It is also going into our system as humans, so even if you don't care about our animals - think about your health.
Yes it is. People wouldn't believe the amount of it they consume each year.
Sad. Reprehensible. All too common.
thanks for sharing, important cause
Discarded plastic does cause much animal suffering to animals on land and in the sea and the only solution as has been suggested is a BIO-DEGRADABLE PLASTIC. With so much advanced technology available surely this is not beyond the capability of our scientists? funded by immensely weathy plastic manufacturers?
This arcticle kind of sarcastically says why we are going to have to send people to Mars... http://www.seattlepi.com/national/article/Contrarian-moment-Wait-what-are-we-doing-to-4286355.php
If the environment goes, we'll soon follow.
If you think that plastic is okay, just open your eyes and look at the pictures! Unnecessary suffering is everywhere, and we can do something about it. We can end it!
Why is it important? Look at the pictures.
It not only hurts our environment, it also hurts wildlife too! Lets be more aware of what we our doing and carry a reusable bag in the car!!!
We've got it all wrong.
Horrifying. I can't believe this is what our convenience does to wildlife.
In order to practice compassion for all beings, we examine our own actions.
