Much is being written and said about plastic bags and the harm it causes our environment. I think we can all agree that the number of plastic bags used by our society and plastic products that are part of our daily lives, is staggering and can seem overwhelming to get a grip on or to find a solution to our dependence on plastic. Let’s face it; it would take a revolution and true commitment and effort on an entire nation – not to mention the world – to stop using plastic. Plastic is a bi-product of our addiction to ease and having the least amount of effort in our everyday lives. Included in the mesh of issues related to plastic and its use is price. Plastic is cheap and allows for savings in the production of products in the immediate. The cost, however, in the long run to our environment and the energy consumed and petroleum used is high. As consumers, looking to save as much as possible, the immediate is of most concern. I think we can all understand and agree on that. However, long term costs need to become part of our thinking process and a recognition that the costs are payable today or tomorrow.
