I try not to get political or preachy anymore. I am trying to live my life by Cap’n Fatty’s philosophy to leave that stuff to the dirt dwellers. However, when I saw this video it so totally disgusted me that I had to share it. My wife shared this with me and it had both of us in tears.
For awhile I was doing really good at my environmentalism; concentrating on the reduce, reuse sides of the triangle. We typically have two full bins of recylcing to one bag for the landfill every other week. Admittedly, that has fallen off a bit in my push to make the liveaboard dream a reality. A lot of the material from my purge events could have been recycled rather than trashed. I felt this stuff would be back to the forefront once I got through this stage. The reality is that I never should have let it out of sight. I wish these reminders were not so sad and destructive to the environment.
