Plastic is vile. Plastic is a parasite destroying our planet. It’s multiplying faster than bacteria and we must act now to prevent further destruction.“Fewer than half of the bottles bought in 2016 were collected for recycling and just 7% of those collected were turned into new bottles.Instead most plastic bottles produced end up in landfill or in the ocean.” – stats from The Guardian.
After watching the documentary A Plastic Ocean (trailer in the image caption above), I first cried, then got angry, then got myself together… I did some research and made this list.This list was made to keep me on track, to give me structure and rules to follow. I could no longer live with myself idly making unsustainable choices. I could no longer comfortably participate in humanity’s global plastic binge.
