It’s 2020 and we need to be really honest about something: Plastic is a huge problem. Everyone knows that the material harmful to the environment that it often finds itself in but how big of a problem is something that we’re shielded from. Plastic pollution is a massive issue that will take decades to clean up and the only way to cut down on it is to stop using it.
This is a difficult issue because plastic is the best and most accessible choice for many products that we use. From the absolutely necessary supplies of the medical industry to the easy to use kitchen tools in homes. Plastic is everywhere and the use of it actually went up in the last year.
More stringent government regulation is needed to quell the flood of the stuff on one end but we also need to redouble or efforts as individuals to cut down on plastic where we can. Maybe you can’t go all reusable options but remember, as always, every little bit helps!
