Give Plastic the Respect it Deserves!

Lansdowne EAC NEWS (1)

Plastic pollution is a big problem for our town, our region, our country, and our planet. But plastic is not, on its own, horrible. In fact, it’s a wonder product!

Plastic pollution is a big problem for our town, our region, our country, and our planet.  But plastic is not, on its own, horrible.  In fact, it’s a wonder product!  Plastic parts make vehicles lighter so they need less fuel.  Plastic airbags save countless lives.  Plastic products enable hospital personnel to keep infectious fluids reliably separate from things that could become contaminated.  Our problem isn’t plastic itself—it’s our attitude towards plastic.  We treat this wonder product like it’s something to use once and then throw away.  Should we really throw away something so amazingly waterproof, flexible, and lightweight?  Instead of throwing plastic away, take this challenge:  decide you’ll never, ever buy new zipper-seal bags or plastic wrap for the rest of your life.  Your attitude towards the ziplock bags and plastic wrap you have now will change!  You’ll wash them, treasure them, and reuse them.  And because you and others like you won’t buy new plastic, packaging industries will receive a market signal that they need to design and sell non-plastic wrappings.  This could be your first step towards reducing your “plastic footprint” on this planet.
