Plastic The Curse to Mother Earth. First is a drop of water from early 1900. The first time capsule is Pacific Ocean Water from 1950. 1960 plastics started to become popular. The 2nd time capsule is from the 1970. You can see the change in water quality. The 3rd is From the Great garbage patch off the coast of California. There is a ghost fishing net with a dead turtle. Many contaminated pieces in the water. The last time capsule is the culprit. Man himself. Look into his body cavity and see a plastic perspiration bottle and a pop bottle. Yes plastic has entered our bodies through our seafood. Spineless did nothing. Happy Earth Day. Please share with friends and family.

Yes please comments . I know this is a difficult subject matter that should matter to all of us

Thanks

Ron

This sadly reminds me of a trip we took to Costa Rica about 10 years ago. We stayed in an idyllic setting with steps leading down to the beach. We soon discovered that the beach was covered with medical waste including used syringes. This was not just a disappointment, but a startling realization.

I agree with pottz, very sad but it’s time to do something about it.

These are really cool although sad and a real eye-opener. But I don’t understand how you did them and what the materials are…?

There is a great deal of information coming to the news regarding plastic and what it is doing to Mother Earth . I had not seen this one. Nat Geo has an article in this months issue . It tells of the amount of plastic now in the fish which is part of our food chain

Thanks for the link
