Plastic Population

Plastic population is not just hurting animals it’s hurting humans as well. Plastic is just one of 3 types of major population such as air pollution, water population, and land population making it even harder to live on Earth. The point is we don’t even need all this plastic there are other things that are better and more safer for this planet such as glass, metal straws and more. Have  you ever imagined being a turtle that swallowed a straw or some plastic from a piece of shopping bag it really hurts. According to Australia news there had been estimated that 1,000 turtles have died from eating plastic this is why I am warning us to stop it too much for us and animals in water also on land WE NEED TO STOP! This is making us bad people we have created such a disaster on this earth and I know it’s not so easy, there are 7.594 billion people on earth but maybe there is a solution.

Start from your home, then your neighbor, then you neighborhood and on and on you can get credit from doing this. You could be famous and world changer, or maybe a Nobel prize sounds cool right! I have tried to do this before saving animals from danger on streets and taking them out of strands in the ocean such as plastic. That made me feel good about myself and others. Animals have emotions too. And sadly there are over 1 million animals dying from plastic and 700 marine species dying each day from plastic. And this is bad for humans like us as well. For example a pescatarian a person that doesn’t eat meat from land animals but eats fish. Bummer right? If someone is a pescatarian and throws plastic and other things that don’t live in the ocean then why are you pescatarian? So here are some tips on saving the ocean and stopping plastic pollution. You need to Cook more, Recycle, Make your own shopping bag it will be fun! Now these tips are all called the 6 R’s (“Reduce, Reuse, Refuse, Remove, Rally, Recycle”) from the link https://www.earthday.org/
