Taking a stand against pollution

The world is being overcome slowly and steadily by pollution in many forms. One of the worst and most threatening is the non recyclable use of plastics. Plastic bottles are finding their way into our oceans and breaking up into plastic particles that are being eaten by the fish that we consume, forming a huge garbage pile the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean.

One of the growing threats against humankind is increasing pollution, including pollution caused by the use of recyclables like plastics.

Plastics are slowly destroying our world. One day, plastic refuse will dominate the world and overshadow humankind.

We need to be aware. Not using plastic bags at the grocery store. Use paper instead. Not using plastic bottled water, using glass bottles instead or reusable containers to drink from.

There is an island of garbage, much of it plastics that do not decompose and are none bio-degradable floats in the Pacific ocean and it continues to grow.

To help put it all into perspective, I did a video that I hope you will watch and share to raise awareness and to help us think about the problem.

In addressing the problem of pollutants and the growing threat of plastic destruction of our world, maybe we can find an answer
