Which is good, because after spending the last four months traveling through India and Southeast Asia, I was beginning to lose faith. (See image on the left of the view from my Ayurvedic Doctor’s beautiful house in an upper-class section of Trivandrum, India.)
In the rural town where I currently reside near Siem Reap, Cambodia, villagers routinely burn plastic. We are planning an awareness campaign which I will cover in a later post.
In more positive news, however:
Bag Monsters have begun parading around Dubai.
San Diego high school student Cobi Emery, along with Surfrider urge people around the globe to Pick Up Three.
Fishing for Litter helps British fishermen save seabirds like the young gannet pictured, that perished after becoming entangled in plastic litter that was woven into it’s nest. (Image courtesy of the RSPB.)
So, while the issue of plastic pollution is far-reaching and seemingly overwhelming, remember that your small effort, in your small part of the world, contributes toward a global consciousness about a world that is safe for everything alive on it.
How can you make a difference? Who is making a difference in your part of the world? Bag It wants to know!
