greenteenteam #repost @environment_em (@get_repost) ใƒปใƒปใƒป over the years, throughout all our schooling, my sister and i have brought home all our binders and duotangs at the end of the school year instead of throwing them out like other people did. ๐Ÿšฏ 14 years later? each folder you see (arranged in this satisfying colour spectrum ๐Ÿ˜‰) has been used for multiple different subjects as the years and semesters have passed.๐Ÿ“š while looking for a folder for my midterm exams next week, i came across my grade 2 math book that i'm now going to use for my calculus notes 10 years later ๐Ÿ˜… everything we own has far longer a lifespan than we give it credit, so don't chuck it out: #reuse it. #sustainable #exams ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒˆ . . . gtt thinks this is a #perfectexample of how #easy it is to #reusereducerecycle ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ™Œ thank you for sharing @environment_em #follow @environment_em to see more of her #genuis #hacks โœจ๐Ÿ†โ™ป๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒโœจ

greenteenteam #greenteenteam is #thankful for the #success of over 2,000 #instagram #followers โœจ๐Ÿ’–โœจ to celebrate we would like to feature the account of a gtt supporter @orozco_edward ๐Ÿ’š edward is a bird guide, photographer and an ornothogist-in-training from cali in colombia ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด as well as bird watching edward takes part in local conservation work with collective f8 to preserve the natural environment and protect creatures from illegal poaching ๐Ÿ™Œ if everyone worked with positivity like this we would all be working towards a better world for future generations ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’š๐ŸฆŽ edward says we must follow our dreams with courage and passion ๐Ÿ’˜ we agree!! @orozco_edward thank you edward and thank you to all the #instagramfamily followers who have stuck with us and support us as well as the #greenteenteam members #allovertheworld ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿข๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ๐Ÿฆ”๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ’ #repost @orozco_edward (@get_repost) ใƒปใƒปใƒป sigue tus sueños y ve en pos de ellos con valor que por la búsqueda de esos sueños vale realmente la pena vivir la vida #colombiamagiasalvaje #canont5i #colombia #birds_brilliance #natureshots #instabirds #queremal #ig_birdswatchers . . info!! ๐Ÿ˜ scientific name: semnornis ramphastinus common name: compás english name: toucan barbet . this is a typical bird of the humid forests on the western slopes of the andes. seen in the south-west of colombia, normally between 1400 and 2400 meters above sea level, it is still quite common locally but reduced populations are reported due to the loss of their habitat. also the capture for the trade of caged birds, in this case, endemic species of colombia. apparently the toucan barbet are fussy about the size of their nests and like big trees!! sadly deforestation means there are less bug trees and therefore less suitable nesting sites....

greenteenteam ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ there is always hope ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ™Œ #repost @thelittletrunksproject (@get_repost) ใƒปใƒปใƒป ‘a ban on ivory sales in china, the world's largest importer and end user of elephant tusks, takes effect on sunday with wildlife activists calling it a vital step to reducing the slaughter of the endangered animals. china has made a big push to eradicate ivory sales and demand has fallen since early 2014 because of a crackdown on corruption and slower economic growth. public awareness campaigns featuring celebrities have helped boost awareness of the bloody cost of ivory. wildlife groups estimate 30,000 elephants are killed by poachers in africa every year. "it is the greatest single step toward reducing elephant poaching," said peter knights, chief executive of the group wildaid. china has allowed the sale of pre-convention ivory, which refers to products such as carvings and crafts acquired before the 1975 convention on international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora (cites), as long as it is accompanied by certificates... the ban on all ivory sales has already led to an 80 percent decline in seizures of illegal ivory entering china as well as a 65 percent decline in raw ivory prices, said conservation group @wildaid under the ban, china's 172 ivory-carving factories and retail outlets will also close. some factories and shops started closing in march.’ story care @reuters ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ˜

greenteenteam Be like a #ladybird in #2018 ๐Ÿž๐Ÿž๐Ÿž believe it or not a group of ladybirds is called a 'loveliness of ladybirds' #notjoking #lovely #ladybirds #ladybug #dotherightthing ๐Ÿž this is a picture of the the most common seven-spot ladybird (coccinella septempunctata) ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿž the scientific collective name for ladybirds is the coccinellidae, which originates from the latin word coccineus meaning ‘scarlet’. ๐Ÿž folklore says the lady in the name ladybird refers to the v****n mary, who wore a red cloak, and the seven spots symbolise her seven joys and seven sorrows. in the middle ages farmers would pray to the blessed lady, the v****n mary to save their crops from pests like aphids which the ladybird loves... a ladybird larvae can eat up to 5,000 aphids. ladybirds live between 1-3 years and hibernate during winter months. ๐Ÿž if a ladybird is threatened, it can squirt a smelly, sticky, toxic hemolymph liquid from the knees making it completely unappetising to a predator. ๐Ÿž ladybirds lay both fertile and infertile eggs, the infertile eggs are a source of food for the larvae which hatch from fertile eggs. when times are tough, a ladybug may lay an increased number of infertile eggs to give her babies a better chance of surviving. we like that forward planning mrs ladybirdโœจโœจโœจ ๐Ÿž happy new year to you and your loved ones from everyone at gtt .... may 2018 bring truth, love and light and lots of ladybirds.... ๐Ÿž๐Ÿž๐Ÿž๐Ÿž๐Ÿž๐Ÿž

greenteenteam Awesome feet ๐Ÿ˜€ not often one gets so close to the talons of such a large owl ๐Ÿฆ‰ โ–ช๏ธ owls have an unusual adaptation that involves their feet. like other raptors, owls typically have three talons pointing forward and one pointing backward. but owls can rotate one of their forward-pointing toes to the back. โ–ช๏ธ the advantage of this talon talent is evident when the owl grasps its food. when a rabbit or mouse is struggling to get away, it's very helpful to have an equal number of talons on each side to ensure the prey won't get free. โ–ช๏ธ many raptors, including osprey and eagles, have a thick velcro-like skin on the inner side of their feet. this rough skin helps the raptor keep hold of its prey. โ–ช๏ธ thanks to www.projectbeak.org for the info used here ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿ’˜๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘Œ โ–ช๏ธ #owlfan #strixophile #tundragreathornedowl #bubovirginianussubarticus #learnsomethingneweveryday #upcloseandpersonal #greenteenteam #centromonticello #photoark #projectbeak #nationalgeographic #globalgrace
