GINTA – Of sharks and jars and the stories that lie in between



WHAT DO SHARKS and glass jars have in common? If you’re ready to answer ‘Umm, nothing’ I will ask you to indulge me the next few paragraphs to show you the connection.

gintahed-nkWhen my youngest was four, we watched a documentary called ‘Sharkwater,’ which ended up being a game changer. He has always had a love for marine life, sharks in particular. Perhaps living on the coast and spending many long hours on beaches had something to do with it. We have since amassed a large collection of shark literature.

The documentary ‘Sharkwater’ pushed it farther.

    We’ve been recycling our milk jugs as one example of soft plastic, and glass bottles/jars for years, I thought most people were doing that already.

  2. Dear Ms. Ginta:
    Next time (and the time after…at infinitum) you get to party with the pretentious and hypocritical crowd of wannabe socialist (including the ones in council and their supporters) you could perhaps try to boldly and unapologetically bring up the “sharks, the glass and the upgraded recycling deal” because…well…it is all tied together.

  3. We recycled glass milk bottles when I was a child and the milkman replaced them with fresh milk with cream on top. And later pop and beer bottles were reused also. What happened?
