Lush Recycling bottle tops for seabirds



Lush is asking people to donate bottle tops at their shops, and they will recycle them. They are trying to raise awareness of threat to marine animals posed by the waste which ends up in oceans, and because seabirds are attracted by the bottle tops and eat them, they end up blocking their stomachs and killing them.
Other animals which the seabirds (fish etc) eat will also be attracted by the bottle tops and eat them, and because the bottle tops don't break down, the seabirds cannot fully digest the prey animal, so they will be consuming prey which has also eaten bottle tops.
Once we begin to recycle bottle tops, less will get thrown away and end up in the seas and oceans.
