Eating plastic

 

Eating plastic

I saw a turtle - eating plastic.
It doesn’t make sense.
Eating plastic can make you die.
We don’t want your garbage - in our oceans.
Stop using plastic bottles.
We pollute too much how does it clean up?

The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel?
The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel? (How’s it make you feel?)

My waste hurts animals.
Creatures are getting hurt.
The wind blows it in the sea.
It’s all so dirty, so dirty!

The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel?
The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel? (How does it make you feel?)

 

Let’s not litter any more on this Earth.
Your future will be dirty if you don’t clean up.
If we want to survive, we’ll have to help each other out.

Wherever garbage goes.
Whoever lives there,
They will be hurt.
So recycle! Clean up your mess!

The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel?
The oceans are full - full of plastic.
How’s it make you feel? (How does it make you feel?)

Ashamed, mortified, disturbed, disgusted.
Don’t pollute, it’s not worth it.

A song written by Grade 3/4 students after reading the story Nokomis Shines and realizing that there is a floating plastic garbage dump in the ocean the size of Quebec. Students made musical instruments using plastic trash.
