Plastic sucks. The 20th Century’s miracle material has become one of the 21st Century’s biggest problems, and people don’t seem all that willing to accept that reality. Plastic is responsible for a sizable chunk of carbon emissions, both form production and by nature of being a petroleum product.
It’s also flooding the natural environment with toxins and garbage that literally will not degrade for at least a thousand years. Plastic kills wildlife and destroys habitats. There is no upside, save for making big corporations even richer. Sorry to be blunt here, but once you realize just how nonsensical our widespread use of plastic is, it’s hard not to be more than a little annoyed by it.
