Plastic can be recycled not life...

Plastic can be recycled not life...

Small details MAKE the difference.
* * *
You know when you buy packs of bottles
they often come with these "plastic collars" since quite a while
and i saw once, years ago, a bird caught with this thing
around its body...

Since that day,
I said to myself i would make sure
i would never become a contributor to this crime to nature.

Even if i send my plastic to be recycled
I always "cut" the little circles or any other trap* in a way
that can represent less danger to any animal.
I am not sure where the truck for recycling
goes, is it always recycled or just spread
in an open dumping field...sometimes?

To me, this is a "primary" gesture to cut
those plastic rings.
Every little gesture counts
do not understimate your own contribution...

(weekly informal challenge: Primary)
(*for the picture...the "cutting" was not completely done with ;)
I found this "today" on the net:
Une image vaut milles mots...
Please -- stop polluting the world (air-water-ground)
We have the ability to "create" this - we have the ability to PREVENT and AVOID this...
M. Stephen Harper! Jean Charest! Vous avez du chemin à votre plan nord M. Charest est "stupide", surtout dans sa forme actuelle. Une farce et vous nous forcez à en être le dindon.

I have done the same for years now as I saw something on TV that showed the dangers of these in the land fill.
Wonderful photo and important message.

you are right Claudia, the bell birds in Australia like to pick the blue rings of a plastic milk bottle and then sufficated themselves with it. A great reminder to remove the blue ring of the bottle
Ad your composition is of course magnifigue!
