Healthy waterfowl are tasty waterfowl!
Plastic wads move downstream with wind and rain where they become a common component of the plastic pollution in our oceans. From there, it’s not long before they start to photodegrade and become food for marine life, working their way up the food chain and possibly into that next duck you bring home for dinner. Don’t take my word for it, see this Voice of America article for plenty of information to get you thinking.
REDUCE YOUR USE
Switch to shotshells with biodegradable wads and you won’t have to spend any time wondering whether any part of your plastic wads have found their way into one of your birds.
- Polywad’s GreenLite Shotshells use paper cups instead of plastic to create a biodegradable wad. This review in the Daily Miner from Kingman, Arizona has more specific information about how GreenLite shells perform.
Do yourself and the birds a favor – No one wants a serving of plastic with their hard-won meal.
