Did you know?

We all know that a plastic bottle or an empty soda can are bad for the environment and throwing it out on the street is not a good idea. But how about something natural like the remains of an apple, a banana skin or some orange peel?

Is it OK to throw it out into nature?

NO! Although the remains of the apple will be gone in about 2 weeks, it attracts birds. If you throw out these remains while waiting at the traffic light, the birds will not be aware of the danger and just focus on the delicacy of the apple.

And the orange and banana will take a period of 1 – 3 years to dacay!! Another example: cigarettes – 2 years before nature has absorbed them. Chewing gun – 25 years!! And that soda can?? 50 years….

Please, dispose of garbage the proper way,

Yvonne
