Trash! Glorious Trash!

Wasn't that an Oscar the Grouch song?
Thought I'd share... My buddy Steve Brimm gave me the heads up on Ira Glass' interview with sailor and researcher Captain Charles Moore. Captain Moore's website is fantastic
They offer resources and information, as well as handouts for teachers to print out about plastics. Thought I share some depressing photos from their research of dead albatross whose guts were full of plastic non-biodegradable trash.

Awareness- that's one thing all of us can do raise awareness. Then you can make small change. Just pay attention to how much plastic you use and how you dispose of it. Then start using less!

On a more positive note, a couple of great uplifting quotes:
"Always use the word impossible with the greatest caution" -Werner Von Braun
"The peope who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them" -George Bernard Shaw
