National Oceans Month comes to an end

June is National Oceans Month and the month is coming to an end. What have you and I (we, all of us) done this month to make our oceans a better place? What more could we have done and can we still do? Here is a video reminder from the Algalita Marina as to why we should all do something about our plastic consumption to help our oceans.

Take action against toxic plastics

Reducing all plastic just isn't feasible in the world we live in today (as much as I wish it could be). So, as a first step getting rid of toxins like dioxin and phthalates/DEHP in commonly used (medical related) plastics that affect children (and adults) is a big first step-a very necessary important step!

Check out the discussion about this at Health Care Without Harm and take action by supporting the petition.

Pictures: A year's worth of plastic waste.

Here are the pictures of all the waste plastic I accumulated over the last year.

First I needed to unpack my collection...

Aerial view of one year's worth of plastic waste (446 pieces)!

All the the hard molded plastic waste...most pieces don't have numbered recycle symbols.

Long thin bags I don't remember what they were from, but there sure are a bunch of them.

Milk caps, shrink wrap seals and cheese related plastic. A very colorful array of plastic.

The largest single piece of plastic in my collection-plastic wrap my new mattress came in.

One of the smallest pieces of plastic in my collection-clothing tag thingy.

Okay, that's it. Now everything back in the big plastic tupperware container where my plastic waste is most at home.
