The list of plastic items we use goes on and on. Many of these things are really useful, and we use them for many years. But some of the things we looked at today in the audit are thrown away almost as soon as they are bought! Remember every single plastic item that you buy will last for hundreds and hundreds of years and cause a lot of harm to other living creatures and the environment.

If things continue on their present course, we will soon experience a major ecological catastrophe.

We all need to do a better job of picking up after ourselves and councils need to do a better job of providing bins which segregate the rubbish and to educate people about recycling. Each community centre should have a recycle facility that people can easily walk to. This would encourage people to recycle more frequently and in smaller amounts. Using soap bars more, get veg box with no plastic every 2 weeks. Try to buy glass instead of plastic. Use coffee cup and have banned single use bottles from house.

While most are willing to come on board progress is very slow. Special offers are packaged and loose fruit and veg tend to be more expensive. In my area businesses say Health and Safety inspectors won't allow customers bring their own containers for meat, fish and deli. Most coffee shops in the town give discounts for reusable cups and only use compostable for take away however the local council will not supply not supply separate bins for compostable cups etc I was a Green School coordinator and am on my local Tidy Towns committee.

Oil is detremetal to our planet. It has caused great destruction with the use of fracking. This has destroyed countless numbers of bestiful forests. Palm oil is also a horrible thing. People in The west indies have suffered great hardships as their jungles have been destroyed. Gorillas are also killed and the ground takes ages to regain nutrients. Finally I feel that the ice caps are melting too quickly. Recently I watched a documentary from David Attenborough where he told me all about the ice caps melting at an alarming rate. This shocked me greatly as some of the icebergs were once 40 feet tall and now they are barely a meter above the water. 4I like to think I,m a very environmetally savvy person.
