Conservationists are Sexy No Comments

Hey, did you know there’s a whirl pool in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that is almost 1500 miles wide? Not a big deal except it’s filled with tons of plastic that washes out into the ocean. It’s a sludge of rotating plastic particles entering our sea life and finding it’s way into the food chain. So don’t forget to throw all those plastic utensils, bottle caps, water bottles, blister packages and stir straws into the recycle bin. Yah, I know they don’t have a rounded triangle with a number on it but they should! Oh, and think of all that plastic you throw into the regular trash from the bathroom. Plastic that holds cosmetics, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, underarm juice, on and on and on.
