Microplastics: a nowadays word? Yes, and I feel so sorry and desolated. We need to do something to try to fix this.
Microplastics invade our seas and rivers of plastic microparticles that human being uses uncontrollably.
We throw these particles out of the stack and at the toilets, and at the end, they finish and are deposited at our rivers and seas, invading beautiful beaches and oceans, or creating plàstic based island in the middle of nowhere. Marine animals confuse them with food, and what they do not eat, destroys the corals and floats in a row, hurting all that is found.
For 2050, there will be more plastics on our seas than fishes!
We have to do something! It is known that governments have the strength and tools, but citizens and consumers have to put our batteries on. We must avoid buying food such as fruits and vegetables wrapped in plastic, carry our own clothed bags always to make sure not ask for plàstic bags at the stores.
We must not use ears sticks, we should avoid the balloons that end up in the air and then to the sea, where they are eaten by marine animals and can strangle them. No chewing gums and puppies to drink. We must say NOT to use plates and glasses of plàstic. It’s our mission to teach our children and whoever to organizw green parties.
Let’s say no to creams and cleaners that contain microparticles, silicones and oils: we need to read the tags a bit more.
Use cotton towels, organic cotton or hemp fiber.
Let’s say No to plastic spoons, try to use your own coffee or teacup and reuse the glass containers to store food instead of plastic caps.
Swimmers have a lot to say and much more to do! We should commit, make difussion and help to cleanse our seas, rivers and lakes. We must organize and mobilize ourselves so that everyone can become aware that we are loading our planet, that we can not leave our children and grandchildren a sea, lake or river where to bathe or swim. Everything we are enjoying is ending
Our planet is filled with plastic and it is getting emptied of marine animals. The beaches will not be that beautiful and idyllic in a near future. They will be full of plastic, cans and rubbish.
We should be aware that what fishes are eating is coming to our tables and meals. Our lives are gradually becoming more synthetic.
But not all are bad news, we are still in time, talk about this problem at home, at work, at school, wherever you go. Talk and share this problema to your close shops and businesses so that they could empathize and little by little start not using so much plàstic.
We should start our own revolution and get to governments and ask them to help us!
Let’s put a stopper on everyone!!!
