A serious matter

 The gold of the twenty-first century is the water.
The water conservation is a serious matter.
There's an interesting video about it.

"Species Encounter: Dive In!, 
an interactive installation is an allegory 
for the plastic we consume ending up 
invading the seas and oceans,
 being absorbed and eaten by many different 
marine species and threatening them.
 In the installation, the animals shapes 
of fish (like lanternfish and opah),
 sea turtles (like leatherback sea turtle and hawksbill turtle) 
and marine mammals (like harbor seals, sperm whales and dolphins), 
are made of recyclable cardboard. 
The center of each shape is filled 
with recycled plastic packaging...."

"...When you look at the ocean from the beach 
it mostly looks stunningly beautiful.
Yes. But billions of pounds of plastic 

can be found in the oceans around the globe.

Plastic pollution has become a growing plague,

 clogging our waterways, and damaging marine ecosystems.
 44 percent of all seabird species, 22 percent of cetaceans,
 all sea turtle species and a growing list of fish species 
have been documented with plastic in or around their bodies.
 Most of what we eat, drink, or use in any way 
comes packaged in petroleum plastic
 - a material designed to last forever, 
yet used for products that we then throw away.
Seeking out alternatives to the plastic items

 that we rely on is an absolute necessity."

It would be fantastic
 reduce the use of plastic.
Every   drop   is important
and many drops make an ocean.

More about it.
