As noted in the Washington Post "A young male sperm whale was found dead off the coast of Spain (with) 64 pounds (29 kilograms) of garbage in its digestive system. The 33-foot whale's carcass surfaced in February near a lighthouse in Cabo de Palos on Spain’s southeastern coast. A necropsy revealed that the animal had trash bags, polypropylene sacks, ropes, net segments and a drum, among other things, in its stomach and intestines. Local authorities said the animal died because of inflammation of the abdominal lining, or peritonitis. The amount of human trash in its system had become so enormous that the whale was unable to expel the garbage from its digestive system."
According to Ecowatch "About 8 million metric tons of plastic enter our oceans each year—a major threat to marine life and marine ecosystems. Last month, the UK government released a startling report warning that plastic pollution in the world's seas is projected to increase three-fold within seven years unless action is taken."
We need to insist that we will not buy products with unnecessary plastic packaging.
