What Happens To The Plastic You Throw Away Video

There is no away, everything goes somewhere. Just because you say, just throw it away, what really happens to the plastic you throw away? I just came across this TEDEd Video that features a great animation on what happens to the plastic you throw away. There is a full plastic lesson from TEDEd here. This is a great supplement to Plastic Ahoy! Investigating the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an award winning book about the journey of three scientists to the North Pacific Gyre. We also have a free Plastic Ahoy Teacher Guide to accompany Plastic Ahoy! Investigating the Great Pacific Garbage Patch book. I would like to encourage everyone to rethink their relationship with plastic and refuse single use. We all need to #bethevoice for the ocean and all her inhabitants. There is no away...everything goes somewhere. Even though recycling is a great choice, refusing single use plastic is even a better one! I encourage you to stop using single use plastic.
