Our Earth Day - Little Things Make a Difference
We think about the earth every day around here! Sharing it's wonder and beauty is what we are all about. I recently went to Santa Barbara's Natural History Museum and saw a little acrylic box with jellyfish swimming around. On closer inspection I realized it was a display showing how plastic shopping bags look in the ocean. I was truly shocked at how bad of a problem this is for our sea life and for us.
Did You Know?
- Each year plastic kills more than a million sea birds and 100,000 mammals and sea turtles who mistake it for food, such as jellyfish.
- 52% of sea turtles and 60% of sea birds have ingested some form of plastic.
- Plastic toxins end up in fish, which end up on our plates, which end up inside our bodies.
