In essence, this is a good pic. But it unfortunately tries to rely on ridiculous exaggeration, rather than the simple truth. Why bother, when the message and the effects of this stuff is the same?
For instance, glass bottles DO break down in about 1 million years. However, the glass is going to be reduced to sand-fine particles in only a few thousand years, becoming no more unusual or problematic than natural sand. this does NOT negate the problem of glass litter in the here and now. but when it is exaggerated like this, the message loses its validity.
Using “forever” completely invalidates the message, and opens it to ridicule. Cigarette butts and filters break down in about 1 to 5 years.
Plastic bottles break down in about 450 years.
Six-pack rings break down within 90 DAYS, sometimes less than 30, and are manufactured to photo-degrade in this manner.
Again, this does NOT INVALIDATE THE PROBLEM IN THE HERE AND NOW.
But when you grossly exaggerate the issue, you’re going to lose credibility. And when that happens, you’re not going to make a lick of difference.
