This year magazines, companies, celebrities and nonprofits are all challenging consumers to reduce their use of plastic in order to save wildlife, and help decrease pollution. Large companies like Starbucks have announced they will discontinue their use of straws in their USA based stores. Other retailers in the United States have already stopped providing free plastic bags with a purchase.
Do you think it is important to reduce the use of plastic?
Have you you seen signs of the anti-plastic trend in your country? What have you seen?
Do you have ideas about how companies or individuals can reduce dependence on plastic?
I look forward to your comments!
