It seems that this year the fashion of choice for hay bales is white plastic. These plastic-clad bales now litter the countryside. The other day when I noticed this field, it struck me how much the distant white bales looked like tombstones in a manicured cemetery.
While I realize this new method of baling hay probably protects the hay better through rain and winter, I find it sad and defeating. What will happen to all these thousands and thousands of miles of white sheets of plastic, when the hay bales are unwrapped in six months? The earth really doesn’t need more plastic to clog up dumpsites and poison animals as it breaks down.
While a lot of little people do try to do what they can to not damage the earth further, it seems that industry goes out of its way to create new things to destroy it.
