Our Plastic Habit Is so Bad a Man Found a Fish Trapped in an Embedded Powerade Wrapper
October 31, 2017
In Alberta, Canada, a man recently made a discovery that shows just how directly our plastic waste affects wildlife. While fishing in the Saskatchewan River, Adam Turnbull came across a fish like no other he had ever seen – one that had grown with a plastic ring now embedded into its body. The piece of plastic turned out to be a Powerade wrapper. The sad series of images that Turnbull posted on Facebook is another reminder that our plastic waste never just “goes away.”
Turnbull started his post with a simple call: “Pickupyourgarbage.”
“This is a Powerade wrapper which takes up no room in your pocket until you get to a garbage can,” he wrote.
Turnbull told UNILAD that, when he first saw the fish, he thought that it had been attacked and wounded by another fish. When he picked it out of the water, however, he noticed the wrapper – then grabbed a pair of scissors and carefully removed it.
In just a few days, his post has been shared more than 12,000 times.
Some cats as young as four months old are purchase from suppliers and cut up and tortured in lengthy procedures that go on for hours, this horrific dead-end research has going on for more than thirty years, consuming 7.95 million taxpayer dollars and has not resulted in any treatment for vision disorders.
