Plastic seems to have come into focus recently, which is great and I hope that changes really do get made. However I do think people have made plastic too easy, too convenient. I think the majority of people will have the why change something that is so easy attitude and not care about the affects it’s having on the environment. It’s all the stores asking you if you want a plastic store card, do we really need loyalty cards? Our bank cards expire after a few years so why don’t the banks offer to melt them down for us, they could be made from a plastic that can be melted and remade into cards again then.
Although one good thing I did see today is Yorkshire tea are trying to come up with a good plastic free tea bag!
I need to check my wools, and stop buying any that aren’t just 100% natural instead of acrylic.
