The 6th Continent





There is a patch of floating garbage in the North Pacific.

It is twice the size of Texas.

It is so large, it has been dubbed the 6th Continent.

It is not a pretty sight and it is killing the ocean.

One of the major causes is people drinking water from plastic bottles.

In the US alone, 173 589 041 plastic bottles are dumped in the oceans every day.

Yest, you read it right, over 173 million plastic bottles, every day.

Please, stop drinking from disposable plastic bottles and switch to reusable bottles.

It will save you money and give the oceans a chance.

I know some of you will think: We all know this, this is old stuff. Come on man, we're in 2011.


I know, I know.


Yet, everyday, I see decent, educated, wealthy professionals using plastic bottles and I'm wondering at how disconnected from reality they can be.


If you already know how bad drinking water from plastic bottles is, go and tell all your friends. I bet some of them haven't heard the Gospel yet.

I drop a comment whenever I like a post
on a blog or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it is triggered by the fire communicated in the post I browsed.
And after this post "The 6th Continent". I was moved enough to drop a thought :
-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not
mind. Is it simply me or do some of these comments appear as if they are left by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I would like to keep up with anything
new you have to post. Would you make a list every one
of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter
feed?

I do trust all the ideas you've introduced to your post. They're really convincing and
will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for novices.
May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks
for the post.
