Why I do my best to avoid single-use plastic

In a well-researched, authoritative article, Tiffany Duong exposes the lie that recycling works.

Our planet is choking in plastic waste. This is one of the major forces driving us toward planetary extinction. Why? Because the petrochemical industry wants to maximise its profits, thank you.

There are ALWAYS alternatives to using the stuff in the first place, even during a pandemic. If the real cost of plastics was included in the price, we could not afford them.

So, the proper order of actions is:
REFUSE to use.
REUSE as many times as possible.
RECYCLE is an act of last resort.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
