WHEN YOU THROW IT AWAY, THINK. THERE IS NO AWAY.
Continuing with the same theme – the environment. We often talk about throwing things away. But there really is no such thing as “away”. Just because our rubbish may be out of sight, does not mean it should be out of mind. Everything we “dispose” of winds up somewhere else. Perhaps it ends up in a landfill, oozing toxic nasties into the environment. Or maybe it finds its way into the ocean, filling the bellies of our marine animals.
Biodegradable is the new marketing buzz word. But as we now well know, just because something breaks down, doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. Plastic micro-particles float in our oceans and accumulate in our sealife.
Say NO to plastic bags. Avoid products swathed in plastic packaging. We all need to do our bit if we want there to be a planet left for future generations.
