Going Plastic-less In The U.S.
Plastic in the oceans. Plastic on the beaches, berms and ditches that line the roadways.
A lot of that plastic has been used just once. In fact, geologists estimate that the entire earth could be covered with discarded single-use plastic such as straws, cups, plates and bags.
And that plastic isn’t going away.
In response, some cities want to ban single-use plastics.
Today on All Sides, the shift away from plastic and toward zero waste.
