I was shelling on a beach yesterday. I kept finding bits of plastic – a lid, part of a pail, a grocery sack – and it struck me, what would happen if manufacturers woke up one day and stopped making plastic items? Just simply stopped.
I am pretty sure that the world would not come to its demise. Actually, it may even slow our demise. Although the reports I read tell a grim tale of how it is too late.
I like my food, drinks and such in glass. It seems more civilized somehow. But, I am bit old fashioned.
It was a passing day dream. I kept walking in the waves picking up gifts of nature that I collect, take home and sort into glass jars.
PS. Any item needed in the medical world made from plastic makes sense. But, prescription bottles could be glass.
PPS. I have stated very clearly that when I die my shell collection should be returned to Mother Ocean (after my daughter chooses what to keep of course).
