Check this out: “Midway” Film about the Great Garbage Patch

Ah humans. So superior to the Mother Earth which puts up with us.

Photographer Chris Jordan is doing a fantastic work on Midway Island in the Pacific. It’s so easy to consume something in a plastic container, throw it in the trash can, put it out for collection, and COMPLETELY FORGET ABOUT IT FOR FOREVER.

Meanwhile, this plastic can’t be easily disposed of. So it’s thrown in the ocean by bad businesses and governments and collects mainly in the Pacific where it is creating quite a disgusting and embarrassing problem. We should be very embarrassed. We should be apologizing profusely. But who we are really hurting are animals who can’t call out to us, who can’t hurt us, who we don’t even think about EVER.

Please do your part. RECYCLE and REUSE when you have to buy plastic, but do NOT buy PLASTIC if not necessary!!

Please see Chris’ documentary trailer through the link below. Really amazing imagery.

    I had heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Vortex but had never conceived how bad it really is. Seeing the baby gooney birds dying because of ingested bits of plastic is a powerful way of getting us to use less. The video is very well done…thanks for sharing.

    Something to think about when you leave the house to go shopping. Take a re-usable cloth bag. Don’t buy plastic gifts that will end up in the garbage in a few months. RECYCLE AND RE-USE as much as possible.

    I know that it’s easy to grow lazy unless we are confronted by these images regularly. I made a bunch of positive changes to my habits years ago, but am lazy or careless in other ways. This is a powerful wake up call.
