Photo Friday: Recycled Material

November 18, 2016

Litter is a problem we’ve had to deal with for a very long time.  The government has passed laws imposing heavy fines, and established a time, like Earth day, to help solve this problem.  While these measures have helped to reduce the problem, it still continues.

We already know the down side to this litter problem, but is there an up side?  Nature has made use of our waste material.  The oceans are littered with ships, and other wreckage,  of which the oceans are making use.  Today’s picture is another way nature has taken our litter, and turned it into something it can use.  This bird nest has turned what looks like a plastic bag into a liner to help strengthen the nest.
