refills.
But in that way i was creating double damage to the environment, because i was buying more orangeade bottles to drink and after some refills the bottle was sometimes in non-recycling state.
In the Oceans 2019 Festival in Bristol, i found from Marine Conservation Society a bigger bottle than the usual (the one i found it was at 750 ml) with double stainless steel and i bought it. That was the critical moment which i found a very good bottle to have water in the fridge and/or put inside whatever i wanted (tea, orangeade, etc) but also made me to stop buy EPSA orangeade.
And from the double damage i was doing in the environment i went to zero damage in this kind of situation!!! I changed one little habit and went to plastic-free bottle.
Now let's find what other bad habit i have for the environment and how i can change it for the protection of the environment.
I don't want to write many things, because i don't want to brag about myself. The oceans festival was great as the other volunteers and the i loved to volunteer for that great festival for the ocean, wildlife and conservation.
So just enjoy some of my photos!!!
There are many ways to help sharks and raise awareness.
Some months ago (October 2018) i have created this trivia-game for google assistant (https://assistant.google.com/services/a/uid/000000bc987f7de5), which has 10 questions about sharks in Greece. I am going to expand it in the future.
Travelling is not just passion, is a lifestyle. But also can be fun and lifetime experience.
I love to travel. I want to travel all the world. If i could (i mean with my economical status), i would travel all time. My family and friends wouldn't have seen me again. But unfortunately i can't do this (because i am not rich).
But also i prefer to be with wild animals. So every time i travel (a small or big trip) always going to a park, in a forest, or somewhere away from humans (but also i am going to tourist attractions). I really love to take photos of the biodiversity around me and record the animal behavior.
Yes i have fun in my trips, i have adventure, i see things when other people can't (but only in documentaries). But why not helping the scientific community and projects with my trips;
That's why i am participating in conservation organizations. Because i can see things when the other people don't, because they cover some of my expenses (like food, sleep, activities) and that makes it easier to travel more with less money, and because i know that my observations and my work is useful to biodiversity conservation and the environment.
But that's not enough. Especially when my observations can be helpful also to other projects. So i am uploading to inaturalist (and in other wildlife projects) and on that way i am creating a library of what i have seen and where, sharing my photos with the world, scientists and organizations (which i allow to use the data where they want it)...
The cave exploration today had a surprise, a juvenile seal with it's mother. But i won't say where because many fishermen would kill it.
I took this small video and after i tried to take some photos (but failed because of the poor visuality and the flash).
