Pictures: A year's worth of plastic waste.

Here are the pictures of all the waste plastic I accumulated over the last year.

First I needed to unpack my collection...


Aerial view of one year's worth of plastic waste (446 pieces)!


All the the hard molded plastic waste...most pieces don't have numbered recycle symbols.


Long thin bags I don't remember what they were from, but there sure are a bunch of them.


Milk caps, shrink wrap seals and cheese related plastic. A very colorful array of plastic.


The largest single piece of plastic in my collection-plastic wrap my new mattress came in.


One of the smallest pieces of plastic in my collection-clothing tag thingy.


Okay, that's it. Now everything back in the big plastic tupperware container where my plastic waste is most at home.

Wow, so much plastic, ah! I can't even imagine how many water bottles people go through everyday. You should check out ONE Water..it's packaged in great eco-friendly packaging and it tastes amazing. Here's where I found out about it-

There is too much of plastic in packaging which should be avoided...why don't the big brands shift to eco friendly materials?
