Episode Nine o A Convenient Inconvenience

Saw a documentary last night that inspired this called, Tapped. It talked about how bottled water is convenient, but it causes more problems to our ecosystem than damn near anything else. All the bottles that are not recycled end up in land fills and even more so the oceans. Apparently in every ocean (at the furthest point from the land) there's a toxic plastic soup forming from years of plastic water bottles (made with cancer causing agents and other toxic materials) have been breaking down into little pieces that the fish eat. So, soon, if we continue to do NOTHING, our fish will be toxic before they become extinct and humanity will suffer severely. All for what? Convenience and greed.

You should watch the documentary here: TAPPED

the many things that can lead up until a breaking point... its all like a domino effect.

but one doesn't realize the danger of things until its almost too late.

it's a horrible shame, seriously. and we wonder why little girls are starting puberty at 8 or 9 now. it seems as if we have blinders on when it comes to the long term damage our reckless does to our lives & planet.
