Volkswagen To Discontinue the Nostalgic Beetle

Published

on

According to Volkswagen, they’re pulling the Beetle from the market come the year 2019. The car originated in Germany, before its popularity spread to the US. After several major branding moves and a reimagined design during the late 90’s, the car became a car favorite in pop culture fashion– mostly for women.

Volkswagen tried to make the car more appealing to men in 2012 and experienced limited success.

With production coming to a halt, Volkswagen will release the final round of special edition Beetles in 2019 known as the Final Edition SE and Final Edition SEL. The last of the Beetles will be available in coupe and convertible styles. Special features will include beige and blue hues, chrome, new wheels, and three-color lighting.

Check out some iconic images of the Beetle throughout its nearly seven decades of history.

Dead Sperm Whale Found Washed Ashore with Pounds of Plastic Inside

Published

on

A dead sperm whale washed up on the shore nearby Kapota Island, in the Wakatobi National Park. It was late Monday when the sea animal was found. What’s shocking was what environmentalists found inside the whale’s stomach.

Inside the deceased whale was up to 13 pounds of toxic waste. There were 4 plastic bottles, 115 plastic cups, 25 plastic bags, 2 flip flops, 1 nylon sack, and more than 1,00 other pieces of plastic items reportedly found.

Environmentalists worry that this is an example of the dangers of plastic pollution problems that particularly plague Asian nations. According to a recent study, plastic pollution will likely triple within the next decade if there’s no solution. And with about 10m tonnes of plastic garbage finding it’s way to the ocean each year, marine life faces severe trouble.

Environmentalists aren’t positive that the waste was what caused the 31- foot whale’s death. Nonetheless, the amount of debris found is still alarming.

Indonesia ranks as the second largest plastic polluter, next to China.
