I have always had a strong dislike for plastic. In order to stop the problem we must go to the source of the problem. Plastic is a by product of oil refining. Lest we forget, oil refining is big business. I wish we could stop plastic use but I fear it is almost too late. Almost everywhere you look there is some form of it. Finally, not all plastics can be, or are recycled.

This is a very sad fact of life it is unfortunate
but our life style is geared to plastics and how do we stop it or reverse the process,as everyone knows plastics are industry money driven.

Even more dismal is the fact that we recycle diddly dot squat of what is produced.
