Plastic - Friend or Foe?
Plastic is everywhere. There is no escaping this reality. There is no disputing the fact that this revolutionary and useful material has made possible some wonderful advances in our modern world but we must consider the fact that plastic is an extremely durable material that does not break down. So what happens to it? Almost every single piece of plastic that has ever been produced still exists in some shape or form. Yes it can be recycled, some types more easily than others, but the fact of the matter is that very little of the plastic being used on a daily basis actually ends up recycled. 50 percent of the plastic we use is used one time and then thrown away. How does this make any sense?
The good news is YOU can make a diffence! The situation can be improved as each of us takes the initiative to make small changes, one at a time, and do our part to stem the plastic trash tide.
