Why we must reduce our consumption

trashI’ve been reading a lot lately about this idea of floating continents of garbage, but have yet to see a picture. I like to see evidence before I post something. Well, here it is . . . a picture of floating continents of garbage, based on this “trash vortex” study. It’s made up of plastic and all kinds of other evidence of human impact on the planet. Some of the garbage is sinking to the ocean floor and harming marine wildlife.

vortexLet’s think about this each time we buy a 6 pack of yogurt instead of the big container, or bottled water, or plastic baggies. The list goes on. Think reusable. What is the end destination of the products we buy? Disposable isn’t really disposable. It all ends up somewhere.

  1. I am going to buy a home soda-making device this year. It comes with two reusable containers with caps. This will make a huge difference in the amount of plastic I personally send out to be recycled each week. After I get that going, I will be investigating making soy milk and soy yogurt at home.
