Hi, my name is Cutey the Container and I am going to tell you how I got to the Pacific Rubbish Vortex because I want you help me get the message that all the people will start recycling not dumping trash on the ground.
I was sitting in the factory getting made with all the other containers but this was the problem, I was the last one in the row and and all the ones at the end always don’t get made properly because often there is not enough to be made so they get chucked away.
It was my turn to be made and lucky there was enough plastic to make me. That does not happen very often so I was very lucky to survive it. Back to the story, so I was sitting there waiting for something to be put into me then all of a sudden something picked me up and put me on this bigger table and then poured some watery stuff into me and it smelt like something rotten but I wasn’t sure. Something big a hairy put a hat or something like that onto my head and then the rotten stuff was stuck inside me. That is how my life began.
I woke up the next day and I was in a in a big dark room when I was sitting there wondering where I was when the whole room started moving. I thought to myself, hang on a minute if I am in a room moving, well is that what the hairy beasts talking about putting us into this dark room with no lights. I think they called it the... I don’t know what they said but I think we should call it the container moving mobile. All of a sudden the place that I was in stopped. BANG!!! I could see light again, it was like a miracle had just appeared. I” could not believe my eyes! “Wow” Outside is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The next thing I know I was getting lifted up and put into a little mini car. I had no idea where I was and to me that was a scary thing. The cart started moving and then I got lifted up onto a shelf. Then the hairy beasts left me on this shelf and with all these other people around me with all my friends in the mini car. I felt pretty confused then all the people went away. I just sat there waiting and waiting until...
The next day there was way more people when all of a sudden another person picked me up and put me in there mini car and then drove away. That was a very sad part of my life because I really didn’t want to leave my friends but I decided that maybe where I was going was a better place than where I am at the moment. I went past this big scanner and then into a bag. The bag had a sign on it saying New World. Then I saw light again but this time I was at a house that I had never seen before, Then I got put into a house then into a pantry. It was dim and dark in there but the good thing about it was that I got to see all my friends again.
That was the day that I got eaten by another hairy beast. Now I was all alone with no rotten, slimy stuff inside me, in a way that felt kinda good in a way. I got thrown in the trash with some of my old friends of mine. It was great catching up with my old friends and I really wish I could stay with them but unfortunately I couldn’t because... “ AHHH” All of a sudden a big people mover picked up the trash and put it into a big truck filled with other rubbish then the big truck tipped us out into a big hole called a landfill. The landfill stunk of rubbish and oil or gases. I hated that smell because it reminded me of when I was getting made because I don’t like being reminded of that because it always made me cry. “Boo Hoo Hoo” I cried. It was one of the most saddest moment in my life because I miss all my friends. I don’t know where all of them went but I really want to catch up with them one day soon. SMASH!!! We all got piled on by some others of my friends. Day by day, month by month, every day more and more rubbish got dumped into the landfill then all of a sudden a huge gaze of wind, like a bowl of soup being stirred with a spoon, picked us all up and swooped us out to the ocean. While we were out in the ocean, we floated away over to the middle of the ocean where we found The Great Pacific Garbage Vortex. The Great Pacific Garbage Vortex is a huge pile of rubbish and plastic in the middle of the ocean and it is twice the size of Texas.
