Plastic! …plastic! Plastic everywhere.It is more than half a century since plastic was invented and became very much a part of our existence. It is only now that we are realizing the devastating residual effect of our dependence on plastic products – THE DISPOSAL OF WASTE PLASTIC PRODUCTS!Plastic is non-biodegradable and should not go into landfills. Burning them is definitely out of the question! Recycling them is turning out to be a myth! Curb side collected plastic wastes are actually reprocessed into different end products. Truth is only virgin plastics are used in the manufacture of new plastic bags and containers. And so, we see no end to the onslaught of plastic materials into our environment.This problem can be solved though by reducing our dependence on plastic products such as plastic shopping bags. In our own little way, we can help reduce the demand for plastic bags by using reusable shopping bags made of cotton.We can even take it a step further by crusading against the use of plastic shopping bags and trash bags among our friends and relatives. Encourage them to use reusable shopping bags made of cotton! This small step will go a long way in protecting our environment and Mother Earth from a major man made catastrophe! Make this as a personal advocacy and get everyone in your family circle involved and miracles will happen. Buy and use reusable shopping bags made of cotton.One on-line source for such is http://www.cozyhomewares.com/.You can buy bags in different colors from them like those shown below. I understand that shipping is free. Get everyone else to do the same. Be an advocate for Mother Earth.
