Title: Stop the use of plastic!
Post by: Steve Hydonus on Mar 29, 2019 03:27 am
Millions of tons of plastic debris pour into marine ecosystems every year. Itís estimated that, by 2050, there will be more plastic garbage than fish in the oceans. Much of this will be single-use packaging. Carry your own reusable bag for groceries and products you buy-otherwise just take what you can in your hands and put it in your car; forget the plastic!

Hi Steve,
Being a man on the go, what do you do for your water? I think I need to help my family invest in a new filter. Growing up, we've held this notion that the water from BPA free plastic bottles was safer then whatever was filtered from the tap. My family still feels this way. A lot of people actually seem to prefer bottled water over a simple filtering system for their house.
Another question is, what happens to the plastic we recycle?
I wonder how many people know the answer to this. ??? For Christmas I was given an amazingly comfortable blanket made solely from recycled plastic bottles.
Found this with a quick search,

The U.S. is one of the only countries in the world that hasn't signed an amendment to the United Nations' Basel Convention that aims to cut down on global plastic waste, the AP reports.
