Vacation Shots

I've had two friends recently go to Mexico.  In looking through their gorgeous vacation pictures (I'm jealous, by the way), a couple stuck out.  So here you go ... see if you can decide why I chose these ones in particular.

Beautiful shots of the Mexican seashore and river system, no?  Makes me sad.  And it's certainly not restricted to Mexico, although I did note when I was there that their litter problem was significant.  Nonetheless, the plastics problem is everywhere.

Think about it ... next time you buy something in a plastic bottle (and I buy this stuff, too) ... do you really NEED what you're buying?  And if you do, is there a non-plastic alternative that you could use?

None of us needs to be perfect.  We just need to be aware and think about it.  Even one less bottle makes a difference.

  1. That makes me so sad... I wonder if we would think differently about single use plastics if they weren't recyclable? Even though many communities in the world don't have access to recycling.
