Canada's Plan to Ban Single-Use Plastics....

Canada's Plan to Ban Single-Use Plastics and Make Corporations Responsible for Waste Welcomed as 'Step in the Right Direction'

"Ultimately Canada needs to move towards phasing out all non-essential plastics if we are going to truly reduce the awful plastic legacy we are leaving for future generations of all life on this planet," Sarah King of Greenpeace Canada said in a statement. "The federal government's announcements marks the first step in an essential journey to break free from plastic."

3. The GOP denies the very fact of climate change.

And the US corporate media refuses to cover climate change in a meaningful way.

2. I wish we'd never adopted the convenience of plastic. If we had to bring back our "reusable" glass

and plastic for the deposit, it might seem a hassle, but we'd all be the better for it.

4. But plastics provide a use for oil.

And oil companies are very influential.
