Humans have deposited over five trillion pieces of plastic in the oceans.  This plastic hysteria has created havoc among the oceans creatures.

They are a huge source of ocean pollution.

Cotton swabs are not supposed to be used to clean our ears.

Give up cotton swabs for your health and marine life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plastic pollution

Plastic in the oceans

The plastic debris in our oceans is becoming over whelming.  In remote parts of the world on tropical atolls we see waves of plastic washed up on shore.  Where did it all come from?

It is from all of the drinking straws, cotton swabs and plastic bottles discarded.

As human beings we need to change the way we live and how we dispose of our waste.

Eventually it all ends up in our oceans!

Give up cotton swabs for your health and marine life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bad for our ears

Cotton swabs are bad for our ears

It is better to leave the ear wax in your ears than to use a cotton swab to clean it out.  Usually we wind up pushing the ear wax deeper into our ears.

Cotton swabs are bad to use on your ears and are menacing ocean life.  Emergency rooms across the country are plagued with reports of adults and children complaining of ear injuries.

Give up cotton swabs for your health and marine life.

 

 

 

 

Oceans polluted with plastic

Plastic ocean pollution

Our ears have wax for a reason, it repels insects, dirt, dust and other foreign extremities.

Our ear wax prevents these contaminants from entering our bodies.

Using cotton swabs can be addictive.  Our ears tend to itch since we use cotton swabs to massage them.

This perpetuates a cycle of “itch scratch cycle”.  The more we use them the more our ears itch, and the more your ears itch the more we use them.

Give up cotton swabs for your health and marine life.
