My point was made, this is something I just thought about and it's true no matter how miniscule the pollution might be. And yes I know many other things are far worse but can we not poop all over every idea on this forum?

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY!

This is true. Bottled water and discarded bottles are a far bigger problem than you would imagine. In fact, tons of discarded bottles that are meant to be recycled, are actually shipped off to third world countries and piled up in mountains of plastic. Same with 'recycled' electronic equipment, recycling takes time and effort, so many advanced countries simply ship their waste overseas to let then deal with the pollution and hazards.

We should poop over ideas. Natural fertilizer.

We all have to do our part to counteract the damage we're doing!

I never thought about it until now but we all like a nicely beaten disc and this comes with a virtually unseen pollution.

I detest littering and it never crossed my mind that pieces of our discs are out there on our favorite courses just sitting for all eternity. I wish there was something we could do about this and as many disc golfers are Earth-friendly I think we all can agree. We don't intend to pollute with our disc shavings but it happens, regardless. It would be nice if discs were somehow Green, but I have no idea how that would work.

So anyway, I just wanted to bring this problem to attention. During my last round there was trash everywhere on my favorite course, literally within 50 feet of a trash can in most cases. I absolutely cannot stand litter and now I have to disc knowing that little pieces of my discs are going to be stuck in nature forever

Weigh your disc new, and then after it is beat in. You would be surprised how little difference there is. The nicks "rearrange" the plastic rather than tearing it off. More plastic would be lost to the disc sliding on concret or asphalt.
