I watch a lot of weird documentaries. For research purposes and so I don’t have to write. Ahem, I mean, so I can think of new twists to add to stories. Yeah, that’s it. So I watched this documentary on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
It was a bit depressing.
Plastic is a great thing. And it’s a horrible thing. There’s no denying that plastic saves lives and makes life easier. But I left seeing the destruction this material causes to our environment and the food chain.
All of which will come back to bite us in the butt. It’s only nibbling now.
So, I’ve decided to do some small changes to reduce my plastic ration. I already have my own cloth grocery bags, so that’s simple.
For my dog walks, I’ll use these instead of grocery bags: They’re biodegradable.
These are two small changes, but I think small changes can do a lot one the long run.
