Plymouth’s Green Space
- October 4th, 2017
Plastic! It’s everywhere. Can’t live without it, or so it seems, unhealthy for the environment and ultimately unhealthy for most living beings. One estimate believes the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic, every minute, every day, all year long is being dumped into our oceans. Of course, plastic bags, single-use products, water bottles but even the microbeads found in some toothpastes find their way into the mouths of sea turtles, seabirds and whales. The end for them is not good. The hope is to make the use of plastics so undesirable and so unpopular that eventually the future is free of plastic pollution. Start with a canvas shopping bag and a glass water bottle and recycle.
