Ok to be cool we really have to Stop Sucking. We can no longer dance around the disgusting issue of the ongoing use of single use plastic. It is time to refuse it as polymers are showing up in all of the worlds drinkable water, our food system and in the bellies of babes of every species. Use your intelligence, think about the end game of your actions. Strap on a portable cup, be adamant and just say no to the stuff that is killing us and the oceans. If you don't want to stink you really have to do more than take a shower you have to stop contributing to a terrible end game.
The State University of New York at Fredonia's, Department of Geology & Environmental Sciences published this report on SYNTHETIC POLYMER CONTAMINATION IN BOTTLED WATER saying "Of the 159 samples analyzed, 83% were found to contain plastic particles. The highest density of plastic per volume of tap water was found in North America and the lowest densities were found, collectively, in seven European countries."
One thing you can do other than raising a big stink is to adopt the Four R's of the Plastic Pollution Coalition
REFUSE disposable plastic whenever and wherever possible. Choose items that are not packaged in plastic, and carry your own bags, containers and utensils. Say 'no straw, please.'
REDUCE your plastic footprint. Cut down on your consumption of goods that contain excessive plastic packaging and parts. If it will leave behind plastic trash, don't buy it.
REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items. Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic and bamboo over plastic.
RECYCLE what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse. Pay attention to the entire life cycle of items you bring into your life, from source to manufacturing to distribution to disposal.
