NO, We don't want "more plastic recycling"!

26 September 2022

Good reasons to rethink our addiction to unnecessary plastics?      People and planetary health!!

 

Single stream, with its lack of transparency and heightened contamination, adds to the plastic pollution problem. What plastic in your home could be replaced with something that is reusable, compostable, or dissolvable? Toothpaste is now available in chewable tablets, laundry detergent is available in dehydrated strips. Of course I use reusable shopping bags, and I carry my own reusable, to-go container when I eat out.

 

Check out the two documentaries: Plastic Wars, a PBS Frontline special

The Story of Plastic by the same folks who did The Story of Stuff.
