I have been so busy with work and other things that I have not had much time to write here. I have found some interesting articles that I wish to write about, but for now I'll offer a TED video on the "economic injustice of plastic".
It's an interesting perspective about how plastic affects the poor people disproportionately. His introduction, about how it might have been better that the oil spill in the Gulf happened rather than have the oil be used to contribute to global warming, creating plastic and so on, is quite controversial though. Honestly, both options are actually non-options, but if that makes you sit up and continue listening to the talk then I guess such an introduction works.
The video does not provide that much details or elaboration but at least it enlightens you and makes you aware of more perils of plastic besides the environment and wildlife.
