Hurrah, hooray – plastic free living is being tried by the BBC – or rather more accurately Christine Jeavans. She has decided to give up plastic for a month and is writing daily bulletins – see the BBC blog.
It feels all heart warming to see that my blog is amongst those listed on her blog roll.

WHY CUT PLASTIC
About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items.
Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
