Single Use Plastic

The conversation I had in my local shop this morning, when the man behind the counter automatically put my pint of milk and packet of almonds in a black plastic bag:

 – No thanks, I don’t need a bag

– It’ll not make any difference to the environment

It’s single use plastic, of course it will…

His defensiveness and poor attempt at shop humour caught me off guard, as I was making no judgement of him, just the plastic bag. Then again, I suppose none of us are comfortable with self judgement…

This thought originated from a Plastic Solutions Lab I was invited to near Brussels, where I met a fantastic mix of activists, artists and policy makers.
