Lest there be any doubt of the toll that our enormous amount of plastic waste has taken on the planet and its wildlife, this video should put it to rest.

The cobra shown here has swallowed an entire plastic soda bottle — and unable to digest this toxic trash, spits it back up in a disturbing struggle.

A good lesson for all of us to remember: Avoid plastic when you can. And when you can’t, please put it in the recycle bin when you’re done.
