Decades old plastic yoghurt pot washes up on Tenerife beach

A PLASTIC yoghurt pot from the 1980s has washed up on a Tenerife beach.

Despite being more than 40 years old, the pot is in pretty good nick. The company logo, image and writing on the outside are still clearly visible.

The person who made the discovery published an image of the pot on social media to raise awareness about the importance of recycling to protect the environment.

“Forty years this plastic rubbish going round and round. Everyone can draw their own conclusions”, their post read.
