Here's a thought which only occurred to me recently. The cellophane coverings on both my stoma pouches seems to be a danger zone as far as fish and small mammals are concerned. As we pull away the covering from the pouch before putting it on, use some scissors to cut it in half. That way, the circle of plastic is cut in half and will no longer be able to wrap itself around any sea creature or bird and choke it to death. We all try to dispose of our waste products safely, but we don't know where our used pouches/bags end up. It only takes a second to snip the cellophane in half. Please try out this tiny act of kindness and be aware of consequences to our fellow planet dwellers.Please. Best wishes to you all in this time of crisis. Lizz.x
