The problem with plastic is that is lasts forever... and forever is a long time! The impact on the living things in our environment is disasterous. Plastic is being found within the bodies of numerous species, some already endangered.
There are plastic items that are designed to be used once and discarded. Saying no to take-away coffee cups and food containers, straws, plastic bags etc is a great start to a movement towards a sustainable future. Reducing the prevalence of these plastics in our world is the objective of Plastic Free July.
