You give me a gift. It's the most beautiful, unique, wondrous gift I've ever received. It's full of life, mystery and is inspiring at every glance. Imagine I take that gift and pretend to love it. I take all of it's resources and use them as I wish (never giving back as much as I take, of course) and then I proceed to simply take a giant crap on it!! Too graphic? Nope, just a perfect depiction of what we're doing to our planet. ...the pictures below are graphic, but necessary.
Seriously guys. I know I don't need to say much when it comes to this issue. We all know what's going on, we know what we can do to help reverse the problem, we know what we are doing that is contributing to the problem...yet our planet looks like this. Plastic is poison when consumed. The fish, birds and other creatures that eat it are then, accordingly, poison. So, knowing that fish is one of our healthiest food resources, why do we want to poison them. Or any other creature, edible or not!?!
Unbelievable. I cannot believe that the largest of the 5 HUGE trash swirls in our ocean is TWICE the size of Texas and deeper than you want to know!!!!! What's in them? Mostly plastic bottles and plastic bags. Pathetic.
Why?! Why are we dumping barges full of trash in the ocean?? That's right folks, the swirls are not there because of littering alone. We take barges full of trash and dump them in the ocean as if we have a giant flush handle that can be pulled.
Use re-usable bags when you shop, so you don't have to use plastic ones. Plastic bags are actually illegal in a lot of countries and in others they charge you to use them. Why aren't we following the example? Are we 'eco-friendly' only when it's hip?...like 'green' baby clothes and fashionable 'green' home products?? I think we can do better.
Why are we so irresponsible? I mean, why are there thousands of gallons of oil spilling into the ocean?
CHECK YOUR MEDICINE CABINET NOW!!! Can you believe this horrible absence of quality standards?? The 'trusted' brands, Tylenol, Motrin and Benadryl have let us down once again. That's right, this has been an ongoing problem and I've never been happier that I am cheap!! Well, I'm a label reader anyway and let go of 'name brands' years ago when I turned the bottles around and found that the ingredients are exactly the same. The problem in this case is the quality standards. Large, well known companies expect the FDA to be lax with them since they are supposed to be the best. The reality here is that since the FDA stays on top of smaller store brands, their quality standards are constantly kept up to par! The concentrations in the name brands have been found to be up to three times what it is supposed to be and they've found 'chunks' and particles in the syrup. Are you kidding me??!! Unacceptable....and these are the people you trust to approve the food you eat too!
