Day FiftyEight [2/27] 58:365
Knowing plastic is taking over the ocean stresses me out. The amount of plastic cups wasted at Starbucks and all the straws! The STRAWS!!! It makes my heart race. The plastic cling wrap you get on your Papa Murphy's Pizza makes my gut wrench. The grocery bags, tortilla chip bags, the prepackaged food! All this plastic that's not recycled, ending up in landfills and then some of ending up in the ocean. That floating plastic island in the sea is so disturbing. And if you don't think so, take a second to think of the impact it has on the ONE WORLD WE LIVE IN! All the plastics in the ocean end up in fish (if you eat fish, that can't be good for the health of the fish. If you won't eat plastic why would you want to consume something that has eaten plastic?) this is just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended) of the many various ways plastics negatively effect the earth. Please do what you can to use glass, stainless steel, reusable bags, buy fresh groceries, little things can add up to make a big difference. I'm trying to do my part one day at a time to cut back on plastic!
What can you do to cut back on plastic?
