Can't keep my eyes blind to this reality, can you? We all need to stop excessive plastic consumption otherwise very soon those will be the only animals left...plastic animals.
I came to Cape Town with a mission...not only to help save penguins but also to raise awareness on plastics pollution in our oceans. We use too much, we leave behind too much and we DON'T need that much. 70% of all animal species are already affected by plastic. Deaths are caused by ingestion, suffocation, entanglement, injection...we are slowly killing our planet!
Today I came to the beach to do a cleanup. In about 30 min I collected this huge pile of plastic- some washed to this beach by the ocean, some just carelessly left here by people.
This plastic turtle brought up mixed feelings, someone was passing by, taking pictures of me, thinking that I am crazy, some approached and were curious to learn the story behind it, kids were eager to help collect more trash.
I am sure that my followers are doing something to minimise plastic, as I talk about it so much, but there are still so many people who are unaware of what is going on with our planet. Help me to spread the message, share it with your friends, talk about it to your neighbours!
Comment below which actions are you currently taking to minimise your plastic? What else could you do to help save the oceans?
