Help Protect Our Earth

 

Each year we are drinking 30 billion throw-away bottles of water worldwide.  That is 2.7 MILLION TONS of plastic!  If you put the bottles end to end, they would go around the world more than 150 times, and that is every single year. 

Even with all of the recycling programs, so many of these bottles are still being thrown away, leading to a huge plastics pollution problem. Bottles burried in landfill can take up to 1000 years to biodegrade and millions of tons of plastics are making their way into our oceans.  It is calculated that there is currently 3 million tons of plastic waste floating in our oceans!   View "The Costs of Bottled Water" file http://www.ecotanka.com/media/water-disaster.pps

This is such a sad problem. Please take a moment to view the following photographs and to watch the You-Tube article.  Please do your part to help keep our world green, healthy, clean and beautiful for your children and their generations to come.
