Where do Plastic Discards go?

Ocean Trash

Ocean Trash

Greenpeace has written a great article relating how “a single one-liter bottle” does not break down in the ocean. Instead it breaks into many tiny particles that can be ingested by marine mammals, sea birds or just end up on the beach.

Plastic is used more often than glass for containing foods and liquids. Glass production is more expensive than glass. Plastic is easier to leave on the side of the road, on the beach, or at a park where animals and birds can pick at it, get caught in it, or carry it off to another place.

Choose to live in a clean environment, teach your love ones how to love the planet by discarding items in the appropriate receptacles. If there is not a receptacle close by take it with you so you can dispose of it.
