About 3 years ago, soon after my first daughter was born, as I started to learn about the negative health consequences of plastic, I started minimizing the use of plastic water bottles, plastic food containers, and plastic wrap — anything that “touched” our food and drinks. It has taken me longer, however, to care about minimizing the use of other plastic things, such as plastic bags. It wasn’t until after learning about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the largest garbage dump in the world, that I wholeheartedly wanted to minimize the use of this non-biodegradable material.

Did you know that there is 3.5 million tons of trash in the Pacific Ocean, and that 90% of it is estimated to be plastic?

Located in the Pacific Ocean, between California and Japan, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is estimated by some to be approximately twice the size of Texas; is 90 feet deep at some points; and contains 3.5 million tons of trash, of which 90% is estimated to be of plastic. Check out this video: Oprah Reports on The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Since becoming a mother, I have become increasingly sensitive to the environment and all parent-child relationships, including those among animal- and sea- life! The images below have had a lasting impact on my buying and recycling behavior.
