Just a lil more inspiration for the book. Plastic in Paradise – Paradise indeed… If you’re a piece of plastic garbage 😫
Let’s think twice about the plastic-packaging, plastic bags, and “disposable” water bottles, toothbrushes, razors and get creative with environmentally friendly alternatives (glass, metal, wood, cardboard+paper)!
Mari kita berpikir baik2 tentang kamasan plastik, kantong plastik, “sekali pakai” botol air, sikat gigi, pisau cukur, lain2 yg dibuat oleh plastik, dan mendapatkan kreatif dengan alternatif yang ramah lingkungan!
Plastik tidak menurutkan, plastik tetap selamanya – mari kita memilih alternatif kertas, karton, kapas, atau kaca! Tolong buang sampah khusus di tempat sampah!
This past Thursday I finished the Ocean Warriors – Plastic in Paradise kid’s book illustrations (read more about it here and here!)
I was inspired and motivated (and convicted by all the trash in my own house!) to visit the beach down the road from our house and do a lil clean up myself.
Which piece of trash trumped all the others? “Disposable” water bottles, and single-use plastic drinking cups. How ironic – the very convenient items that help us to stay hydrated are choking our biggest water[life] source.
Spoons, cups, clothes, shoes, straws, lighters, bottles, cans, more shoes.
Even in Western countries, I hear friends saying, “I’m glad it’s not that bad here.” But is it really any better? The average American produces 4.3lb of trash a day, 1600lb a year!
138 million tons of trash going into a landfills each year. That’s ridiculous. With an estimated 100 million tons of plastic debris floating around the oceans. Our planet is going to suffocate.
The Creator says to be kind to your animals and love your neighbour as yourself. Plastic isn’t kind or loving to ANYONE, not even yourself.
