Increasing consciousness about plastic debris

Ok, it’s time to get our Reiki intentions in gear.  Tomorrow, 5/10, let’s send to increasing consciousness around preventing the expansion of even more plastic debris into our oceans.  Manufacturer and their consumers, which are us, are all related to phenomena.  Let’s not leave this legacy.  Send Reiki to increased awareness and mindfulness of your own consumption of plastic products.  Can we imagine another possible non-toxic product that could be produced in it’s place?

Here are the facts:  The quantity of small plastic fragments floating in the north-east Pacific Ocean has increased a hundred fold over the past 40 years.

Scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography documented the big rise when they trawled the waters off California.

This Scripps study follows another report by colleagues at the institution that showed 9% of the fish collected during the same Seaplex voyage had plastic waste in their stomachs.

That investigation, published in Marine Ecology Progress Series, estimated the fish at intermediate ocean depths in the North Pacific Ocean could be ingesting plastic at a rate of roughly 12,000 to 24,000 tonnes per year.
