I was reading one of the blogs I subscribe to, 5 Minutes for Going Green and saw this shocking illustration. I knew there was a mass of plastic floating around in the ocean, but this diagram sums it up quite well. Horrifying, isn't it?
If this isn't enough to make you swear off plastic forever, I don't know what is.
Use cloth bags!
Find a place that will recycle your plastic bags! (I know Walmart does, as well as a few other places.)
It's not too late, change your habits now, Mother Earth will thank us.
