The Problem with Plastic

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

Last week, I wrote about my wish for a plastic bag ban. I think this infographic does an excellent job of conveying why banning plastic bags, or at least using plastic as little as possible, is so important.

There is a wonderful mockumentary called “The Majestic Plastic Bag”, narrated by Jeremy Irons. Find it on YouTube.
I also respectfully disagree with the message of the infographic: Recycling (which too often is downcycling) is not the answer: the real solution lies in Refusing, Reducing and Re-using. Recycling should come way at the end, as a last resort, and should not make us feel virtuous.

Thank you for letting us know about the mockumentary! I can’t wait to check it out.

I absolutely agree with the three R’s as the real solution!
