|Ban Beach Whistles|
|I was one of 130 volunteers who went to McNabs Island to clean up garbage that had washed on the beach. While it makes sense that we picked up fishing lines, styrofoam floats and the like, I just don't get why women continue to buy and flush plastic tampon applicators. Hello?!! They don't biodegrade ladies! And worse yet, most of those puppies were flushed right on out into the harbour....can you not read the box, don't flush the damned things! |
There are alternatives, if you are too lazy to package and toss an applicator, get the cardboard kind. Or gee, maybe get close and personal with your own anatomy...buy the ones with NO applicator or something reusable like the Diva. Those thousands of little plastic tubes you shove up your twat for 2.3 seconds last forever in the ecosystem. This the kind of footprint you want to leave behind?
