Yep, we are used to the endless, unrelenting, thankless task of cleaning up their mess all day long but its just not gonna go well if we leave them the biggest mess of all, a planet that has more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050, that has mounds of plastic with no where to go and this is not to mention further loss of animal species (we have already lost 60% of species since 1970's; see the WWF report released in 2018).
But many of us are guilty of thinking:
"I can't make a difference"
- (said 8 billion people).
If you're looking for some stuff to really make you sit and think about where we are going watch:
- A Plastic Tide
- A Plastic Ocean
- Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
The only way to reduce waste is to reduce waste. We can't recycle our way out of this.
When you know better, you can do better.
