Today I spoke with my mom about the impact plastic is having on the natural world. She was very willing to listen and understood the impact we as humans are leaving behind and on poor animals on land and water. This is interesting because I’ve never brought up this issue before and it’s not always so obvious when you can’t read or write like my mother. It reminds me again the responsibility and importance of educating those who are unaware of these different issues. I’m proud of my mom.
