It appears to be a controversial sculpture made entirely of trash to represent the plastic infecting and killing our oceans. Satori Cmaylo and your source is? Menda Lechiara If people didn’t litter we wouldn’t have this problem. Tanya Nichole Wtf Jose This Is Sad But as U Can See Its Made Put Of The Party Papers And A Blue Painted Button For The Eyes Angie Cottrell I think that this is a very sad and unfortunate thing . The Savage Wolf Just wow Dawn James That’s sad they do need to clean the ocean and not throw plastic in the water mammals and animals lives are important to just as human lives Kayla M Martinez Don’t be lazy and take milla second of your time to keep it as clean as everyone can . Christopher Anderson We also don’t have to throw out every plastic bag we get, you can reuse a plastic bag for carrying stuff in it many, many times. Sheila Really interesting article. Generic This is sad and all but are we just not going to talk about how many FUCKING ads there are? Also, screw you and your slideshow format, I hate it and you just want to make more money. Crystal Keith That’s really sad!! People get a grip.Quit littering. Jesus Aleman Aguirre Had to read this for RacingRivals Gems lol Basic THATS ridiculous can’t imagine to its like swim in the filthy water and then they’re slowing dying Joshua That’s heartbreaking and crazy how the whale had so much plastic inside of him Kk Yeah Dustin Robbins Very sad, you would think he just ate them because they looked different. Not cool, I never litter. My console is my mobile garbage can. Be wise ya’ll, respect our planet. Eva this is terrible 🙁 Booboo That is terrible L Ryuzaki Yea Shadow Duncan It’s crazy how people will read this and think “That’s so sad” and “That’s terrible” but then up throwing something small like a candy wrapper out of the window without thinking twice while going down the road because of a habit. People say we need to change but then wait on someone else to make the first move. If we all wait for someone else to change the world, we’ll never get anything done and the world will get even more polluted than it is now. Pick up your trash even if it don’t belong to you. We’ll never be able to make a difference if only a few people pick up one or two pieces of garbage. We all need to work together. Kwistine You’re right Conrad Majszak If we see garbage along side the road we dont typically pick it up. Its gross and we dont know where it’s been. But imagine if everyone would make a goal of picking up 5 just 5 pieces of garbage a day and throw it in the trash. Over 300 million people in USA do the math. But we see these as holes who will just throw garbage out of there car. I will scream at people who do that. I figure if you embarrass them they won’t do it again. So there we go. See people tossing garbage out of there car make it a very loud point to let everyone know there disgusting pigs it will hopefully make them think again before doing that. Then we all pick up 5 or more pieces of trash a day well were on the way to helping. Let’s do something to make america first in that we can be proud of instead of best weapons to kill people or the last country the company Johnson and Johnson the people who make baby soap or shampoo. They put formaldehyde in there products. It causes cancer and all kinds of life destroying crap. For innocent babysitters. They held off taking it out of there product so they can keep making hundreds of millions. This world has some serious problems if they will go to that level to make money. Anyway sorry about the long message. Larry May Your response is what is needed but unfortunately these days screaming at someone driving down the road or anywhere else could end up with you being shot by some deranged Pycho. Some freeways you take your life in your own hands just by accidentally going to slow or for just driving under a bridge at the wrong time. I would rather take down a liscence plate than risk getting killed over a piece of gum wrapper and isn’t that a sad state our country has turned into. Nancy Tolin There is nothing to be sorry about. Norma Vélez I agree with you. I’m working with you. Wendy Absolutely! I do just that! ..it doesn’t matter where I am, if I see trash (it is just ugly) I start picking it up. I don’t know who put it there or however the wind/storm blew it there, if I don’t like it I’m in a country that allows me the freedom to pick it up. Everyone is also capable of doing this same thing. The colorful plastics laying all over look junky and make a beautiful scenery into something so ugly you’d turn your head away. My husband & I often have disagreements on this exact issue…for ex. I have just filled a trash bag with junk I’ve cleaned that belongs to someone else, yet on the way home HE THROWS A STYROFOAM CUP OUT THE WINDOW! Talk about disrespectful! Not only to me but everybody’s kids, even yours, all generations behind us. These kids nowadays too busy playing digital brain rot 2 notice anything. We have to b examples to lead them on the right path. Don’t make it a chore cleaning earth, make it a positive memory and it will last. Plz help me y’all Keisha Wilson Very interesting story James Bogu The poor thing… Shjvrr Cool Juan victor Very good material is ver y important know about this problem Amaya Wow…We should really think before any action this is sad and maybe we need to get out of this bad habit of throwing garbage around.

Satori Cmaylo i will only use pet bags which can be recycled otherwise i will take my own heavy bag to grocery stores from now on Kayz Me too Ashton Salkeld Just sad Sarah ella Wow.. We are failing our jobs that God gave us. Melissa This is so sad. It’s not hard to throw garbage in a garbage can. People can be so careless. Kelli I’m saddened to see that California is the only state in the US that has banned plastic bags. I try and use recyclable every time I visit the grocery store. I think this is a bigger issue that needs more attention msmojo plastic bags are not banned in California. They’ve gotten rid of the thin old fashioned grocery store type bags that they used to give you for free and now if you want a bag you have to pay $0.10 but it’s still a plastic bag, and much thicker than the old ones. I don’t see a huge conscious effort on a majority of Shoppers to bring their own I don’t see a huge conscious effort on a majority of Shoppers to bring their own bags. They just buy new ones every time . I believe the thicker plastic bags are just a way to make more money off of shoppers, but keep in mind they are still plastic and they are more heavy-duty so aren’t they going to take even longer than the typical 10,000 years to decompose? Aren’t we making this problem worse? But hey it’s $0.10 a bag to the store so why not Warmfuzzy I was shocked to see this as well. Anne Lacourse we should look at our planet but the big money man don’t care Kim Mccafferty And I thought all that plastic has been being recycled! Which company lied, got paid, and then dumped? Maurice I think it’s a shame but at the same time it’s human nature to destroy the lesser species sad but True! Clay Cammack Poor journalism. You’re using a picture that is not a sperm whale as your main picture. It’s a false picture that can lead people to believe the article is false. For those who don’t know, sperm whales are toothed whales not baleen whales. L Poor whale rip Angie Lancaster That’s a wonderful story and I’m glad countries are doing something about it. Now if only the U.S. would. Maybe we could get together and make plastic anything recyclables for money,people would do it and not trash our lands and rivers or oceans. Please help us to do what’s right and smart. Jay Garrett Wow Lola Parton This is disgusting and disheartening! Why is trash being thrown into the ocean to begin with?

Cfvvv Egg CTGolfer What a shame Ashton Sullivan Wow. Plastic crap in the ocean is REALLY starting to make every animal in the ocean and almost EVERYWHERE die. Ed [email protected] Hakuna Matata Blame humans ok. But from what I remember the government pushed plastics as a better thing. Buy water in plastic bottles it is easy to recycle yada yada yada.

That being said… has anyone noticed that this is not a sperm whale? It has baleen, such as in a blue whale. It’s a poor betrayal but gets the point across. Bin Go Sad! We just need to keep working on responsibility, of ourselves & our kids! It’ll never change if we all don’t work together!! Melody Sanderson I think that man needs to clean up the mess it has made of the seas,land and the air. We were given a beautiful planet and progress or technology have ruined this world with garbage.

Art project Stephen Wright I hope to hell I get my fucking gold this motherfucker promised me Andrea This is heartbreaking Pat Larimore The only words for this: sad and pathetic. Jan Smith I’ve been reading that plastic straws are no longer being offered in restaurants in California as a wildlife protection measure. Each step humans take in the direction can’t come soon enough. We have been using plastic grocery bags as we reuse them to bag our garbage. I’m not sure what to use for garbage if not plastic. Judith Wash I think that’s just horrific. People are so self serving. Ryan Gates Pretty lousy how far we’ve declined environmentally. I expect this unfortunately to get much worse before it improves. Let’s hope we can wake up before it is far too late. Bo Foster Very sad Rj Good read Stacy Ross Very sad Barb A.

Helen As caretakers of this world for future generations, we really need to learn to do a better job. Debbie Godlien So sad Debi Bourgeois This makes me totally ashamed of the human race. Will we ever change? If we don’t, I feel the Earth will somehow treat us as an infection and terminate us all. Basically that’s what we have become, an infection, it’s really sad. Debbi B We are a DISGUSTING species…We destroy everything we touch…We even litter in space! Jon Paper or plastic?… JoAnn Ward I think the whole world needs to do its part in the clean up and prevention of waste in the water systems. When I go to a beach, looking for sea glass, I try to remove dangerous items from the beach so they won’t float out in the water again. Valerie Morton It is awful that man is killing the animals & earth so when the earth can no longer take it and gives in dies what happens then? Are we not killing ourselves?

Latu H Fakaosi Sad. Plastic should be banned world wide Lacey Lamb McCarty Would love to see more regulations to help prevent this Jay The first photo of the whale is not even real.

Our planet is in jeopardy. Lise Corbett This so sad …. people just don’t think of the consequences when they do something. Tiphany Irene Vargas Amador The main cause is from the people throwing their plastic wastes into the city water in whatever country it said. I am sure that the U.S. has a small impact but nothing like the under developed countries. Patricia Mckinnon Horrible Cindy Yes Rashenda Aziz I m here to collect dia John Hall One person spoke of the plastic bags costing us a dime and are thicker which they are that is why I get them for my garage sale and to reuse at whatever markets i shop at.

Ausha James Not just plastic bags, it’s garbage in general. We as Humans have to stop polluting our beautiful waters and harming Mother Earth.

Tonnya Etheredge Dumas We need to be more self conscious of how we treat the earth. Meeshie Each country needs to be involved in creating a solution to this problem, like fining anyone caught throwing plastic in ocean, lakes, streams etc. Creating a fleet of ships, boats etc. to do the same job garbage men do on land only this will be on water and with the taxes each country collects off of plastic bags, bottles etc. can pay the wages of the people who are cleaning up the mess of plastic that we created. Stephanie Suttmoeller Something needs to be done. Frances Extremely sad ! Anita Barron I think we should take care of this world by cleaning up after ourselves,throw away your garbage it not only affects the animals but it affects us too,the world and the oceans are beautiful let’s keep it that way for our future families and friends, furry,not furry, wings and none we are all responsible so let’s get out there and do something about it so ocean creachers and other animals don’t get hurt or die N Devine It’s wonderful for everyone to want to clean up the oceans, But we must remember how many years it took to destroy & that cleaning it will not just happen over night!!!! It will take a long time and a very long up hill battle to succeed. Tamara Torres-Winkelman This is so sad and appalling! Unfortunately, I can’t say that I am blameless when it comes to recycling as much as I probably could. The story has changed the way that I will recycle and use plastics from now on now.

Ashley Walters All plastic should be banned Vikki Winston Lang Wake up people we are destroying nature… Kari Watts We throw away things we should already have changed so the earth won’t be ruined by our civilization.

Kelsey Storer That whale is fake. It’s literally paper machete. Just Google search Whale Art project Greenpeace. Not even in Spain like the article says…Don’t believe everything you see.

Connie Hardman You have to get people to care about the Earth again give them information about ocean creatures. there used to be an old commercial of an Indian standing by the Riverside with one tear in his eye looking at the pollution going down the river which was once a beautiful and was now getting destroyed. Everyday there are new diseases discovered and it takes a while to find out what caused it. After the sea creatures are destroyed who knows what else will be destroyed maybe us, do we really want to take that chance? Ashley Burton I think we as a whole need to recycle more.

Poor grammar and sentence structure does not enhance the credibility of a “journalist” when discussing a serious situation.

I always bring my own bags when I go grocery shopping. Kri Stine I’m disgusted and overcome with sorrow at the same time. I can only imagine how many preventable deaths have occurred due to our own carelessness/laziness. The majority of the people in this world right now don’t care about anything but themselves. That is going to kill us all… By destroying our only home. Tamara Stevens THis is absolutely appalling. I am ashamed to be part of the human race with actions like this.
