The focus this year is plastics, specifically ending plastics pollution:
From poisoning and injuring marine life to the ubiquitous presence of plastics in our food to disrupting human hormones and causing major life-threatening diseases and early puberty, the exponential growth of plastics is threatening our planet’s survival.
One small step suggested-- give up plastic drinking straws. (Actually, this will be a huge step for me. My grandchildren have actually accused me of owning my own straw manufacturing plant. 😞)
Our consumption of plastic straws in the United States alone equals enough straws to wrap around the earth's circumference 2.5 times a day. We are smothering the planet.
I recycle and compost religiously but I can do better, especially as I grocery shop and sip my fruit smoothies.
* Good to be reminded these days that no one is all bad, so thank-you Richard Nixon.
