It's Game Time Kids!

Everyone likes a good game and I haven't done this since the end of June - so let's get going...

What are you looking here?

Still unsure?

Take a closer look...

Figure it out or totally clueless?

You are looking at an artistic depiction of the 2 million plastic bottles used in the U.S. every 5 minutes. 2 million every 5 minutes! That's just crazy ans wasteful.

Think of all the petroleum used to produce the plastic bottles, to transport them, etc. It's sickening.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chris Jordan for shedding light on the huge waste in America (that goes for other countries as well!).

My husband and I no longer drink bottled water or use plastic bags. They're just not necessary. I keep net/canvas bags with me at all times, simply use my handbag, or I carry my purchases with me and just set them in the car. Nothing wrong with water in a glass either? Bottled water is a marketing scheme...pure and simple.

If we happen to use plastic or whatever - we make a point to recycle and/or reuse.

Make as many changes as you can in your life. Share the information with family and friends. Change begets change and that's what it is going to take to make our planet a better place.

Wow. Just wow. Nobody ever thinks about our total vs. individual consumption. Every little bit adds up.

Thank you for sharing and thank you to the artist for such a poignant expose'.
