Combating Plastic in the Ocean

It was a beautiful weekend, so I decided to take my dogs for a nice walk along the intracoastal.  I have always loved the ocean, it is my place to relax and just be in the moment, and it makes me feel connected to everything.  Imagine my sadness when I saw this:

10,000 Plastic Bottles and a Mermaid

Yep, a photographer named Von Wong used 10,000 single use plastic bottles and a mermaid to help bring awareness to the hazards of plastic in our oceans.  When you think that the average American uses 167 single use plastic bottles a year, in only 60 years that person will have used 10,000.

How do you recycle your plastic bags?

We hear it everywhere we turn.  Plastic bags are bad.  In many instances that is the case, but were you aware that it takes less energy to create plastic bags than it does paper bags?  Unlike other plastics, the various types used for plastic bags require specialized collection and processing.  Placing plastic bags in your curbside recycling bin is a no-no.  Yes, we should be using reusable bags, but we all forget from time to time.  Not to worry, most grocery stores actually have bins located outside their stores specifically for plastic grocery bags.
