There is a superb video produced by A Plastic Planet (on their website http://www.aplasticplanet.com), which gets right to the heart of the issues with plastic. Sian Sutherland, a co-founder of the project, whose aim is to have at least one plastic free aisle in supermarkets, states;
“There is absolutely no logic in wrapping something as fleeting as food in something as indestructible as plastic. Plastic food and drink packaging remains useful for a matter of days yet remains a destructive presence on the earth for centuries afterwards.”
So well said…..
