Plastic: Bottles, bags, waste

Comment 5th July 2010

How did the plastic bottle become ubiquitous?  How did we allow our country to become littered with plastic bottles.  Consumers now have no choice but to consume out of plastic bottles.  Made from oil, used once and then chucked into landfill, or into the Pacific Ocean gyre or the stomachs of wild birds.

It would be nice to have the freedom to walk in my neighbourhood without plastic waste surrounding me.

 

Outlaw the plastic bottle – the government can do this if it has the courage

Why does this matter?

This is important because plastic is harmful, unnecessary and wasteful.  Tell your grandchildren when the lights go out that we used the last of the oil to make plastic items that found their way into eco systems and which do not degrade instead of using the oil to heat our homes.
