We see them every day. Single-use plastics (forks, bags, cups, etc.) are the bane of the modern era. For something that is used for approximately 5 minutes, we have to drill for oil, ship it thousands of miles, process it into a product that will never biodegrade, ship it to an end user, and then somehow dispose of it. Insane? You bet. And it’s time we changed the existing paradigm.
We’ve got a great event for you next week. It’s a webinar on win-win plastic bag reduction strategies for business and community. We’ve got a talented panel, and we’re bristling with optimism, because one state in the U.S. just passed the first statewide plastic bag ban. Momentum, it appears, is on our side. Come find out good strategies to use in your area, and join the conversation to ask our panel questions about how to reduce plastic bag usage in your area.
