Oh no, no plastic
Last week my friends and I decided to play a game. The game was all about forbidding the use of plastics. We thought it would be easy, as plastics did not contribute much to our lives.
Time began to pass and we started to find it difficult to work without using plastic items.
We could not drink water from the plastics bottles, we could not use plastic buckets. Toys, containers, boxes, bags ... the list is too long. Even the inside of the refrigerator was made up of plastic. So, I was forced to drink warm water even on a hot day. I could not switch on the air conditioner as it too consisted of parts made of plastic.
Can you afford to use an electric iron without the plastic handle or are you brave enough to touch the electric switch without the plastic cover?
It is an old saying that old habits die-hard.
We have been using plastics for years that a life without plastics would be like a fish without water, a tree without leaves, a school without students.
For some it might be difficult to believe what I say. For those I can suggest, that they should try playing the game, which I played last week.
