Did you know, that some conservationists estimate that at least ONE MILLION animals die in the United States annually from plastic related issues? Just let that number sink in – ONE MILLION animals die because of plastic. While, apparently the fish that are killed in the wild each year is a lot higher. Let’s take it a step further and say, that around 500 billion plastic bags go into circulation each year. Sit there and consider that for a moment! I mean, it literally just breaks my heart.
It is raining in Williamsburg today, not a very pleasant day to be outside, so I took Miles Storm to the Brooklyn Childrens Museum at 145 Brooklyn Avenue in Crown Heights. If it was a nice day I could in theory walk, it is only 4 miles away, but either way you have to walk through a dodgy part of town, near Bed-Stuy, and that is not such a good idea.
