A FRIEND SAYS IT ALL- PLEASE READ!


PLEASE GO AND READ THIS POWERFUL MESSAGE FROM A DEAR BLOGGER FRIEND OF MANY YEARS!


there is a giant circular whirlpool in the middle of the pacific Ocean which should be absolutely pristine. Scientists collect thousands of pieces of Plastics from this area that DO NOT EVER BREAK DOWN!

EVER

EVER

I saw this on a Nat/Geo or IFC Film Documentary and could kick myself for not remembering the name to give you a link to the research. However, Mark has captured even more of our Self Indulgent death through Commercialism, & "RELIGION", in our society.

Please take a second: especially at this time of year as we start re-evaluating Family, Friends, Belief Systems and Core Values, to read this and soak it in!

SEE THE 2 PICS BELOW FOR ILLUSTRATION


THIS COLLAGE MAY LOOK "PRETTY" AT FIRST GLANCE. IT IS MADE UP OF PICTURES OF DIFFERENT BOTTLES AND LITTER ON A 300 YARD WALK TO MY MAILBOX, DOWN ONE DIRT ROAD- IRONICALLY CALLED SUNSHINE DR. PLEASE LOOK CLOSER AT ENHANCED PIC NEXT........

Plastics "r Us! RE-Cycle is an oxymoron- To CYCLE (or Consume) appropriately in the first place..would drop the need for "RE"!

  2. It's strange - when I was a kid, my mom saved jars from pickles and peanut butter to put leftovers in or jams. There were never enough baby food jars for school paints. Nothing came in plastic tubs but when things did, we used them for leftovers (probably not a good thing knowing what we know now and also using microwaves). The grocery store only had paper bags. They were saved and used for other things. Now, we buy special things for leftovers and throw out the free containers. We have no clue any more about conservation.

  4. Jeannie-- Summed up Beautifully---we had the pleasure of eating the awesome contents of our Drinking Glasses---NO Labels and NO Lead--you just knew it was a Jelly Glass, and if it broke--there were always next week's PBJ's to replenish the pantry.

    And with NO DISHWASHERS but us--They didn't have to be spotless---but there were no Water Spots I can remember on Jelly Glasses!!!!

  5. You bring up a really good point here - it's best to consume less in the first place.

  6. I recycle (our city has curbside recycling) and re-use a lot of things. I'm not rich and grew up where 'waste' was a dirty word.

  7. If you remember the link to the documentary, please pass it on to me. I'd like to learn more about this. Mark's an incredibly gifted writer and his posts are usually thought provoking. That was one of them.

    LuLú- I sure will- It started with this little plastic dude- (His name was the name of the basic plastic building block- for all things plastic). named so and so- and followed him all the way to the Pacific Ocean where those currents all eventually congregated, and dumped all the trash!

    It was awesome and well done.

    Happy Turkey Day
