What you're seeing is the equivalent, in branded plastic detritus, of the shells of half a dozen Maryland blue crabs which would take 45 minutes and hundreds of hammer strokes to eat. Yet I devoured the paltry volume of food (when compared to the ample volume of petroleum-based packaging) that produced an equal amount of rubbish in a little less than two minutes.
Served in its own shrink-wrapped paper box, this 'all natural, all high-energy, all delicious' ode to superfluous packaging contains:
- Bumblebee® SensationsTM Lemon & Pepper Seasoned Tuna Medley
- Late JulyTM Organic Crackers
- Wild GardenTM Hummus
- Stacy's® Multigrain Baked Pita Chips
- Fino Selections Gouda cheese slice
- Newman's Own® organic California raisins
- 'Moist' Toilette
Now, even as we speak, in the wind-whipped vastness of the Pacific Ocean churns the Great Pacific Trash Vortex. It feeds on our plastics and adds to it bulk like a black hole. By credible scientific estimates it is twice as wide as Texas and indestructible since plastics can persist forever at the molecular level.
