    • Late is never a problem.
      And yes, plastic is. It was an amazing innovation that brought so many practical improvements to our lives and it has taken a long time to discover the damage it causes. It is the hidden use that is most worrying. Most of us are cutting back in the obvious plastic bottles and carrier bags but things like plastic in tea bags are harder to understand and remember.


      • It is surprising what is covered in plastic now… I can’t understand the likes of some cucumbers being in plastic. And some food containers you can’t even recycle. There really does need to be a radical change in our use of plastics.


  1. Finally I got here – because of internet connection:) I’m contemplation changing blog backgrounds because of this.
    Am glad your indignant post fits with mine (it takes some courage at wordpress to be “off” color! Had already the comment of a host, that I had to keep in mind that the challenge I linked to, was to be meant fun, friendly, light hearted, etc. Well, some things just aren’t!) so, good for you to this opinion in yourpost!

      • I agree entirely. An irony is that my town has banned plastic bags from grocery stores and restaurants, yet the town requires that large plastic bags must be used for weekly trash collection instead of bins. So much hypocrisy and waste. Best, Babsje


    • You’re right, Elke. Plight and plastic go well together.
      I think they were very pleased to get the attention – I was with a group of photographers walking around Westminster in the morning after the last election
