This is the sad truth 😕

@espannabis

Las botellas y bolsas hechas con la planta de cannabis tardan en desintegrarse de 3 a 6 meses y se desintegran de manera completa, cosas que los plásticos no lo hacen y además esta planta tarda muy poco en crecer, además esta planta puede llegar a limpiar el CO2 de la átomosfera.Asique antes de juzgar previamente a esta planta hay que informarse de sus beneficios porque está planta puede llegar a cambiar el mundo. Será esta una solución para la contaminación, la contaminación de los plasticos y la solución para no ver imágenes tan trágicas como estas?

Jajajaja el monito ❤️

@livinginemerald

Great idea and beautiful photo

@chiragsharma.in

Every monkey is curious about everything, and they know that this plastic bottle has some water once, he is looking for a water so don’t worry about it he will not eat it. Beautiful shot anyway

@mjrphotog

Then stop purchasing water sold in plastic bottles.

@ktb283

These monkeys stole my water bottle viciously when I went to Vietnam! And they would steal things out of recycling bins and trash cans. I do agree we have a plastic problem; I’m just saying these little monsters could have stolen it from tourists

@gdziesakasperki

Sad and beautiful at the same time!!!
