Of all the plastic that we do not use, only 9% of it is actually recycled. The rest of it is dumped as waste.

And with increasing urbanisation and lack of availability of sufficient land for dumping waste, even forests have become convenient dumping grounds.

This picture that has been doing the rounds on Twitter, says a lot about what our irresponsible consumption of plastic is subsequently doing to our wildlife.

While the people are enraged by the image, this has become a common sight in forests nowadays.

When will we assume our responsibility towards this planet?
