The plastics I refer to in this article are the superfluous plastics. Those that are created for convenience and financial sake only. In fact, products such as plastic utensils are often created to be used once and then tossed into the garbage. These are what I call “daily plastics,” which are completely unnecessary otherwise.

The disposable aspect of daily plastics is clearly an issue for the environment. But the research has shown some compelling data that suggests that we are constantly exposing ourselves to health issues derived from everyday items.

The writer is absolutely correct.  We have to reduce out plastic foot print.   This will be difficult as there are so many industries involved in this who will lobby against any change to plastic usage.  But we have to be smarter than that and seek these non disposable alternatives and make industry follow us rather than lead us.  ‘Manufactured Demand’ is the wrong way to go.
