YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!

YOU are the problem. STOP BUYING THIS JUNK YOU DON'T REALLY NEED
With plastics, I shop with canvas bags, decline plastic bags
for my takeout containers, carry a travel mug in my car in case I want
to buy a drink, and generally just try to opt for any non-plastic
alternative where possible.

In general, I don't take things just because they're on sale or free.
It takes energy and resources to make a product, and more resources to
discard it. If I think I'm not really going to need something, I
don't buy or accept it. The bonus is that it is one less dust-collector
to take up space in my house.

Plastic is everyone's problem.

When you go to the store think - do I REALLY need this cheap plastic item? Can I buy it recycled at Goodwill or another thrift store? Can I live without buying it?



Where will it wind up when it has outlived it's usefulness, a landfill?




Or worse?
