The Plastic Cow

Topics Environment

Synopsis

The Plastic Cow looks at the impact of our almost complete dependence on plastic bags, which we use and discard carelessly every day, often to dispose our garbage and kitchen waste.

Not only are plastic bags a huge environmental threat, they end-up in the stomachs of cows, who, either because they have been discarded because they are not milking at the time or because the dairy owner is unwilling to look after them, have to fend for themselves and forage for food. Cows are like other scavengers, they find in community garbage dumps.

Owing to their complex digestive systems, these bags, which they consume whole for the food they contain, get trapped inside their stomachs forever and, eventually, lead to painful death.
