A plastic future

I found this video on A quest for kinder cuisine a couple days ago and was shocked. I’ve seen and read many things about plastic and how it’s practically taking over the world, but not to these lengths. It’s horrible how much plastic there is in the world and how much damage it is causing. Take a look around you and I’m sure you’ll spot more plastic than you can count. As Karla wrote in her post, this video has to be seen to be believed. After watching, don’t be completely discouraged. There’s so much we can do and I’ve made a little list to help us out. Please do add to it in the comments if you can think of any other ways to eliminate plastic from our lives.

This is terrible! 17 bottle caps in one bird? Seeing what it’s like in such a remote part of the world makes me wonder just how much plastic/garbage builds up in places that are heavily populated with people. Definitely a wake up call!

I hate plastic! It sucks.
I always bring a bag with me when I shop! I wish it was a requirement! There would be so much less plastic used, if everybody did that! AND bottled water! I drink my water from a tap! And it’s still okay!
