What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
Many that I use daily were either packaged in plastic or have plastic. A lot of the food that I eat come from plastic packaging. Just me, I learned that I use a lot of plastic, so I cant imagine how much a population of a city or a country daily.
