Wordless Wednesday – what are we doing to our planet? | Dec 4/19

This 10-year old sperm whale, found washed up on a beach in the Outer Hebrides in  Scotland this past weekend, had an astounding 220 lbs of trash (plastic cups, netting, ropes, etc.) in its stomach.

  4. Thanks for the share it is heartbreaking to see this, I am sure majority of people have no idea and live in complete oblivion.

  5. Plastic has to go too much plastic. We can put our shopping in our bags. Can drink from a glass not a plastic straw. Intelligent life is being destroyed, life which is vital for our Earth. Take your rubbish home and burn it if you can or take it somewhere you can burn.

      How do we get people, govts, and corporations to seriously buy into these changes. It’s good that it’s being talked about now. The next step is to seriously walk the talk.

      • It is, walk our talk. I live in Egypt and they are filthy people. They believe it is govt fault for not provided refuse colloection. I burn my rubbish what stops them from doing the same nothing. They defile the land and Mother Earth in their behaviour. Plastic bags are widely used one reason is to stop people looking at what they have bought. The culture and thinking of the people is not good. The women also throw filthy water and waste from the homes into the streets which attracts vermin, flies, mosquitoes, ants etc. I tell them they are dirty but you cannot do anything with these women. We have to keep hitting hard with posts to make people care about what they do.

  6. Heartbreaking, maddening and cruel!! People don’t think and plastic has got to go!!

      We really don’t think about it, do we? It’s out of sight, out of mind. And we’ve just recently come to learn that all the plastic we carefully put out for recycling is rarely recycled close to home at all. It’s “cheaper” to ship it across the ocean to be sorted or trashed in some very poor country by very poor people. And we didn’t even know. We humans can really screw things up sometimes!
