What I think is particularly interesting is the diverse way these three stories are affecting humans. One a corporation actually taking responsibility for its product, one of the key things which needs to happen to make a change. The second an actual inconvenience to every day life caused by trash, I know it is trivial but issues like this spark action, nothing like buggering up a banker’s commute to start a change. Finally the tragedy and the main reason we need to do something about this, a whale full of plastic.

All a couple of days of news, lets keep making a change, as always you can help us out HERE thank you.
