Plastic Packaging Vs Animals
Plastic is something we live with every day. Unfortunately the animals who share this planet with us have to live with it too.
Many birds and animals eat the plastic thinking it's food, and tiny pieces of plastic can kill by clogging up their internal organs.
Plastic is used as packaging for practically everything we buy. What we really need are more products which use biodegradable plastic that will fall apart in the sun and rain, eventually becoming harmless.
Thankfully there are companies out there like SAWeco Plastics, which sell eco-friendly plastic packaging to manufacturers. All of their packaging is made from recycled plastic. The company is based in Canada and is a distributor for a network of eco-friendly companies which sell everything from recycled/biodegradable plastic stretch film, reusable grocery bags and USA bubble wrap. They even sell biodegradable bags for dog owners, and kitty litter!
So kudos to companies like them who are getting their act together!
