Všude obalové materiály (Packing Materials Everywhere)

A couple of days ago I came home to find a pile of packing foam strewn across one of the small corner fields near the tram stop. It’s all plastic, and consists of tons of very small pieces. The wind had already blown much of it all over the neighborhood, to the point that I was able to find pieces over 5 blocks away. I can’t imagine any of it will find a landfill, but I would be willing to place bets they find a water source.


Two kinds of packing materials were included – regular old foam, and styrofoam bits.


Here you can see the bits having blown down the street.
Piles of packing foam a few blocks away.
Into the sewer system it goes, just waiting for the next heavy rain.


You can see here that it literally got into everything. This is 3 blocks away now.
Oh, and why not throw a dirty needle in for good measure.
