I am working on a presentation on the above theme. It takes in ‘peak oil’ and other costs of our oil ‘addiction’ as well as the direct impact of oil-based plastic on global overwarming. It will also question whether the ‘fix’ of so-called bioplastics (or, better, ‘agroplastics’) take us much farther foreward. Indeed in some forms they can be worse. In any case, the only soluton is a general ‘downsizing’ and often simply saying ‘no’ to assorted goods and services: in other words not just ‘better’ but also also and more so ‘less.
Constructive criticism will be welcome.
