Fortunately the trend is going towards producing rapidly degrading plastic that doesn't harm the nature.
And didn't California recently ban plastic bags?
I agree! its a huge problem. some cities in California have banned plastic bags but so far not in all cities yet. but the movement is growing. Bans are growing and in some places they charge you extra if you request a plastic bag. I believe in Hawaii, in the major cities, they are banned.

And its not just plastic bags...the various 'scrub' cosmetics that men and women use also contain tiny balls of plastic that enter the sewage/water treatment systems. They are next to impossible to filter out but contain enough plastic to also endanger sea life. I have stopped using these and would recommend others to follow as well as spread the word

Good thing you're doing.

Unfortunately these kinds of scrub-things are popular aboard ships, where there is a lot of oil.

Frederik is getting a good coverage these days.

Here he is in his navy dress uniform, Pia Meisner from BB who posted this gallery hardly hides how she's been drooling: SE BILLEDERNE: Så flot er kronprins Frederik i uniform | BILLED-BLADET

And here he is again, this time with children - and in uniform...: Prince Frederik follows in Mary's footsteps days after she appeared with an assault rifle... by firing off a starting pistol at a children's race - and flinching | Daily Mail Online

Women only see men as sex-objects. We want to be respected for our intellect as well, you know.

How can you not, in this case...?? But I will respect you for your intellect...
Unless you post a photo of yourself in uniform, for comparison...

Yeah, yeah, I took the precaution of blurring the image. Too easy to ID and too many nutcases out there...

In uniform and with children, Frederik really shines
But he also looks fantastic in regular suits as well.

a few more pictures from yesterday's event with Plastic Change

the video of him taking part in the sampling was great

Thanks, dbarn.
Perhaps you should check the links, dbarn. My firewall went up when trying to open the second picture.

Thanks, Polyesco.

Energy saving systems, both in regards as know-how and complete system is a major and growing export here in DK.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2016.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Recently Frederik went to Nyboder in Copenhagen.

Nyboder is housing for navy personnel. Build in 1631 the neighborhood consists of rows of family houses in a distinct style: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...enhagen%29.jpg

There was another neighborhood for navy officers but this is for NCOs and specialists and their families, constituting the core of the ranks and file aboard warships. And it still is, even though today it's for all branches of the military. It's a pretty sought after neighborhood and after centuries of affiliation with the navy there are even several rousing songs about the area.
In fact some of Frederik's mates from the Frogman Corps lived here in his time.

It was here Frederik arrived at the local museum, Nyboders Mindestuer. he was received by the Music Corps of the Navy, as well as the head of the exhibition, Johan Lausten and his daughter Augusta, who is seen in several photos. Present was also the navy chaplain from the navy church, Holmens Kirke as well as "frogs" from the Corps.
The reason for Frederik's visit was that the museum has an exhibition about the Frogman Corps. It's foundation, training and functions and of course some of the equipment.
Followed by uniformed military personnel, including the Defense Chief, without headgear outside (That I should live to see that!) Frederik cut a piece of camouflage netting to open the exhibition. Inside the mood was very merry, yarns, tall stories and anecdotes were told.
In the yard a row of T-shirts used by the "frogs" were hanging and that made Frederik laugh. Obviously a kind of inside frogman-joke.

Here is more about the old houses: http://nybodersmindestuer.dk/

It's hard to keep up with all Frederik and Mary's many daily events... Thumbs up.

But what a pleasure it always is to observe Frederik & Mary out on their many (almost daily) events - all single of them are done with a sunshine attitude and they actually looks like someone who LOVE their job every time

Here more pictures from Frederik's event today presenting the ELFORSK prize:

Kronprins Frederik fodrede fisk med golfbolde | BILLED-BLADET

Today Frederik took part in a golf tournament in Copenhagen harbor, and it seems practically all his balls ended up in the water...
Even though he tried various irons (one being antique) our reporter observed that Frederik's swing was... varied....

However, the many golf balls shouldn't annoy the fish too much - they were made from fish-fodder.

The hole was placed about 25 meters away out in the water and finally at long last Frederik hit the hole - no doubt disappointing the fish...

- It's good and funny attraction which will delight the fish.

thank Muhler. He needs a bit more practice.

How nice that the golf balls were made of fish-fodder, maybe that affected his game

Two more picture from the DRF
Dansk Golf Unions OL arrangement | Kongehuset
He was joined by the Danish golfers heading to the summer Olympics, for the first time in a very long time golf is now part of the Olympics
"After 112 years of absence is golf again part of the program at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August. Denmark places at the Olympics with two male and two female participants. At the Olympics played 72 holes stroke play over four days."

Thanks, Polyesco.
The iron he used was from 1904! I know next to nothing about golf but I guess there has been some development since then.
